Kyle Malnati likes to be on the move, in action. The Denver-based apartment broker favors hands-on learning, living his religious faith every day, not just giving to nonprofits, but creating his own.

Malnati even named his company Calibrate because the word means “to adjust a tool based on a set standard — to assess and adapt.“
“Calibrate is a verb, and action is what I’m about,” Malnati said. “And calibrate rhymes with real estate.”

The broker spent his younger years in the Washington, D.C.-Baltimore area, moving to Colorado in the 1990s with his financial services professional dad, homemaker/nurse mom and siblings. After getting a finance degree at the University of Wyoming, Malnati went into commercial real estate at area companies, including Pinnacle Real Estate Advisors LLC and Madison & Company Properties Ltd. He and partner Greg Johnson launched Calibrate, which specializes in selling apartment properties, in 2016.

Malnati also has a podcast, “The Kyle Malnati Show,” and is writing a book about best practices for real estate professionals, which he hopes will publish late this year.

Away from work, he’s married to his high school sweetheart, Courtney, and they have a family. He’s involved in his church and with nonprofits including Youth Roots and A Precious Child. After his brother, Billy, died suddenly in 2011, Malnati turned that negative into a positive by forming Billy Malnati Charitable Giving.

In that effort, Malnati acted on a family philosophy: Leave the world a better place than you found it.
