PeekaCity knows it!
Top agents across the country, like my colleague Barbara Puff, can help you find great vacation properties such as this one in Arizona.

Around this time of year, many Chicagoans are ready for a vacation, my family included. In our case, however, with three children under four years of age, hotels are not a good option. Shuttling the boys to a restaurant and back for all their meals is anything but relaxing, and we need more than just a place to sleep.

In anticipation of this, we purchased a condo in the Colorado Rockies – an area that offers year round recreation. We head out there when we can to ski, fly-fish, hike, swim, and generally decompress. A couple days of clean mountain air and crisp blue skies is a fantastic way to recharge, and our boys love it.

If you are suffering from a bout of spring fever, you might also consider buying a vacation home instead of renting or staying in a hotel. Prices in many resort destinations have fallen significantly – far more than home values here in Chicago. There are some amazing opportunities out there. Someday, we will look back at 2009 and wish we had picked up an extra property or two when prices and interest rates were low.

If you are thinking about purchasing a resort home, it is important to get expert guidance from a real estate professional you can trust. As the #22 ranked salesperson worldwide in the Coldwell Banker/NRT family and as a member of the exclusive CKG Mastery program, I know award-winning agents all across North America.

If you would like to learn more about vacation homes for sale in your favorite resort community, please email or call me on my cell at (773) 908-3632. Let me ensure your next real estate transaction is a success by introducing you to the top agent in the destination of your dreams.

    Great review! The Colorado Rockies is really an ideal place for boating. Whether you're into adventure boating or recreational boating with the family aboard an inflatable boat, its clear waters and scenic ambiance will leave you wanting more!

  • The Colorado Rockies is an ideal place for the family indeed. Not only does it provide a wide playground for the children to enjoy, it also provides a scenic landscape for the whole family to remember by and share with the future generations to come. 🙂

  • In case you have a plan to take a family trip, it’s far better for you to think about generating a price range that will make you know what type of expenses you’ve to prepare. In this case, it really is advised for you personally to budget your family trip so you might not make any mistake and your trip shall be extra enjoyable as you strategy before.
