Born in Hawaii, I have lived in Vail Colorado since 1990 and have been a Realtor with Brandess-Cadmus Real Estate since 1996.  I sell mostly residential real estate but have negotiated commercial real estate in the past.  I am a "people person" and enjoy sales; it's been my business for 24 years!

"Rene helped us sell our condo successfully achieving a record high $/sq ft for the area. Rene was one of the few agents that was willing to price and market the property based on the positive attributes instead of relying solely on historical prices. We wouldn't say that the marketing materials were top notch. You would probably get a better package from a larger agency. We pushed for improvements in photography and web presence which never materialized, although Rene did quite a bit of advertising for us. When interviewing Rene, we were struck by the frequency she was involved in helping clients with inspections, repairs, etc. Not being local, we thought this would help us, but she was not very forthcoming with her assistance in our case. Perhaps, we should have asked her directly when we needed help, so we recommend that. A few weeks into the process we received a very low offer. Rene stayed with it and basically muscled the price back up into an acceptable range. She showed real determination and talent in that negotiation. On the downside, she started to pull back from marketing the property aggressively. There were several problems with the offer and a very long close. Fortunately it did close, but more aggressive marketing might have protected us better and maybe yielded a better result as well, considering a unit in the same building sold afterward for slightly more.

"We used Rene close to 10 years ago to buy then sell our first Vail property. We didn't hesitate to give her a call once we were ready to look for a second home in the Vail area. She was great to work with at a long distance and in person. She is very knowledgeable with the Vail/Beaver Creek real estate market and lead us to the perfect home. Anyone would be in great hands with Rene as their broker!"

"We have used Rene twice when buying real estate & were thrilled with our purchases both times. Rene knows the market quite well & did a great job listening to what WE were looking for in a home, which is often NOT the case when utilizing agents. She also was a selling agent for us once, when we sold a condo, & was successful in getting one of the higher prices for a condo within the complex. Rene is ethical, knowledgeable, happy & energetic...perfect combo of personality traits for a realtor!"
