About Me

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.

"My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience working with Jay to find our new home! Jay is very professional and very friendly. He is very patient and understanding as to what we were looking for and helped us to narrow down and look at some excellent options. He was very accommodating with our schedule and any last minute adjustments we needed to make, as well as giving us guidance with all the steps we needed to take once we found our home. He truly helped to point us in all the right directions! We love our new home and highly recommend Jay for your real estate needs!"

"Jay was amazing - very helpful and quick to respond on everything. He knows the area very well and can assist you in finding your perfect home. In our search we were looking for a condo to rent and use for some personal use. Jay helped us find the perfect location that would provide plenty of revenue but still meet our needs."
