About Catherine

During Cathy's 43 years selling luxury mountain resort properties, she has consistently remained one of the nation’s top producers. Cathy’s sales in 2023 exceeded $136 million making her the #1 Top Producer for the entire Vail Valley as well as Top Producer at Slifer Smith & Frampton for the thirteenth year in a row. Slifer Smith & Frampton is the largest and most successful real estate brokerage in Eagle County.

Cathy started her life in the mountains in 1974, where she headed to Copper Mountain Resort. Cathy is originally from New Jersey, where she was raised on a dairy farm. In 1980, Cathy joined Keystone Real Estate in 1980 in Keystone Resort and quickly became the company’s top producer. In 1986, she moved to Beaver Creek Resort and began selling with Vail Associates Real Estate, then with Slifer Smith & Frampton, and stayed on after the 1994 merger of the two. Following the merger, Cathy was appointed Branch Broker of SSF’s Park Hyatt Office. During her four years in that position, she was one of SSF’s top producers and the listing broker for major Beaver Creek developments. In 1998, Cathy relocated to SSF’s Bachelor Gulch office, where she became the listing broker for Bear Paw, Settler’s Lodge, Firelight, and the Horizon Pass Townhomes. These properties represent a major portion of Bachelor Gulch Village’s multi-family developments, a total of 90 residences. Since moving to the Bachelor Gulch Sales office (located in The Ritz-Carlton® Hotel), Cathy has had the distinction of being the Bachelor Gulch office’s top producer for 25 years. She is also the Branch Broker of the Bachelor Gulch office. Her sales record of a cumulative total of more than $3 billion (over $2.9 billion in just the past 16 years), without her previous 30 years of sales noted, makes Cathy one of the top agents in the entire country.

 Cathy is known for high-end residential listings and sales and was the listing and selling agent for many of the highest priced homes ever sold in the history of Beaver Creek Resort, Bachelor Gulch Village, and Vail. Cathy specializes in not only the high-end luxury market but is equally proficient in condominium sales having been the original listing agent for East West Partners and many of their projects. She now handles the listings and sales of many of these re-sale properties. Her sales continue to thrive, which Cathy attributes to working harder and smarter in a tough market and being very knowledgeable about the local market and inventory. Cathy prides herself on maintaining strong relationships with clients and fellow brokers alike, allowing her to often have advanced notice and information on properties before they go active in the MLS which certainly gives her buyers an advantage in this low inventory market.

 Cathy lives with her husband, Russ, at their residence at the Horizon Pass Townhomes in gorgeous Bachelor Gulch Village. Cathy has resided within the resort since 2000. She is a Board Member of the Bachelor Gulch Residents’ Association. Her outside interests include traveling, golf with a membership at Eagle Springs Golf Club as well as the Frost Creek Golf Club, gardening and flying in their plane for quick get-always as well as skiing if the weather is nice. Her main enjoyment, other than the activities with Russ and her daughter Lindsay and her family, is the opportunity to sell real estate in the best place in the world, meet wonderful people and have friends from all walks of life.
