2020 HW Vanguard: Gretchen Rosenberg

Kentwood Real Estate, President and CEO

Gretchen Rosenberg, President and CEO, Kentwood Real Estate

Gretchen Rosenberg’s role first and foremost is to support Kentwood Real Estate brokers. 

Today, Rosenberg leads Kentwood’s growing team of more than 240 Realtors in Colorado’s finest luxury brokerage, which has produced more volume per agent than 99% of all real estate companies in the U.S. Rosenberg credits this to Kentwood brokers’ deep commitment to professionalism, local knowledge, expertise and customer experience. 

Under Rosenberg’s leadership, Kentwood agents closed more than $2 billion in total sales volume and closed more than 3,000 transactions last year. The overall average sales price notably rose year-over-year to $767,556, with four of the top 10 highest-priced home sales in metro Denver. This was more than any other brokerage in the top 10, and included the top home sale ever on record in Denver at $11,625,000, as well as the highest-priced condominium, which sold at $5,359,975, according to REColorado data. 

Additionally, Rosenberg has ably led Kentwood Real Estate through the COVID-19 pandemic. As other brokerages scrambled for direction, Rosenberg’s proactive leadership kept Kentwood’s real estate brokers in front of the crisis by issuing guidance with every new milestone. Rosenberg educated stakeholders on new regulations in real time, quickly launched virtual tools for the home-buying and selling process and was available 24/7 as a resource to any member of the organization for absolutely anything. 

Rosenberg’s leadership at Kentwood buttressed an otherwise tumultuous period in the real estate industry, maintaining the safety of her brokers and their clients and positioning Kentwood as a community and industry leader.
