About Bob


Prior to joining Rod Slifer in 1983 as a real estate broker, Bob spent 14 years with Vail Associates as a ski instructor, supervisor, administrative director and, ultimately, Ski School Director for Beaver Creek from 1980 through 1982. Bob also boasts to being one of Vail Associates' first real estate agents when its real estate section was formed in 1971.


Born and raised in Princeton, New Jersey, Bob attended the Lawrenceville School, graduating in 1960, and graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont in 1965 with a degree in Sociology and Ice Hockey.

Community Service

After graduation from college, Bob moved to Montana where, amongst other transient opportunities, he learned the art of auctioneering. He vowed that he would only use it for charitable purposes and, as a result, is well known in the community as a master of ceremonies and auctioneer for almost all live auctions.

Bob also sings with the Vail Community Chorale and the Chamerata Choral.

One of Bob's pet projects is the Eagle River Scholarship Fund for which he acts as Executive Director, board member and member of the interview committee.


Bob loves the Vail Valley, and lives with Patty, his wife of 45 years. Home is a watering hole for their son, Erik, an Orthopedic Surgeon with Vail Summit Orthopaedics, and for their daughter Heather, a broker who has been working with Bob as his partner and assistant for the past sixteen years.
