“When you expect exceptional service and results, it would be my pleasure to assist you in all of your real estate needs in the Vail Valley.” – Heidi
The family apple farm and ski resort in Michigan afforded Heidi Bintz the opportunity to start skiing at the age of three. A graduate of Michigan State University, with a degree in Agricultural Economics, she worked at Merrill Lynch as a commodity and stock broker. With a desire to live in the mountains Heidi moved to Vail in 1985 and became co-owner of Kenny’s Double Diamond Ski Shop and founder of the Double Diamond Ski Clinic for women. After selling this successful business, Heidi pursued the Real Estate world. In Heidi’s 11 years as a realtor in Vail and Beaver Creek she has been awarded Top Producer many times with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty plus two significant sales worldwide. Heidi’s awards and accolades undoubtedly demonstrate her authority on Vail Valley real estate. However, it’s her enthusiasm, professionalism, negotiating skills, passion for the business and the valley she calls home that truly sets her apart. As a mother of two daughters the outdoors remains part of the family life. Having the Rocky Mountains as a setting for raising children is a joy to her. Heidi loves the mountain lifestyle in the Vail Valley and wants to share her knowledge and passion for the area.

“I very much enjoyed working with Sotheby’s, particularly Heidi Bintz. She was phenomenal. I am very pleased with her work. Best wishes for your continued success”
“I’ve known Heidi for over 30 years and I’ve always been impressed with her zest for life, ever present work ethic, her dedication to her family, as well as her loyalty to her friends, I’ve always enjoyed her effervescent personality blended with her great sense of humor. Over the years, I’ve consistently noticed, as a result of her background, her awareness of various economic markets both in real estate as well as national affairs. I think she is a great resource.”

“After several years of trying to sell our Cordillera home, which, combined with the financial crisis, as well as the subsequent Cordillera golf club bankruptcy, made selling an almost impossible task. After having tried several local real estate agencies, as well as the property on and off the market, we finally came to the conclusion that we had to try something different.
In June of 2010, we sought out an international real estate agency, namely Fuller-Sotheby’s [now LIV Sotheby’s] which then connected us with award winning realtor Heidi Bintz. Heidi approached the marketing and selling of our property very aggressively and displayed her determination by constantly promoting our property in local and distant markets, via internet, newspapers, magazine & broker receptions. Heidi tried all the latest technology, which included photographing the exterior of our home and gardens via drone.
Likewise, she also recognized that local market exposure such as frequent open houses were important and ultimately proved to be the successful strategy which brought us our buyers. Our home was sold to individuals whom to my knowledge, had not consulted MLS listings, but just happened to drop by one of our open houses. As a consequence of all the foregoing information, we can highly recommend Heidi Bintz as an aggressive market-targeted real estate agent. She sold our home in about a year after more than seven years on an off the market. Her never-give-up attitude and positive demeanor to successfully sell our home brought us the results we were so actively seeking.
Heidi has lived in the Vail Valley for over 20 years and her contacts, the new Fuller Sotheby’s office in Edwards, and her focused and personalized service brought us the perfect solution. We are grateful to Heidi Bintz for her dedication to our sale.”

“Heidi Bintz did a great job selling our house at 2524 Colorow Road in Squaw Creek in Edwards. Our house was not an easy one to sell since it is up 2.5 miles of switchbacks at 8600 feet. The house had been on the market two years with another realtor and we got a contract on the house 6 months after she signed on with us. Heidi is extremely professional and organized and highly energetic. She worked hard to build a brochure and website with good pictures, held several open houses and maximized the advertising and marketing opportunities available. She personally attended every open house and showing. A lot of realtors say they will be there for all the showings but when a conflict comes up, they are not there. Heidi rearranged her schedule to be there at all the showings. The final contract came through Labor Day weekend, when many realtors are out of town, but she was there at the house almost the whole weekend talking with clients and offering wine and crackers. The focus, energy and commitment she brought to the sale effort were what set her apart from so many other realtors. Heidi is a long time resident of the valley, and avid skier and horsewoman knows the valley well. She has many connections within the valley community. She is also a very nice person to work with and responds to emails, texts and phone calls within 24 hours. We were very happy with the work she did for us and would recommend her highly to others.”
“Thanks again for selling our house at 1145 Pilgrim Drive in Edwards, Colorado. We both, Gudrun and I were very impressed by your professional and at the same time personal approach to sell our home. You started working for us the day we listed the house with you. You pulled all your firms and personal resources, television, photographs and the internet to promote our property. You kept us informed what happened with the potential customers you showed the house to. Over all the communication with us was very good and we knew at all times that you were working to sell our house. You selected the persons that you showed the property to. In the end you brought us two offers and we sold the house. I have already and will in the future recommend you to anyone who is looking for a realtor in the Vail Valley”.

“Working with Heidi was such a great experience! I’ve never met someone that was so involved and took so much pride in their work. She went the extra mile and made sure everything was perfect. She has a diverse background and a lot of knowledge to pass along. I truly hope we will work together again in the future”.
“We are very impressed by your professionalism, your organization and your enthusiasm. You were extremely organized and diligent and creative in your communication back and forth. The bottom line is that we are happy with our purchase and more than pleased with your performance”.
