Landmark Moment: Company Announcement

On Tuesday, August 10, 2021, Colorado Landmark, Realtors’ Founder, Joel Ripmaster welcomed his daughter, Orly Ripmaster as the incoming President and Co-owner of the company, as well as Scott Ripmaster the new Vice President and Head of Recruiting.

Joel hosted a spirited transition announcement at Folsom Field, in the heart of The University. It felt fun and appropriate to kick off the announcement at this significant venue, as it’s been an integral part of his and his family’s lives. “As we lean into local, what could be more local than being right here in the heart of the buffalo!” – Joel Ripmaster

Colorado Landmark, Realtors’ story began in 1977, shortly after founder Joel Ripmaster, graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder, where he played football for the University of Colorado Buffaloes. Where he would spend his time hiking from campus to Chautauqua Park with his college sweetheart and later to be wife. The two young Midwestern students would walk and daydream about one day owning a home in Boulder, starting a family and a business, and spending a life here. Joel fell in love with Boulder, his wife, and residential real estate and what it represented to his young family. 

Over the last 45 years, Joel has committed to being a coach and mentor, and committed to Boulder. Colorado Landmark felt being independent and local is more important and sought after than ever before. “What we have built can’t be replicated!” Being one of the top independent agencies in the country is a huge accomplishment. With that, Joel realized that he needed a partner. A partner who can table the future while honoring the past and has the capacity, the drive, and desire to take the long view. He found his partner… A fellow real estate executive with 20 years experience in Real Estate and Private Equity, with an MBA in Real Estate from ESSEC Business School in Paris, France, Ivy League credentials with an honor’s degree from Harvard, and a Master’s in communications from the University of Colorado.  An athlete, a scholar, a Mom, a daughter and a Real Estate executive. She is joining the team as the retiring Senior Vice President and Chief of Staff of KSL Capital Partners. 

“I am humbled that she would ever consider leading this organization. Partnering with my daughter to establish a sustainable succession plan that ensures the DNA of Colorado Landmark, Realtors for years to come.”

Orly will strategize, modernize and bring vitality to the day-to-day operations and management of the business. Joel will continue to work shoulder-to-shoulder with Orly and will remain the Founder of Colorado Landmark, Realtors and named Principal of the organization. As Principal, Joel will remain to build and mentor the team and brand with his foundational knowledge and expertise, as well as manage and grow his own luxury sales. With 15 years in the business, Scott will bring fresh energy to our recruiting team and management to the Louisville location. His expertise and authenticity will be such a powerful accelerator for the brand and the voice. Colorado Landmark prides itself in being a local, independent, family-oriented real estate firm and is now female owned.

“We talk a lot about Landmark Moments and this week’s announcement was certainly amongst the most significant landmark moments in my career. It’s a really exciting time to be at Colorado Landmark. We will be leaning into our brand, galvanizing our messaging and and celebrating the power of our new positioning: Local, Independent, Family Built, Female Owned. Needless to say, I am so proud” – Founder, Joel Ripmaster

Landmark Moment: Habitat for Humanity Build Day

Our community is lacking in affordable and available housing, which is a core business problem as well as a social problem.  Colorado Landmark has partnered with Habitat for Humanity to try and solve this issue.

In addition to the hands-on contributions of the firm, like painting and labor, we are supportive of additional endeavors through the H4H Organization.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. Like us, H4H believes housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities. When you think of H4H, you might imagine a family buying a volunteer-built home for an affordable price. But there’s a whole lot more that goes into the organization’s efforts, and how businesses like ours can help.

If you think about the  housing process like we do everyday, you know so many more steps are needed to get a family into a  home than a fresh coat of paint. As Realtors, we know what first-time homebuyers are looking for and what they need to succeed in this hot market. We can help Habitat provide a  suite of services:

  • Homebuyer education and one-on-one coaching
  • Down payment assistance and closing cost help
  • Mortgage pre-approval from TCHFH Lending, Inc.
  • Affordable monthly mortgage payments
  • Post-purchase support

Habitat staff are here to help clients all along the way and are always open to working with local leaders like ours.

So whether it’s paint or advice or resources and training, Colorado Landmark is committed to improving life for the families of Boulder County by doing what we do best, getting folks into homes and supporting the creation of Landmark Moments.
