Bringing “Better” to Boulder: PorchLight Opens Boulder Office
Denver Real Estate Company expands services to Boulder with new office on Broadway
BOULDER, CO :: April 4, 2018—PorchLight Real Estate Group, a residential real estate brokerage serving the greater Denver metro area, today announced the opening of their newest office in downtown Boulder at 2500 Broadway. PorchLight has partnered with Jay Hebb, a Boulder resident and real estate professional with deep industry expertise. With over $1 billion in Boulder transactions under his management, Jay is well positioned to introduce the brand to Boulder County, and will serve as President & CEO of PorchLight’s Boulder office.
PorchLight opened in 2005, and has long been viewed as a unique hybrid of independent boutique agency and first-class, über-full-service brokerage in central Denver. In recent years, the firm has made headway in expanding its reach into other cities, including opening a DTC office in 2015, followed by new central Denver offices—Cherry Creek in 2016, and Highlands Square in 2017. The new Boulder office is part of the company’s strategic plan to enter top housing markets with a strong economy, while still maintaining an independent vibe by teaming up with established local experts. By partnering with Hebb—and launching the office with a bevy of long-time Boulder-based agents—PorchLight promises to be a major player in the Boulder real estate arena.
“After moving to Boulder in 2016, I quickly fell in love with the city and the people and knew that it was the perfect place for PorchLight to expand,” said PorchLight co-founder and CEO Amy Bayer. “And when I met Jay, I knew he’d make the ideal partner for the expansion. With his Boulder expertise and PorchLight’s unparalleled technology, systems and services, we get to offer Boulder agents and their clients a better experience than they’ve ever had!”
Comparative statistics, customer testimonials, and media awards back up the company’s brand promise of “A better agent. A better experience.” Through advanced agent education, proprietary technology, and superior support services, PorchLight has climbed to be one of the highest producing independent brokerages in Colorado, and comes in lower on average days on market, and higher on average sold-to-list price ratio than any of their competitors. PorchLight boasts five-star ratings on Yelp, Facebook and Google, and has won a plethora of awards and recognitions in recent years, including being named to the Denver Business Journal’s Fastest Growing Private Companies, and being honored as one of The Denver Post’s Top Workplaces four years in a row.
The opening of its Boulder office is just the latest in big moves by PorchLight toward smart growth. In 2017, the company promoted Heather Heuer to be the President & Employing Broker of PorchLight’s Denver offices, and hired Christina Ortiz Bluth as Chief Operating Officer for the entire company. Ortiz Bluth has spent her professional career in operational, financial and sales leadership roles in high-growth companies and will lead further expansion and development initiatives at PorchLight.
“When I learned about PorchLight’s unique setup and dedication to culture, collaboration and service, I knew we were a good match,” said Hebb. “With more than 15 years of experience in the Boulder market, I can safely say that PorchLight will bring a brokerage and client experience better than the city has ever seen.”
