Betsy originally hails from Louisville, KY and attended the University of Dayton. She moved to Vail in 1996 after visiting on vacation and realizing Vail was the place she and her husband wanted to raise their family. Early in her sales career she helped clients protect their most important assets working for State Farm insurance.  Since making the switch to real estate she has been involved in over $100 million in sales transactions from assisting first time home buyers to selling second homes in the multi million dollar range. 

For Betsy's first 5 years she worked beside Pat Abbott, a veteran broker, acquiring the knowledge needed to be an expert in Resort Real Estate. In 2010, she partnered with John Pfeiffer from our Summit County office and gained extensive knowledge of the Summit County market and fostered relationships with other brokers in the area. In 2013, Betsy again pursued her own real estate business.

Betsy has 2 wonderful daughters who have grown up in Vail; skiing, playing soccer and ice hockey. She is an active volunteer in the community and is a current Director for the Vail Board of Realtors and the Chair of the Vail Multi List Service. Betsy and her family enjoy the outdoors, skiing, boating, and living in the Vail Valley.

Choosing the right person to assist you with your real estate needs is a big decision. Betsy recognizes that a real estate sale is one of the single largest financial transactions of someone’s life and hope that you find confidence in her services. She looks forward to hearing from you and hopes we can work together to obtain your dream property.






I recently worked with Betsy as the selling broker on a second home I had owned in Eagle-Vail for 12 years. During that time the market had fluctuated from up to down to moving back up. Having sold numerous properties in the past, I felt that choosing the right broker would play a major part in whether the transaction would indeed be successful. Betsy proved to not only have a deep understanding of the Vail Valley marketplace, but became a trusted advisor concerning comparative properties, pricing and timing strategy. I feel that Betsy was an advocate to buyers’ agents and handled the entire process professionally, with a personal touch. Betsy and I continue to work together on other properties and I would highly recommend her in the future.

I bought my home in Gypsum with Betsy and was extremely impressed with the tools SSF offers and how she used them. She kept me well informed and I would recommend her, hands down, to anyone in need of real estate in the Vail Valley.

We have worked with Betsy for years, buying our first property in the Vail Valley, a condo in Arrowhead Village in 2009, with her. We enjoyed the property for years and recently sold it through Betsy completing the sale in June. Betsy worked hard to market the property using a wide variety of print and digital channels. She helped us prepare the property for viewing and sale making it as attractive as possible to a buyer. She worked closely with us on the sale contract and guided us through negotiations and closing. Betsy brings high energy and years of experience to any purchase or sale transaction in the Vail Valley as well as the huge resources of Slifer to help support her clients. We recommend her highly.

Betsy was an incredible asset with our home purchase in the Vail Valley in 2011. Since then she sold our condo we purchased and helped us purchase our current home. We have had the pleasure of working with her on 3 transactions and each experience was a positive one. Her patience, professional approach and dedication made our real estate experience seamless and easy. As out of town owners she assisted in getting our condo ready for sale and helping find the right people to make the process of selling stress-free. She is smart, hard-working and market savvy. We would use her again and have referred friends to her to assist in buying in the Vail Valley.

I would recommend Betsy Laughlin to assist you in your real estate transaction. As a licensed broker myself she is my go to for contract questions. She helped me with my purchase of my investment condo after looking in the Vail valley for over 7 years. Her persistence to stay in touch and market knowledge found me the right property at the right time. Betsy Laughlin is professional, persistent and hard working I was pleased with her service and glad to now call her my friend.
