Chris Klug was born and raised in Aspen, Colorado and knows a thing or two about athletic achievement and real estate success. He got involved in the sport of snowboarding in the early days and was a three-time Olympic Winter Games participant and 2002 Bronze Medalist in Salt Lake City. As the recipient of a liver transplant, Chris started the Chris Klug Foundation in 2004 with the mission of promoting life-saving donation and helping improve the quality of life for donors, recipients, and transplant families. 

Chris leveraged his snowboarding career, non-profit experience, motivational speaking, and passion for the outdoors into an extraordinarily successful real estate career in a short amount of time with Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty.

In the episode we cover successful marketing strategies that have propelled Chris to one of the top producers in Aspen Snowmass, the challenge of balancing family life with athletic achievement, and finding a job you love so you never have to work another day in your life.
