Greetings from Vail, as we enter the heart of the ski season with fresh snow in the forecast this week and lots of activities on tap! The weeks ahead will be busy, and FUN, here in the Vail Valley!

The Vail real estate market is demonstrating a renewed strength in the high-end niche, which had languished badly as late as the 3rd Quarter of 2016. Five homes listed between $13 million to $26 million have closed since December, including the record $23 million sale of 107 Rockledge Road. Slifer, Smith & Frampton was pleased to have been involved in four of these notable transactions, working with either buyer, seller, or in two cases, both parties. I expect this momentum to continue throughout the remainder of the ski season. The sale of both the Four Seasons and the Cascade Resort in 2016 were yet another strong indicator of investor confidence in the Vail market, leading to optimism for continued strength in the new year. Stay tuned for more!

Terrific snow, an active real estate market, and a healthy, happy family are all reminders of why I am so grateful to live and work here in Vail. What a blessing it is to call this beautiful place "home", and to be able to share it with family and friends... something of which I never tire. See you on the mountain soon!

With my warmest regards,
