Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate expands Eagle Ranch office, adds brokers
EAGLE — Kim Bradley, branch manager of Slifer Smith & Frampton’s Eagle Ranch office, recently announced that the office has expanded, both in terms of physical size as well as personnel, with five brokers added to the team there.
“We were due for an office remodel, but we also realized that our space was maxed out with our eight brokers,” Bradley said. “Development is booming in Eagle and Gypsum and when we started discussing how we were going to serve potential clients, we decided that we needed to expand our space.”
The expansion created 10 additional offices and provides an opportunity to expand the team again in the future.
Five new brokers
The five new brokers to join the Eagle Ranch office are Jackie Devens, Natalie Murray, Aaron Rabins, Fernando Pages Ruiz and Kyle Stoveken.
Devens moved to Vail in the fall of 2008 “for a ski season,” but quickly knew that she would be staying. She began her career with Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate in the summer of 2011 as support staff in the Solaris Plazaoffice. Seven years later, she is now a licensed broker in the Eagle Ranch office.
Broker Associate Murray has more than five years of real estate experience and 15 years of management experience, most recently working with Summit Real Estate in Dillon, Colorado as the Operations Manager. Murray grew up in Steamboat Springs and is a fourth-generation Colorado native.
Originally from San Clemente, California, Rabins moved to the Vail Valley shortly after receiving his bachelor’s degree from the University of Denver to pursue his real estate career. Rabins began working for Slifer Smith & Frampton as an office coordinator in Bachelor Gulch and he quickly became a broker with Team K2, joining Bradley and Kelly Moser in the Eagle Office.
For nearly 30 years, Ruiz has been engaged in real estate sales and design in New York, California and now Colorado. A published author and contributor to national shelter magazines, Ruiz’ expertise in residential development and sales has made him a favorite speaker at architectural and real estate conferences.
Stoveken joined the Eagle team after working his way through the ranks at Slifer Smith & Frampton, first as an office coordinator and most recently as a licensed assistant to Molly Griffin and the Highlands at Beaver Creek team. In addition to assisting Griffin with general real estate, the two worked together to sell 11 of the 16 Lofts at Brookside Park Signature Lofts prior to construction.
“This area (Eagle) is such a community and as brokers, we want to work in a strong neighborhood,” Bradley said. “That, and the culture, is what’s attracting brokers to our office. We love being a part of Eagle and, as a team, we’re focused on giving back to the community.”

The valley’s commercial and residential property markets are similar in some ways — availability is tight and nothing is what you’d call “cheap.”
