What goods or services do you provide? High Life Properties Real Estate is a boutique personal service company located in Edwards. We specialize in real estate sales and listings in Vail, Beaver Creek and Bachelor Gulch as well as more localized neighborhoods from East Vail to Gypsum. We also offer services in luxury vacation rentals.

Our brokers have lived and worked in the Vail Valley for many years and together have accumulated more than 30 years of experience in real estate. We pride ourselves in providing an extremely personal approach with exceptional customer service. Whether it is your dream home, a real estate investment or vacation rental you are interested in, our team is here to help guide you through the process.

What’s new or exciting at your place? Just recently we brought on a new partner, C. Daniel Estrada. Daniel has been with us from the beginning and we are excited to have his energy and experience added to the management team. We also just moved into a new office space where the old Bookworm used to be, right across from the Gore Range Brewery. Drop by and say “hi.”

What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from your competition? High Life Properties began with a simple idea: Incorporate numerous years of high-level customer service in the ski industry and transfer that high quality into the real-estate world and its clientele. As a result, we assembled a group of hard-working, dependable and enthusiastic professionals and built a team of brokers dedicated to serving the needs of every customer.

What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? What can your customers expect from you? Since our inception, we’ve had tremendous success working with buyers and sellers in both the high end luxury and local markets around the Vail Valley. Whether a first time buyer or long time investor, we pride ourselves on understanding each customer as an individual while providing our expertise to each specific cause. Achieving your goal is our ambition and nothing else provides us more satisfaction than helping you accomplish your real estate endeavors.

Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: We are all long-time locals. Most of us are avid skiers, some are golfers and fly fishermen, hunters and ranchers, coming from both large families and small. We came here to live because we saw the beauty but we’ve chosen to stay because we recognize the value. There is no doubt we appreciate the quality of life this area has to offer but we specialize in real estate because we believe in the product. Having almost every amenity possible for both summer and winter is a hard feat to manage, but the Vail Valley almost has it all. Location is everything and we believe this area is one of the best locations in the world.

What is the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? When we moved into the old Bookworm space on the ground floor in Edwards we were excited to see what walk-in business we might get. However each time we had a walk-in and the excitement grew, the question was always, “Where did the Bookworm go?” I think in the first year, we were here we could have sold more books than real estate.
