About Ed

Previously a school teacher in my home state of Indiana, I moved to the Vail Valley in 1975 to be the assistant principal of Battle Mountain High School and then two years later became the principal of Minturn Middle School. I began my Real Estate career in the fall of 1978, and a year after being hired by Vail Associates Real Estate (VARE) in January, 1980 I was appointed the Managing Broker of VARE in 1981. By 1982 Beaver Creek Resort was open and I resumed my career in sales and have been based out of both Beaver Creek and Bachelor Gulch Village ever since. I have been the Sales Manager of eight (8) condominium neighborhoods in Beaver Creek as well as the Sales Manager for the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch Penthouses and Residential Suites. In January, 2016, I teamed with Brent Rimel, Broker Associate and enjoy the teamwork in marketing and sales. I find great joy in assisting people find their ideal vacation retreat or home of their dreams in a place that is near and dear to my heart. With a focus on my clients and their needs, I am lucky to have become dear friends many of them over the years.

Having raised my daughters in the Vail Valley, I am very fortunate to have made the decision to move west in 1975 to make Eagle County our home. I am now blessed to be able to spend time with my three beautiful grandchildren and enjoy riding my horses in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
