The Boulder Burgundy Festival is pleased to welcome its new partner, LIV Sotheby’s International Realty Boulder.

We recently reached out to its vice president and managing broker Christina Davies (above) and asked her about her firm’s new partnership with the festival.

“I’ve been in real estate in the Boulder area for 15 years,” said Christina, “and so I already knew about the festival and I had heard really rave reviews from everyone who’s been involved with it. And I knew that it would be a really fun thing for our firm to do because I thought our brand and this festival would complement each other well. I thought it would be a nice way to get in touch with our community.”

LIV Sotheby’s International Realty is a collaborative partnership, backed by a world-class brand, passionate about helping people grow.
