Element Properties

is one of the most respected real estate development companies in Boulder County and the Front Range region, with a focus on infill housing, affordable housing, and mixed-use places of exceptional value.

Grounded in a healthy respect for how the built environment can impact people, their quality of life and surrounding community, Element Properties is committed to a mindful development approach that balances financial and social entrepreneurship.


Bringing 20+ years each of diverse real estate investment and development experience, Scott Holton and Chris Jacobs launched Element Properties in 2010.

In naming their company, “element” represented the chemistry required to bring together the necessary components for their goal of mindful development; the needs of individual residents and the broader community, the property, the architect, the builder, consideration for the environment – all would be in harmony to create places that people could embrace and enjoy. They have succeeded, now widely known as a company of integrity, intelligence and creativity, with a collaborative approach to placemaking and investing.

Element Properties believes in People, Places and Potential.


We are passionate about what we do. We are committed to the well-being of the people in the community we create places for, and value the people we partner with to make that happen.


We don’t just develop properties. We create attractive, functional places for people to live, work, collaborate, and thrive for many years to come.


We see the possibilities. Whether we’re starting with an existing structure or an empty lot, we transform each property for results that are greater than the sum of its parts.
