Ep. 18: Doug Leibinger — It’s the Whole Package

Published on: 26th May, 2021

With over 25 years of real estate experience, Doug Leibinger has proudly helped some of the most accomplished people from around the world find their place in the Roaring Fork Valley. Doug is known for his business acumen, affinity for technology, and professionalism. He is a founding broker of Compass Aspen and the Wall Street Journal recognized him as one of the Top 125 Brokers in the U.S. His focus and dedication has placed him in the top 1% of brokers in Aspen and all of Colorado for many years and he recently surpassed $1 billion in career sales volume. An avid skier, fly-fisherman, and cyclist, Doug has combined his passion for people and the mountain lifestyle and melded them together to be a true expert in the field of luxury real estate. 

In our conversation we discussed the current housing cycle and whether or not it’s the right time to consider buying or selling a mountain home. We also touched on the unique financing and taxation challenges of working with an international client. Lastly, we talked about Doug’s passion for sharing the mountain lifestyle with his clients and what sets the Aspen Valley apart from other mountain communities.
