We had the pleasure of working with Steve Cardinale and his staff on the recent purchase of a property in Avon.

We could not have asked for a better experience from start to finish. We had a long time frame for our purchase and Steve took the time to get to know us and understand our needs. He was patient and extremely knowledgeable throughout the entire process and had our best interests in mind every step of the way. With Steve's guidance and support, we were able to find and purchase our ideal place - and he went above and beyond to make sure the process was seamless. We highly recommend Steve Cardinale and his staff for any real estate needs and look forward to working with him in the future.

Robert Such

Steve Cardinale is an outstanding professional.

It was a real pleasure working with him for the second time.

Edmund Lennig

Working with Steve was a fantastic experience.

We were referred to him by a friend of ours and we couldn't be happier. Steve showed us a wide range of properties and helped us figure out what we really wanted in a second home. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and communication with him and his assistant, Lea, were always seamless. We are so excited about our purchase and thanks to Steve and Lea, the process was enjoyable. I would highly recommend working with them if you're looking for a property in Beaver Creek or Avon!

Anthony James Lambatos

We have bought and sold many homes in different places and Steve Cardinale is the best real estate broker we have ever worked with.

He and his team, especially Lea, provide outstanding customer service and display the highest integrity. At every point in the process- from showing us properties to closing- Steve went above and beyond to make everything as easy as possible. We can’t recommend him highly enough.

Shari Leventhal

Steve is the best and regularly provided us with an update as to showings on our listing.

Lea from his office also did a great job of working with us on some of the more detailed issues.

We first began working with Steve and Lea almost five years ago when we purchased a fractional unit at the St.

James Place in Beaver Creek Village.  Steve and Lea made the process a breeze and we were so impressed by both their patience and their honesty.  Everything that they told us prior to the sale turned out to be true – there were no surprises.  Over the years, our family has fallen in love with the Beaver Creek area and St. James, specifically.  After much consideration, we decided that we wanted a second home in Beaver Creek.  We connected with Steve and Lea to discuss our goals and they began working with us.  Unfortunately, at the time of our decision, there was nothing available that fit our needs.  While disappointed, Steve encouraged us to be patient and laid out a plan to identify and be ready when our ideal property came available.  Specifically, they 1) encouraged us to look at other properties in Beaver Creek to make sure St. James was the place for us, 2) they worked very hard during our visits to make sure we saw various floor plans in the St. James, and 3) they did a tremendous amount of networking to give us early warning if a desirable floor plan was coming available.  This “pre-work” allowed us to confidently make a very quick “yes” decision when a 3 bedroom unit in St. James came on the market.  Because we are out of town and have numerous other commitments, they made our jobs very easy.  They facilitated connections with trusted bankers, lawyers, home inspectors, etc. Steve and Lea kept us on schedule for closing, and were very quick to answer any questions we had. Again, everything they told us before the purchase turned out to be true after the purchase (from rental income to market demand).  If you are looking for honest and hard-working real estate partners, look no further than Steve and Lea.

Mike and Nancy Ostergard

Working with Steve since 2004 has always been a 100% positive experience.

Now Lea has teamed with him - which has expanded that positive experience. I can't imagine any team being more knowledgeable about property in the Vail Valley. I would/will recommend working with Steve & Lea to anyone who might ask.

Terry D. Goodson

The team of Steve Cardinale and Lea Zugschwerdt were very helpful and accommodating in the the search for properties that met our requirements.

They adjusted their schedules on short notice to ensure we had adequate time to review each listing and quickly followed up. The entire purchasing process was very efficient and they were responsive to any questions. I will be using them in the future as well.

David S. Content

Steve's experience and attention to detail is second to none.

His patience and persistence helped my family find the perfect piece of real estate that will create memories that will last for generations to come.

B. Cornell

Steve and Lea were absolutely great to work with on our recent property sale.

From the moment we discussed possibly listing our home to the week we actually did, they helped guide us toward what would be needed to feature our property in the best possible listing time and various listing outlets. The entire process went smoothly and upon listing, we had it sold within 3 days. Then all through the closing process we were kept abreast of the upcoming stages and needs, right up until the actual virtual closing. I would highly recommend Steve as a realtor for any and all of our home buying or selling needs.

