TEN QUESTIONS ONE BROKER: Lindsay McBride

In this Slifer Denver Broker Profile Lindsay McBride talks about her mountain oasis, insider on a typical day in the Slifer Denver office and her love for romantic comedies. 

Most exciting part about being a broker at Slifer Denver:  Getting the opportunity to work with walk in’s.  People come into our sales office to check out our scaled model of downtown.  I’ve met people from all over the world stopping through Denver.  I love meeting new people and helping them learn about Denver and Riverfront Park.  Our office has such a great retail location you never know who will walk through the doors!

Super-power you’d want for a day: Being able to fly!   I love to SCUBA dive because you see the world from a different point of view.  Flying around and seeing the world from up high would be amazing!

What is your favorite movie or book:  I’m a hopeless romantic and can’t get enough love stories.  So whatever chick-flick is on I'll probably love.  

What do you do on your free time: I spend time with my wonderful husband and dogs.  We try to spend as much time outside as possible with the great Colorado weather.  I also have been spending a lot of time with my new nephew, Colby, he was born at the end of June and is pretty adorable!

Name one thing we might not know about you:  I get grumpy when I don’t eat on time especially at  lunch!  I need to eat at 12:00 not 12:01.   I try my best to not schedule showings around noon.  I don’t want to get “hangry” with a client!!!

What’s a typical day look like in the Slifer Denver office: We have a great group of brokers that are so fun to work with.  Usually there are about 3 or 4 brokers in the office on the phone, setting showings, bouncing new marketing ideas off each other and responding to emails.  It’s busy, but I’m a believer that activity breeds activity so I love working in the office as much as possible.  

We hear you have a mountain oasis … Tell us more:  My husband and I found a small cabin in Tabernash (near Winter Park) that we fell in love with last summer.  It has incredible views and is the perfect escape from the craziness of this real estate market.  We put in a hot tub last summer and there is nothing better than having a cocktail while watching the sunset!

And never be afraid… to do the right thing.  Always put your clients first and you will be rewarded with a successful business.

What has been the highlight of your career:  It’s hard to pick one moment.  I feel that every closing when I have a happy buyer or seller is a highlight.  I’m lucky to get a bunch of those every year.  

Summer real estate market.. Your take on why Denver is so hot this year: I know we’ve been talking about this for years, but inventory is still really low.  Denver is seeing huge population growth causing demand to stay high and our market really hot!  Denver is a great place to live so unless we can start building more houses and condos for sale I see this trend continuing for a while.
