After getting married in San Diego in 1992, my husband and I came to the Vail Valley to ski for a season and enjoy the winter before settling down to have children. At the time I was working for IBM, commuting to New York regularly. After spending our first ski season here, we fell in love with the lifestyle and the peacefulness of the mountains. So we decided to spend the summer here too that year, which sealed the deal! We came for the ski seasons but stayed for the summers, a common thread among many of Vail’s locals. In 1994, we had a son named Broby and in 1996, a daughter named Gabriela. Both children were born and raised in the Vail Valley, attending Vail Mountain School. My son eventually transferred to the Vail Ski & Snowboard Academy so he could ski and train daily.
Broby developed a love for skiing competitively at the age of eight and wanted to seriously prepare for a career in skiing. Studying in between skiing, training and competitions, he has definitely lived the life! He has travelled all over the world as a professional skier and is now finishing his college education. My daughter grew up skiing and dancing in the Vail Valley. Her extensive training led to a dance scholarship at LMU in Los Angeles in 2015.
In 2003, I left my IBM career in sales and marketing to pursue real estate in the Vial Valley. I was tired of travelling and missing my son’s soccer games and daughter’s ballet recitals! A product of extensive real estate training over the years, I have consistently been a top producer here at Slifer, Smith & Frampton. While I specialize in the luxury real estate market, I love to sell any kind of home that suits the needs of my array of clients. I have knowledge of and personal experience with a variety of neighborhoods in the Vail Valley as my husband and I have owned homes in Edwards, Vail, and Wolcott, among other areas. My dear husband of 30 years passed away from cancer in February of 2015.
As an expert in the Vail Valley I can tour you around on the ski mountain, talk restaurants, shops, ski equipment, schools, non-profits, and most importantly, REAL ESTATE. Let me be your guide for today, tomorrow or five years from now. Many of my clients have become longtime friends and I value our relationships. Thank you in advance for visiting me in my office. Please call me any time for anything related to the Vail Valley. I look forward to a new friendship!
