BOULDER, Colo., April 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 8z Real Estate, a Colorado owned real estate brokerage, was named the #1 middle sized workplace in Colorado, in the Denver Post's annual Top Workplaces survey.

CEO and Founder Lane Hornung commented, "What makes 8z a great workplace? It's pretty simple; we have great people working together on a shared goal, fixing real estate."
