Aspen Real Estate | Blake Appleby

“The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.” —Peter Drucker

Blake Appleby brings an unusual and compelling mix of expertise and character strengths to Aspen real estate to benefit you and your search for the perfect residential or commercial property.

Over the span of two decades, he conceived and aggressively grew Cornerstone Property Management, a premier property management company that specialized in the highest level of personalized services to the luxury market. The recent sale of this widely respected business has enabled Blake to venture into the dynamic Aspen real estate market. He intends to bring to real estate the same qualities that marked his success; a high degree of integrity, conscientious attention to detail and first-hand knowledge of the life-style needs and wants of discriminating owners. As a business owner himself, he also understands the complex commercial dynamics that govern this unique community.

Blake built his reputation on confidentiality, trust and integrity with relationships spanning New York to Los Angeles and internationally in Mexico and Hong Kong. It is of utmost importance to him to act with discretion and in the best interests of his clients. As a result, many of his Aspen client relationships have lasted for generations. Success with long standing clients includes relationships with family offices, business managers, private banks and the high‐end insurance markets.

While managing a broad variety of multi-million dollar properties for discriminating owners, Blake amassed an unusual body of knowledge about superior home selection and maintenance. This knowledge ranges from state-of-the-art electronic home systems to a network of proven service providers. Blake brings hundreds of existing relationships with high‐end homeowners, realtors, architects, and builders to the table and is comfortable serving the affluent market with quick response time and creative solutions.

Blake has a marketing degree from Baylor University, is a native of Houston, Texas and has called Aspen home since 1991.
