Originally from beautiful Adelaide, South Australia, Anna moved to Vail over 25 years ago after touring the US when she fell in love with the mountain lifestyle of Vail. Anna has always had a strong sense of adventure and competed with the local bicycle racing circuit as a mountain bike racer and advanced to pro racing and competed in the 1994 championships held in Vail.
Anna has been very involved in the many noteworthy causes of the Vail Valley community. She is most proud of her work with the Vail Buddy’s group, which is a locally developed child mentoring and development program. She was blessed enough to become a mother-like figure to one of her mentees, Justine, who now attends the University of Denver.
Anna held various positions within the hospitality industry before her real estate career began 15 years ago. These positions included resort destination management, concierge services, activities coordinator, and the sales director at Bachelor Gulch & Beaver Creek Club selling private memberships. She really enjoyed the challenges of the sales profession and wanted to continue her career in that direction, which made selling real estate, a perfect fit for her.
Anna obtained her real estate license in 1998 and was fortunate enough to work side by side and learned from one of Slifer’s pioneer real estate brokers, John Appleby, from 1999 through 2008. Her tenure with John was a proven success as they were continuously recognized as top selling producers, and were rated in the top five producers at Slifer Smith & Frampton in 2002, selling more than $64 million in real estate transactions. Anna has successfully handled over 200 transactions and over $460 million in property sales.
Anna is truly dedicated to her work and her clients. She holds high integrity and works for her clients to get the job done, even in the most challenging market. She provides her clients with a high level of service, professionalism and knowledge.
When Anna is not actively working, to no surprise, you will find her on her mountain bike or spending time with Justine and her friends. Her other hobbies are salsa dancing, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, traveling and theater.
Anna is located in the SSF Bachelor Gulch office in the Ritz Carlton® Hotel, a world-class ski resort. Anna has the experience and knowledge to help you with all of your real estate needs anywhere in the Vail Valley.
