What does FIVE STAR mean? I know I like my dining establishments and hotels to be FIVE STAR, but what does it mean in the real estate world? Crescendo Business Services, in conjunction with QMI Research, recently completed a research/recognition study to find real estate agents in the greater Denver Metro area who consistently wowed their customers. 5280 Magazine published an extensive list of professionals who have shown exceptional technical skills, integrity and knowledge of their markets. RE/MAX of Boulder is very proud to announce that our office had sixteen FIVE STAR Agents. They are:

Experts tell us that at least 90 percent of homebuyers rely on real estate agents for advice and guidance. With over 13,700 real estate licensees in the Denver metro area, the question presents itself, how do you find someone who knows the market, represents your interests and operates with an emphasis on integrity and service? The September issue of 5280 Magazine can help you.
Crescendo surveyed by mail and phone, all Denver residents who purchased a home worth more that $100,000 within an 18-month period (3/08 – 9/09) plus 10,000 subscribers to 5280. An additional 870 surveys were sent to mortgage and title companies who work day to day with agents and are often best able to judge their skills and knowledge. The agents were evaluated on nine criteria: customer service, communication, finding the right home, integrity, negotiation, marketing the home, market knowledge, closing preparation and overall satisfaction. Safeguards were used in the review process to validate the final choices.
The results are an elite group of Denver/Boulder professionals, 927 to be exact, who represent less than 7 percent of all licensed agents. We hope these 16 FIVE STAR RE/MAX of Boulder agents, along with our 74 other excellent professional Realtors® at 2425 Canyon Blvd. will be useful if you are buying or selling a home.
