Doug Petersen

As a realtor and builder/developer for many years, I have developed a unique and easy approach to looking at new home construction and resale homes as well. With over 40 years as a an entrepreneur and business owner there are few questions in the construction business that I have not been asked. I am happy to pass along this experience and share my insight when looking for an existing home, or considering buying or building a new one. 

For anyone considering buying or selling a home which is valued under the current loan amount, I can help as well. I have had experience in helping buyers, sellers and lenders structure deals that allow a home to be transferred and everyone comes out with a deal that works for them. Working on short sale properties can be frustrating and time consuming. Let me assist in cutting through the red tape to accomplish your goals in making a deal happen.

Do not hesitate to call or email me any time. Let's meet to see what I can do to help you in today's housing market. It is certainly one with unusual challenges and opportunities. 

Allow Us To Help

As a Broker Associate with Slifer, Smith and Frampton Real Estate with over 24 years experience in the real estate business, I enjoy working with both buyers and sellers. As a broker with many years as a builder/developer I am well suited to assist home buyers or sellers with advice and knowledge of the home you are considering for purchase or sale.

Why I Am in Vail and The Eagle River Valley

Since moving to Colorado in 1972, I have spent a great deal of time in the mountains of Colorado. I have done business in many parts of the state over the years, both in the mountains and along the Front Range–from Denver through Northern Colorado. My homebuilding has taken me from Pagosa Springs to close to the Wyoming border, including building many homes and developing subdivisions in Larimer and Boulder county, among others.

As I phased out of the homebuilding business over the past few years, it has allowed me to become more engaged with my customers and clients who seek help buying or selling. I have wanted to move full time to the Eagle valley for many years and finally was able to do so a couple of years ago. Since I have done business here for some while, it was not a difficult transition.The main difference is that I am available readily and do not have a 2 plus hour commute from my office to show property.

Memberships and Licensing

I am currently a member of the Vail Board of Realtors, The National Association of Realtors,  Vail MLS, IRES MLS and hold the IRC 2009 contractor’s licensing designation. I am licensed with the State of Colorado as a Broker Associate with Slifer, Smith and Frampton Real Estate at the Park Hyatt Office in Beaver Creek.
