An official “Vail Pioneer” and an avowed “Mountain Lady” for over four decades, Jenni is a native Californian who grew up in the ski industry at Lake Tahoe. As a teen, her family migrated south to Santa Barbara. Her parents moved to Vail after she was married and it wasn’t long before she and her husband decided to settle here too and get back to the mountain life she loved as a child.
They raised their children in a safe and beautiful environment taking advantage of the world’s best skiing and enjoying favorite summertime activities.
An active lifestyle combined with diverse cultural opportunities contributed to the decision to make the area their permanent home.
Upon joining Slifer & Company Real Estate in 1987, its only office was the landmark location on Bridge Street in the heart of Vail Village. Jenni saw it become Slifer Smith & Frampton and is proud to have been a part of what is now an icon in resort and community development throughout Colorado and the west.
In 1998 Jenni had the opportunity to join the original SSF sales team at Eagle Ranch, she saw a brand new community immerge from the ground up. Looking back, she now considers herself somewhat of an expert in the area where she directly participated in listing and selling of up to 50 properties annually from condominiums, townhomes and residential lofts to homesites and single family homes throughout the successful community. She’s seen Eagle Ranch grow and mature. Hard work and dedication to her customers has earned her several “Top Producer” awards in her office and within the Slifer Smith & Frampton family.
“Now that we’re empty-nesters, life is taking new turns”, Jenni comments. “We continue to enjoy why we live here!” The Marquez Family has come full circle. With a love for the outdoors and as grandparents, they enjoy visits from family to share and pass down the mountain lifestyle to the 4th generation of Vail Pioneer Kids.
