Michelle Parilla Joins Colorado Group Realty


Michelle Parilla has joined the Colorado Group Realty team.

“Michelle is a sharp and outgoing individual who has substantial knowledge of the market. Her past real estate experience made Michelle joining CGR a no-brainer. I can’t wait to see what she will accomplish here.” CGR Broker Associate Ashley Walcher said.

After growing up in the Chicago suburbs, Parilla spent 10 years in Denver, then decided to continue her journey west by relocating to Steamboat Springs.

Being a transplant herself, Parilla understands why those who were born and raised in Steamboat stay here, as well as the allure for those wanting to relocate here. In her first year selling real estate, she had the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, buying and selling ranches, single family homes and condos on the mountain.

Her favorite part of real estate is the relationships she’s built with her clients; these relationships are now lifelong friendships.

Timbers resort named best resort in Europe for 5th time

A sibling of Steamboat’s One Steamboat Place slopeside condominium development, Castello di Casole, was named the “best resort in Europe” for the fifth consecutive year in Travel  Leisure’s 2017 World’s Best Awards.

Castello di Casole is a 41-suite boutique hotel set in a sprawling estate, including a 10th-century castle turned luxury boutique in Tuscany, Italy. In addition, the resort ranked No. 22 among the Top 100 Hotels in the World. 

“We are honored that, in our five years since opening, Castello di Casole has been consistently recognized as the best resort in Europe,” said David A. Burden, founder and executive chairman of Timbers Resorts. “We congratulate our incredible staff on half a decade of achievement, as they work tirelessly to offer our guests unparalleled service and inspiring experiences, which are the pillars of the Timbers Resorts brand.”

Guests at Castello di Casole can indulge in spa treatments inspired by ancient Etruscan beauty rituals, sip on exclusive, estate-grown Dodici wine, cook authentic Italian cuisine at the resort’s new culinary academy, explore winding country roads by bicycle or behind the wheel of a Ferrari or simply bask poolside under the Tuscan sun.

The estate is also home to more than 100 acres of vineyards and olive groves and a model game reserve.
