Summit County Mountain Retreats Philosophy & Practice

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.
