LIV Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to announce that Alex Griffin will be leading the firm’s Vail Valley presence as the new Vice President and Managing Broker.
Griffin, who has been with Sotheby’s International Realty since 2012, is the successor to Dan Fitchett, who has led LIV Sotheby’s International Realty’s Vail Valley team of brokers for eight years. Moving forward, Fitchett will remain a valued resource and a trusted advisor to the firm’s offices throughout its various resort markets.
“Scott Webber, CEO of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, and I are pleased to continue fortifying the company’s future success and growth by welcoming the next generation of leadership in The Vail Valley,” said Fitchett, Vice President of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty’s Vail Valley offices. “I am excited to have the opportunity to work closely with Alex as he transitions into his new role and builds his own relationships with the team while strengthening his reputation as a leader.”
With more than a decade of real estate experience, a degree in real estate from Colorado State University, and an intricate knowledge of the community in which he lives and works, Griffin brings expert insight, a local perspective, and a passion for creating success stories to his new position as Vice President and Managing Broker.
“I am so grateful that Scott and Dan offered me this incredible opportunity to continue the success for this preeminent real estate affiliate,” expressed Griffin. “It was a decision I did not take lightly, and I am ready to step up to the responsibility for myself, my career, and most importantly, my family.”
When asked about what motivated him to accept the challenge of leading The Vail Valley offices, Griffin explained how he believes in the success and well-being of each and every broker in the company, and that together, they will be able to continue driving LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, The Vail Valley real estate community, and the industry as a whole forward. The combination of his track record of success and ambition for the future make Griffin the ideal broker to guide LIV Sotheby’s International Realty’s Vail Valley offices through its subsequent chapters.
“I know what it feels like to hustle and be in the proverbial trenches of keeping a transaction together as a broker,” commented Griffin. “Having been in a variety of challenges within this industry, I feel that I am uniquely qualified and prepared to assist our exceptional group of brokers through complex and successful transactions of all kinds. Dan Fitchett has set a high bar for me, and I am grateful that I will continue to have him involved as a trusted advisor, a mentor, and a friend.”
Griffin’s dedication to The Vail Valley is illustrated through his involvement with several local organizations both inside and outside of the real estate community. He has completed his term as the Chairman (President) of The Vail-Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in 2020 during which time he helped almost 800 members adopt a new MLS technology platform to enhance their business operations during the pandemic. As the Chair-Elect (incoming President) of the Vail Board of Realtors for 2022, he continues to be elected by his peers to lead our industry into the future.
Additionally, Griffin has served as the President of Radio Free Minturn (2017-2020), was selected as a member of the 2018 Young Professional Power Group, and has been involved in other non-profit organizations such as The Vail Valley Young Professionals Association, Vail Valley Mountain Trails Alliance, The Cycle Effect, and more.
As residents of Edwards, Griffin, his wife, Suzanne, their son, Kit, daughter, Ava, and their dog, Boomer, take every opportunity to enjoy the one-of-a-kind lifestyle that makes mountain living so amazing. Outside of the office, you might find Griffin skiing, mountain biking, or taking part in any number of outdoor activities that The Vail Valley offers.
As the newest leader at the helm of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty’s legacy in the Vail Valley, which Griffin affectionally refers to as “paradise,” he will play a part in helping each client and broker build a life they love through buying and selling real estate in the Rocky Mountains.
