About Koelbel

1952 – A legacy begins
Twenty-six-year-old Walter A. Koelbel founded Koelbel and Company as a residential
brokerage firm in 1952, just as America’s love affair with the automobile began bursting into
full bloom. Coinciding with a massive expansion of highways across the nation, a new era was
born when more and more people would make their escapes beyond city limits.

About KoelbelBecause young Koelbel had both the gift of vision and patience, he began acquiring properties – basically undeveloped expanses of farmlands and former ranch properties – south of downtown Denver along a highway that would eventually become the city’s I-25 corridor. It wasn’t long until Walt had nurtured his business into a full-service land development company. And thus was born a rich history of real estate excellence.

Within a few years, Koelbel and Company began planning Pinehurst Country Club and Pinehurst Estates, its flagship property, several miles southwest of the city. Pinehurst laid the groundwork for Koelbel’s enduring philosophy of respecting the land by building communities with respect for distinguishing natural features.

About KoelbelIn 1990, bucking a strong national trend favoring walled-in residential neighborhoods, the company created The Preserve at Greenwood Village, a national award-winning community that includes public trails leading to a 60-acre nature preserve at its center. Now in its seventh decade, Koelbel and Company is 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 as all across metropolitan Denver.

Under the leadership of Walter A. “Buz” Koelbel, Jr., since 1985, the company continues to place its indelible mark on the Colorado landscape, blending ageless values with pacesetting design.

Our Philosophy
Under all, lies the land.

Buz Koelbel’s father, Walt Koelbel, Sr., and maternal grandfather, Denver industrialist Carl Norgren, understood the value of Colorado’s land resources. Norgren built a ranch in the mountains west of Denver (just west of Rendezvous) that became a favored retreat of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, initiating a tradition of imaginative mountain resort projects that are a continuing passion of Koelbel and Company.For the good of family and more, both men passed along their love of the land to their heirs.

“We have to protect the land and use it wisely,” Walt Sr. told members of the Urban Land Institute in an address late in his life. “What we do literally affects everybody in how they live, work, shop, study, worship, recreate and travel.”

The collective of the Koelbel family and Koelbel and Company employees are committed to upholding our founder’s philosophy in everything we do.
