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!

Here at Gateway I am committed to providing you with the quality and service you need and expect from a Real Estate Professional no matter what the season. So whether you are looking to purchase or wanting to or needing to market your existing property I’ll be able to help you.  Come on in and I will share how I can help & serve with your current or future Real Estate needs.

Can’t make it in, simply call me @ 313.600.8330 and we can start there.

Until then, enjoy the colors and as we all know soon the snow will be flying!  Hope to see you on the hills soon!

Nice day in Eagle County-Vail to get some exercise, but I am in the office, obviously blogging.  A Blue Bird Day.  Golf, biking, fishing Gore Creek or the Eagle River and hiking and snow shoeing would be high on the list.  2 game 7’s and 1 game 1 in the NBA and golf in New Orleans and ice hockey are available for TV people.  Forget the talk shows, I need a break from politics.  I’ll get some of the sports action in the office where we have a TV.  Yes, I know I should stay busy with real estate and would more if you would visit so we could discuss selling your property here or buying a property here or just finding out what it is worth. 

The Vail Daily has a nice article beginning on the 1st page about the busy action of March sales with one of our Gateway Real Estate pros Robert Schilling being prominently quoted numerous times.  When he is not skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer, he is hard core real estate the rest of the time.  I am a little more laid back.  Give either of us a call or Don Galgan or Betty Guffey, a few of the other agents in the Vail office a call.  Don and I were in kindergarten together and reacquainted after that as campers in Cheley Camps many years ago.  Betty Guffey is a good gal from Dallas. 

Arrowhead

Check out the website (Gatewaytovail.com) to see all the agents working for Gateway here in the Vail and the Edwards offices.  Suzie Apple, our owner/Broker, is a top broker in the Valley and helped get Arrowhead off the ground.  The stories she can tell are very interesting about numerous subjects.  When I show Arrowhead (aka County Club of the Rockes) I would not think of not having her along if possible.  I hope you have a good day.  It’s a beautiful day in Colorado, Bob

Many come to the Vail Valley hoping to get a glimpse of the extraordinary wildlife that populates our land. But it is rare to find a mountain retreat where you can sit before your cozy fireplace and have a parade of animals come to you! But 59 Jacksons Path at the Summit in Cordillera is such a place!

vailcoreGATEWAYsOCHI

Today the “Road to Sochi” began right here in Vail Village outside of my Gateway Land & Development office! As the tents started to go up, the flow of foot traffic began to slow down with curiosity. I, myself, found it irresistible to go and explore.

What I discovered were tents that individually captured different Olympic Sports. For example, there is a hockey net set up with a plastic construct that had wheels attached to lock your feet into. That way children (and adults) can get a feel for playing hockey. There are simulator’s for speed skiing and finally my favorite to watch and what looked to be the most fun the Luge. The Luge was especially fun because with each participator the crowd was left to wonder how many would come to a stop. There was but one young man that seems responsible for the safety landing of the Luge participants.

Right in the center of these events are many of Vail’s finest properties. Two that are available right now are Robert Schilling’s (contact: robfromvail@gmail.com) 1) Vail Core #4 – this is a studio plus loft (whole ownership) for $610,000 and 2) One Willow Bridge (Fractional) with stunning finishes, new amenities, and 24 hour concierge service for $405,000 for 7 weeks/year.
