Originally from Bloomington, Minnesota David moved to the Vail Valley in 1991 after receiving his bachelors degree from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA. Shortly after arriving in Vail, David met his wife Jennifer and in 1992 they were married.

After three ski seasons, they moved to Boulder so that David could pursue his MBA at the University of Colorado. It was this pursuit that then took them to Florida where David was a Stock Broker for Paine Webber for 2 years while completing his MBA. He received a 4.0 GPA with a Masters degree in Finance and Marketing and was soon offered a job by Rod Slifer back in Vail. Something was always calling them back to Vail so David and Jennifer moved back and he began working in Arrowhead in December 1995.

His determination and hard work paid off in just his first year as David was named Rookie of the Year for Slifer Smith & Frampton in 1997. In 2005, David prestigiously ranked "Top 15 Realtors of Slifer, Smith & Frampton" and in 2006 he was asked to take the position of Branch Broker for the Arrowhead office. David and Jennifer have two wonderful girls Charlotte and Adaline and reside in Squaw Creek ranch. When he is not actively working, David enjoys spending time with his family, skiing, golfing, biking and snowmobiling.

"Their knowledge of the marketplace is exceptional. Developed a great understanding of what we were, and were not, looking for. Time spent with Anna was always productive and enlightening."


"In February, 2011, we approached Anna Menz about purchasing a larger townhome we knew was on the market in Bachelor Gulch. She showed us the current market pricing and suggested a fair offer price below the market listing. She helped us with the negotiations, and knew when it was time to stand firm with our offer. After we completed the purchase, we immediately listed our existing Townhome with Anna. She helped us come up with a fair listing price suitable for the current real estate market. Then following Anna's advice, we painted an accent wall to a more neutral color and submitted pictures of the unit to her. She posted the unit online and we had an offer we could accept within a week! Anna's knowledge of the Beaver Creek market, her attention to details, and quick response are outstanding. As a follow-up, Anna hooked us up with an excellent contractor to do some major re-modeling of our new Townhome. We couldn't be happier with the outcome."


"Very pleased with Anna's ability to negotiate all aspects of buying and selling property including her follow-up and continued support on getting to know the community and making connections with both other residents and service providers. She provides an ongoing and incredibly personalized service to her clients."


"Anna and David have working with us for a number of years as look to transition from vacation ownership to full time home. They have kept us fully abreast of market changes, opportunities and upcoming events that may be of interest to us. A great team and fun to be with!"


"Have purchased several properties over the years my wife and i found Anna Menz to be the first agent that cared about what was best for us more than the sale. Guidance was thoughtful, absent pressure, and fully responsive. While other agents tend to disappear after the closing, Anna has become and remains a good friend and source of continuing information on our vacation home investment which we adore."


"We purchased a house with David's help in December of 2012. David showed us several to choose from that fulfilled all our criteria, and then worked a trade that kept us from being the owners of two Colorado houses at the same time. We could not have asked for a better experience in purchasing our house.

"Anna Menz is a real pro. She is an honest, earnest, hard working realtor that will always have your best interests in mind. She has built a strong reputation in the Vail Valley and I have referred her to family members and friends."


"David sold two homes for me at high prices when the market in the Vail Valley was soft. He told us what we needed to do to the house, where to price it and what price to expect. Both deals came in almost exactly where he told us they would. I would highly recommend contacting him if you are planning to sell your home."
