Since teaming up over 16 years ago, Steve and Hillary McSpadden have helped over 1,000 individuals, couples, and families realize their dreams of living in the mountains either part-time or full-time. The majority of their business has come from repeat customers and referrals to which the McSpadden’s credit their responsive service and infectious passion for the Vail lifestyle.
Steve has resided in the Vail Valley for over 40 years. Launching his real estate career in 1980, he then operated a successful real estate and property management company for 20 years. Steve’s long-standing relationships and abundant knowledge of the Vail Valley and its history make him a tremendous resource to his clients. In her own right, Hillary has contributed to the wide success of two real estate companies, growing one of them from $10 million per year in sales to over $100 million as its Managing Broker. Her negotiating skills and detailed expertise with contracts are two of her specific skills that balance and compliment Steve’s.
As the principle listing brokers on the Landmark Residences, a luxury development in Lionshead Village, the McSpadden’s successfully marketed and sold over $30 million of discretionary real estate during the toughest economic period in Vail’s history. They were resilient and creative in their efforts to preserve the value of the prominent slope-side property. That approach played a part in Hillary being selected to the competitively chosen team of listing agents for The Lion, Vail’s only new luxury development. In their first 3 months on the team they closed nearly $40 million in residential condominiums at the exclusive property.
Both collegiate athletes, Steve ski raced at the University of Colorado and Hillary played Division I tennis. Originally from southern California, Hillary moved to the Vail area in 1991 with a degree in International Business from the University of San Diego and an MBA from the University of Denver.
Steve and Hillary’s combined experience and business savvy creates a dynamic partnership which offers a range of services that can only be achieved with their team approach. In addition to performing at the highest level in real estate sales, the McSpadden Team is backed by the success and marketing reach of Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, the largest producing real estate company in the Vail Valley with nearly 50% market share.
