I am delighted to say that there are some great opportunities for real estate in the Vail Valley. I just?closed on a transaction where?I represented my buyer?in his successful bid for this home in?Cordillera Valley Club.

This is a stunning 11,000 square foot home originally listed for $9M+ and my buyers picked it up for $4.6M

There are many other great buys in the Vail Valley real estate market. In East Vail?I know of a 2 bedroom condo listed for $197,000 and a 3-bedroom town home listed for $499,000. The last two sales in this complex were in the mid $600,0000 range.? There is a one-bedroom where you ski to within a couple hundred meters that is listed in the $600,000 range. This same property?was going for nearly a million $ just a couple years ago.

If you would like more information on any of these or other properties in the Vail Valley and Eagle County please feel free to call me or send me an email.? I love helping people find the best real estate opportunities.

Family Skiing at Bachelor Gulch

Red Sky Ranch is known for world class golf!  Its 2 championship courses, designed by Tom Fazio and Greg Norman respectivley, have won many accolades including the #1 and #2 courses in Colorado by Travel & Leisure Golf.  BUT, you may not have known, Red Sky Ranch's trout filled ponds offer amazing Colorado fly fishing.

Rainbow Trout Caught in the Norman Pond

The rainbows and cut-bows offer great fights, and these are healthy fish (long, strong and fat!) Catching them is not as easy as one would guess; they have become more selective and choosing the right pattern is essential.  But it is very worth it when you hook into these beautiful fish!  Sight fishing is the method I suggest; walk around the pond until you see one of these monsters; throw your pattern of choice just in front of them, (elk hair caddis, hoppers, & damsels have all been successful depending on the time of year) maybe give it a little twitch and hopefully, you'll have a "Fish On!"

As a somewhat novice fly fisherman, I truly enjoy the opportunity to catch gorgeuos fish that put up a HUGE fight.  Learning how to land these big guys is a great lesson.  A more seasoned fisherman, like my friend pictured above, seems to have his way with these guys and yet still enjoys it as much as I do.  Young anglers can practice here as well with lure fishing allowed.  And catch and release is of course the rule.

Come to Red Sky Ranch for the excellent golf, but get the added bonus of catching great trout!

The fall season is here and winter will be here soon.? So NOW is the time to get out and enjoy the beautiful views and great golf that is Red Sky Ranch.? The Tom Fazio and Greg Norman courses are open for a few more weeks (as long as we don’t get too much snow too soon!) and are playing splendidly.?
