Spearheaded by 30+ year specialist Janet Boeser, the new division provides luxury vacation ownership options for buyers
Providing a new resource for vacationers and buyers interested in luxury vacation ownership options, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Colorado Properties has added a fractional ownership division, BC Fractionals, to its real estate services. The new division is based out of the company’s Villa-Montane office in Beaver Creek.
Spearheaded by 31-year Vail Valley resident and 24-year real estate industry veteran Janet Boeser, who joined Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Colorado Properties in February 2020 as broker associate, the fractional ownership team also includes 42-year Vail Valley resident and 31-year real estate industry expert Tisa Olsen as well as broker associates Declan O’Donnell, Elizabeth Sullivan and Carrie Larson.
“We’re excited to offer this new vacation ownership opportunity to our clients,” said Michael Slevin, president of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Colorado Properties. Janet has put together a five-star team of broker associates to support the growing number of inquiries we are experiencing,“Janet has put together a five-star team of broker associates to support the growing number of inquiries we are experiencing,” Slevin added.
In addition to the fractional ownership division, all team members also list and work with buyers and sellers seeking full ownership options throughout the Vail Valley.
Even before COVID, interest in fractional ownership has continued to rise. It is ideal for people who want ownership without full-time commitment. Fractional ownership allows them to come and experience the Vail Valley and see if they want to purchase a home while also affording them the flexibility to exchange at comparable properties around the world,Boeser added.
A fractional owner herself, Boeser has “lived and worked in the life,” since 1989. “The trend among hotels at most major resort areas is to market and sell a portion of their rooms as fractional units, giving buyers premium properties and locations from which to vacation,” Boeser said.
Highlights of sample properties include The Timbers, Ritz-Carlton Vail, Sebastian, Four Seasons, Park Hyatt, and Westin. Owners can then elect to use their vacation week or exchange on a vacation exchange network, such as Interval International which is owned by Marriott Corp. Entry level costs range from $7,000-$15,000 depending on the week and unit. “When you consider the cost of renting a premier location condo in Vail or Beaver Creek in prime season, people could easily pay upwards of $10,000 per week. Buying a fractional makes this a cost-effective lifestyle investment for vacationers who enjoy and want to experience the Vail Valley, as well as premier properties and resorts around the world,” Boeser added.
