When my wife and I were interested in Condos in the Vail/Beaver Creek area, we were reticent of 'cold calling' a realtor we didn't know so we did some asking around. Chadd's name came up through a trusted business owner here in Boulder. Within a couple of days he was showing us properties and we have never looked back. Not only did he have integrity in all possible ways, he was very easy going and made us feel comfortable throughout the process . The biggest standout in the experience with him was he actually talked us out of a more expensive property (he would have made more money!). Not only was he correct in his insights - we are now in a dream home that has exceeded every expectation.
He didn't just print out a bunch of MLS listings and drive us around. He knows the area like the back of his hand and walked us through so many other considerations regarding location, HOA, management rules, cost/benefit of renting out after purchase, what to look for, etc.. Our budget was modest for the area, but he always treated us as though we were purchasing a 10 million dollar home - no exaggeration. Chadd is one of those rare individuals that one would be lucky to have on your side. If we ever decide to sell (not likely!), guess who we will be calling…
Thank you for completing the recent sale of our property at Vail Mountain Lodge. In 45 years of real estate transactions, it was the easiest and smoothest transaction in which I have been involved. You are professional, easy to work with and a first class guy.
We have enjoyed our relationship with you since we first met over 15 years ago when we acquired the Vail Mountain Lodge property. Our kids have all gotten to know you. They have enjoyed walking and playing with your dog. We have become friends over these 15 years.
A year or two ago you approached me about a prospective purchaser for our property. I indicated what our desired selling price was. You never questioned our asking price nor did you try to convince us to lower it. Not once did you approach us with a lower offer. When you secured the right buyer at the right price you contacted me and we completed the transaction in less than six weeks. To me, that is the work of a first class real estate professional.
Chadd, thank you for your hard work and for your friendship. We appreciate both.

In my many years of buying and selling homes, and there have been many, I have never dealt with anyone who was more responsive, knew the Vail/Beaver Creek market like no other and has been a professional businessman in every way.
He had our Snow Cloud condo listed faster than I thought possible, said he would sell it quick, and we had an acceptable offer the first day!!
He took care of every aspect of the sale and I still am in awe.
We are now in contract with a home in the Avon area with Chadd and he continues to contact me almost daily and goes above and beyond any realtor I have ever dealt with.
If you are selling and want results, I would highly recommend him. If you are looking for that perfect mountain home, I would highly recommend him!!
I would even be glad to give my number if anyone has any questions!
