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,

Wednesday morning here in the Vail Valley we experienced our season’s 1st dusting of snow to blanket most if not all of the ground at least from Edwards to the East.  Of course it was short lived and only at the upper elevations is it sticking, the rest has melted.

Here are some stats as of this morning according to the Vail MLS.

SOLDS – 11 properties have sold, ranging in price from a parking spot in Vail for $100K- to $999K for a single family home in Singletree.

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…

WOW!   12/5/6/5  This morning shows 12 new SOLD properties, 5 UNDER CONTRACT, 6 PRICE REDUCTIONS & 5 NEW LISTINGS.  In recent days the market continues to move along with plenty of properties available whether it be for land, a permanent primary residence, second home or time share for summer/winter fun.

SOLDS are for the past several days and range from around $285,000- up to over $14,000,000-.  It is quite a range of property values for sure.  What is important simply is there is a property out there for you most likely at a price which is affordable for you.

UNDER CONTRACT properties are those pending with an accepted offer by the seller from a buyer and they are now working through the process to meet all of the contractual terms, be it an inspection, financing, or it could be one or more of many other terms to yet be fulfilled.  Some meet all the requirements and move to the SOLD category others do not and may then return to LISTINGS back on the market.  The range of listed properties UNDER CONTRACT are from $275K to over $2.2M.

PRICE REDUCTIONS on average is $42,650- of Listed properties.  Keep in mind the spread of Listing prices are from the $400K to over $2.4M.  Regardless, there are motivated sellers and is this the time for you to make your move?

NEW LISTINGS on the market are located from East Vail to Gypsum.  They range in listing price from $465K up to $3.2M.  Is this in your price range?  Could this be one of the areas you are considering?

Yes indeed…a quick look up toward the top of most hills and one will see the change of colors.  It was a couple of weeks ago when I first noticed yellows on the tip of tree branches.  It is a welcome site to me and I enjoy the color variations displayed.  Do You?

Aspens in Vail

It is the cooler nights which prompted the color change and this week in Edwards we have dipped below the forty degree mark more than once.  Don’t get discouraged…the daytime temps have been glorious in the mid-seventies with plentiful sunshine.  This cycle is expected to continue for awhile, so come up and join or visit us!

In case you have missed it…and I’m guessing you have, I have continued my streak of putting my listings under contract in under 30 days. Over 60% of these listings had previously been listed for an extended time with other brokers at the same or lower price. So, not only am I getting fast results, I am getting my client a higher price for their property.


If you find yourself thinking about listing your home, or are having problems selling your home, give me a call. I will meet with you and give you an honest no non-sense evaluation of your property with no obligation. As my record shows, I do not collect listings, I sell listings. I focus on providing my clients with the individual attention and care that I would want selling my home. I take every listing as a personal challenge to get the maximum dollar for their home in the least amount of time.

Next time you are looking for a Broker in Eagle County, remember you have choices…but most of all, remember Greg Peterson!

Remember you can always follow me on Facebook and Twitter.

Located in the Heart of Homestead, at the top of the 1st Filing, is the Crown Jewel of the Neighborhood, the recently remodeled Homestead Court Club!


A mere 10 minutes west of Vail, Colorado ~ wildly popular Edwards is an easy place to be!  Situated on the Eagle River, Edwards is comprised of roughly 100 businesses and retail stores, post office, movie theaters, restaurants, medical services and SUN!  Notoriously warmer than Vail and sunnier ~ many folks call it home!  I am among them, having owned homes in both Singletree and Homestead, the original subdivisions of this unincorporated portion of the Eagle County.  Though not formally a “town”, Edwards was, a few years ago, voted “Best Ski Town in America!”  Who knew a sunny little expanse in the Valley once home to cattle, a gas station that sold donuts & coffee and eventually a quarry would ever go onto to earn that moniker!

Centrally located, Edwards is designed for and all about Dining, Shopping, Fishing, Skiing, Bicycle Riding, Hiking, Cross-Country Skiing, Snowboarding, Kayaking, River Rafting, Mountain Climbing, Horseback Riding, Skateboarding and so much more!

