TIME

It’s not uncommon for guests to be left speechless when they visit Telluride. The breathtaking beauty and authentic mountain community make this place one-of-a-kind, and can leave people with a loss of words.

In light of this, we posed a simple question to six people who live and love Telluride – “How would you describe Telluride with a single word?” Their answers were honest, insightful and real. Their stories were framed to create a six-part video series. These people describe the Telluride experience in a way never before. It’s called “Telluride in a Word”. Simply put – it’s the story of the Telluride experience… one word at a time.

Telluride is surrounded by time. It’s found in the 13,000 and 14,000 foot San Juan peaks that were formed over millions of years. It’s in the historic mining structures that the people of Telluride have fought to preserve. Yet, time seems to fly past us in an instant, especially when we lose ourselves in this place.

Our final episode of the #TellurideInaWord video series explores time in Telluride. Get off the clock, sit back and enjoy.

[Time] is the sixth and final video in the series.

Telluride
MOUNTAIN MAKEOVERS A $1.3 million investment in Telluride Ski Resort’s snowmaking capabilities means more snow in high-traffic areas off of Lifts 4 and 5 (the beginner and intermediate areas in the heart of the trail system).

SUITE STAY The Inn at Lost Creek, a ski-in/ski-out boutique property located slopeside in the heart of the Mountain Village core, features 32 guest rooms with gas-fed stone fireplaces, kitchens, jetted tubs, steam showers and impressive views of the San Juan Mountains. Be sure to enjoy the drink specials (daily until 6PM) at the property’s Siam’s Talay Grille—Mountain Village’s newest dining establishment, offering contemporary Asian tapas and seafood. One-bedroom suites from $299 per night

ALL-IN APRÈS Grab a seat at the recently improved SMAK Bar, located within Hotel Madeline Telluride, where you’ll enjoy live DJs, cocktails and s’mores. Be sure to try the specialty Revelation cocktail: peppermint schnapps-spiked hot chocolate served in an oversize mug garnished with chocolate latticework, on which three boozy truffles rest.

LOCAL LORE Gus Kenworthy, Sochi Olympic silver medalist in men’s freeski slopestyle, offers his top recommendations and favorites:

1. The bar at the historic New Sheridan Hotel offers good drinks and a fun Western ambience that speaks to Telluride’s rich mining history.

2. Kind of like Telluride’s country club, The Peaks Resort & Spa is an awesome place to hang out and feel pampered. It has an incredible gym, and an indoor/outdoor pool and spa.

3. I love going to see a movie when I’m in Telluride. The Nugget Theatre is old, and the movies that play there have already been out for months, but it’s always a fun experience.

4. Cosmopolitan Telluride is a fine-dining restaurant on the ground floor of the luxurious Hotel Columbia. It’s located downtown by the gondola, on Gus’s Way, the street named after me after the Olympics!

5. If you’re looking to shop while you’re in town, I recommend checking out Pip’s Fine & Funky Consignment. My mom owns the store, and it’s a fun mix of designer clothes, vintage, costumes and everything in between.

RUN OF YOUR LIFE Intermediate skiers will love the See Forever Trail. Take Gold Hill Express (chair 14), and ride up to 12,255 feet where the run begins. Ski the ridgeline while admiring the deep couloirs and jagged terrain of Bear Creek to your right and the Wilson Range to your left. Advanced skiers looking to earn their turns should try Palmyra Peak. Ride Prospect Express (chair 12) to 11,815 feet; unclick from your skis or snowboard; and start the 1,505-foot hike to the top. Once there, get ready to descend more than 1,000 feet of vertical drop over untouched powder.

Top 10 Expert Tips for Buying a Luxury Home

IMG_7180

By Marcia Jedd, FrontDoor.com:

From a brand-new Trump condo and a historic Newport estate to a golf course community in the South, there’s a plethora of choices in high-end homes. Consider these tips from luxury home market pros before buying your dream home.

1. Learn the search process.

“Many luxury homes go unlisted to protect a seller’s privacy. These properties are often found through the Realtor’s personal connections as opposed to the MLS.” Virginia Cook, Virginia Cook Realtors, Dallas

“You may need to go to more online sources as not everything is on the large search engines.”Ronald Phipps, Phipps Realty, Warwick, R.I.

2. Go beyond the photos.

“Make sure you don’t dismiss properties based on their front elevation photos. Many large homes aren’t photogenic that way and you have to see them in person to appreciate. I recommend my clients do a search of the property and vicinity on Google Earth so you can see what’s around the home.” Ronald Phipps, Phipps Realty, Warwick, R.I.

3. Work with a local expert.

“It’s critical to have a good buyer agent who is familiar with the area you want to buy in. There’s a bit more control on access to high-end properties in terms of fewer open houses and more appointments have to be made to see them.” Elizabeth Blakeslee, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Washington, D.C.

4. Bank on your relationships.

“I strongly recommend you go to the bank you have a relationship with. They have your portfolio already. Also, know the difference between the pre-approval letter and the prequalification letter.”Nancy Suvarnamani, Century 21 SGR Inc., Chicago

5. Document everything.

“There is more scrutiny today in the high-end market. Financial documentation is critical. Anyone who is making a lot of money has a manager or an accountant and tries hard to shelter their money so it can be difficult to show the bank you have the income.” Steve Goddard, RE/MAX Beach Cities Realty, Manhattan Beach, Calif.

6. Hire smart, reliable advisers.

“A good Realtor won’t make the client’s decisions but will make suggestions. Pay attention to your financial planner and Realtor that you trust. They should agree on what you should be doing and if they don’t, arrange a meeting.” David Boyer, Jack Woodcock Team, Las Vegas

7. Don’t forget about title insurance.

“You need to get title insurance so you’ll be insured against any problems that were forgotten about. You want to make sure you have a chance to have a look at the exceptions page of the title insurance process before closing time.” Moe Veissi, Veissi & Associates, Miami

8. Look into the future.

“Make sure you know what building is planned around you. What happens if someone pushes the bar and builds another building even taller?”

“Know the timeline. You don’t want to tie your cash up for a long period of time if there are any kinds of construction delays.” Alexander Chaparro, @properties, Chicago

9. Know what to expect with cooperatives and condominiums.

“For co-ops and condos you want to be represented by an attorney who will research the building on its financial viability.” Klara Madlin, Klara Madlin Real Estate, New York City

10. There’s room to negotiate.

“It’s individual points, the view or remodeling that makes these properties one of a kind and makes them able to command a particular price. Have your agent research the comparable properties that have recently sold, getting closing prices, right before you make an offer.” Fanny Y. Chu, Prudential California Realty, San Francisco
