Bret Freedman

"I highly, highly recommend Bret Freedman and have already passed along his name to several friends. Thanks Bret. I love my new home!" - Mary W.

If you love the mountains then you will LOVE Estes Park! Living, playing and working here allows me to know this area like the back of my hand. I have serviced this industry for over 12 years and am a Broker/Owner at 8z Real Estate. By establishing my own company, I can now ensure personalized service and offer a buyer/seller agency to protect my clients. My business philosophy is one of honesty and integrity. Paired with, I give you the ability to meet your real estate needs.

As one of the most knowledgeable brokers in the area, I service both buyers and sellers throughout Estes Park, Allenspark, Lyons and some portions of Drake.

I was born in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. And after a move down south, my wife, Jan, and I lived in North Palm Beach, Florida for almost two decades.

After 18 years of marriage, we decided to make the cross-country trek to Estes Park, CO. We had our son, Brock, and discovered there is simply no better place to raise a child.

Because Estes Park is a very small mountain community, it has been a fantastic lifestyle change for us. Currently, we happily reside in Prospect Estates in Estes Park. Our only regret is that we did not relocate to this vibrant area years ago.

My family loves the Rocky Mountain National Park. We enjoy the breathtaking mountain views, accented with the wildlife that casually walks the streets of our town.

In my free time, I cruise the winding mountain roads on my motorcycle. It is incredibly relaxing.

Having a beneficial presence in my local neighborhood is very important to me. I have found it rewarding to help out when needed and volunteer my time as a Estes Park Police Auxiliary. I have also been elected to the Board of Directors for the Cultural Arts Council of Estes Park and I have relished in watching the art community grow in leaps and bounds.

I entered the real estate industry as a REALTOR in Palm Beach, Florida over ten years ago. This has been a worthwhile and gratifying profession! Now with 8z Real Estate, I love being a Broker in the Gateway to the Rocky Mountain National Park.

My clients beam with enthusiasm when moving to the most peaceful place on Earth!

As a very motivated professional, I strive for the utmost buyer and seller satisfaction. I always advocate for the best interests of my clients. And my sales background makes me a very strong negotiator.


We have been working with Bret Freedman since before we even moved to Colorado. Bret was straightforward, honest, knowledgeable and listened to what we wanted. Beyond helping us find our new mountain home, Bret helped us get in contact with the local utilities, the school (finding us the best teachers), home inspectors, a great builder that is helping us make our new home ours, and so much more. Bret has all of the contacts, know-how, and inside tracks that got us the best deal on just about anything we asked about.

Bret was great to work with and made our finding just the right house in Estes Park an enjoyable experience. Bret got to know us and our tastes and help to narrow down the choices to homes that fit our taste, lifestyle and budget. We hadn't moved in over 20 years, and Bret helped us with each step all along the way. We'd happily recommend Bret Freedman for anyone looking for broker in Estes Park.

Dan and Krisit

We have worked with Bret over the years buying 2 homes in Estes Park, selling one and working with him to sell our house in Longmont. He has done a great job in all circumstances. We have appreciated that he has always been honest with us and been there to support us if there were problems. He made many recommendations of professionals that we could work with for inspections, mortgage assistance, construction help. We will work with Bret over and over again and consider him a good friend.

Bret Freedman, is the most awesome broker to work with. He has called us every step of the way and lead us through all the peaks and valleys with no reservations. He is genuinely working for you. You will never have anyone work his tail off more for his clients than Bret. I believe it was divine intervention that landed us on his doorstep two days before we were to leave the state of Colorado. He Is the BEST!
