Nate is a native of New Mexico, but made the move to Denver from Washington, DC to go back to graduate school. After graduating with a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning, Nate worked in commercial land development with a local engineering firm, consulting for national retail clients, where he led their entitlement and due diligent efforts throughout the Mountain West.
Nate understands that you have many options when it comes time to choose a Realtor and appreciates the opportunity to work with you in order to achieve your real estate goals. His mission is to treat every client as if they were his only client. Nate will act as your guide throughout the home buying and/or selling process and always keep you informed, treat you with respect and negotiate fiercely, but fairly, on your behalf.
Nate is a firm believer in real estate as a personal investment vehicle. In addition to representing both buyers and sellers as a real estate broker, Nate has also renovated, managed and sold multifamily buildings in Central Denver as part of an investment syndication he formed with some friends from grad school.
When he's not showing clients around the city he loves, Nate spends his time telemark skiing, mountain biking and traveling. Ask him about his motorcycle trip through Mexico, biking through Argentina wine country or living in South Africa!
What Clients Are Saying About Nate…
"My wife and I have bought and sold property from five different brokers and Nate Abbott far exceeds all the others in every category. We were under a one month time constraint. Nate found us the right property in the right area within a week of our contacting him. He took us through the whole process of dealing with a seller who was somewhat obstinate and I think ended up pleasing both of us. He was an absolute black belt in negotiating the sale. But the thing that I liked about Nate most of all was his honesty and directness. We have complete confidence in Nate Abbott's abilities as a broker and will definitely use him again if the occasion arises."
-Jeff & Connie, Sunnyside
"I cannot overstate how impressed I was with Nate during the recent sale of my Denver home. I now live in California, and needed to sell my place from long distance. Nate did everything- from arranging bids with contractors to make repairs in the house, to following and ensuring the workers did a good job, and all the while keeping my tenants happy. Nate was great at explaining all of the options I had while considering my different offers, and I never felt like he was pressuring me in a particular direction. I always felt that my best interest was his primary concern. If you want to have a great experience either selling or buying a house...hire Nate! My only regret is that I can't hire him to help me find a new house in California..."
"Nate has a lot of useful knowledge about Denver (as well as the greater Denver area), combined with an interest in urban development. It is clear that he has an appreciation for real estate and communities, as well as for the offer/negotiation process of purchasing a home. I would recommend Nate with no reservations to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in the Denver area. He is trustworthy, reliable, timely, knowledgeable and FUN to work with."
-Greg & Bekah, Virginia Village, Denver

-Rachel & Dan, Washington Park
"Nate was incredibly helpful and professional throughout our entire home buying process, and he was also very knowledgeable about Denver neighborhoods and the surrounding areas. Even though his office is in the Highlands, he had no problem meeting us down south in the cities we were interested in (Highlands Ranch, Littleton, South Aurora). Once we found our home, he took the time to thoroughly explain each step in the process, and made sure we were comfortable with every decision we made. We would 100% recommend Nate as a realtor for anyone looking to have a professional and personalized home buying experience."
-Heather & Jake, Highlands Ranch

"We recently sold our home with Nate Abbott at Live Urban and couldn't have been more pleased with the entire process. We were on a tight timeline because we were leaving the state - We listed and had our home sold in ten weeks. Nate helped us get our home ready for sale quickly and was very knowledgeable with the process - he helped us determine the optimal list price quickly. We'll definitely work with Nate and Live Urban again when we're back in Denver and would highly recommend Nate for anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
-Aggie & Jeff, Potter Highlands

