About Us

Founded in 2014, ERES Companies is one of the fastest growing and unique real estate firms in the world.

Unlike other commercial real estate service providers, ERES provides a truly vertically integrated approach to meet a multitude of real estate needs seamlessly controlling projects from start to finish. Leveraging the comprehensive power of our service lines, we are enabled to research, analyze, and provide the most efficient, cost effective solution available for our client’s real estate investments. This translates to peace of mind in knowing that their needs, timeline, and budget are being considered at every phase of their project.

Our collective commitment to excellence, hard work, and creativity has resulted in a rapid firm expansion that has led ERES to complete thousands of successful projects both domestically and internationally, represent over five million square feet of commercial space and more than $1 billion in real estate value, and manage over 6,000 multifamily and industrial units.

Our sophistication and expertise, combined with our small company values and client-centered approach, have provided us opportunities to partner with best-in-class, global corporate clients, including several Fortune 500 companies, in solving some of their largest and most challenging real estate issues.

ERES is currently comprised of over 150 dedicated professionals working tirelessly to provide the finest all-inclusive real estate services in key secondary and tertiary markets across the globe. Always opportunistic about expanding operations, we have twelve domestic and international office locations in Denver, CO (headquarters), Williston, ND, Bozeman, MT, Grand Junction, CO, Fort Worth, TX, Houston, TX, Midland, TX, New York, NY, Washington DC, Los Angeles, CA, Guyana, Georgetown and Neuquén, Argentina.

Our History

Energy Real Estate Solutions, known as “ERES”, was launched in 2014 by individuals with extensive real estate, investment, energy and professional services experience to address a dire need witnessed within the real estate industry – helping companies and investors better understand the intricacies of challenging secondary and tertiary commercial markets.

The evolution and growth of ERES from a brokerage-focused firm to a full-service real estate company has always been fueled by client demand and opportunity. The formula is a simple one: Listen to your clients and partners and do not be afraid to get creative and “say yes” to the seemingly impossible request.

Our dynamic and organic expansion has led ERES into exciting new lines of service and markets allowing the company to better foster long-term growth and diversification. In September 2020, this natural progression resulted in a slight brand change to ERES Companies, the umbrella under which all our diversified services are housed. Still known simply as ERES, we are excited for what the future holds and look forward to continuing to provide our expertise, industry vision and signature best-in-class real estate services.
