We have been living and working in the Vail Valley for almost 20 years now (geez that’s a big number). It’s been great for us and we love helping people either visit or live here.
The ownership of a home, condo, town home or ranch here, we’ve seen, is a dream for many people. We found Vail by visiting and skiing here. We skied here and then thought about the possibility of living here full time – you know, when you vacation somewhere, then want to live or own there? It took some hard knocks and courage to eventually be lucky enough to live here and call the Valley our home. When you hit a barrier, push through.
We Listen and let you finish your sentences
You have your own goals, the things you want in your home and a price point. You not only want someone to listen, but need them to listen. It’s not about selling something or buying something. This is about your life and it’s a big decision on an additional home. Of course we have to work together towards this and we are here to do our part.
We encourage you to look around and explore – maybe rent before you buy
A good way to get started is either letting us know your goals or just searching for properties on our site (based on the amount you want to spend or invest – or look on other property web sites). Get comfortable with how properties physically look in areas of interest. Does the neighborhood look like a place you would want to live? Is the climate too hot or too cold? Are homes in one area far more expensive than another? It can be a big challenge if you don’t know the areas, so don’t get frustrated. Look around, then let’s talk. Once you know what you like and figure out your price point, we can guide you from there.
Another great way to figure out the area is to DRIVE around when you visit. Explore and find out where things are that ARE IMPORTANT TO YOU.
We help you figure out what is important
Is walking around in Vail Village the critical decision point for you? Is the number of bedrooms the most important item? Are you hoping to have a property that is close to a creek or river? Do you plan on living here part time? Full time? Do you like to walk or ride bicycles? Things that start out being critically important often become less important the more you look – and the more you know.
Look, look, look…
It is of great benefit to look at the home options that may work for you and not try to skip this step. While sometimes you find the home you want immediately, it does not happen often. Viewing a home does NOT have to be done by you, in person. We are happy to use the latest technology so that we can view homes together and get you familiar with the layout and features BEFORE you have to visit and look for yourself.
Little pressure until you are ready to buy or sell
We will not lose touch with you but we also will not pressure you to make a decision quickly (there are cases where you must make a quick decision – basically it depends on WHERE you want to own a home). We look to build a relationship with you where we are your ’employee’ and your partner. We will provide you with information based on what we are hearing and check in from time to time to see how you are doing. Once you are ready to buy or sell, however, the urgency increases and the importance to managing dates and getting things done is critical. So at this point we push to be sure you are successful.
Again, don’t let this overwhelm you. We are here to help. Call today at 970-949-1993.