Strategically located, Edwards and Homestead are convenient to the Eagle County Regional Airport and Jet Center, Steamboat Springs, Vail, Beaver Creek, Arrowhead, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone, Aspen, Snowmass AND Denver!  Roughly 100 miles east via Interstate 70 this commute now boasts a peak-volume express lane east out of the mountains once over the Eisenhower-Johnson Tunnels! In Edwards lies the beloved Riverwalk Village commercial area, the heart of Edwards. 

When I moved to the Vail Valley in 1993 and began practicing real estate, Homestead was just gaining traction as a neighborhood. The Master Developer, Robert Warner, Jr. was busy building townhomes in what is affectionately known as Middle Homestead (Filing 3).  Not much development in Edwards at the time, there were swirls of dust flying around Homestead and I could tell it was shaping up to be a wonderful Neighborhood and that something big was about to happen; that something turned out to be Filing 2 in Upper Homestead where I went on to sell many of the first dozen lots sold and then onto represent a Canadian Developer, Glen Wood (Canwest LLC) in the creation and sale of numerous luxury new construction projects both there and across the interstate in Singletree!  In 1998 I became an Owner of a Canwest Home in Singletree and then in 2006 I made my move to become a Homestead Homeowner and have owned in Lower Homestead (Filing 1) ever since!

Homestead is composed of 760 acres, 3 filings of single-family homes, town homes and multi-family housing accommodating a great mix of singles, families, retirees and second homeowners. We have approximately 835 residences and over 400 acres of open space within our planned unit development, and at the center of it all is The Homestead Court Club.  Nearby is the core of the Open Space providing protected areas to hike forever more!  Grab your dog and head to the main Trail Head located off of Cameron Place in Middle Homestead.


Twenty-three years later, Homestead is 95% built out, the landscaping and trees have matured over the decades and the Home Owner’s Association has accomplished much including a land swap that created an open space preserve for all to enjoy.

A “Quote”, short for a  “Quotation”.  A noun that, according to the most recent edition of the Cambridge Academic Content Dictionary, means simply:


“Quotation”:  a ​group of words from a ​book, ​play, ​speech, etc., that are ​repeated by someone who did not write them. In short form, “Quote”.

That’s it, that simple but….

I love quotes!  I love quotes from famous people; heck, I love thought-provoking or motivational phrases regardless of their origin and regardless of who, famous or infamous, said them!  

I love historical quotes that seemed distinctly ahead of their time when I first came to read them ~ and when read now, still do!  I love modern quotes that take me instantly to a simpler time in my life ~ and when read now, still can!  

I love quotes by spiritual leaders across the continents that stand true across time, that stand up as extraordinary even against the scrutiny of the masses, and I adore those quotes that apply to us all, every woman, man and child, everywhere on this Earth!  

To this day, and I’ve been a few days on this Earth, the power of the written word astounds me in the most delightful of ways!  The single most powerful path to intellectual and spiritual growth for me, even growth in the development of my personal business philosophies has historically come through the written word ~  often in the form of a quotation!  There are millions of famous quotes to be sure!  There are hundreds of quotes that have left me thinking…..some that have made me more kind and thoughtful and dozens that have renewed my hope.




“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” – Thomas Edison


I am moved by music, moved by nature, moved by certain human interaction, moved by any animal, anywhere, anytime….moved by special occasions with special people in my world ~ but at the end of the day I am most moved by the written word.  Here are some famous quotes borrowed from an article by my favorite Irish real estate training mentor, Brian Buffini, as seen in Inman News March 21, 2016.  I have provided photos to give you a visual of the men who said them: 




“I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.”  ~  Thomas Jefferson





“Success doesn’t just land in your lap with a bow on it.”  ~   Brian Buffini




“Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.”  ~  Jim Rohn




“We become what we think about most of the time.”  ~  Earl Nightingale


“Positive thinking allows you to maintain perspective in the face of challenges.”  ~  Brian Buffini

I can’t stop!  I can’t stop being moved by a good quote, awed by a great one.  I seem to be someone who reads fascinating thoughtful quotes that “change my life forever” on a regular basis! 

So, of course, I am curious….do you love quotes?  Next time I will present samples of Quotes from famous Women!  Until then, enjoy each moment of this day.  It is a gift, not to be missed!
