RETS Associates (RETS), a leading national real estate recruiting firm serving the Denver area since 2011, today announced the opening of its new office in downtown Denver, Colorado. Located at 1550 Wewatta Street, the new location positions RETS at the epicenter of the seventh most attractive market in the Western Hemisphere for real estate investment, according to a recent report from CBRE. Having dedicated office space in Denver will enable the firm to best serve new and existing clients’ growing demand for real estate talent in the region.
Three members of the RETS management team will call the Denver office home.
