Like so many others here in the beautiful Vail Valley, Tisa never thought she would move permanently to Vail. Originally a Washington DC native, Tisa fell in love with the Colorado Mountains and its lifestyle when she first arrived in Vail in 1979. Planning to stay for a season to learn to ski, she never left and has made it her home. In 1989, Tisa earned her real estate license. Working first at Cordillera, she joined Vail Associates Real Estate in Beaver Creek in 1992. Following the merger of Vail Associates Real Estate with Slifer Smith & Frampton in 1994, Tisa stayed on and later became Branch Broker of the St James Place office in Beaver Creek.  She maintained that position for 7 years and was recognized as a top producer. Tisa has the insight, experience and knowledge to professionally assist her clients. Tisa has closed over 100 million dollars in real estate over the years and continues to receive high praise from buyers and sellers with whom she works.  Specializing in vacation homeowners, Tisa works diligently to insure the needs of Buyers and Sellers are fulfilled. Equally proficient in fractional properties and full ownership homes and condominiums, Tisa attributes her continued success to her ethics, continuing education, insight and use of technology.  Her efforts have paid off with both buyers and sellers who routinely refer their friends and family.

Tisa enjoys time off traveling, hiking and spending time with her three adult sons and granddaughters. Ryan lives in Avon and is the proud father of daughter Tatum born in 2012, Alex is an attorney living with his wife Laura and daughter Ava in Oregon, and Trevor is a broker in downtown Denver.
