Scott Marino grew up in southern California, studied communication at Cal Poly Tech and traveled the world playing rugby.  It’s the rugby that got him to Vail in 1997 and this is where he stayed. “After spending one summer in this beautiful valley I knew I was here for life”.  Scott joined the Slifer Smith and Frampton Eagle office in 2008.  “SSF’s reputation, branding, marketing, resources and support are what set us apart from the rest”.

Kari Marino would say she is a Colorado native but for a few years spent in Minnesota.  After growing up in Littleton and attending Colorado State University it was time to get to the mountains for good.  “This is where I belong; it’s where all the fun is! My family would spend every weekend skiing Vail and now I am fortunate enough to call this valley home”  Kari’s roll with the company started in 2011 as an office admin then, Scott convinced her to become licensed and his assistant.

The team of Scott and his wife Kari love bringing up their two children in Eagle Ranch with all the fantastic activities available.  The family’s free time is spent enjoying the outdoors; skiing, biking, camping, hiking or just playing around.  “We are blessed to be able to raise our family in this great community.”

"I've known Scott a good while, so when it came time to sell my place it was a no brainer to call him and Kari. No nonsense in a fun way,honest,earnest and hard working, they did stuff I wouldn't have expected from a realtor . I couldn't be around, and they found the workmen and took care of the details large and small to get the place in great shape for the new owners.When our first deal fell thru the week it was supposed to close(buyers' loan failed), they didn't break stride but found the right customer. they walked me through the process making it easy to get it all done."

"Scott and Kari represented us as the seller's broker. They have everything you want in real estate representatives: great work ethic, smart, thoughtful, excellent communication, and a super level of experience!"


"Scott was incredibly helpful in us finding the right home for us. I would wholeheartedly recommend him and Kari. We love our new home. When we saw the home we wanted, they helped make the deal happen."


"Scott and Kari are a great team. Scott is very knowledgeable about the area, and shared resources for research. We couldn't be happier with our purchase in Frost Creek and can't wait to build."


"Scott & Kari were so helpful in finding us a home in the area we wanted to live. They helped us get to know the neighborhood and all it had to offer. They were accessible and quick to respond to emails, texts, and phone calls. I would definitely work with them again and/or refer friends or family members to them."


"Scott wowed us with his rapid communication, responses to any emails or texts. He kept us informed, was very professional and you got a sense that he was always focused on the ball. It was a pleasure working with him and I would urge anyone contemplating buying or seeeling their home to call Scott. Ann and David Curtis"

"Scott and Kari truly went over the top for us in the sale and purchase of our new home. We were reliant on their knowledge and expertise as they walked us through all of the steps. We could not be happier in our new home- and we truly owe it all to them. We would recommend them to everyone - at any price point - and guarantee that they will be able to successfully guide you through the process."


"Scott and Kari represented us very well in the sale of our home. They helped us price the house so it would sell and not malinger on the market. The buyer's appraisal showed that Scott did indeed know the market, and that the house was priced correctly. I also appreciated their responsiveness to phone calls and emails. They responded within minutes, not hours. When there was a glitch, Scott was able to untangle it with the greatest of ease. It was a pleasure to work with these two."


"Scott and Kari provide a very comfortable home-buying experience. They get to know you, and they are very good at applying that knowledge in selecting homes to view. Between insights into the features and nuances of the homes and a deep familiarity with the region they serve , Scott and Kari provide the information you need to make a confident decision in selecting a home. They will follow-up with plenty of skill in dealing with other brokers and getting you through a smooth closing."


"As first time home buyers, we really needed an agent who could guide us through the process and educate us along the way. Scott was nothing short of this! He knew everything about the local area- developments, schools, parks, etc. He's actually the reason we got this particular house!

When we all went to see the houses on OUR list, he threw in a surprise house at the end, which we had no initial interest in... And it ended up being our dream home that we now happily reside in! He really knows the market and how to help find the perfect house for your needs.

Lastly, he was always available to explain anything about the contracts (or anything, really) you may have questions about. I learned so much through the process with the Marinos, and would recommend them to everyone."


"Scott and Kari made the home buying process absolutely painless! As first time home buyers we needed their knowledge and guidance on a continual basis; they walked us through every step and made sure we were informed and comfortable with every decision we made.

I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. It doesn't matter your price point or your real estate knowledge they will make the process as smooth and painless as possible!!"


"Scott and Kari went above and beyond in the sale and purchase process for us. They were responsive, friendly, professional, and always ready to advocate for us! They listened to our concerns and our wish list and were able to transition us to a great new home. Thank you Scott and Kari!"


"Scott and Kari worked tirelessly to market my property, schedule viewings, and work with other realtors to assure a successful sale. The marketing materials they developed were creative (use of a drone to photograph from above), their advice was good, and they adjusted to my specific criteria."


"Scott has been a great realtor. We've worked with him for close to 9 months. He has been honest, hard-working, and always accessible. We will definitely recommend him to our neighbors and friends!"

"Scott and Kari made purchasing a house from another state very easy. Both of them went above and beyond helping us with every aspect of our home search and beyond."


"Scott was extremely helpful and supportive in assisting us during the purchase of a home for my parents. He had to deal with 2 families, one local and one 1000 miles away, on the buying side of the purchase process and he handled it with professionalism and kindness. In the end, I think all parties, including the sellers, were thankful to have Scott as the leading agent for the transaction."


"Scott helped us buy and then a few years later sell our duplex. During both experiences he was great. His knowledge of Eagle and Gypsum was very good, with helpfull info on neighboorhoods and schools. He is well connected to the market in the valley. Very friendly and helpfull whenever we had questions or needed to get ahold of him."


"We used Scott as a buyer advisor. He was the seller's realtor. We felt that Scott us as much as the seller. He was available for visitations to the home we eventually purchased on several occations, he handled all of the details of showing and even the cleaning process after the sale was pending.

We would highly recommend Scott as your realtor for either side of the negotiations. He is also a really nice guy!"


"We met Scott when moving to Eagle from a friend.
He was one of the best realtors we have used. He was very connected with our buying process and bent over backwards for us. Thanks Scott :-)"


"Scott is an expert at the market in his region. He listens to the customers needs and works hard to accommodate them. Scott assisted my wife and I through selling a property and purchasing a new home. In doing so he made it possible for us to close on one property and bargain in time for us to make the move. He is quick to respond to e-mails, calls, and texts. We were very satisfied with his professional approach to a complicated market."


"Scott both worked with us to buy a home and eventually sell it. He is great to work with, has a real knowledge of the area (familiar with local businesses and market prices), and was always timely. Scott kept us constantly updated on were things were at on selling our home, and was always quick to let us know about new homes on the market. Negotiations went very smoothly and he was quick on his feet to let us know his opinion. Overall, a great Realtor to work with."
