Dear Clients and Friends,
I wanted to reach out during this tenuous time with an on-the-ground update from the Roaring Fork Valley.
While the Aspen Valley has not been immune to COVID-19 (our community has been affected with closures of all four ski resorts, schools, restaurants, theatres, retail stores and most public spaces), there is also an upside to being in our remote mountain paradise: the outdoors remains open. Locals continue to get plenty of fresh air and Vitamin D—the best medicine there is. We continue to play outside with recommended distances. People continue to “earn their turns,” skinning up the mountain and skiing down (now without restricted hours and with our dogs). We are hiking up Smuggler, mountain and rode biking. We are taking long walks, and spending time with our loved ones. As for me, I am hanging out at Dopkin Ranch where I am riding my beautiful horses and walking our new Bernice Mountain Dog and loving that four-legged special time.
We are also seeing the benefits of our small town, close-knit community, helping our friends, neighbors and people in need. Please email me at [email protected] to keep in touch, say hi and let me know how you are .
A few updates on events, Music Festival is now changed to July 13th start date to August 19th. The Food and Wine is cancelled and so is the Ideas Festival, what is still on is the beautiful Rocky Mountain Summer. So hopefully travel bans will be released and you can come to the most beautiful place I know for a Rocky Mountain Fix. If so, please let me know and hopefully stop by the ranch to see or ride my fabulous new Icelandic Horses and say hi. Of course, if you want to shop for Real Estate, I’d love to go shopping with you!
To keep you up with the market in anticipation of better times on the horizon, I am including some of my listings for sale and rent as well as some of my sold properties. I am actively involved in keeping current with the market and If it is of interest to you I am fully equipped to assist you in selling your property, if you are thinking that would be the right move for you and finding excellent buys if that sounds enticing. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you in Aspen in better times.
Wishing you good health.
