Iva was born and raised in a small town in the south-east part of Bulgaria. Childhood memories take her back to the small mountain town where her grandfather was mayor for over 25 years. Spending her summer days in the town hall and observing his work taught her lessons of courage, perseverance and integrity.
Iva is now proud to call Telluride home. The exhilarating beauty of the town and surrounding vistas, combined with its colorful heritage, modern development, and uniquely vibrant community are what called Iva to Telluride in 2010 and are what will keep here for life.
Iva began her education in Europe and earned her BA in Business from Metropolitan State University of Denver. Prior to moving to Telluride, Iva owned and operated a successful small business and fine-tuned her knowledge of real estate with 5 years of experience as a property adjuster.
