Joshua Hunt, the founder of the flat-fee Denver-based brokerage Trelora, has announced he is resigning from his role as CEO of the company, effective yesterday. Hunt says he plans to remain involved in a guiding role with the company he founded seven years ago.

“I have always known that, at some point, I may not be the best person to run the company, and the time has come to find a leader who can maximize and unlock Trelora’s true potential,” Hunt said in a statement.

Trelora initially launched in Denver and in February of this year expanded to Seattle. The brokerage offers a flat-fee for sellers – $500 up front to use the brokerage, then another $2,500 when the sale closes in Denver and $4,000 altogether in Seattle – and recently drew the ire of many in the industry by encouraging buyers to ditch agents and work directly with the company.

“With our Seattle office off to a great start, and Denver office growing fast, we’ve saved consumers almost $50 million in commissions, and we have a fantastic leadership team,” Hunt said. “So, I know the timing is right.”
