Real Estate Monday

In addition to the full-time and second-home market in Aspen, there is a burgeoning fractional ownership niche as well. Long-time local real estate agents Bubba and Tracy Eggleston are excited to announce this newest listing in the fractional division of their portfolio: A 3-bedroom 4 fixed-week fractional at the St. Regis.
Absolutely one of the best opportunities on the market if you are a summer patron. With three consecutive prime-time summer weeks 29, 30 and 31 (this year translating to July 27th – August 17th) you’ll enjoy all Summer in Aspen has to offer including Theatre Aspen, Aspen Art Museum & their benefit ArtCrush, JAS Cafe, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, Aspen Institute, and the Aspen Music Festival. Bubba notes that consecutive weeks are almost unheard of in the fractional world so click here for the full listing.
The Remede Spa, located down a beautiful stairwell inside the St. Regis, is one of the highest rated spas in town and happens to be one of Tracy’s (and our) favorites. It has THE ultimate in luxury spa services and amenities including an oxygen room for relaxation, a soaking tub with waterfalls and fabulous Remede products.
The hotel is also recognized for it’s fabulous pool, beautifully designed common areas, and wonderful onsite restaurants. (Featured above on the right from top to bottom are the hotel’s library, the Chef’s Club, and the hotel’s living room) all literally right at your fingertips.
Bubba and Tracy Eggelston have 15 years combined real estate experience that translates directly into their comprehensive understanding of the varied and often complex Aspen market. With 2 young children, they are very tied to the community and extremely knowledgeable about the Roaring Fork Valley.
Although Tracy and Bubba both originally hail from Pennsylvania, their paths didn’t cross (literally) until they were walking their dogs one day in Aspen. Bubba played quarterback for Columbia University and Tracy graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in International Business.

Call to schedule a showing while you’re in town or meet Bubba, the hard core skier of the two, at the Gondola for a run and to talk business …the St. Regis is just a block away.

Enjoy and please tell them SCOUT sent you,
