Location: Boulder

Rank: 6 in the medium company category

The culture: 8z Real Estate has wholeheartedly adopted its mission statement: “Real Estate is broken, we are fixing it.” When hiring, 8z looks for Realtors who believe and follow the company’s core values. “The commitment to put clients first is a priority in all decisions that affect a client.”

Perks: When an employee chooses to buy or sell a home with an 8z Realtor, the company gives a $1,000 thank-you back for choosing 8z. If an employee refers a friend who buys or sells a home with an 8z Realtor, they receive a $250 referral.

Giving back: 8z Real Estate supports the Greenhouse Scholars program by making a donation on behalf of every client after closing. 8z is also an event sponsor of the Colorado Venus de Miles bike ride, gifting $10,000 cash funding, providing volunteers, a rest station and entertainment at the finishers festival. 8z Real Estate staff founded the nonprofit Salute Colorado, which supports veterans in their post-service careers.

The inside scoop: From 8z Realtor Ami Quass: “I had worked with people who didn’t have integrity. When I read 8z’s motto, that real estate is broken, I agreed. As a Realtor, we are working for the client, not ourselves. I wanted to find a brokerage that I would work at for the rest of my career. I like the atmosphere of my office where everyone works hard, is professional and genuine.”
