denver, colorado

The 44th Denver Metro Association of REALTORS® (DMAR) — an organization that encompasses over 8,000 licensed real estate professionals and industry partners in the area — held its annual Excellence Awards ceremony yesterday at the Grand Hyatt in downtown Denver. Emceed by Scott Peterson, General Counsel for the Colorado Association of REALTORS®, the yearly event is hosted to acknowledge the incredible achievements of Denver-area brokers in relation to total sales volume and number of homes sold in 2021— and milehimodern brokers have, once again, dominated with a list of accolades.

“Our milehimodern brokers are consummate professionals. We are beyond proud of their performance in leading our real estate market!” said Co-Owner Carla Thompson.

Broker growth is a pillar of milehimodern’s standards of excellence, with many brokers seeing exponential increases in production within just one year after joining the firm. milehimodern brokers received awards across six different categories, an indicator of broker excellence. Additionally, mhm received special recognition, being awarded No. 2 for total sales production and number of transactions for real estate offices with 101-200 agents.

“We have grown to more than 1.4 billion in sales in only three years,” said Carmelo Paglialunga, Co-Owner of milehimodern. “This is because our milehimodern brokers are driven to be the best. In all that they do, they command the highest representation, and our buyers and sellers deeply appreciate their commitment. They are consistently outperforming the market.”

As Colorado’s Front Range continues to transform, buyers, sellers and brokers have adapted their strategies to stand out in the competitive landscape. Part of what makes milehimodern brokers trusted guides for their clients is their exceptional transactional finesse. We are honored to recognize the following brokers for their achievements.
