After a decade of skyrocketing home prices in Denver, 2022’s inflation-battling interest rate hikes finally started to slow the frenzy. “It’s a good time, frankly, for those who have been shut out,” says Nobu Hata, CEO of the Denver Metro Association of Realtors. “There’s hope again, with a lot less competition.” Although inventory is still low, Hata expects the local market to start stabilizing in 2023, which could mean the return of recently unheard-of arrangements like seller concessions and buy-down rates. “You almost need to talk to an agent who’s been through this before, in order to guide you through all the new lingo we haven’t used in the last few years,” Hata says. That’s where our directory of real estate professionals—all of whom produced among the highest sales volumes in the metro area in 2021 (the most current data available at press time)—comes in handy. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, harnessing the expertise of one of these agents may help deliver you quickly and (hopefully) painlessly to the ultimate goal: closing day.

Your questions about the Top Real Estate Producers list, answered.
How do you create this list?
In June 2022, 5280 posted its Top Real Estate Producers survey. The link to the online questionnaire was sent out to dozens of real estate brokerages in the seven metro-area counties; it was also shared via social media. Any brokerage with agents who sell homes in the Denver metro area could submit nominations. The survey asked brokerage administrators to provide the names of both individual agents and teams of agents who, based on their sales volumes for 2021, qualified for our list. Nominees in hand, our research department reached out to each agent to confirm the sales numbers and to gather and/or verify basic contact information.
What qualifies someone to be a Top Real Estate Producer?
We have four categories: individual agents, teams of two agents, teams of three to five agents, and teams of six to 15 agents. Within each category, we have two tiers: black diamond and double black diamond, which signify different levels of (impressive!) sales volumes. To be on the list, an agent or team of agents must have sold real estate within the Denver metro area and attained a certain amount of sales in 2021. Agents must also have an active license with the state’s Department of Regulatory Agencies; that license must be in good standing, without any disciplinary actions within the past five years.
I’m looking at the list and there seem to be teams in, say, the six to 15 category that only have five agents. What’s that about?
As in any business setting, people come and go. Because we want this list to be a useful reference for you, we have only included current members of teams. So, while there may have been seven people responsible for the team’s 2021 sales volume—which would put that group in the six-plus category—only five may still be working with that squad today.
I’ve heard that being on the list requires an agent or a brokerage to advertise with 5280—is this true?
Nope. Inclusion in the Top Real Estate Producers list is not dependent upon the decision to advertise with the magazine. Sometimes agents and brokerages decide to advertise; however, if, when, and/or how much anyone advertises is not taken into consideration when compiling the list.
I’m an agent, but my brokerage didn’t receive the survey this year. How do we participate in the future?
The next Top Real Estate Producers list will likely run in March 2024. The survey should be live and available to metro-area brokerage managers who visit submit.5280.com/top-producers in the summer of 2023. If you have questions about participation, please call 303-832-5280 at any time.
