It is a good time to make an offer on a property in the Vail, Colorado.

Today alone there are 11 price drops on various properties.  There have been additional price drops in previous days.  What this potentially means for you as a buyer is the ability to get into a property for less than what you may have previously thought.

There may be motivated sellers out there and this could be your change to take advantage of it.

Don’t wait, contact me today and I will help you find the property you want and make an offer!

WOW!  Has the U.S. been performing well or what, 50 Medals and leading the pack!  Many examples of  great, incredible, unbelievable efforts and wonderful stories of athletes from the US team with the wide range of different sports competitions already in the history books with several World & Olympic records made.

It is truly difficult for me to comprehend the dedication both physical & mental strengths of  these individuals participating in these games.  Several 1st timers are on the scene, but it is the old timers which continue to make incredible and unbelievable performances leaving me in awe.

Now with the Track & Field events beginning more enjoyable time to watch and revel in all who are participating!

I am also pleased to see the Venues and the smooth running of the events and the security which has been provided thus far, let it continue!  Enjoy the games if that is what you like and witness more good history in the making!

World Class athletes in Rio, World Class properties in the Vail Valley!  Let me help you find yours.

Big News in the Ski Industry!!!  Vail Resorts has contracted to buy Whistler in Canada.  The Epic Pass will not include it this year unless they can figure out a way to do it before or possibly soon after the deal closes.  Lots of stock certificates and cash are getting ready to change hands.  This can’t just be another funny money deal since I live here in Vail and it’s news that affects what’s happening here, right?  Maybe I should sell out or maybe I should double down and buy another property or maybe I will probably just sit tight?  How much, if any, will it affect what happens here now or in the future?  It’s kind of a one horse town, except for the mountains and the streams and the summers and the falls when many locals hardly know that Vail Resorts exists.  For 5 months we have skiing.  For a month on either side it is pretty quiet.  Then we have the wonderful summer and fall in the rockies.  The ski mountain is trying to justify its existence with activities that help it and the local communities and retail shops and restaurants do well when the skiing stops.  That would happen without the summer ski mountain but maybe it helps some.  Gives the parents and kids another resource for a day or two.  Gives some employees a job and full health insurance coverage I think.  It’s a beautiful day in Colorado, Bob.

Hustle and bustle is the description of activity in the Vail Village this morning…The sun is shining and the skies are clear and it looks as if rain may hold off till later today, maybe completely?

Lots of vendors are setting up for the Vail Farmer’s Market (10a-330p) and displaying their goods and do they look GOOD, yum!  Produce, baked goods, prepared foods, art & much more to mention a few…

I am ready to display the goods of LOCAL REAL ESTATE up and down the Vail Valley and additional areas nearby in the Gateway RE office today till 5p. We easy to find and are located by the International Bridge across the Gore Creek and closer to the hill from Solaris.  Look up and you will see our blue window canopy/awning as we are on the second floor and easy access just up the steps.

Doesn’t matter if you’re just looking, seriously looking, or ready to sell, come on in and I’ll be happy to take a few minutes, or as long as it takes, to search current listings with you to see what is on the market and available today and prices.  I’ll help you get a feel for the lay of the land is you are not familiar with this area.


Too busy today?  You can call me @ 313.600.8330 to set up a better time to connect.

Vail Valley hiking and biking trails

This is a wonderful time to visit the Vail and Beaver Creek areas.  July and August and even September are great.  Mountain weather, shops, restaurants, activities hiking, biking, fishing, mushrooming, festivals, it’s all here, the best.

Get out of that heat you are living in for a little while.  Getting into properties to show them is sometimes difficult, but this is the best time to buy and sell except for a few months in the winter during ski season.  It’s a beautiful day in Colorado, Bob
