On Monday-November 14th, you will be lucky enough to experience a front row seat to the largest Super Moon since 1948! A Super Moon or Perigee Moon appears to balloon up to 14% larger than an Apogee full Moon (traditional moon) and beams up 30% brighter!


November 25th, 2034 will be your next opportunity to witness this spectacular gift of nature, so be sure to savor this moment. The best way to see this interstellar stunner is in a dark, open area, but, if you would like to add some bigger then life illusions to your experience, catch the moon as it rises along the horizon! It will appear even more magnificent!



The moons’ peak will be at 6:52 am on Monday morning, not to worry, that does not mean that it won’t be brilliant that evening, you might even need to wear your sunglasses!

Moondance anyone….?

Hi & good morning,

UNDER CONTRACT – 8 new UC properties are reported ranging from $124900- for a lot in Red Cliff to $850K up in Beaver Creek for a ski in/ski out.

PRICE REDUCTIONS – Two price reductions one for $50K the other for $19100-, worth looking at for a better deal.

NEW LISTINGS – 7 new listings range from $449K for a 3 Bdrm 3BA in Edwards to $4.3M for 360+/- Acres near Dotsero with an improvement on it.

If interested in these or any other property in the Vail Valley or surrounding area give me a call and I’ll do my best to answer your question or will find the answer if I don’t know it!

Have a good week…

Wolcott is one of the last large parcels on the valley floor yet to be developed here in the Vail Valley.?? And local developer Community Concepts Colorado has now released plans to the public and to the county on what they hope to do with this great opportunity.

Having previously seen this plan, it really is exciting to see the focus of the project on the natural surroundings, especially the Eagle River.? Re-aligning Highway 6 to run closer to I-70 is critical, as this opens up acres of river frontage and allows for easy pedestrian and bike access throughout the community.? 65% of the 1100 acres are slated to remain open space.? Solar powered golf carts and people movers are envisioned to make less of an environmental impact.? Community spaces and amenities are highlighted in some of the best locations within the parcel, not as an after thought.

In keeping with the county’s Wolcott master plan, the developer intends to have a balance of residential units, with entry level and higher end properties.? There will also be a good blend of retail and professional spaces, as well as a dedicated “restaurant row” that overlooks the community park and the Eagle River.

Members of the neighboring? Bellyache and Red Sky Ranch?communities are excited to have some commercial development closer to home.? Especially one that favors neighborhood over sprawl and big boxes.? This development is in its very early stages and the developer is in no rush.? They want to get it right; and thus far it appears they are doing just that!!
