Tom Harris is the founder and a Principal of Colorado Lifestyle Real Estate. After a 20 year career in commercial real estate, he and his family moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado in the mid 1990s where he then focused on resort real estate.
“There was a real disconnect in resort real estate. Unlike commercial real estate where agents specialize in office, retail, industrial and land (and some even specialized further by representing only tenants or landlords) resort real estate was a complete free for all.
“There had to be a better way for people to get the service they deserved and get connected to the best Realtor to help them. Specialization worked well in commercial real estate – why couldn’t it work in resort real estate?”
After much research, a few things became obvious:
- Most people think Realtors are all about the same.
- Many people select a Realtor for all the wrong reasons.
- There was no referral company anywhere that actually qualified Realtors. Any agent could join these referral networks for $39 to $99 a month; regardless of experience, competency or capability.
- Effectively qualifying Realtors is a long, arduous process and many people have neither the time nor inclination to do it.
“So, in 1997, Colorado Lifestyle Real Estate was born. Our selection criteria for Realtors has become more sophisticated and our network of Realtors has expanded over the years to serve both the greater metropolitan Denver area and the mountain towns of Colorado.
“We are unique in that we focus only on Colorado. We don’t try to be all things to all people. We serve the astute buyers and sellers of real estate in Colorado by connecting them to the best hand picked, professional Realtors. We want you to have the best real estate experience possible.”
Colorado Lifestyle Real Estate values being a good corporate citizen.
