What sets Liz Richards apart from your average real estate agent? A tremendous drive to be the BEST in the industry achieved through a devotion to extremely high standards of customer service, a far-reaching referral network, an extensive knowledge of new construction and the remodeling of older homes, and an intense love for and involvement in the Denver real estate market. My knowledge spans the realm of infill development, historic preservation, and property rights. By helping clients to buy and sell real estate I exercise my passion on a daily basis. I view my role as a real estate agent to be in the consultant arena. My responsibility with clients does not end after the transaction is complete but is instead an ongoing relationship. I continually strive to furnish my clients with relevant, cutting edge information as it pertains to their real estate investments. Depending on my clients needs, such data can range from weekly sales statistics, current market inclinations, and referrals for home improvement tradesmen, neighborhood happenings, and home design trends.
Prior to being a realtor I worked in high tech sales in the corporate arena. While living in Chicago I worked for MCI in outside sales. I then moved to Boulder and worked for GE Access; a major distributor of Sun Microsystems. While the high tech world was not my passion, it furnished me with an excellent foundation from which to launch my real estate career. Acute customer service skills, negotiating tactics, marketing strategies, time management, and detailed sales trainings are just some of the educational provisions that I gleaned from technical sales experience. Since beginning my real estate career in 2004, I have been a member of the Denver Board of Realtors Million Dollar Roundtable from 2004-2011, Kentwood $10 million Club, Kentwood Top Producers. I have consistently achieved a sales volume beyond 10,000 million dollars in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. I have completed over 500 transactions to date (4/1/12). One of my favorite aspects about real estate is that with each transaction, valuable experience is gained. The art of negotiation is a muscle that must be flexed in order to remain strong. Picking a realtor steeped in achievement and experience will only benefit the client. I enjoy the wide variety of transactions that the real estate world provides. I work the real estate gamut from sellers, first time buyers, savvy investors, fix and flippers, historic remodelers, builders, and 1031 exchanges.
Infill development is a passion of mine. I was instrumental in spearheading the Flats 15 development in Lohi from the project's conception, through its completion. I have also helped to complete 3 residential remodels and the complete construction of my former house in LoHi. Other projects that I have helped to market and sell are: Metroview, 2900 Wyandot, Gilpin Grove, Highland Overlook, 1200 Delaware, Vision on Zuni, Rue Q, One Lincoln Park, Wash Park Row Homes, Zuni Townhomes, Vallejo Townhome, Umatilla 4, LoHi Row, St. Luke's Row, and Mondo Condos.
The real estate market is a forever changing environment. What worked 10 years ago may not necessarily be the best formula for today's success. Because the real estate industry has become more sophisticated and challenging, you need a professional who thoroughly understands the business and strives to be the best. I'm committed to staying at the top of my game and being one of the highest producing and performing realtors in Denver. My exceeding energy, unbridled enthusiasm, and positive attitude serve to compliment my extensive business skill set. Also noteworthy are the numerous articles I have written for local publications such as the Rocky Mountain News, The Denver Business Journal, and the North Denver Tribune. I strive to continue to position myself as a Denver real estate authority.
