Selling The Mountains
My guest today is Theo Williams. Theo is originally from Sheffield, England and found his way to Aspen after being chosen to coach a local soccer team and build a nonprofit soccer club. He quickly fell in love with the active mountain lifestyle, accepting community, and relaxed culture which led him to call the Roaring Fork Valley home. His passion for helping people and building lasting relationships, as well as expertise in the hotel and rental industry, led him to real estate. When he isn’t working, you can find him pursuing his passion for fitness, hiking, and biking. He was recently honored with the Community Service Award from his brokerage firm Slifer Smith & Frampton after biking from Aspen to Santa Monica, California raising $26,000 for the Aspen Hope Center. In our conversation we covered...The challenges of starting out as a new broker and the most important things to focus on.How following your passion and tackling something that seems impossible can lead to bigger opportunities and outreach far beyond what you ever imagined. Diversity and tolerance in a mountain town and the importance of speaking up if you don't think something is right.This episode is brought to you by The Romero Group — a full service property management and investment company based in the Roaring Fork Valley since 2015.
