Denver is the Top City to be a Real Estate Agent

Three Colorado cities have landed on REALTOR® Mag’s list of The Best Places to be a Real Estate Agent.

Denver came in at No. 1, while Aurora and Colorado Springs snagged the No. 5 and No. 9 spots, respectively.

“The weather is great in Denver, with around 300 days of sunshine a year,” said Mark Callaghan, a broker associate in Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Devonshire office in Cherry Creek. “The sun makes most people happy and want to buy homes in Denver.”

The list is based on a WalletHub comparison of the 150 largest cities across 13 key metrics, such as sales per agent and the annual median wage of agents.

Among the findings in Colorado, Aurora had the fifth-highest turnover rate, and Denver had the fourth-highest housing market health index.

Here’s the list of the Top 15 Best Places to be a Real Estate Agent:

  1. Denver, Colorado
  2. Irvine, California
  3. Seattle, Washington
  4. Austin, Texas
