AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing is a network of locally owned and operated real estate property management brokerages offering fully furnished and serviced residential properties.
In 1999, Kimberly and Eric Smith started AvenueWest Corporate Housing, Inc., today a multi-million dollar company that provides furnished corporate housing and property management services to upscale business travelers. AvenueWest was ranked #94 on Inc. Magazine’s top 5,000 real estate companies nationwide listing and recognized for 3 years in a row by Inc. Magazine’s list of “5000 Fastest Growing Private US Companies;” was named the “Fastest Growing Woman Owned Business in Colorado” by Colorado Biz magazine; Awarded the CHPA 2010 Company of the Year award, the 2003 Emerging Business of the Year award from the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, and still reigns as the largest corporate housing property management company in Colorado.
Inspired to help people find corporate housing and real estate solutions on a national basis, Kimberly and Eric came up with a business idea to create a national Web directory dedicated to connecting owners and managers of fully furnished rental properties with corporate renters. In 2006, the couple launched CorporateHousingbyOwner.com (CHBO), the first-of-its-kind online portal that connects private individuals offering fully furnished rentals with corporate housing seekers. CHBO has received national acclaim and credibility after being featured in USA Today, The New York Times, US News & World Report and on The Today Show on NBC and CNBC.
Kimberly continues to lead in the corporate housing industry and recently served as the elected President of the Board of Directors for the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA) , the primary trade organization for the multi-billion corporate housing industry.

Kimberly has been featured in numerous publications such as Reuters.com and the 2013 July/August addition of PREI Magazine as an expert on the corporate housing industry, property management, and real estate.
