For 40 years, Kathy Cole has been one of Vail Valley's Top Real Estate Brokers and has been a Broker Associate with Coldwell Banker for 39 of those years. Her drive and ambition to help Buyers and Sellers achieve their optimum outcomes have become renowned within her circle of friends, peers, and clients. She places an emphasis on detail and getting the job done in the most effective and professional manner possible. As well, her many years in Real Estate have made her one of the most knowledgeable Brokers in all aspects of Buying and Selling property, in all price ranges, within the Vail Valley. As such, Kathy continues to be among the Top 3% of Coldwell Banker Agents Worldwide.

 

Kathy has been involved in all areas of Real Estate since first obtaining her license in 1982. She has earned top awards within the Coldwell Banker Corporation Worldwide; having received the "International President's Premier (Top 1%) Award", "International President's Elite (Top 3%) Award" and the "International President's Circle (Top 5%) Award" various times throughout her career. As well, as recently as 2014, she was the #3 Individual Broker Associate for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Colorado. She was a Broker Owner, and Managing Broker, for Coldwell Banker Timberline Real Estate in the Vail Valley before she and her Partners sold the office in 2012.  In 2014, she joined Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Colorado, being the #3 individual Broker Associate in 2014.  In 2016, she joined Coldwell Banker Mountain Properties, in their Vail office, where she continues as a Broker Associate.

She was a Senior Faculty Member for the Colorado Association of Realtors® for 22 years as well as having been instrumental in helping to develop the "Resort Committee and Resort Designation" within NAR.
