Hello Dear Friends and Lovers of Aspen!
We are pleased to announce that Lorrie B Aspen. Inc is back with the Aspen Buzz! As much as I love the amazing network at Compass, it is time for me to go back to my own company. All I want to do
is enjoy the Aspen lifestyle and help you do the same!

The summer season always brings great joy to my heart and this year is even more special to see activity in town. Our restaurants happily re-opened and our friends, the owners, were OVER JOYED to see us and visa versa! To add to that wonderful news, the city voted to extend dining and retail into the streets. This should create a very festive and social setting. We want to remind you that the fresh mountain air really rejuvenates the soul. So, below we have a great list for you below for fun activities.
REAL ESTATE UPDATE
We are not surprised with the huge uptick in activity in both rentals and sales. Of course, we are getting several requests from California and New York, but also Florida. I am surprised by some new listings coming out at over $3,000-$4,000 per square foot. Of course, those still tend to be right in the center of Aspen, with serious values as you go about a mile east or west where listings will still be $1,000-$1,500/sf. The 3000sf penthouse at the Dancing Bear closed a couple of weeks ago at over $6000/sf, the highest price per square foot in history.

And, barely a mile east of town, a fabulous home in the Northstar Preserve just closed for $12,500,000 at $987/sf. (CLICK HERE) . We think this was an absolute steal.

And o ne of the auction houses listed for $30,000,000 sold pre-auction just over $21,000,000 at $ 2,146.35 /sf.

If you are thinking of selling or renting, please call us NOW.
Please call us with any real estate market questions or about the statistics below.
