Greetings Friends!
August is always a pleasure because the long, hectic days of July are finished with too many great events and parties!!! Now, the town starts to quiet down as families take the kids back to school.

Yesterday I bought my first box of Colorado's finest fruit- the Palisade Peach- and keep them in my wine cellar. See below for information on the Palisade Peach Festival next weekend. The produce at our Aspen Saturday Farmer Market is delicious with the peaches, corn, tomatoes, and plums!

Our weather remains gorgeous through September so take advantage of all the activities left this time of year!

The market is definitely moving but about 50% less closings on condominiums than last year at this time. The number of single family homes is about even - but look at difference in dollar volume.

Sellers got very aggressive early this summer at prices immensely higher than last year with many over $3500-$5500 per SF. Now, comes the fun for a Buyer. I just closed on a beautiful home for $12,000,000, about $2700 per SF in the West End that was on the market since last winter listed for $13,500,000. There is definitely Buyer resistance so Brokers are just starting to lower prices on product Sellers actually want to sell and not just “test” the market.  

We do get calls often for great, unlisted products. I brought on Jackie Friedman to help with those unlisted requests. She manages 84 amazing properties and has been able to pull incredible unlisted products for “one time showings.” This type of product generally sells for" stupid" dollar amounts.
Boutique hotel with 68 rooms at Main and Garmisch in Aspen to open in December
“MOLLIE is a boutique, authentic experience that we can’t wait to share with Aspen,” said Michael Brown, co-owner of HayMax Capital. The hotel’s namesake is inspired by the Mollie Gibson, a local figure known for her restless enthusiasm for the outdoors and ability to bring people together, the company said, adding, “The hotel pays homage to her significant contributions to Aspen’s early social, artistic and sporting fabric.” CLICK HERE
