Apartment Complex

  1. Copper Stone

A stroll through a pleasant courtyard takes residents to their studio, one- or two-bedroom apartment home at Copper Stone.

Though the central location affords easy access to multiple shopping and entertainment options — The Citadel mall and Citadel Crossing, as well as Memorial Park, are short drives away — the treed and landscaped property feels like a retreat from the bustle of the city.

Kitchens are outfitted with Energy Star-certified appliances, patios or balconies and walk-in closets. Many of the floor plan options offer views of Pikes Peak. A pet-friendly community, Copper Stone also boasts a pet play area, resident lounge and pool.

Resident reviews overwhelmingly cite friendly and responsive on-site management as one of the complex’s greatest assets. | 719-264-1800

Residential Real Estate Brokerage

  1. Keller Williams Partners Realty

Ashley Coffey has seen Keller Williams Partners Realty transform from a small brokerage agency into a company of more than 250 agents in just a few years, and the company’s culture is the reason for that, she said.

“We’ll have transfer agents who say, ‘We heard about the culture you have and we really want to be a part of that,” said Coffey, head of agent services.

That culture is one of inclusivity and appreciation — for the company’s agents just as much as its clients, she said.

“We really believe when we are taking care of our agents, they will take better care of their clients,” Coffey said. “So by modeling that for our agents and showing that we appreciate them and their families, they’re more likely to do the same for their clients.” | 719-955-1999
