98 April 2017 RISMedia's REAL ESTATE {Broker Best Practices} Efficiency and Innovation Key to Remaining on the Cutting Edge of Success by Gabrielle van Welie Lynn Chute Designated Broker HomeSmart Realty Group Greenwood Village, Colo. www.HSRealtyGroup.com Region served: Denver and surrounding areas Years in real estate: 19 Number of offices: 3 Number of agents: 600 What is the most significant trend positively affecting your business right now? The upswing in the economy in the Denver area and the continuing desirability for living in this region continue to have a huge influence on the real estate market. The addition of jobs, as well as the relocation of major business, has created a huge influx of profession- als and families who wish to make the Denver area home. What are some of the current trends you see in your market right now? In this area, there is a huge demand for residential housing and a shrink- ing inventory of homes.
