Monty Force, Executive Director - Lowry Redevelopment Authority
"He has proven in our business relationship to be a person of high character and intelligence and an employee with very thoughtful and collaborative problem solving skills. John has been in the real estate development business his entire career, but his breadth of knowledge is not limited to that arena as he never failed to amaze me with his understanding of issues both current and historical and totally unrelated to land development. He is never afraid to take on a difficult issue and work diligently to come to a solution. He has excellent verbal and written communication skills, and he is a good guy to be around, always offering something to laugh about while still entangled in the most difficult situations."
Robert Duncanson, PE - City and County of Denver, Director, Public Works, Right of Way Services

"I am an architect who met John as part of Lowry’s redevelopment into a thriving mixed-use community. I value his experience and insight in all aspects of development, he is a strategic and creative thinker with a holistic understanding of how communities function, from their infrastructure to how they interact with local and regional governments to how they serve and represent their citizenry."
Tom Berger - Lowry Redevelopment Authority
"John is uniquely qualified.............. His career is immersed in development, homebuilding, affordable housing, homeowner associations, real estate and other endeavors, all of which relate to community building. Throughout his adult life John has demonstrated a desire to serve his local community with his volunteer involvement in the many organizations he has been involved with. Most importantly, John is a reasoned thinker who will invest the time to understand an issue and then participate in a rationale solution. John is well-informed, intelligent, and very articulate. He grasps the complexities and sensitivities that often arise with issues routinely encountered by an HOA Board like the HRCA. He is always professional and has the moral courage to be appropriately forthright in expressing his opinions and positions. John is of sound character and will always have the best interests of the entire community in mind."
Alan Sorrel - City and County of Denver, Manager, Site Engineering, Development Services
" I worked several years with John when he represented the Lowry Redevelopment Authority during some of some of Lowry's major development projects. My professional interactions with John led me to conclude that he is very knowledgeable about all aspects associated with private development. John routinely managed projects which demanded attention to multiple issues and disciplines (e. g. Site Site Planning Process, Site Engineering Issues, Surveying issues, Surety problems, site engineering issues, serving issues, surety problems, building permit issues etc.). During this time, I found John to be professional, responsive, and able to multi-task, work with cross-functional teams and solve complex/critical problems"
Diana Askew - Executive Director, Professional Land Surveyors of Colorado
“I worked with John while employed as a Land Surveyor at the City and County of Denver in charge of reviewing redevelopment projects at the Lowry Air Force, and then worked with John as an Assistant Survey Manager working for URS Corporation. The Lowry Redevelopment project was extremely complex and John was always on top of every detail. His responsibilities would have overwhelmed less experienced and capable project managers. He developed dependable relationships with multiple stakeholders, often walking projects through processes to ensure they were completed in a timely manner. He had a knack for finding efficient solutions for complex problems as well. John was a joy to work with on every level as well; he was perpetually helpful and proactive."
Grace Suzuki - Semi Custom Home Client - 1997
"I was looking for a well-designed home in a great neighborhood. What I found was the perfect solution and the Millennium Homes team was more than accommodating to make some minor changes to the home after construction already had begun. The design details of my home were superior to others in the neighborhood and John created this home on his drafting board in his office with a pencil and a T-square - Simply Amazing!"
Alan Smith - Custom Home Client - 2003
"Millennium Homes, Ltd provided exactly what I was looking for - Thoughtful Design, Excellent Customer Service, and an approach to affordable custom home building not found in other custom home builders. John put our budget and needs first, and we were able to afford more than we thought when the first designs were taken to budget."
Kip Backlund - URS Corporation
“Working with John Ewing on the Lowry Redevelopment project was a wonderful experience. John is always very professional, very approachable, and willing to help when called upon.