BLL Family LLC

I have known Steve for the past 20 years or so and have purchased two timeshares from him at the St.

James, he has always been professional and knowledgeable. He always takes time to greet and spend time with you, asks about your family And overall makes you feel welcomed. Steve is a great asset to SSF and the Vail area, I have recommended many people to consider owning a time share in Vail and recommending Steve to help them. Steve just recently helped us sell one of our units at the St. James and the sale went seamlessly and his assistant Lea was always in touch with me keeping me up-to-date, Steve and his team did a great job.

R. Craig Fisher

Steve and Lea make a wonderful team.

Each are professional, knowledgeable, kind, and thorough. Even though it was Covid, and my wife and I were 800 miles away, we had complete confidence that they both would represent our interests, provide the information about the acquisition on a timely basis, and make sure that they stepped into situations that we would normally be participating in had we been in Beaver Creek. This is my seventh transaction with Steve and Lea, and each one has turned out beautifully. I heartily recommend that anyone considering buying a property in Eagle County also consider using Steve as your agent. Our family is thrilled with our new condo and we have Steve and Lea to thank for helping us acquire it. Steve Goldberg

Steven Goldberg

The transaction was smooth and easy.

Amazing personal attention!

Daniela Huerta Domit

We can't thank Steve Cardinale enough for helping us purchase our dream property at St James Place in Beaver Creek.

We met Steve over 28 years ago when he sold us a 2-bedroom unit with an amazing village view and we have remained in contact ever since. When the 3-bedroom unit directly above recently came on the market, Steve helped us make the purchase. He is a consummate professional who is deeply committed to his clients and makes the process easy. I give Steve my highest recommendation and look forward to many more years of friendship!

Chris and Lynne

Our relationship with Steve is one of the most valuable business relationships we have.

Adam Benjamin Ostmeyer

We have purchased and sold several properties in the Vail Valley over the past 20 years and Steve has been our broker every time.

We would never consider using anyone else because Steve and Lea go above and beyond to make sure everything goes smoothly. They are the consummate professionals.

Shari Leventhal

I've known Steve Cardinale for over 15 years.

He showed us the first condo we considered purchasing in Beaver Creek. In 2007 Steve sold us the house that's just sold on Stag Gulch. He also was our realtor when we purchased a condo at the Westin Riverfront, in Avon. Throughout every transaction with Steve, he has made the process move along smoothly and quickly. In the recent sale of Stag Gulch, Steve's guidance and patient perseverance moved this sell to completion. In my experience of working with many realtors around the US, Steve is the most committed, honest, and professional realtor I've worked worked with. If you're looking for a professional, no drama, no high pressure, realtor with your best interest in mind, I highly recommend Steve Cardinale. I say the same for Steve's assistant, Lea Zugschwerdt. Lea went frar

Lavon Coleman

Steve Cardinals and his team got my 2 of the 3 time share sold within 3 months of placing them on the market.

Good job. They were flexible with our odd timing for the closing.

Stephen Pariso

Our times st Beaver Creek over the years have been special.

It is a great place.

Barbara J. Pitzer

Steve and Lea were fantastic to work with and we appreciate all of their help selling our timeshare!

Christopher Manhart

We bought our unit at St.

James Place from Steve in 1996 and were delighted to see he was still at Slifer Smith. We called him when we decided it was time to sell our unit. He said our week 27 over July 4th was a prime week and our best bet was to sell it to someone who already had a week adjacent to ours. That’s just what happened. It took 15 days for Steve to sell our unit. Who ever thought a timeshare would sell so quickly? What a go-getter!

Glen Payne

Steve Cardinale and his team were wonderful to work with.

Steve has long-term and in-depth knowledge of Beaver Creek and was instrumental in making sure we had all the information necessary to make the best decision for our vacation property. Steve's team was highly communicative throughout the process and made sure the contract and subsequent closing process occurred as planned. I highly recommend Steve and will not hesitate to partner on our next property.

Kelly R. Koehn

I found Steve and his team to be very professional and reasonable in working through some difficult situations in arriving at a successful conclusion.

Charles Johnston

Steve's extensive knowledge of the Real Estate market in the Vail Valley is phenomenal and lends an element of extreme confidence in making both buying and selling decisions.

