To all, Happy New Year!! May 2011 be filled with Good Health, Joy, and More Peace around the World.

While we are still concerned about the overall state of the economy, 2010 was better than 2009 regarding real estate here in Breckenridge, Summit County, and other resort areas such as Aspen and Vail.
