Carol Tenley, a leading real estate professional with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s North Metro office in Westminster, has been named a Five Star Real Estate Agent by Denver’s 5280 Magazine.

Tenley and the 2011 list of the area’s outstanding real estate agents are published in the September issue of 5280 Magazine.  This is the second consecutive year that she has been recognized by the publication.

In partnership with Crescendo Business Services, 5280 Magazine surveyed all Denver area residents who purchased a home valued at more than $100,000 along with more than 10,000 subscribers to 5280 Magazine.  An additional 870 surveys were sent to mortgage and title companies who are often best at judging a real estate agent’s technical skills and knowledge. 

The subsequent list of Five Star Real Estate Agents is an elite group, representing less than seven percent of the licensed agents in the Denver area.  Out of 13,700 metro Denver residents holding a real estate license, only 927 of the top-scoring real estate agents made this year’s list. 

Tenley started her real estate career with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in 2004.  She is a Cartus Network Relocation Specialist, a Cartus Network USA Affinity Specialist and a Seniors Real Estate Specialist.  Tenley is a member of the North Metro Denver Realtor Association and is an active supporter of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Food Bank and Out of the Darkness Teen Suicide Prevention Program.

The Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Westminster is located at 2861 W. 120th Avenue, Suite 200, and can be reached at 303.235.0400.  Tenley can be reached directly at 720.201.3573 or via e-mail at  Additional information is available online at
