Matt Fitzgerald

Vail - Lionshead




About Me

The move to the Rocky Mountains 15 years ago fulfilled a dream for Matt Fitzgerald. An avid skier and outdoor enthusiast, he had visited Vail on an earlier ski vacation. "I instantly became infatuated with the area," he recalled, and vowed to that one day he would make it his home.

A graduate of Boston University, he came to the Vail Valley from Portland, Maine, where he had spent three years in sales at that city's top commercial real estate brokerage, CB/Richard Ellis.

Since Moving to Vail,  Matt has worked on a number of successful  Development Projects. His first project was the 72 unit Quail Run Townhomes, where he was the exclusive listing broker from pre-sales to project completion. Most recently he was a member of the sales team for Gore Creek Place, The Arrabelle at Vail Square and The Ritz Carlton Residences, Vail in the redevelopment of Lionshead. In addition to assisting clients with the  listing and sale of luxury properties, Matt is the Managing Branch Broker of the Slifer, Smith and Frampton Lionshead office.

Over the course of his career in the Vail Valley Matt has been directly involved in over $600 million of closed transactions. He has received the prestigious Golden Eagle award for closed business in the top 10 of all Slifer, Smith and Frampton brokers.

Matt was nominated by his fellow Vail Valley brokers to be the 2009-10 Chairman of the Board of Directors of the 780 member Vail Board of Realtors.

Matt currently resides in Edwards with wife Erika, 15 year old daughter Sadie and 12 year old son Maddox.

"Matt made the buying process a fun and informative experience. Throughout the transaction I felt comfortable with what was needed of me and that he was taking care of everything that I knew nothing about! Closing on the property at a sale price substantially below what it was listed for was a satisfying experience and I will look forward to working with Matt for any needs in the future. Thank you!"


"Matt was very helpful in our quest to find a vacation home in Vail. He showed us many options, and was very knowledgeable about the market in the area. We felt he did a very professional job, and gave us all the information we needed,so that we felt comfortable making a choice. We had a good experience and are happy with our place.

We would highly recommend Matt."


"We had an excellent experience with Matt Fitzgerald. He was very professional, organized, timely and an excellent negotiator in our successful purchase of a 2 acre lot in the Edwards Area. The purchase invloved the negotiation and successful recording of two easements for power and water between the seller and two adjacent lot owners. Matt was able to negotiate an aggressive price for the lot, then renogotiate a credit from the seller to help cover the cost of the easements and negotiate two extensions to the closing date inorder for us to record the easements prior to closing. We highly him."
