Cold day here in Vail.  But if it is too cold to ski today feel free to drop by my listing at 387 Beaver Dam Circle.  Ski-In home, right next to the Gondola in Lionshead.  The home was built in 2000 but it feels brand new. 5 bedrooms including a caretaker studio. I've had early morning open house...

Here is a video showing the amazing snow on Vail Mountain. The Mountain is 97% open and we've had almost 150 inches of snow so far.  This is the season for a Vail trip or the purchase of a Vail home.  On the real estate front, as opposed to the skiing front, there is a noticeable uptick in activi...

Nearly 3 feet of powder in the last week.  Vail is certainly ready for center stage.  Not only is the Mountain looking great but the town has never looked better.  The almost 2 Billion (that is a B) Dollar Vail Renewal is almost complete.  The Ritz Carlton Residences are open.  Solaris, the new t...

Vail Mountain is going to open on Friday.  We've had over two feet of snow the past few days with much more on the way.  It is going to be a great season and amazing Opening Weekend.    As far as Real Estate goes, there is plenty of activity.  Lots of showings, lots of closings, lots of offers.  ...

I've had mixed feelings about a blog post about this touchy subject.  I don't want to jinx it.  But I think it is safe to let the world know that homes in Vail are selling.  The existing "for sale" inventory has been dramatically reduced.  At one point this summer we had almost 500 homes/condos f...

My head hurts.  I will admit it.  I'm a political activist.  I was an elected official.  I'm involved in my party.  I'm involved in my community.  I always vote.  I attend meetings.  I speak up.  I protest, when necessary.  But I will never mix my politics with my business.  I just don't understa...

It snowed last night and the magic of Vail is it is a Blue Sky Morning.  This really is an amazing place....even in the off season.  Right now there are some incredible opportunities to own a piece of Vail.  Once you are a home owner here, your relationship with the Town is completely transformed...

First let me say that I’m not going to upload a picture, because any picture that I take would feature tons of SNOW.  I don’t want to feature snow right now, it is May 1st tomorrow.  The Mountain is closed and it is still dumping here.  I must admit I’m ready for Summer.  So with that being said...
