Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley.

Past Chair: Doug Landin.

Matt Blake of Ascent Sotheby’s Real Estate was chosen as the 2011 Realtor of the Year and Sarah Jardis of Central Rockies Mortgage was selected as the 2011 Affiliate Member of the Year.

Support from nearly 20 sponsors covered the costs of the event, which allowed each $20 per person ticket to become a donation to The Hope Chest, which helps those in the real estate community as well as in the Vail Valley who are in need of financial assistance.

“As a result of the efforts of the many talented people that have fulfilled this position before me, our Board has been well-positioned as a true cutting edge organization at the top of its class nationwide” said Chair Matt Blake. “We have a very talented and dedicated membership and a supportive staff who continues to be the backbone of our organization. I am looking forward to the continued success of the Vail Board of REALTORS® in the upcoming year.”
