Born and raised in Minnesota, Jay moved to the Vail Valley in 2008 after falling in love with skiing in the Colorado mountains during childhood ski trips. Originally intending to be in the Valley “only one ski season”, he quickly realized his love for the outdoor adventures that the area has to offer and decided to make it his permanent home. Jay takes advantage of the mountain lifestyle by skiing, biking, camping, hiking, and golfing with his family, friends, and the many visitors coming to the area.
After graduating college, Jay worked in the hospitality industry but wanted to apply his customer service background to real estate in the Vail Valley. By demonstrating his ability to bring top tier service and effective communication to Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, he has made his mark quickly in the business. Jay continues to stay up to date with the best ways to market his client’s homes, which is trending towards digital marketing and prospecting.
Jay is truly grateful to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world and for the ability to share that love with many guests and visitors from around the world.

"Jay made buying my first home more fun and much easier than I ever expected! He was fun to work with and made the whole experience less intimidating that I had originally thought it to be. His knowledge and professionalism helped me find my perfect first home! Thank you, Jay!"
