Atlas Real Estate is honored to be named Top Company 2018: Real Estate by ColoradoBiz Magazine. The Top Company awards are determined by notable achievements, challenges surmounted, financial performance, and community engagement.
What the Awards Mean to Atlas
Receiving such prestigious recognition only emphasizes Atlas’ goal to cultivate community by providing safe and quality homes while introducing rental real estate as the foundation for long-term savings. The Atlas team’s unwavering commitment to creating a more vibrant, connected and equitable community manifests in its contributions to numerous nonprofits, boards and institutions as well in how it approaches the wellbeing of all Atlas constituents.
One of Atlas’ business goals is to double its number of employees over the next 5 years, thereby giving more qualified people in our communities the opportunity to work in a culture that is empowering, stimulating, passionate and uniquely Atlas. We take our responsibility to contribute to Colorado’s economy seriously and creating job opportunities for qualified candidates is one way of fulfilling that responsibility while addressing an economic need.
Atlas is taking the opportunity to address two serious problems that our state and country face. The first is the need for an adequate supply of safe and quality homes, a service we currently provide to our tenant-residents; in fact, this is a cornerstone of our business. Today we serve approximately 2,300 families residing in our homes in Denver and Colorado Springs, yet in the next 5 years, we intend to provide over 5,000 homes of good value for families in Colorado and potentially in other states.
The second major problem we plan to address is the dearth of long-term savings for retirement amongst Americans. Studies show that most Americans worry that their savings will fall short in retirement, a reasonable concern given that the average household spends more than $40,000 per year in retirement, the average person collects less than $17,000 in Social Security (Bureau of Labor Statistics), and Baby Boomers have approximately $100,000 for retirement. That’s a recipe for financial disaster that we can address through rental real estate—one of the best tools known to provide passive income for long-term financial security. To that end, Atlas is on a crusade to apply our deep knowledge and experience to help people buy investment real estate to the tune of dozens of properties/month over the next 5 years.
By harnessing the dedication and motivation of our team and maximizing our capacity for growth, we plan to fulfill our future goals and positively impact Colorado’s future at the same time.
About the Top Company Awards
For the past 31 years, ColoradoBiz Magazine has been recognizing the leaders of business in 14 industries through the Top Company Awards. Participants submit nominations, detailing their notable achievements, challenges surmounted, financial performance (to be shared only among judges), and community engagement.
As in years past, Deloitte — one of four presenting sponsors along with Moye White, Versatility and Colorado State Bank and Trust — then narrowed the nominees to three finalists in each category. From there, a judging panel made up of ColoradoBiz editorial staffers and business leaders dissected, discussed and sometimes argued the merits of each finalist, selecting the winners based on three aforementioned criteria: outstanding achievement, financial performance and community involvement.