Nate represented us in both transactions and we couldn't be more pleased with the results. From our initial meeting with Nate to the final signatures, we were impressed with Nate's professionalism, knowledge and quick response to our seemingly endless questions and concerns. We would highly recommend Nate to anyone looking to buy or sell in Denver!"
-Heather & Kevin, Uptown & Centennial
"Working with Nate was a great experience overall. His knowledge about the local Denver market was superb, and he showed us exactly what we asked for. He was always responsive, never pushy, and a true resource for us. Home buying can be stressful, but Nate's laid back demeanor and welcoming personality were a true comfort throughout the entire process."
-Megan & Colin, Sunnyside
"Nate Abbott at Live Urban Real Estate was great to work with! His professionalism, caring and know-how was a big help in the purchase of our new home. He was great at knowing how to negotiate with the selling agent, worked with us on all the inspection details, closing was a breeze and over all made us feel very confident on our purchase. Nate is a great guy and we are so happy he was our Realtor."
-Sara & Mark, Highlands Square
"Nate Abbott at Live Urban did a fantastic job in helping my wife and I find the perfect home in Denver. He listened to our wish list of what we wanted in a new house, and Nate Abbott found several options for us to consider. I'd recommend Nate Abbott and Live Urban to other prospective home buyers in the Denver area."
-Brice & Leah, LoHi
"My house sale process with Live Urban Real Estate and agent Nate Abbott was a very smooth process. I was originally undecided on whether to sell or rent out my house and Nate had some very sound suggestions on the advantages to both situations. Ultimately I made the decision to sell, and Nate's knowledge of the neighborhood and comparative analysis on multiple occasions kept me up to date on the current state of market in my area. His suggestions on minor house updates and staging were very helpful in gathering interest and ultimately bringing in an offer in a tough market. Nate offered good, reasonable advice for pricing the house and working with the buyer during price negotiations. I never felt pushed into a situation during the process, but rather felt I had all the information I needed to make a sound decision. Nate's patience and ability to break down the pieces of the house sale process into understandable pieces were great. This was definitely the most comfortable and easy process that I have been through and I would highly recommend Nate as a Realtor. I look forward to working with Nate again for purchasing my next home."
- Mike & Maia, University Hills, Denver
"Working with Live Urban Real Estate was great! From the beginning Nate Abbott was very professional in presenting himself to me and showing me what Live Urban would have to offer. I was a first time home buyer so I was very new to the whole process and he was very good in helping me through it. I was very impressed with how knowledgeable Nate was in regards to everything from the home buying process, lending, home improvements, and just finding a house that was right for me. He had answers to almost all my questions, and any questions he didn't know the answer to, he was very diligent in finding an answer for me. He represented me well when dealing with the lender as well as the selling party. With his help and advice I was able to find my first home and move into it in a very short period of time! I would recommend Nate as well as Live Urban Real Estate to ANYONE and I look forward to doing business with them in the future!"
"Nate's patience and attention to his client's needs are two of his greatest strengths. As first time home buyers we needed that extra attention and Nate was with us every step of the way. We looked at several properties and ended up deciding to build our own home. Nate's patience was unsurpassed and well appreciated in our search and again reaffirmed when we decided to go a different route. In addition, his commitment to proper representation and extensive knowledge of the buying process proved him an invaluable asset to the industry. We would recommend Nate to any first time home buyer as well as the more seasoned patron."
- Salimah & Patrick, Denver
"Nate walked me through the steps of purchasing my first home. He was extremely patient and took the time to explain the process to me. I would recommend him as a Realtor for any first time home buyer."
- Gavin, Boulder
"Nate's approach to real estate is twofold -he has extensive knowledge of the Denver areas and owns several properties himself. We were continually impressed with his expertise in all areas of the real estate process, his work ethic, and his professionalism. I don't think there was ever a time I placed a call that wasn't immediately returned. In the end, Nate sold our home for asking price and was able to negotiate $30,000 off the home we eventually purchased. I wouldn't hesitate to refer him to everyone we know!"
- Justin & Amber, Denver
Q&A With Nate
Where do you LIVE?
After living in the Whittier, Highland and Cory-Merrill neighborhoods we settled into the Stapleton community - and love it! This "alt-burb" has a relaxing atmosphere with a sense of community that we feel while roaming the farmers market, catching a movie on The Green, barbequing at the community pools or cruising on bikes to the Rec Center.
Why Real Estate... Aren't There Enough Agents On The Planet Already?
Working as a Realtor allows me to combine my interest in the built environment and real estate investing in order to help people from all walks of life make informed decisions on a major financial purchase.
What Music Is Currently In Your iPod?
I love reggae, but listen to a rotating playlist consisting of everything from Dispatch and the John Butler Trio to Beck and Thievery Corporation
What Cause Gets Your Time And Money?
For the past few years I have been raising money for MS awareness through a mountain bike ride along the Colorado Trail with the CT Jamboree. The CTJ was co-founded by a good friend of mine and helps raise money while riding some of the sweetest high-alpine single track. I also donate money to Seeing is Believing, which raises money to help fight preventable blindness around the world.
Give It Up. What Local Restaurant Is Your Best Kept Secret?
Denver has a plethora of great eateries, but I'm a sucker for the blue corn chicken enchiladas smothered in green chili at Little Anitas. Soy de Burque!
