Led Gardner

If you were to ask around town, Led's clients would tell you that he has made his mark in Vail Valley luxury real estate by way of superior service, aggressive high-quality marketing, intense focus and a warm, personal approach to his business. Sharing the Vail lifestyle while assisting his clients pursue their Colorado dream is one of Led's favorite pastimes. It is also the reason that many of his clients become good friends... and many of his friends become clients!

Following successful tenures at Xerox Corporation and Coldwell Banker Commercial Real Estate in Nashville, Tennessee, Led found himself asking the question "If I could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?" Having had close ties to the Rocky Mountains since his youth, Led first made a part time move to Vail in February of 1989.

Moving to the Vail Valley full time in 1998, Led quickly established a successful reputation in the luxury real estate market. After a decade of success as both broker and lead partner in smaller, boutique brokerages, Led's desire to best serve his clients' needs ultimately led him to the flagship Bridge Street/Vail Village office of Slifer, Smith & Frampton. In conjunction with the company's deep pool of marketing resources and talent, Led's personal experience in developing, brokering and investing in resort real estate has positioned him well to serve the specialized needs of a very discerning, high-end clientele.

Led's tenure with Slifer, Smith & Frampton has proved fruitful, resulting in numerous accolades within the company. Included are #1 broker in the Bridge Street office, consistent Top 5, Top 10 and Top 20 rankings amongst the company's 100+ brokers, recipient of the company's cherished "Brokers Choice" award (twice) and "Standards of Excellence" award, both of which reflect Led's unsurpassed reputation among his fellow brokers.  This track record led to his being hired as the Branch Broker (manager) of the top-producing Bridge Street office in 2016, where Led continues to broker the sale of resort property while leading a talented team of successful brokers.

Giving back to his profession, and his community, is another passion. Led has served two terms as a Director of the Vail Board of Realtors, six years as a Trustee on the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival board, Council member and two-term President of his church, and two-term President of his own Homeowners Association, as well as serving on several other boards, property owner associations and marketing and development committees. Serving as a mentor via his leadership role in local Mens Fraternity groups (www.mensfraternity.com) has been another meaningful activity for Led.

Led remains most grateful to have the opportunity to conduct business, and raise a family, in this beautiful part of the world. Led, Connie and Chase thrive on the many activities that surround them, with a special passion for skiing and biking. Looking back over the past twenty-eight years in the Vail Valley brings about a sense of heartfelt gratitude, something Led enjoys sharing with his clientele, family and friends.

Enjoying your Vail Valley dream home is great fun. Yet its acquisition and eventual sale are serious business. Helping you accomplish these dreams is Led's business, and he looks forward to the opportunity to be of service to you and your family.

Testimonials

Led Gardner "quarterbacked" the marketing and recent sale of our home. From our first interaction, he was very professional and knowledgeable. He welcomed our input and respected our needs, thoughts and opinions. The listing was very well done. He and his team incorporated compelling descriptions, professional photography and impressive aerial imagery, all of which worked in concert to show off our home beautifully. Led's brochures, postcards and print advertising were also first class. We especially appreciated the widespread exposure including local newspapers and the Internet, including exposure on the Slifer company website, LuxuryPortfolio.com, and Zillow. The fact that Led personally attended almost all showings and open houses meant a lot to us. Once under contract, Led and Chelsea attended to the many details necessary to ensure a smooth and successful closing. His extensive network of local professionals was very helpful when we needed assistance with our home inspection and remediation process. Bottom line, Led's professional skills, marketing resources, in-depth knowledge of the local market, and financial commitment all came together to generate the very successful sale of our home.
