Acclaimed European Real Estate Agency Fantastic Frank is entering the U.S. Market

Share Article

The brand’s first American office launched in Colorado after partnering with Denver-based Slate Real Estate Advisors.

The U.S has become one of the most design-conscious countries in the world. For over a century Americans have been inspired by European design, engineering, and fabrication. We have developed a hunger for new and fresh ideas, and we often find them in Europe. Why should real estate be any different?

From the Most Exciting Destinations in Europe to Denver and Boulder, Colorado.

Founded in 2010 in Stockholm, Fantastic Frank has since expanded throughout Europe, establishing offices in exciting cities across Germany, Spain, Italy, Denmark and Portugal. And now, the United States.

Driven by their motto ”Inspire To Buy”, Fantastic Frank stands out for its passion for aesthetics, carefully curated properties and flawless service.

Fantastic Frank’s perspective on selling properties and appealing to the ideal buyer goes beyond conventional measures. Their game-changing approach to digital marketing, as well as professional styling, photography, and more, paves the way for its success. It is all about accentuating a property’s best features and finding that one person that falls in love with it.

From architectural and fashion photographers, to art directors and interior stylists, Fantastic Frank works with leading design industry professionals to achieve the kind of enchanting visual storytelling that buyers expect when looking for the property of their dreams and that catch the eye of design magazine editors, with properties featured in leading international design publications.

This unique combination of traditional brokerage services and innovative digital marketing reaches over 1.5 million people globally per month and has positioned Fantastic Frank as one of the most loved real estate agencies in Europe, selling thousands of properties for an average transaction of 1.2 million USD.

In mid-2022, having expanded to key European markets, Fantastic Frank founders Sven Wallen and Tomas Backman made the ambitious decision to embark on their next journey, the United States. True to its mission of selecting design-driven markets, Colorado was targeted for its beautiful natural landscape, rapid growth and development, and appreciation for quality architecture and design.

In Co-Founder Sven Wallen’s mind, Colorado was always “bubbling right under the surface.” He added “There has always been a certain fascination for Fantastic Frank in the US interiors and design community. However, when targeting cities that are intrigued by architecture and design, Colorado just fits as our first American franchise. With its world-class destinations and highly-educated population, this launch is sure to be a success.”

As recognized leaders in this space, SLATE Real Estate Advisors was the “number one choice” to be the very first Fantastic Frank office in the United States of America.

For fellow Fantastic Frank Co-Founder Tomas Backman, it was the well established team led by Stan Kniss and Jorgen Jensen that sold the deal. “When we decided to open in the US we had to become picky on a whole new level! We had to find a team that were not only highly experienced real estate agents, but super successful in running their own company. In Stan and Jorgen we found our next of kin in the US, we trust them wholeheartedly to take care of the Fantastic Frank brand in Colorado. With Stan and Jorgen we get professional leadership and a track record of growing a business. The cherry on top was that they also share our deepest core values for sales and aesthetics.

Fantastic Frank’s First U.S Office Launches in Colorado!

Publicly launched late-October, the newly announced Fantastic Frank Colorado will be led by Stan Kniss and Jorgen Jensen, Co-Founders of reputable boutique real estate agency, SLATE Real Estate Advisors. Their vision is to combine decades of experience selling some of Colorado’s most dynamic real estate, a crystal-clear understanding of consumer behavior, and marry it with the most compelling, innovative approach to selling real estate in Europe, and to become the very best boutique brokerage in Denver, Boulder and beyond. Adopting the Fantastic Frank model allows them to offer their clients a level of service that’s radically different from what currently exists in the marketplace. Every person on their team is the best at what they do - from brokers, photographers, designers to marketers. This means that each part of the sale has a person behind it who is passionate about that particular part. Their common
goal is to make the world's best sales every time.

To Co-Founder Jorgen Jensen it is inevitable for Americans to see the appeal of a European brokerage experience. “We believe the United States is becoming one of the most design-conscious countries in the world. For over a century Americans have been inspired by European design, engineering, and fabrication. You see it in the cars we drive, the clothes we wear and just about every other consumer product imaginable. We have developed a hunger for new and fresh ideas, and we often find them in Europe. Why should real estate be any different?”

As a nearly three decade member of Colorado’s real estate community, fellow Founder Stan Kniss is equally thrilled about elevating their clients’ experience buying and selling property as Fantastic Frank Colorado. “We are deeply honored to be the first Fantastic Frank outpost in America, and profoundly excited to bring a fresh, new and sophisticated approach to an otherwise predictable industry. We have been taking note of Fantastic Frank for many years now. Since 2016, Jorgen and I have always seen their perspective as a great inspiration for us. Their sophisticated eye for design and presentation will undoubtedly offer a platform for great success going forward.”
