The Perfect Balance: Separate roles with the same goals

John Blue, Founder of Blue Family Development (BFD), had owned Denver apartment buildings with his siblings for many years. John built former career with a solid foundation: focus on values and relationships. Naturally, the next step was to combine the two by creating BFD with his two adult children, Brandon and Lindsey.

Lindsey is involved in the marketing and design projects of the business; helping update existing properties while handling some of the redevelopment projects. She uses her experience in interior design and merchandising talent to highlight the best aspects of the BFD real estate portfolio.

Brandon has a hands-on approach to the business. Currently he handles all property management and oversees BFD renovation projects. With an MBA in Real Estate and Construction Management, Brandon is always on the lookout for new properties to add to their portfolio.

– How to keep a healthy relationship between work and family
– Why taking a hands-on approach to managing real estate is essential
– “Our TEAM makes our buildings come alive
Blue Family Development firmly believes that great relationships are crucial to real estate success
