Our company specializes in the management of single-family homes. Unlike most of our competitors, we believe in “quality, not quantity” and treat every home under our care as if it were one of our own rental properties. So, whether you’re an individual homeowner, or an investor with multiple rental homes, we take over the burden of being a landlord so you don’t have to deal with the headaches and the hassle.


Why let your valuable asset be managed by someone with little to no experience managing rental property? The owners of Home Realty & Management are recognized leaders in the property management industry. Our leaders have served as President of Denver’s Property Manager Association, as well as serving many years on its Board, and, have taught and spoke at local and state Property Management Conferences, and have recently received Colorado’s Investor Profitability Award.


We are a small, family-owned business that is optimized to provide cutting-edge technology and management software, without sacrificing the familiarity of working directly with a true professional. Say goodbye to departmental and corporate setups as both clients and tenants work with one property manager to make communication and management seamless.


Home Realty & Management only manages single-family homes within approximately 30 minutes of our office so you can focus your time and talents on other matters in your life, instead of worrying if your rental property is being tended to as needed.
