Meet Liz

 

Renowned for her tireless work ethic and undaunted tenacity, Liz Richards has been a top producing Global Real Estate Advisor since 2004. A Chicago native, Liz moved to Boulder in 1997, then to Denver in 2002 and has never looked back. She considers herself a brand ambassador of sorts “for all things” Colorado. Liz’s passion for animals (her dog Elleanor Bigsby is the apple of her eye), the outdoors, art, and music are nourished by the city life of Denver while her favorite activities of skiing, horseback riding, hiking, paddle boarding, and cycling are fulfilled with her treasured “mountain-time” in Summit County.

 

With over 20 years of experience and a vast network of industry professionals, Liz is often able to bring her Buyers very choice “off market” opportunities. Once Liz identifies her clients’ wants and needs via an in-depth discovery process, the games begin! Paying close attention to her clients’ aesthetic inclinations, floorplan wants, and neighborhood desires, Liz embarks on an aggressive search campaign which encompasses the traditional route of MLS listings, “quiet listings” within the Sotheby’s network, and an aggressive outreach to off-market homes. 

 

Liz has an uncanny knack for spotting aesthetic potential, pin-pointing the next "up and coming” neighborhood, and spot-on instincts for seamlessly matching Buyers with the perfect home. Her approach is much like a dating “matchmaker” combined with guerilla warfare/private eye search tactics.

 

When it comes to listing homes, Liz is a firm believer that the “devil is in the details”. She takes on a full concierge mode in helping Sellers get their homes ready for market. Orchestrating and overseeing the “editing of the interior” (a.k.a. decluttering), painting, handyman fixes, and pre-inspections, all with the goal of pitch perfect presentation and avoiding derailment once under contract.  Liz engages her vetted trades people and manages the home readying process from start to finish. Liz and her team aim to make the front-end prep work of getting a home to market as stress free and efficient as possible.

 

Liz thrives on the personal connection she establishes with her clientele, working with Buyers and Sellers as a trusted life-long real estate advisor. She takes on a consultative approach that reaches far beyond the end of a transaction. It is Liz’s single-minded focus, attention to detail, and superior negotiation skills that have earned her a reputation of top-notch professionalism, and superior sales results which put her in the top 1% of the real estate industry.
