The life you love.


elcome to the Summer 2022 issue of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty’s signature publication, LIV Magazine. I am always eager to share the newest issues with you because it signals a change of the seasons and marks a time for reflection and growth. As we look back on the last two years, I want to share my gratitude for our talented team of brokers and the clients who entrusted us in the search for their dream lifestyles and homes.

The world has shifted drastically since the start of the pandemic, and this shift resulted in new consumer desires that sparked unprecedented market growth and a mountain migration like never before. A new work-life balance emerged where people live where they play rather than where they work, and thanks to infrastructure advancements and technological capabilities, living in and working from Colorado’s highest summits and deepest valleys became a reality. This lifestyle change led many of you to our resort communities, where our reputation as Colorado’s leading luxury real estate firm preceded us and our brokers welcomed you to the area and into their lives. Our success in the industry comes down to the people we meet and the relationships we build, and I am honored that when many of you are faced with the ability to move anywhere and work with anyone, you choose our brokers and our backyard.

For those of you who have lived in Colorado for a while, you know that summer here is unlike anywhere else. Endless sunshine and blue skies provide the perfect backdrop for warm-weather memories; from high alpine adventures to in-town outings, our resort communities come alive with eager visitors, family, and friends. And for those of you that are new to Colorado or are thinking of making it your primary or secondary home, welcome! Summer is just getting started, and we can’t wait to share what is in store.

In this issue, you can browse exceptional properties for sale throughout Colorado’s coveted resort communities, learn about the important work Colorado Parks and Wildlife does in our exclusive “Out to Lunch” interview, and plan your next outdoor adventure with the help of “Colorado’s Adventure Checklist.” While you’re reading about where to visit and what to do this summer, be sure to mark your calendars with our extensive list of summer events and gain insight on Colorado’s record-breaking real estate market in the article, “Colorado Resort Markets Continue Their Ride.” Last but not least, brush up on the color of the year and its best interior design uses in, “Colorful Colorado.”

At LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, we’re more than just brokers to our clients, we’re advocates and advisors. We look after our clients and help them navigate the market successfully, which is why in this continuously record-breaking era, it is essential to work with a firm that holds itself to the highest standards of excellence, coupled with worldwide exposure and support. In Colorado, summer is a beautiful and busy time, and as you embark on your real estate journey, it is important to understand the market’s ebb and flow, know when to rest and recharge, and most of all, take time to enjoy life. On behalf of our brokers, support staff, and leadership team here at LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, we wish you and your loved ones a happy, healthy, and fun-filled summer.

See you on the trails!


President, Colorado Resort Markets, LIV Sotheby’s International Realty
