Lucero Development Services is led by John Lucero who served as the Deputy Director of Denver’s Office Economic Development under three mayors, having led the City through recovery during the most recent economic recession. He has several hotel and residential mixed-use developments under his belt coupled with over 25 years of real estate brokerage. Buoyed by this experience, we deliver through our passion for solving the most complex challenges in community development.

Real Estate is a team sport. Through our experience and broad relationships, we build the right team for any sized project. Our soup-to-nuts approach enables Lucero Development Services to guide you through the most intricate and challenging real estate hurdles.
We have a proven track record in sourcing and acquiring off-market opportunities and working shoulder to shoulder with our clients at every step from identifying the right property, negotiating the perfect deal, orchestrating finance strategies, real estate closing, project design, public engagement and walking your plans over the counter through expedited permitting and completion.
. Lucero’s successes in leading within the public sector, in team delivery of exceptional projects in the private sector and in understanding how to interlace those relationships and experiences are key in delivery for our clients and for the community.
Lucero recently launched iMPAX Real Estate Group as our brokerage arm that brings over 80 years of combined commercial and development real estate experience. Our diverse and broad-based relationships offer market trends, economic insights and our team offers listed and off-market opportunities.
Understanding government and community processes and having the relationships to navigate them can be a long and arduous process. Lucero Development Services prides itself on being able to facilitate this balance for its clients while ensuring the development’s positive impact within the community.
I have found John's insight helpful when evaluating a property for development or acquisition. He has on more than once occassion prevented me from entering into a business venture which may have had issues. He has been a startegic partner of mine on several other transactions and I have referred business associates to him. John's involvement in many aspects of political, governmental, and non-profit agencies has also brought a unique perspective to the table.
John has dutifully served the Office of Economic Development at Denver, helping improve the health and vitality of the city in many ways. Among his accomplishments, he led a series of improvements to the city's small business lending portfolio, resulting in the lowering of the city's default/delinquency rate from nearly 20% to 3%.
I have had the pleasure of working hand-in-hand with John Lucero coalescing, envisioning, and master planning development potential for a variety of projects within the urban landscape of Denver and along the Front Range of Colorado. The priorities inherent within each concept investigated with John leading the team have always been, first and foremost, the benefit of the community, sustainability and openness.
