BEST ARCHITECTURE FIRM

OZ ARCHITECTURE

OZ Architecture focuses on innovative design in a collaborative environment. The company designs cities, towns, neighborhoods and the individual buildings that contribute to them – everything from senior living communities to higher-education facilities and hotels and resorts. OZ’s projects include Arrow Electronics’ 236,500-square-foot headquarters building in Centennial; the 15,730-square-foot Silverthorne Performing Arts Center in Summit County; and Punch Bowl Social at Stapleton. OZ even created the new design and master plan for McMurdo Station, a 58-year-old sub-zero campus in Antarctica. The plan will consolidate more than 100 structures spread across 164 acres into six connected buildings totaling 300,000 square feet.

BEST PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

ATLAS REAL ESTATE GROUP

Atlas Real Estate Group owns and manages property; it also helps other property owners save for retirement. “By helping people understand investment real estate as an asset class, we can show them how to build wealth over time,” President Tony Julianelle says. The firm also knows the importance of safe and quality housing, and believes residents should be treated with dignity and respect. “We take pride in serving our residents’ needs, educating them through regular communication and responding quickly to maintenance calls.” 

New this year is Atlas’ Employee Equity Ownership Plan (EEOP). The plan allows employees to become company equity holders by offering them the ability to purchase units of Atlas. New workplace enhancements include a solar energy-powered building, electric car charging stations and health and wellness benefits.

BEST REAL ESTATE AGENCY – COMMERCIAL

RE/MAX

Agents at RE/MAX can work any commercial property types, in any market. That’s different from the traditional model of commercial real estate existing in silos where commercial agents are required to work one or two property types within a narrowly defined region. Agents also keep more of what they earn with RE/MAX’s maximum commission concept, and can take coursework for the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) Institute designation online through RE/MAX University. 

RE/MAX Commercial had a 37 percent increase in transaction volume from 2016 to 2017 and an 11 percent growth in transaction volume from 2017-2018. There are more than 3,400 RE/MAX commercial practitioners across 73 countries.

8Z REAL ESTATE

8z holds its agents to high standards of professionalism and production. There are no part-time agents at 8z, and each agent is required to complete at least 10 transactions a year. “All of our agents are hyper-local experts, meaning they specialize in the local community they live in,” says Jared Smith, marketing manager. “Also, there is a deep company ethos of clients first, and it shows; we have more five-star Zillow reviews than any other brokerage in Colorado.”

The firm recently introduced a membership program for clients. The 8z Collective includes exclusive perks and benefits for anyone who buys a home with 8z, and helps 8z stay connected to clients long after the transaction.

BEST HOMEBUILDER

303 DEVELOPMENT

303 Development is a design-build homebuilder that brings extensive experience, detailed communications, financial transparency and a turnkey process to its projects. The company’s attention to detail and proactive problem-solving attitude sets it apart from the competition. The company also believes in giving back to the community. In September, 303 teamed up with Epic homes to build a ramp and new entryway for a couple in Denver to improve their quality of life. The companies redid the sidewalk, added two new doors with easy-access ramps and a new ceiling fan for the residents who were home-bound for the previous four months.
