Led Gardner

Vail - 230 Bridge Street




About Me

If you were to ask around town, Led's clients would tell you that he has made his mark in Vail Valley luxury real estate by way of superior service, aggressive high-quality marketing, intense focus and a warm, personal approach to his business. Sharing the Vail lifestyle while assisting his clients pursue their Colorado dream is one of Led's favorite pastimes. It is also the reason that many of his clients become good friends... and many of his friends become clients!


Following successful tenures at Xerox Corporation and Coldwell Banker Commercial Real Estate in Nashville, Tennessee, Led found himself asking the question "If I could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?" Having had close ties to the Rocky Mountains since his youth, Led first made a part time move to Vail 30 years ago, in February of 1989.


Moving to the Vail Valley full time in 1998, Led quickly established a successful reputation in the luxury real estate market. After a decade of success as both broker and lead partner in smaller, boutique brokerages, Led's desire to best serve his clients' needs ultimately led him to the flagship 230 Bridge Street/Vail Village office of Slifer, Smith & Frampton. In conjunction with the company's deep pool of marketing resources and talent, Led's personal experience in developing, brokering and investing in resort real estate has positioned him well to serve the specialized needs of a very discerning, high-end clientele.


Led's tenure with Slifer, Smith & Frampton has proved fruitful, resulting in numerous accolades within the company. Included are #1 broker in the Bridge Street office, consistent Top 5, Top 10 and Top 20 rankings amongst the company's 100+ brokers, recipient of the company's cherished Brokers Choice Award (twice) and Standards of Excellence Award (twice). This track record led to his being hired as the Branch Broker (Manager) of his top-producing Bridge Street office in 2015, where Led continues to broker the sale of resort property while leading a talented team of successful brokers.


Giving back to his profession, and his community, is another passion. Led has served two terms as a Director of the Vail Board of Realtors, six years as a Trustee on the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival board, Council member and two-term President of his church, and two-term President of his own Homeowners Association, as well as serving on several other boards, property owner associations and marketing and development committees. Serving as a mentor via his leadership role in local Mens Fraternity groups over the years  (www.mensfraternity.com) has been another meaningful activity for Led.


Led remains most grateful to have the opportunity to conduct business, and raise his family, in this beautiful part of the world. Led, Connie and Chase thrive on the many activities that surround them, with a special passion for skiing and biking. Looking back over the past 30 years in the Vail Valley brings about a sense of heartfelt gratitude, something Led enjoys sharing with his clientele, family and friends.


Enjoying your Vail Valley dream home is great fun. Yet its acquisition and eventual sale are serious business. Helping you accomplish these dreams is Led's business.  He looks forward to the opportunity to be of service to you and your family.
