Originally from Baltimore, Maryland I have been a resident of the Vail Valley since 1985 and a Realtor since 2006. With an in depth knowledge of the area, my primary focus is on residential real estate. I have extensive experience working with both buyers and sellers with an emphasis on primary or vacation properties. I am also experienced with managing investment properties, and hold the Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) designation.
In addition to my extensive Real Estate experience, I am also a level 3 PSIA certified ski instructor. In the winter months I still help manage the Vail Ski and Snowboard School. With 30 plus years of experience living and working in the Vail Valley I provide unmatched expertise to help you buy or sell a home. And if you need a couple of ski tips, I can offer that as well.

Marc has been in Vail Valley for 30 years and knows the real estate market here as well as anyone. Marc just helped my wife and I purchase our first property in Eagle-Vail, and the whole process was easy, thanks to him. He is very diligent, honest, and works very hard for his clients. I would recommend Marc without reservation.

Marc was on top of the sale process during the entire time that the sale was pending. He explained the process and answered my questions promptly. He took care of all the details as I was out of town during the entire process.

My wife and I used Marc Harrison on 2 real estate transactions this year -- first to buy a new house, and second to sell our existing house. Both transactions went smoothly. Marc is very responsive, via email, phone or text. When we were looking to buy, his "inside information" of the local market was very helpful -- he even showed us 2 houses that weren't actually listed, since he knew the owners were thinking of selling. For both the purchase and sale, Marc gave us good advice when we were negotiating the price and inspection repair items etc. Everything he needed to do related to contracts, closing documents and so on was done quickly and accurately. Finally, Marc's calm, "no pressure" personality makes him a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend him.

Very easy to work with and patient with my indecisive nature. Friendly with exceptional knowledge of local areas and market trends. This was my first home buying experience and he made it all very easy and smooth.

Marc was recommended to us by a friend and we could not have been happier with the service provided in our search for a mountain home. Marc supplied the tools and initial advice to allow us to sort through numerous properties and locations. Subsequently, he was patient, accommodating and very effective in getting us appointments to see all the properties that interested us. His advice was extremely useful and his answers always accurate. Once we selected the property, Marc's assistance helped us get through the closing process with no difficulty and earlier than scheduled! We recommend Marc to anyone looking for property in the Vail Valley.

Marc listened to our needs and found what we asked for...a unit with a lock-off in my price range. He showed us a large range of properties in several different towns on two different weekends and was able to find exactly what we were seeking. Professional and responsive. Always available. Expert and quick with the contracts and amendments.

I was looking for a place in Vail/Avon/Edwards area, that has covered parking, and preferably can be rented out while I'm not there. Marc knows the area very well, he gave me quite a few good advices and helped me to find a nice condo at Simba Run that has indoor parking and on-site management to handle short term rental. He also arranged the inspection and closing for me. Everything worked out great! I highly recommend Marc if you are looking for a place in that area.

As out-of-state buyers, we struggled finding a home near Vail/Beaver Creek. Following internet and newspaper ads found us in many neighborhoods looking at places that weren't for us. A referral lead us to Mark who knew the entire area very well. He quickly understood and focussed our efforts in just the right way. Now, we have a wonderful home in Colorado and Marc to thank for it. There were also many unexpected complications along the way; negotiations, local rules and regs, etc. He knew how to work through all of them quickly and efficiently.
