The family apple farm and ski resort in Michigan enabled Heidi Bintz to start skiing at the age of three. As a graduate of Michigan State University, with a degree in Agricultural Economics, she worked at Merrill Lynch as a commodity and stockbroker.
With a desire to live in the mountains, Heidi moved to Vail in 1985 and became co-owner of Kenny’s Double Diamond Ski Shop and founder of the Double Diamond Ski Clinics for women. After selling those businesses, Heidi pursued a career in the real estate world. In her 16 years as a realtor in Vail and Beaver Creek, she has been awarded as a Top Producing Agent seven times with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty and has sold over $140M during this time.
Heidi's many awards and accolades undoubtedly demonstrate her authority on Vail Valley real estate. However, it’s her enthusiasm, professionalism, negotiating skills, and passion for the business and the valley she calls home that truly sets her apart. Heidi has embraced the new demand for online marketing practices through many social media platforms, her personal website, virtual open houses, and video content creation. She has specialized in luxury ski and ranch properties in Colorado and has made connections to other Sotheby’s offices around the globe.
Heidi raised her two daughters in the Vail Valley where the surrounding Rocky Mountains created an outdoor playground for the whole family. She has, and continues to be, active within the community as a local resident. Heidi truly lives the mountain lifestyle everyday and loves to share her knowledge and passion for the area with others.

Thanks again for selling our house at 1145 Pilgrim Down in Edwards, Colorado. We both, Gundrun and I, were very impressed by your professional and at the same time personal approach to selling our home. You started working for us the day we listed the house with you. You pulled all your firm's and personal resources via television, photographs, and the internet to promote our property. You kept us informed as to what happened with the potential customers you showed the house to. Overall, the communication with us was very good and we knew at all times that you were working to sell our house. You selected the persons that you showed the property to. In the end you brought us two offers and we sold the house. I have already, and will in the future, recommend you to anyone who is looking for a realtor in the Vail Valley.
Have you worked with Heidi Bintz before and want to write a testimonial on their behalf?
