"Went through Mark and the process both times was amazing, fast, efficient, and easy. If we were ever in Colorado again, we'd use him again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Mark!" - Tiffany A.


My primary goal is to help clients from start to finish when buying/selling Northern CO properties. I consider real estate to be an individual's most important investment and I am here to make the process as simple and easy as possible. Above all, I provide pure INSIGHT to clients' questions and concerns to encourage the best financial, lifestyle and personal decision for their specific needs. Offering the highest level of professional service, I will be there for you every step of the way.

I represent buyers and sellers in Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Windsor and surrounding areas. My market specialty is Windsor, including the Windsor Old Town, Windsor West/ Mountain View, River West, Bison Ridge and Westwood/Riverbend neighborhoods.

As a Managing Broker and a top producing agent, I am a leading real estate professional in Northern Colorado. Licensed since 2005, I worked as an award winning agent with RE/MAX before becoming the Broker/Owner of Invest Realty. In 2010, I joined forces with 8z Real Estate and I am currently the Managing Broker of the 8z office in Windsor, CO.

I’m an enthusiastic member of the 8z family, which I love for the lofty business and ethical standards, professional client care team, and state of the art technology innovations. 8z boasts an always-available behind the scenes support team, as well as the most highly-trafficked Colorado real estate web site, COhomefinder.com. I believe, as does 8z, that taking care of clients with their needs always first is the most successful and enjoyable way to run a business. I received a BA in business marketing from UNC and I am bilingual, with Spanish as my second language.

I have been featured on Inside Real Estate News with John Rebchook, as well as a contributing guest panelist for various Real Estate gatherings.

I’m a firm believer in the value of real estate and I am an experienced investor. I enjoy guiding my clients through the process of buying personal residences as well as helping them build their real estate portfolios.

I’m a lifelong resident of Northern Colorado (with a 2 year stint in Honduras). My family and I love the active, artistic and friendly communities in the area. With the good schools, outdoor adventures, and clean safe neighborhoods, my wife and I have found it to be the perfect place to raise our 5 active little boys. We enjoy traveling, rock climbing and camping, as well as the ever popular family movie or game night.

Mark Despain is top notch when it comes to making deals happen in Northern, CO. I have worked with Mark on a variety of projects and each has been done professionally with focus on bettering our bottom line.

We have used him to both but and sell property. He gave great advice but wasn't pushy and gave us complete power in decision making (as it should be). He is the only realtor we will be using in the future.

Mark Rocks! We recently sold our first home and Mark was wonderful. He is very knowledgeable, takes time to explain the process/answer questions, and is very successful- our home sold quickly at a price well above our hopes. We would highly recommend Mark!

I have known Mark for many years and worked with him in real estate for the last several. I would trust nobody else's judgment on price, location, neighborhood, and overall real estate knowledge more than Mark's. He will tell you the facts and make sure get what you want. I look forward to our next transaction!
