The life you love.

elcome to the spring issue of our signature publication, LIV Magazine. In many ways, a new season is upon us delivering an opportunity to reconnect to the outside world. We are soaking in all that spring has to offer, including fresh design trends, new chances for adventure, and imaginative ways to enjoy Colorado living. This issue focuses on bright colors and our state’s quintessential calling card, the great outdoors. Bringing nature indoors with the use of foliage and engaging pops of green is a major theme this year, as well as creating optimal outdoor living experiences in every backyard and patio space. Take a moment to read more about these trends and others in the article “LIV in Style,” and feast your eyes on our collection of “Pinterest-Worthy Patios.”

While we all love to look at the stunning imagery, the lead story in today’s market is all about the numbers. Record-breaking sales are happening every day, fueled by a post-pandemic quest for the perfect home, low interest rates, and an incredible influx of buyers coming to our great state. This, combined with an unprecedented lack of inventory, has created a golden opportunity for well-represented sellers across the Front Range and in our resort communities. Get the full scoop in “Colorado’s Real Estate Rush,” starting on page 8.

With the inventory moving so quickly, our incredible listings are not available for long. Therefore, within this issue, we are featuring amazing homes across the Front Range that are available, as well as presenting many that have recently been put under contract, demonstrating our brokers’ wide expertise in the communities you may wish to call home. If you see a property you love, please reach out to your LIV Sotheby’s International Realty Broker who can find you another intriguing option that exceeds your expectations.

Speaking of great expectations, we are all thrilled to be moving toward full reengagement with the arts and hospitality industries so deeply affected by recent events. We encourage you to support the local restaurant community by trying some of our favorite spots within Colorado’s culinary scene. In “LIV for Local Flavor,” we give you a menu of fabulous restaurants to keep in mind for your next date night or take-out order. In “Out to Lunch,” you can learn more about Meow Wolf, Denver’s latest attraction, where we sit down with creative director, Chadney Everett, to discuss the importance of embracing Denver’s community of artists that are bringing this one-of-a-kind installation to life.

Sit back, enjoy your favorite beverage, and take a deep dive into this issue of LIV Magazine. As always, we thank you, our clients, for the privilege of letting us assist you in the pursuit of #thelifeyoulove.

President, Denver Metro LIV Sotheby’s International Realty
