Born and raised in Minnesota Jay moved to the Vail Valley in 2008 after falling in love with the mountains during childhood ski trips. Originally intended to be “only one ski season” he quickly realized he loves the outdoor adventures 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 friends, family and clients. When not working on finding his clients the perfect home or playing in the mountains, he can be found spending time with his wife Kara and their dog Kirby.
Jay originally worked in the hospitality industry after college but wanted to apply his customer service background to real estate in the Vail Valley. By demonstrating his ability to bring top tier customer service and communication to Slifer Smith & Frampton he has made his mark quickly in the business. Jay continues to stay up to date with the best ways to market real estate, which is becoming more focused on online marketing and prospecting. Additionally, his work ethic, ability to adapt to market and industry changes, and focus on customer relationships has contributed to his success.
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, friends and clients from around the world.
