Broker Patrick Welch was born and raised in the Vail Valley, giving his clients a highly-experienced broker with extensive knowledge about areas that can best meet their lifestyle and resort property needs. Inspired by his father Don, who was a real estate broker in the area for decades, Patrick worked alongside him to hone his realty skills in the complex luxury resort real estate market while gaining valuable first-hand knowledge of the many luxury property options surrounding the mountains he calls home. "It has been wonderful to create a partnership in a business we both enjoy", says Don. The years of mentorship by his father have proven invaluable.
Patrick graduated from Battle Mountain High School in 1993 and after high school he attended the University of Northern Colorado, graduating in 1997. A broker of over 18 years, Patrick specializes in servicing second home buyers and sellers, but often assists buyers and sellers at any level. With an office located in the Beaver Creek Lodge, his primary focus is on Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch, and Arrowhead resorts. Thanks to his vast knowledge of Vail real estate and love of the area’s many outdoor activities, Patrick often helps clients in all areas of the Vail Valley and encourages them to drop-in or call with non-real estate questions.
Being heavily involved in the local community, Patrick is uniquely positioned to combine his historical perspective of the area with his current knowledge of area issues, projects and neighborhood guidelines to advise his clients. However, if someone wants ideas on where to take a summer hike or a great local eatery, Patrick hopes they’ll drop in to see him. Patrick’s experience and knowledge of the entire valley, from East-Vail to Gypsum, and the various niche markets that exist within them is a base of knowledge often not available from other brokers and real estate brokerages.
