About Cara Connolly

Growing up in a family who owned a handful of commercial properties in the south, Cara Connolly was exposed to real estate at a very young age. Buying, selling and leasing with many hours of painting and sweeping large buildings, Cara began to understand at an early what hard work and creating genuine relationships will do for your life.

Connolly attended the University of Arkansas and then moved to Austin, Texas to begin a career in financial sales. In 2003, Cara decided to trade in her suits and stilettos and headed west to Vail, Colorado on an invitation from a childhood friend.

Cara Connolly joined the East West family companies shortly after moving to Vail and started with the corporate marketing team of Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate. In 2008, she became licensed to buy and sell real estate in the state of Colorado. Soon after, Connolly was asked to launch the luxury home rentals division of East West Hospitality. Over the past 17 years, Connolly has worked with the top luxury home owners and rental clientele in the Vail Valley.

"I love our Valley. I am raising my family here. This is our home. It makes me so happy to share this amazing place with others" says Cara Connolly.

Cara Connolly lives in Eagle, Colorado with her husband Patrick, daughter Ellie Fay and son Walker. You can usually find them at the hockey rink, climbing gym, skiing, biking on anything with wheels, camping off the grid, picking blackberries in Ireland with family, navigating museums in France, on the beach in Mexico and Spain, swimming in rivers, watching Texas and Arkansas football (hopefully not against each other), everywhere there is a soccer ball, on a jeep trail, behind the end of a fishing pole, hanging out with friends on hut trips and reflecting locally at the Vail church.
