Not many other companies in the Aspen/Snowmass area offer all of these services under one roof – and no local company offers the selection and diversity. For more than 40 years, Frias Properties has been helping vacationers and future owners experience the Aspen dream. This week, our blog team takes a closer look at buying, selling, renting and living in Aspen, and how Frias can assist you with each aspect.

Frias Properties can work with your to purchase your dream home in Aspen.

Frias Properties brokers and staff meet future Aspen homeowners all the time – often before the future homeowner even knows they want to buy. Many future homeowners first experience the magic of this mountain town while staying in a property rented through Frias. That initial visit sparks a love affair with Aspen, and some guests eventually decide to purchase a dream home in town. Frias Properties has nine experienced real estate brokers, available 24/7, to assist you in searching for the perfect Aspen property. Frias brokers represent a wide variety of inventory, from luxury private estates to condominiums and fractional-ownership opportunities.

Fractional-ownership rentals at luxury brand names such as the Hyatt Grand Aspen, Ritz-Carlton Club and St. Regis Residence Club are very popular with potential owners. These luxury units are typically sold in week or two-week blocks, much like a traditional timeshare. This allows owners to visit a few weeks per year and experience all of the amenities for which the luxury brands are known. Frias currently represents units at the Hyatt Grand Aspen and St. Regis Residence Club in downtown Aspen, as well as the ski-in/ski-out Ritz-Carlton Club at Aspen Highlands.

Many buyers looking for private ownership of a condominium, townhouse or private home in Aspen work with Frias brokers to make their dream come true. Our brokers will work with sellers to negotiate the best price for you. Our brokers are experienced in working with buyers from start to finish, handling every issue that arises. Our brokers are known for being courteous, fair and tedious when it comes to their clients. Frias managing partner Tim Clark sums it up best: “My goal is to guide buyers and sellers, to make the most of every moment with precise detail, experience and professionalism, and to conclude the transaction leaving the client with a sense of wow and enthusiasm.”

When it’s time to sell, many Aspen owners call on Frias Properties. We have specialists in every market niche – from residential real estate to commercial spaces to vacant land. One of the big attractions of Frias Properties is that it is decidedly “non-corporate.” We like doing things on a personal level. This has been the strength of Frias for the past four decades. Our experienced staff has experience in all types of selling, including short sales and foreclosures. Frias brokers are always available to discuss your property’s value and give you a detailed market analysis of current real estate activity.
