Our History

Koelbel and Company was founded as a residential brokerage firm in 1952 by 26-year-old Walter A. Koelbel. Even at that young age, Koelbel had the gift of patience and the ability to see possibilities. That’s why he began acquiring properties along the highway that would eventually become Denver’s I-25 corridor.

With the planning of Pinehurst Country Club and Pinehurst Estates, its flagship property, the company quickly gained prominence—and was able to sustain that success for decades. In 1990, Koelbel hit another milestone, creating The Preserve at Greenwood Village, a national award-winning community that includes public trails leading to a 45-acre nature preserve at its center.

Today, Koelbel and Company stands as the longest operating family-owned real estate development firm in the region with a slate of developments stretching from Vail and Winter Park to Louisville and Boulder, as well all across metropolitan Denver.
