Kimberly Lackey, a leading broker associate 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.  The list of metro Denver’s premier real estate agents is featured in the September 2011 issue of the magazine. 

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. 

Lackey earned her real estate license in 2005 and is a member of the Denver Board of Realtors, Colorado Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors.  Earlier this year, she earned the Real Estate Owned Specialist (REOS) certification from the National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB). 

The REOS certification is a designation given to real estate professionals who have completed course work related to the REO process.  The course work provides a thorough understanding of the complex procedures, guidelines, timeframes, and tasks that outsourcers, banks and lenders demand in today’s REO bank owned market. 

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.  Lackey may be reached directly at 720.297.4895 or via e-mail at
