"The BEST Vail Valley broker, hands down."


Suzi with her grandsons

For Suzi Apple, one such moment occurred the first time she saw Vail. It was the summer before her senior year in college in 1973. On a whim, Suzi and her roommate left campus and headed west toward Vail, this wonderland about which they had heard so much. Hundreds of miles and two speeding tickets into their journey, the women drove over the Vail Pass and into view came a sight Suzi will never forget. Waterfalls. Lush green mountainsides. Snow-capped mountains. The rush of Gore Creek. "I was awestruck," Suzi says, "I didn't know what to expect, but I surely didn't expect anything so spectacular. At that moment, I knew I'd live in Vail for the rest of my life."

In the years since that first trek over the Vail Pass, Suzi has met many who have similar stories. It seems all who come here are touched by the spectacular natural beauty and the warm community atmosphere that permeates Vail. Everyone has a story to tell, a vision to share. And like the snow flakes that flutter down as those stories are told, no two are alike. For Suzi, the real glory lies in the fact that she has a role in helping people capture the spirit of this area.

As a real estate professional and the visionary founder of Gateway Land and Development, Suzi has the opportunity to bring Vail home to those who have been touched by its gifts. "I love what I do because I know exactly where my clients are coming from," Suzi says. "They're not looking simply to buy or sell property, like they would in a big metropolitan city. They're trying to capture the spirit and essence of Vail. It's a great joy to be able to assist them in that pursuit."

It should come as no surprise that Suzi's children, Ashley and Aubrie, are an integral part of her own Vail experience. Time spent skiing the local slopes or hiking to get a glimpse of the area's natural beauty with them re-energizes Suzi and reminders her of the special things that make life here so special. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home in the Vail area, or even if you just have questions about the highly complex local market, call Suzi Apple. She'll help you Capture The Spirit of Vail.

Suzi's unbridaled love for the unique vail lifestyle, along with her place as a respected local real estate veteran, make her especially adept at helping people buy or sell property here.

"The spirit of the Vail Valley lies not only in it's amazing natural beauty, but also in the people who call it home."

As a successful real estate professional and the proprietor of Gateway Land and Development, Suzi Apple has a stunningly unique opportunity. Take a look around the Vail Valley. Take a deep breath. Look at the spectacular natural beauty that surrounds this area. That's why Suzi loves what she does: her work enables her to help buyers and sellers find their own little piece of this mountainous paradise.

What really excites Suzi is the relaxed yet exhilarating atmosphere of the Vail Valley. Each day, it is her goal to make Gateway Land and Development a realty company that responds to the specific needs and goals of its clientele. "I don't believe in pushing our clients into some predetermined mold or forcing them onto a path of least resistance," Suzi says. "That's just not the way we do things in the Vail Valley. The first step we take here is listen. I think we can help our clients achieve their goals best when we hear what they want-what would really be a dream come true for them." That, in a nutshell, is the spirit of Vail.
