Malia took Vail and Beaver Creek luxury real estate by storm, quickly being recognized for her passion, intelligence, and candor. Her tech-savvy approach launched her to the top of luxury real estate culminating in her being named “Who’s Who” in Luxury Real Estate Outstanding Rookie in 2015. Six years later, Malia was the third producing real estate agent in the Vail Valley in 2019 and remains on top, selling nearly $100 million in 2020. Acknowledged as being in the top 0.1% in all of Colorado real estate agents*, Malia was given an award by LuxuryRealEstate.com for her significant sale, achieving the highest sales price of all time for a residence in Edwards, Colorado.
Malia has been rooted in the area for over 40 years, having grown up in the Vail Valley, and therefore brings a uniquely local experience to her clientele. After elementary through high school in the Vail Valley, Malia headed to the University of Colorado at Boulder where she earned a business marketing degree. She went on to the University of Denver College of Law and graduated at the top of her law school class - 6th out of 254 students. Although she retains her law license in Colorado, Malia shifted from active law practice to real estate when she and her husband took over her family property management company in 2004. After a number of years, Malia and her husband sold the property management company in order for her to fully focus on her real estate sales career and for her husband to fully commit to general contracting and real estate development.
Malia cultivates each of her listings by analyzing each property through the buyer’s lens as it relates to location, design, quality of construction and materials, and how those translate to value. She leverages the latest advances in marketing and visual media to “tell the story” and convey a lifestyle. Malia casts a wide net in her marketing approach, merging old and new with a huge digital footprint as well as targeted print media in order to maximize exposure to buyers, locally, throughout Colorado, nationally, and internationally. Malia notes that there is a much larger international presence in the area than statistics show due to entity ownership. Malia connects her properties to the right buyers at the right time with the right story being told.
She not only has great instincts but she is uniquely capable of analyzing data related to the market which helps provide her clients with easy-to-digest information to make intelligent decisions quickly. Malia asks the right questions to provide clarity, saving her clients time and money.
Malia works with various developers, and they can expect an unusually detailed and interactive approach to the analysis and presentation of data to instill confidence in direction. Malia is often highly personally involved in developments through collaboration on design, construction, and ultimately the successful sale, to help ensure that funds expended are directed to their highest and best use as they relate to return on the investment.
