CBRE announced today that Robert Bratley has joined its Denver office as a First Vice President with CBRE Capital Markets, focused on mid-market multifamily investment properties up to $20 million. Mr. Bratley was most recently a Director with ARA Newmark’s Private Client Services team in Denver, where he sold more than $150 million in multifamily assets across Central Denver, including the recent sale of the 30-unit Jux apartments in Capitol Hill, which set a record for a boutique multifamily community at $400,000 per unit. 

“Robert has had great success in Denver’s mid-market multifamily sector, securing record-breaking pricing for his clients. He understands how to help owners navigate the sale process, and we know CBRE clients will appreciate the value he brings,” said Pete Schippits, Senior Managing Director and Market Leader for CBRE’s Colorado region.

Mr. Bratley specializes in working with private local owners, many of whom have owned their properties for decades. Previously focused on Central Denver, his role at CBRE will expand his reach to the greater metro area.

“Apartment fundamentals across the Denver metro have been incredibly strong for several years at this point, which is bringing national and even international investor interest to this market. There are a lot of good opportunities within Denver’s mid-market multifamily sector in particular, as many of those properties have increased substantially in value in the past few years or have not yet traded hands this cycle,” said Mr. Bratley.

Mr. Bratley began his career in commercial real estate as an analyst, conducting market studies, appraisals and rent comparability studies for both market-rate and income-restricted multifamily properties in 40 markets across the United States. He received a bachelor’s degree in finance and real estate from Colorado State University.