In addition his friendliness and straight forward honesty makes working with him great. Steve has been a joy to work with over the past 20+ years and we will always count him as one of our Beaver Creek Friends.

Randy L. DouBrava

Steve Cardinale and his assistant Lea Zugschwerdt were instrumental in assisting my family in finding a home in the Vail area that met all of our specific needs and desires.

Steve consistently obtained answers to any and all questions we had and did so in a timely, thorough, and patient manner. Although it took over a year for us to locate the ideal property there was never any pressure from Steve who always had pleasant and easygoing demeanor despite the wide range of properties we explored. We look forward to working with Steve and Lea should we have future reality needs in the Vail area.


My father does business with Steve and his team for more than 20 years and the service has always been fantastic.

Now that I was looking for a property for my family, I didn't consider any other alternative but coming to SSF. And I'm very satisfied of my choice.

Ricardo Longo

I worked with Steve Cardinale in purchasing my home in Beaver Creek.

He and his assistant Lea were wonderful. They compiled many lists of properties for me to consider after many changes in mind on my part. They worked with me to find just what I was looking for. They are efficient, patient, knowledgeable, thorough, and enthusiastic. Steve is very knowledgeable about the area and helped me think through my purchase. He also was a great resource during the contract period where I needed to find an attorney, inspector and plumber. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

JLM Paramount LLC

Steve and Lea are an incredible asset in selling or buying your Vail Valley property.

Their professionalism and ongoing communications are an important element in making you feel at ease and getting the property transaction completed. We recommend Steve Cardinale's Slifer Office with the highest level of enthusiasm. No doubt I will use this team again should I ever have the need for another Vail Valley real estate transaction.

David A. Weiss

Thank you, Steve, for all your support and assistance.

As always, your service was impeccable throughout the transaction. As overseas buyers who were unable to visit or view the property in person, your help, guidance and assistance gave us the assurance we needed to proceed with confidence.

William Sinclair

Thanks again for managing the sale of my St.

James condo, hard to believe you and I met 20 years ago when I first purchased the unit! As expected, everything went flawlessly with the closing thanks to your insight and foresight. I will continue to refer you to friends and family who are interested in real estate here in our beautiful community. As in prior experiences, I know they'll be treated to a professional experience with utmost care and concern. Your attention to detail never goes unnoticed by those you touch. Thank you Steve.

Lin Bercher

Steve and Lea were great to work with.

I very much appreciated their diligence and professionalism.

Tom B.

Beaver Creek is the best place on earth!


Gladymar Popcev

Working with Steve Cardinale and the staff at SSF is a wonderful experience; always helpful; do anything you request; must have an extensive portfolio of potential buyer.

We sold 2 interval ownership property in less than eight weeks, when sales were one or two per month in Beaver Creek. The paperwork is organized for ease of the customer, not the broker. All the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend Steve and all of SSF very highly!! Don Wegmiller

Centennial Properties

Excellent communication/ service

Vail 200, LLC

Steve Cardinale is an excellent broker and has the ability to make the customer feel they are being listened to and their property sale is important.

He is not pushy but realistic and a great guy!

Peg R. Callaway

Both Steve Cardinale and his assistant Lea Zugschwerdt were a delight to work with.

They were a help in deciding which unit (interval ownership) to buy, took pictures showing location and views and had provided a good indication as to the current market and prices. The entire experience was seamless and went off without a problem. I would highly recommend Steve, Lea and the firm to any friends.

Scott McFadden

Excellent service throughout from securing a viable buyer for a challenging interval to a secure and on time closing.

Colin R. McLean

My wife and I were staying at a local hotel and took a walk in Beaver Creek Village.

We stopped in to see If the Real Estate office had an extra FedEx envelope as I had to send my car keys back home. We ended up chatting with Steve about a timeshare and based on the service, style and professionalism we bought one the next day. I've never had a better real estate experience in my lifetime. Both Steve and Lea treated us as if we were buying a multi-million dollar home, not a Time Share and the level of communication and follow up was the best I've ever experienced from any service industry

Andrew Menkes


Cardinale was extremely professional. His knowledge of the area and property made the process seamless. Most importantly his promptness and availability to answer our questions made this the smoothest real estate transaction we’ve ever had. I’d highly recommend Steve to guide any buyer through the home buying experience. Thanks again Steve!

