Side Expands Into Colorado

Side is officially live in Colorado. Industry leaders Bret Weinstein and Andrew Abrams have partnered with Side to launch Guide (formerly BSW Real Estate), a company dedicated to reshaping the real escape landscape through value and transparency.

Bret has been consistently ranked in the top 1% of Colorado agents for the last decade, facilitating over 100 sales per year on average. In 2019, he was named to the Denver Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 list, and he has made the cover of the Real Producers Denver magazine.

Andrew serves on the Government Affairs and Market Trends committees for the Denver Metro Association of REALTORS®, is a planning board member for the city of Denver, and has been on the Blueprint Denver and the Affordable Housing task forces.

Bret and Andrew co-founded BSW in 2019 with the goal of transforming the industry by investing in agent education, something they felt traditional brokerages did not emphasize. They quickly grew their team to over 70 high-performing agents and just under $500 million in annual transaction volume.

They knew that to truly raise the bar in real estate, they would need to keep growing. And the best way to do that would be to bring on a strategic partner.

“You are going to see us explode across this state because of our partnership with Side,” said Bret. “The Side platform offers all the tools agents need to be successful while supporting my vision for the company. I’m still in control, but I now have everything at my disposal to be competitive with anyone. Side wants to empower the independent broker.”

We are also excited to welcome Barbara Ecker, who will be leading our compliance as associate managing broker of Colorado. Congratulations Bret, Andrew, Barb, and the entire Guide team!
