Century 21 and Re/Max of Golden are now operating together as Re/Max of Golden.

Two Golden real estate firms have merged

Century 21 Golden Realty and Re/Max of Golden are now working together as Re/Max of Golden.

The face of the real estate market in Golden has changed slightly. The two major companies in town have merged.

“Century 21 Golden Realty bought out Re/Max of Golden, and merged the two companies together. And now we’re operating as Re/Max of Golden,” said Garry Oddy, the managing broker at Re/Max of Golden.

Now, after both offices combined, Re/Max is operating with seven real estate sales people, and a property manager. All staff members stayed on through the merger, with the exception of former Re/Max owner Barney Bardarson who has decided to change careers.

Even though the two offices are now working together in one building, Oddy says very little has changed within the office and the Golden market.

“We were basically working together anyways, it’s not that different now that we’re officially together,” he said.

The housing market has had a rough couple of years, but Oddy is happy to say that it appears to be picking up in 2012.

“The market has improved quite a bit since last year. Last year was probably the low for several years,” he said. “But this year has started out a lot busier than last year already, so we’re pretty optimistic.”

Re/Max and Century 21 would like to thank their customers for their continued support during the recent change, and they will continue to offer the highest standards in customer service under the Re/Max banner.