Andrew Thomas Dunleavy

Steve Cardinale and his Assistant Lea make the buying process Enjoyably Professional, Efficient and Fun !

! One could easily add additional descriptive words, but really no need. They are just a Pleasure to engage with.

Robert V. Horton

Steve Cardinale was very straightforward in his suggestions and recommendations: pricing based on comps and recent sales, modifications to the unit to make it more appealing, etc.

Very business-like, which I appreciated. Clear advice that reduced the endowment effect I had regarding pricing. His assistant Lea Zugschwerdt was very efficient with updates on feedback from potential buyers. The final transaction went very smoothly, with quick fixes for minor issues in the unit, clean-up, etc. Great team.

Cyrus Ghavam

I chose Steve Cardinale because he is with Slifer Smith and Frampton, which has an excellent reputation in the Valley and Steve has a great track record for selling condos at St James Place.

I was not disappointed. Although it took a while, he got the job done. Closing was quickly accomplished with satisfaction for everyone.

Stephanie H. Glenwright Trust

We have accumulated a lot of real estate transaction experience over the years personally and professionally.

Steve and his team, including the Title Office team where the purchase was finalized, coordinated with us so well, they have set a new standard of excellence and expectation for us. Simply put, we have been spoiled. They each take personal pride in how well they treat others, demonstrate a high level of care/attention and professionalism to the client, and thoughtfully attend to the flow of communications. We highly recommend SSF.

Steve is a very fine agent and person.

I would strongly endorse him to anyone purchasing a property in the Beaver Creek area.

Steve Cardinale, and the team at a Slifer go above and beyond to make selling and buying real estate in the Vail Valley a positive and easy experience.

Particularly for out of town sellers like us, the service the Slifer team provides is invaluable and greatly appreciated.

Shari Leventhal

We've worked with STEVE CARDINALE - and Lea Zugschwertz who joined Steve - in a total of six transactions over the past 18 years.

They are knowledgable, honest, fun to work with -- everything you could hope for when you are buying or selling real estate. I highly recommend each of them - and can't imagine working with anyone else in the Vail Valley.

Terry D. Goodson

...honest, reliable, and extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market. What was an added benefit, Steve turns out to be one of the nicest people I have dealt with in any business dealing...

S. Goldberg

Steve is the most diligent realtor with whom I have ever worked.

Ben Newhouse

Closings can be a real pain, especially in the fractional ownership realm.

Your professionalism and skills caused that not to happen. In addition, the continuous communication was fantastic which makes a retired Type A really feel comfortable! It was easy and painless. I really appreciate the work you did.

William Dean

Steve did a great job with a difficult seller.

He answered all of our questions and stayed in touch until our purchase was complete. Excellent broker and staff.

Bruce G.

Steve, I wanted to thank you for another great transaction!

You and Lea did an outstanding job marketing and selling my property in Singletree. I appreciate your diligence, constant communication, and outstanding support during the negotiations, and through to closing. This is the 3rd transaction I've done with you, and your professionalism is unparalleled. Again, I appreciate the great job. Look forward to the next deal.

Eric Hersh

We have been looking over the years for a vacation property in Beaver Creek.

We we finally found one we wanted the best choice we made was having Steve Cardinale assist us with the transaction. He and his assistant, Lea, are fantastic. We are from out-of-state and they made the transaction incredibly easy. They provided us with the information we needed and we able to work with our vacation schedule so it didn't even seem like we used much of our vacation time to work on making our offer. Their knowledge of the market made us very confident in our decision and guided us in a positive way. It was a great experience from start to finish. We would highly recommend their services when looking for your next property!

Jonathan R. Redwing

Well Done Steve at SSF - first class service !

William Sinclair

Working with Steve Cardinale and his team is a seamless, pleasant experience.

The decision to buy is a significant one, and Steve has continuously taken the time to help us find the right place. He understands individual buyers' needs, and does the research to make each search worthwhile. We think this third purchase in the Beaver Creek area is our last; but if we are ever in the market again, we would definitely want to work with Steve and his team.

