Summit County Mountain Retreats offers a broad spectrum of management services for owners of real estate in the Keystone area. Our cost structure, marketing strategy, and client services are unique. Everything we do is built from the ground up. We do not simply copy and tweak our competitor’s systems.
When we say that we built our services from the ground up, we are not just using interesting words. It is the truth. It all started back in 2008 when we were wide-eyed and proud new owners of a Keystone condo. An ominous gray cloud was darkening our excitement, though. We could not come to terms with the fees that all the management companies in Keystone charged. A 50/50 revenue split just would not do, nor would any of the other variations out there. None of the property management services were able to give us a reasonable expectation that we would at least break even on our Keystone investment. We were not interested in owning a status symbol that costs large sums of money to maintain every year. We were interested in having a mountain home and dare we say it, also having an income stream instead of an out-go stream. Simply put–we wanted our cake and we wanted to eat it too.
Since there was not a company in Keystone that solved this problem, we did what came naturally. We combined a little Southern ingenuity, added a dash of business and real estate background, and a skepticism for the status quo. With a bit of unrealistic belief that success was inevitable, and over numerous years in the refiner’s fire, we now have a well established and solidly grounded business that truly is balanced in all key areas.
The Platinum program is chosen by the vast majority of our clients. It offers a complete suite of services including management, marketing and maintenance with the specific intention of maximizing profits. There are three levels of marketing and of maintenance, and clients can choose the level that best suits their needs.
The Gold program is designed for you to keep complete control of marketing, pricing and guest screening. Advertise how you like and rent to whom you want, at the price you want. Once you have procured a rental guest and an agreed upon price, simply turn the guest over to us and we will take it from there. This is a true pay-as-you-go and pay-for-performance program.
The Silver program is designed for homeowners who want to maintain full control of their property. If you have self-managed your property and enjoy being intimately involved in every aspect of the rental process, this is the program for you. This homeowner isn’t afraid of the guest call at midnight or coordinating repairs. This is a true pay-as-you-go and pay-for-performance program.
The Electronic Door Lock Service program is a complimentary service provided to area homeowners. For a one-time setup fee we will provide up to four keycards, reprogram existing Saflok door locks, provide cleaning cards, and basic troubleshooting for door locks via email or phone
