In 1991, Tye Stockton, a former equity options trader on Wall Street for Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch, decided to trade his financial career for a new life in Vail; a place he had grown to love during his many trips to the Rocky Mountains.
With his new "local" status, Tye quickly embraced the Colorado lifestyle and, in his free time, became an avid telemark skier, fly fisherman, mountain biker/hiker and white-water rafter.
As the son of a general contractor in his native, Tallahassee, Florida, Tye soon found himself naturally driven toward the world of real estate. For over ten years, he managed commercial properties in the Vail Valley, including the Vail Professional Building and Cascade Crossings Center, In 2006, Tye brokered the sale of both buildings to the Vail Resorts Development Company, who now has the site slated for the proposed Ever Vail project.
Tye is at home in the world of real estate, with his understanding of transaction execution and market knowledge, business savvy, and attention to detail. Among the sea of local realtors, Tye stands out not only as a dedicated professional, but as someone who engages with people and makes the business of real estate enjoyable, informative and effortless for his clients.
With approximately $85 million in real estate sales between 2010-2011, Tye has proven himself as a true market leader and local real estate professional. He currently represents the Vail Resorts Development Company as the lead listing agent for the new Ritz Carlton Residences-Vail, and has the additional privilege of representing approximately $50 million of privately-owned, luxury, real estate properties in the Vail Valley.
Tye holds a B.A. in Economics and Finance from Florida State University. He met his wife, Brielle, in Vail in 1997 and they were married on Jekyll Island, GA, in 2001. They have two boys, Zachary and Ryan.