Maureen and Barry S

I have completed five transactions with Steve and Lea.

  They are much more than excellent brokers, they are trusted partners and friends. 

Adam Ostmeyer

Great job

Robert W. Lare, Jr.

As a commercial real estate broker for 40+ years, I understand the importance of electronic marketing and the need for that to be quality and professional.

SSF has all of those qualities.

Barry E. McWhirter

We are extremely happy with everything at SSF and Steve Cardinale, our broker.

This is the second time we find exactly what we were looking for and all thanks to Steve. We are looking forward to creating many memories at Beaver Creek!

Stephane D. Rettally et al

This is our third purchase in the Vail valley with Steve at the helm.

He is professional, articulate, trustworthy, and frankly just a great guy! Always willing to go that “extra mile”. It is a true pleasure working with Steve. We would never consider anyone else.

Patrick Accomando

We were extremely pleased with Steve Cardinale and his professional support from Lea.

Great team!! They kept us informed and offered well thought out advise throughout the process. We will certainly look to them again .

Stephen & Diane Sims

Steve and his assistant, Lea, were wonderful to work with.

The entire process of selling our Beaver Creek unit was quick and seamless. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the area. If we are fortunate enough to return to the area we would definitely contact Steve first.

James R. Prairie

We were very happy to work with Steve Cardinale and his assistant Lea Zugschwerdt on our recent condo purchase in East Vail.

Steve has been working in the Vail Valley real estate business for many years, and his skills were apparent. He couldn't have been more knowledgeable about the area and market, or generous with his time to help us find, purchase and close on a wonderful condo. We were fortunate to be introduced to Steve and Lea and recommend them very highly.

Dick & Becky Strauss

We recently purchased a condo in Avon, and Steve and Lea made the transaction as stress-free and enjoyable as possible!

They are both very professional and extremely responsive, while at the same time calm, laid-back and friendly, which is a great combo for a real estate transaction! We really appreciated Steve's significant experience in and knowledge about the Vail Valley real estate market. He made us feel confident in our decision as first time buyers of a second home. We highly recommend Steve and Lea to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Vail Valley!

Cara and Bernie N.

Steve and Lea are extremely professional and the ease of doing business is nothing short of excellent.

Sergent Family Trust

Steve and Lea were amazing.

They made the entire purchasing process very easy. They were both extremely knowledgeable and professional. They really took the time to answer all my questions and work diligently on my behalf. I was really impressed with the entire process and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone wanting to buy or sell in the Vail Valley/Beaver Creek area.

Thomas S. Cornelison

I sold my townhome in Beaver Creek while I was out of state.

Steve, my broker, and his assistant, Lea, went above and beyond in getting my listing ready and sold. Especially because of Covid issues, Steve and Lea practically moved mountains to get everything done by closing. On the day of closing, I think Lea was replacing light bulbs and Steve was buying a lamp at Home Depot. They are trustworthy, reliable, and available to help which goes along way when you can’t set eyes on your property yourself. I highly recommend them.

JLM Paramount LLC

This is the second transaction that Steve Cardinale has handled for us.

We bought a starter condo a few years ago and decided to move up to a larger unit. Regardless of the transaction amount of the deal, Steve makes you feel like he is working exclusively for you. The marketing efforts to sell our condo were fantastic and we got a great offer in a short amount of time. Special thanks to Lea, Steve's assistant, who was there for us for whatever the need. This is definitely the team to call when it is time to buy or sell.

Christine Cooper

I'm 63 years old and Steve is one of the best realtor I've used

Robert W. Lare, Jr.

I worked with Steve Cardinale and Lea Zugschwerdt on a previous transaction, and appreciated Steve's candor with regards to pricing, and Lea's timely (and not excessive) emails on the transaction process.

I had the same experience on this second transaction. Very consistent, efficient teamwork by both of them. There are often unexpected hurdles that emerge before a transaction closes--in this case, there was a slight delay related to loan requirements, and then a malfunctioning stove light, noted on final walk through--and the team managed to address that, and all other issues, as we slid into home base.

Rufus P. Cedarhurst LLC

Fractional ownership properties can be hard to move.

