Greetings from Vail!

Another beautiful summer is flying by, and what an enjoyable summer it has been! The GoPro Games, Bravo Vail Valley Music Festival, the Vail International Dance Festival, hiking, biking, flyfishing, kayaking... and the list goes on! Never a shortage of fun activities here in the mountains!

Our real estate market continues to do well, and year-to-date numbers are very solid. As you can see in my Luxury Market Update, almost all price niches are very comparable with 2015, with the exception of $5 million and above. Whether Vail, Aspen, Telluride or other resort areas, the upper end of the market is exhibiting softness at the moment. Yet even this niche is showing signs of life, with a number of notable properties now under contract. It will be interesting to see how things play out over the rest of the summer and fall. Stay tuned for more!

A fun summer season, 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. I'll look forward to seeing you this summer!

With my warmest regards,
