Fifth-Generation Coloradan Taps Rural Real Estate Market

Kenneth Monfort got his start before graduating college, setting him up for success and a run at the top young professional in Colorado

KENNETH MONFORT, 25

OWNER + DIRECTOR, MONFORT COMPANIES, DENVER

Before he even graduated from the University of Denver, this fifth-generation Coloradan started his career in commercial real estate with a focus on often-overlooked rural communities throughout Colorado, Wyoming and Kansas. Now, Monfort has turned his attention to the West Lot development, a transformative project in the heart of Denver’s LoDo neighborhood in conjunction with his family and the Colorado Rockies partners.

“It’s boring doing things alone and for yourself,” Monfort says — and he means it.

He currently serves as a board member of the University of Denver Advancement Committee, the Colorado Restaurant Association, the Colorado Republicans Independent Expenditure Committee and the Butterfly Pavilion. He volunteers with the Stronger Cord program at the Denver Rescue Mission and the YESS Children’s Institute within Denver Public Schools and is a member of the Denver Active 20-30 Children's Foundation, which annually raises and grants more than $1.5 million to local children’s charities.
