Seller Resources

Since the founding of the Sotheby’s Auction House in 1744, the Sotheby’s name has earned renown as a marketer of the world’s most valuable and prestigious possessions. This reputation is built as much upon exceptional service to clients as on the art and holdings that pass through the Sotheby’s offices around the world. In 1976, Sotheby’s recognized that the firm could serve its auction clients in a valuable new way with a complete package of estate disposition services. Founded on the same commitment to exceptional service that characterized the firms dealings for more that two centuries, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand was born. Today, we at LIV Sotheby’s continue that focus by the quality of service and marketing we offer to our clients in Denver.

I am proud to be a part of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty and am committed to providing the same high level of professionalism, customer service and marketing excellence for sellers in every price range as a Washington Park Realtor. My service to you is much more than placing a sign in your yard and entering your home in the multilist service.

My commitment to your marketing plan:

  • Based on current market conditions, help you determine the proper price at which to list your home
  • Assist you with the presentation of your home for showings including providing you with names of vendors that will help you make any necessary corrections
  • Professionally photograph your home using the highest quality of photographs for internet marketing as well as print marketing
  • Launch your listing to dozens of web sites, including my own
  • Prepare a full color brochure highlighting the best features of your home
  • Distribute the brochure to our local offices
  • Create a dynamic direct mail campaign
  • Advertise your home in media (online and or print)
  • Host a tour for our agents to view your property
  • Host an open house, if you prefer, to drive further awareness
  • Provide you with a copy of all advertising

Most importantly, I will communicate with you during the entire process, informing you of all responses and inquiries relating to your home, and providing you with any feedback I may receive from other agents. In addition, when your home is under contract, I will defend the price by meeting with the appraiser with a list of homes that have sold that are comparable to your home. The sale of a home is a process, not an event, and I will be there from beginning to well after the transaction has closed. As an experienced realtor, I know that selling your house in Denver can be a struggle on your own. Let me help you out.

Home Valuation Guide

Denver Information

Denver’s development personifies the American experience: There are periods of boom and bust, tranquility and tragedy, and through it all, the strength of the people prevailed, ultimately creating a thriving, beautiful city.

When a small amount of gold was found where the South Platte River and Cherry Creek converge in the mid 1850’s, word traveled quickly and people came by any means necessary. By 1858 the town of St. Charles had developed to serve the needs of those living in mining towns. In 1859, Denver City was officially born.

Early life in Denver was filled with struggle. During the 1860s, the city overcame several major challenges: a tremendous fire, a flood of Cherry Creek that killed numerous people, and several attacks by Native Americans. When the Union Pacific Railroad chose to build its route through Wyoming, bypassing Denver, residents raised enough money to build their own line connecting Denver and Cheyenne, which solidified Denver’s role as a major city of the West. Growth came with the railroad, and by 1879, Denver’s population approached 35,000.

Denver survived the Silver Crash of 1893 to become a thriving city. Construction of elaborate mansions on Capitol Hill called “Millionaire’s Row” (now Grant Street) was only the beginning. In 1908, completion of the capitol building was signaled by the addition of gold leaf to the dome. Parks and parkways were added to the rapidly maturing city, making Denver the “Queen City of the Plains.”

Today, Denver continues to thrive and its real estate market does as well. The fantastic climate and incredible scenery of the Rocky Mountains and the activities that they provide attract people from all over. With miles of bike paths throughout the metro area, museums, state of the art shopping, and a uniquely relaxed feel, Denver is a great place to call home.

Denver Relocation

Moving from one home to another is traumatic, no matter the distance. Moving from one part of the country to another is even more difficult due to all of the “unknowns” associated with a new location. In order to feel more confident about a Denver Relocation, it’s important to know a few facts about Denver. Since each and every person’s needs are different, it’s best that you express those needs as clearly as possible to someone who is a position to know how to respond.

From my experiences as a top Wash Park realtor, your most important goal when relocating is getting connected. I carry only the finest Denver homes for sale in Cherry Hills, Bonnie Brae, Polo Club Lane, Cherry Creek, Greenwood Village, Country Club, Wash Park, University/Observatory Park, and Hilltop in all price ranges. Personally, I believe that once you move here, you will never want to leave because Denver’s amazing lifestyle, weather, and access to the outdoors continues to attract people from every part of the country. In fact, only 40% of residents in Denver are natives.

Every aspect of your relocation is important and I understand that finding a home is only one part of that process.

If leaving Denver, in connection with the LIV Sotheby’s International Realty network of 7500 sales associates in 500 offices in the U.S. and 35 countries globally, it would be my pleasure to connect you with the right contacts wherever your move may take you.