Steve persisted and was successful.

John & Joan H. Zeiger

Steve is always helpful with our needs.

I look forward to continuing our relationship in the future.

Pamela W. Pressnell

This is the second time I have used Steve and Lea, both are extremely professional and stay in touch at every step.

Being a thousand miles away from the property I purchased I need someone to manage the transaction in my absence and they are always handle every detail. In addition to taking exceptional care of myself they always invite my two Golden Retrievers in for a treat. TM Lake Geneva, WI

Todd Martin

We bought our first unit from Steve Cardinale and liked dealing with him.

When we decided to buy a second unit we went right to. STEVE cardinale to purchase. When we decided to sell one of our weeks we had no doubt who we would go to because he is honest and always has a smile when he sees us

M. Kathleen Donizio

We worked with Steve both in transactions to buy and sell our property.

In both cases the process was very easy and Steve and his team were very helpful and informative.

Shawn & Morgan McConnell

Steve and Lea were great to work with.

I would choose them again.

David T. Pelz

I first met Steve Cardinale over 30 years ago when my husband and I bought property in the Vail Valley.

Very easy to deal with and took care of all the details given we closed without being physically there at the title company.

BRHM Holdings GP

Over the last 25 years, we have had the pleasure of being assisted in all of our numerous Beaver Creek and Vail Valley property purchases and sales by Steve.

The experience has been consistently stress-free, pressure-free and seamless. Steve's easy going nature coupled with his peerless knowledge of the market has been a tremendous benefit to us. Whenever we need any real estate information about the Vail Valley, Steve has become our #1 go-to person. We have no hesitation in recommending him.

Linda S.

This is my third transaction with Steve Cardinale, and he was outstanding regardless of whether the price was $230K or $1mm plus.

Just a good guy who knows the valley very well, and is always available. He never tried to talk us into a property, is never pushy, and offers excellent perspective on the various developments, because he was around when many were built.


We had a great experience working with Steve and his assistant Lea.

Steve is very knowledgeable about the area and the real estate market in Beaver Creek. I’d highly recommend him for your real estate needs.

Johannes Pruim

Working with Steve & Lea was not only a great experience but also a pleasure.

I can't imagine how can they be more professional and friendly. Steve's & Lea's advise was very professional and essential for my decision to list the property. Thank you both, Steve & Lea for your hard work and for guiding me in the successful sale of my property.

Alberto Vizcaino

Succinctly, Steve Cardinale and his Assistant Lea are Wonderfully Impressive at making the entire process ‘Silky Smooth.

If you are looking for a truly professional realtor, who really enjoys his work, in Beaver Creek I would highly recommend Steve Cardinale.

From our first contact via email, to our local tours of properties, to finally working on through our closing, Steve was utterly fantastic to work with. He never tired of our constant questions and needs. He was always very prompt with his responses and anticipated possible issues and questions. Our entire process could not have been more professional, more engaging, and more pleasant of an experience. I would highly recommend Steve and his assistant Lea as your buying or selling realty professional.

Blake & Laura Linders

We have known SSF and specifically Steve Cardinale for over 5 years now.

After around 6 successful transactions with Steve, I can confirm the high standards and professionalism he and his team continuously display. We will not be changing brokers any time soon.

Stephane Durand Rettally

Steve made the closing process of our place at Park Plaza go swiftly & efficiently.

Any questions were quickly answered to our satisfaction.He was as effective in our selling process as he was 34 years ago when he sold us our place at Park Plaza.

Richard Morton

Steve, Lea, and the rest of their group were fantastic to work with in providing a variety of vacation home options without putting any pressure on us to close on anything.

They kept the communication clear and frequent and provided us with excellent recommendations from the minute we walked into their office until the minute we closed on our vacation home. We are thrilled with our new home and the location specifically and can't thank Steve enough for his patience and guidance throughout the entire process.

Edward Eckart

Steve Cardinale's professionalism, ethics, integrity, knowledge of the real estate market is unmatched by anyone in the market.

He listened to what we were looking for and then directed us to various homes to look at. His team was very responsive during the entire process and even after closing. We could not have asked for a better home purchasing experience. Steve, Lea and entire team, thank you!!!!!!
