Our DREAM Process

The Smart Way to Find Apartments in Denver

At Smart City Denver, we use a revolutionary 5-step process to connect you with the apartment you’re going to love. We refer to this as our DREAM process because… acronyms! Our point being, Smart City is here to help.


It all starts when we partner you with one of our licensed, expert real estate agents, who will take the time to ask all the right questions and listen to your answers to uncover exactly what you want and need in a home.

“My agent listened to all of my needs and wants but somehow still knew the things I didn’t even know to ask about. They dig deep and know what I don’t know.”

Real Market Knowledge

From that information, we use our own real market research, insights, and expertise to build you a customized list of apartments that check all of your boxes. Rather than simply auto-generate a list of apartments for rent in Denver, we’ll provide you with a very short, very focused list of properties that reflect what you’re looking for.

“My agent found an awesome complex that had just been built within a few minutes of my job. I had no idea it even existed!”

Explore Options

Your agent will ask for your feedback on the list. This is your chance to be totally candid. Brutal, even. Don’t hold back. By the time we’re done, this list should have nothing but winners on it. You let your agent know which properties you’re most excited about, and we move on to…

“My agent really keyed into the features I wanted in a new apartment. I couldn’t tell you how many times I changed my priorities, but she rolled with it and made sure I got what I wanted while staying in my budget!”

Active Touring

Seeing is believing, and this is your chance to personally check out your favorite apartments on the list. Your agent will work with the properties to schedule apartment viewings (or video tours) at your convenience.

“My agent listened to all of my needs and wants but somehow still knew the things I didn’t even know to ask about. They dig deep and know what I know I don’t know.”


Once you pick a favorite unit, we’ll stick with you through the application process to make sure everything goes smoothly. And then, once you’re approved… it’s moving time! Afraid you’re on your own for the schlepping and heavy lifting, but we can definitely help you get your utilities turned on or moved over.

“I just moved into my apartment and despite it being a month since we last spoke, my agent still reached out to check on how I was doing on move-in day!”

Exclusive Smart City Connect services

Once our apartment locators have found you the perfect apartment, our Connect team takes care of the rest! From hooking you up with the best utility rate and renter insurance policies to finding a trusted moving service*, we’ll do the heavy lifting when it comes to all things moving & renting – so you don’t have to.

“Having the Connect Team at Smart City followup with me after I signed my lease was a literal dream! I can’t say enough about this team and how they went above and beyond to help my move go smoothly!”
