The New (and cheap) Vacation Home.

 
Rolling Huts 
Methow Valley, Washington

Where is Dwell Denver Going?

By Lane Walsh, Broker/Owner


Where we are going?

When I started kicking around the idea of opening a real estate firm in central Denver several years ago, I did what most small business owners do.  I fretted about the name, I pored over logos and pantone colors, I wondered what kind of agents I would attract, I questioned whether or not it would be worth it to even go in this direction.  I also spent a lot of time pondering our "value proposition."  What would make Dwell Denver Real Estate different than any other company?  What would make a Dwell Denver agent recognizable in the community?  This is not an easy answer in my line of work considering an agent's most valuable asset is their knowledge, skill and…
