The Denver Post has published the 2018 edition of the Denver Post Top Workplaces list, a ranking of the best places to work in Colorado. We're delighted that Live Urban Real Estate has been named a Small Business Top Workplace for the 6th consecutive year!

The Denver Post Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

denver street sweeping

It’s officially springtime in Denver, Colorado, and with the blossoming trees and warming temps comes the dreaded street sweeping. If you live or work near the metropolitan area (Downtown, Capitol Hill, Rhino, The Highlands, etc.), you know the feeling of making your way to your car only to discover that little yellow envelope tucked into your door frame… the one that costs you $50 and induces frustration like only a parking ticket can (as of 2018). As the street sweepers begin their full April invasion, don’t forget to sign up for Denver’s reminder tool so that you can avoid that unnecessary yellow envelope.

Change the face of Denver Real Estate

Last month, the average Denver single family home price exceeded half a million dollars. This local milestone represents years worth of equity climbs, low inventory, and the changing Mile High City as a whole.

Since 2014, Metro Denver has seen record high home prices and record low days on market... especially in the entry-level and more affordable home sectors.

Those seeking an affordable home in or around Denver have struggled through stressful multiple offers and price tags that they simply couldn’t afford. Real estate experts agree that this extreme seller’s market is due mostly to the area’s listing shortage. 

Colorado Ballot Measure 66 

And yet, a ballot measure is working its way into the November elections that would limit new housing growth to 1% or less of the existing homes in Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, El Paso, Jefferson, Larimer, and Weld counties. Colorado initiative #66 would clearly have a wide-reaching impact on Denver’s housing market.
