Betsy Laughlin

Betsy originally hails from Louisville, KY and attended the University of Dayton. She moved to Vail in 1996 after visiting on vacation and realizing Vail was the place she and her husband wanted to raise their family. Early in her sales career she helped clients protect their most important assets working for State Farm insurance.  Since making the switch to real estate she has been involved in over $100 million in sales transactions from assisting first time home buyers to selling second homes in the multi million dollar range. 

For Betsy's first 5 years she worked beside Pat Abbott, a veteran broker, acquiring the knowledge needed to be an expert in Resort Real Estate. In 2010, she partnered with John Pfeiffer from our Summit County office and have been able to assist clients in both Vail and Breckenridge resort communities.

Betsy has 2 wonderful daughters who have grown up in Vail; skiing, playing soccer and ice hockey. She is an active volunteer in the community and is a past board member for EagleVail POA and a current Director for the Vail Board of Realtors.  Betsy and her family enjoy the outdoors, skiing, boating, and living in the Vail Valley.

Choosing the right person to assist you with your real estate needs is a big decision. Betsy recognizes that a real estate sale is one of the single largest financial transactions of someone’s life and hope that you find confidence in her services. She looks forward to hearing from you and hopes we can work together to obtain your dream property.

Betsy was an incredible asset with our home purchase in the Vail Valley in 2011. Since then she sold our condo we purchased and helped us purchase our current home. We have had the pleasure of working with her on 3 transactions and each experience was a positive one. Her patience, professional approach and dedication made our real estate experience seamless and easy. As out of town owners she assisted in getting our condo ready for sale and helping find the right people to make the process of selling stress-free. She is smart, hard-working and market savvy. We would use her again and have referred friends to her to assist in buying in the Vail Valley.
