People & Lifestyle

The residents of Star Valley appreciate a lifestyle that harkens back to the region’s history of working properties and ranches, where a connection to the landscape and its resources was more important than fine dining or luxury experiences. That said, the area still has many incredible, modern homes that make the most of the landscape with panoramic views of the green valleys and snowy peaks that are an iconic feature of the region.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

There is a selection of delicious local restaurants to try, including The Grill at Star Valley Ranch, which is a popular, family-friendly choice for classic American sandwiches and more. One local favorite is Delish Donuts & Coffee, which has a selection of fun and experimental flavors of fresh donuts to choose from, as well as excellent coffee, drinks, and more.

This authentic Mexican restaurant is a busy spot for families who want to enjoy a fresh meal, drawing big crowds on the weekends.

Things to Do

Star Valley gives residents access to a variety of amazing outdoor experiences. The Palisades Reservoir is a popular destination located just across the nearby border with Idaho. It’s one of the best places to spend a day picnicking, swimming, boating, water skiing, and more. The Bridger-Teton National Forest is another great choice for those who want to spend their time enjoying the great outdoors thanks to its sprawling 3.4 million acres of public space full of beautiful rivers, preserved natural ecosystems, thriving wildlife, and miles upon miles of trails for biking and hiking. Star Valley also has multiple points of convenient public access to Salt River, which is known as a great spot for fly-fishing and waterfowl hunting.

Star Valley also hosts some exciting competitive outdoor sporting events, such as Snowmobile Hillclimb and All American Cutter Races that provide great entertainment and draw audiences from around the nation.

Colby Murphy

Real Estate Agent & Realtor Serving Jackson & Surrounding Areas

Born in the land of the Delta Blues, Colby Murphy grew up as a nationally ranked cyclist and avid outdoorsman. Colby's addiction for competition took his amateur cycling career through college, capturing silver at the USAC National Championship and a spot on Team USA for the 2013 UCI World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand. While attending Middle Tennessee State University, Colby volunteered coaching youth athletes in addition to interning with the D1 NFL Combine Camp in Nashville, Tennessee. It was freshman year when Colby was exposed to the magic of Jackson Hole. Instantly attracted, he began splitting his time to ski Jackson every year thereafter.

Upon publishing research in the International Journal of Exercise Science and receiving his bachelor’s degree, Colby immediately relocated to Southern California in pursuit of his professional cycling career. Once retired from competition, Colby quickly found himself as a top producing sales professional serving owners of high end luxury real estate in areas of San Diego including Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla, and Coronado. With his affection for luxury property, history with Jackson Hole, and prior connection to Christie's International Real Estate, Colby saw a clear path and executed a move to Jackson. In his spare time, he now enjoys turning laps at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and giving back at Jackson Hole Therapeutic Riding Association.

Colby is fortunate to have been raised around admirable examples of what drive, tenacity and resilience can yield. His father, a self-made entrepreneur, and uncle, an owner of the Christie's affiliate brokerage in San Miguel de Allende and Mexico City, both inspired Colby's ambitions from an early age.

Now, Colby has positioned himself among some of the most respected networks in the industry. He feels proud and blessed to have established relationships with multiple Christie’s affiliate owners and associates spanning multiple cities, states, and countries. Colby has also recently become a member of REALM™, the first globally collaborative real estate collective designed to empower the real estate professional by curating new relationships and matching qualified buyers based on lifestyle experiences and passions rather than search criteria.

In a market where there are as many agents as annual transactions, Colby represented clients from Australia, the UK, Mexico, and several U.S. states in his first year alone. He applies the principles and work ethic he learned through sport and his impressive circle of mentors to ensure he creates the highest value for his clients. Always elevating, always seeking excellence, his acquired values and attributes provide a successful combination that will ensure your selling or buying experience is a win.
