Broker Associate/Team Leader – Cole Luxury Team
I moved to Vail, in 1972, after graduating from St. Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri with a Bachelor of Science degree and becoming a registered nurse. I lived in Vail until 1975 and worked as a Vail Ski School instructor. I left Vail in 1975, but returned in 1982 to begin my real estate career. I joined Coldwell Banker Timberline Real Estate in 1983, became an Owner/Partner in 1993. I was the Managing Broker from 2004 to 2011. Coldwell Banker Timberline Real Estate merged with Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties in November 2011. In November 2014 I joined with three other long-time Coldwell Banker Vail Valley Brokers, to become Coldwell Banker Devonshire, working with Buyers and Sellers in the Vail Valley. The Devonshire luxury brand is part of Colorado’s #1 Real Estate firm, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. The three other Brokers were my Partners at Coldwell Banker Timberline Real Estate and, together, we bring more than 125 years of combined experience to the Devonshire brand. I continue, now, as a Broker Associate and the Employing Broker of our Vail Branch.
As well as being a Top Producer within the Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corp., I have held leadership positions for the Vail Board of Realtors, the Colorado Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. I was a Senior Faculty member for the Colorado Association of Realtors for 22 years and I continue as a Vail Board of Realtors Trustee for the Western Mountain Resort Alliance.
Most real estate agents work alone, performing the dozens of tasks required to complete a transaction. I have adopted a Team concept. I am the Team Leader and am in constant communication with my Team. I spend most of my time doing top priority activities, such as meeting with Sellers to list property, showing prospective Buyers, negotiating contracts, prospecting and solving problems. All other tasks are delegated to my specialized Team Members; but, PLEASE, remember that you can call me directly.
I contribute my success to my diligence in working hard for you; keeping you informed from the start-to-finish of your transaction; and, being able to listen to your wants and needs. With 32 years of Resort Real Estate experience and local knowledge, my Team and I look forward to working with you.
