About Cara

The ideal blend of Arkansas southern hospitality and true Colorado grit, Cara Connolly brings intellect, charisma and local area expertise to her clients across the Vail Valley. Leaving a successful banking sales career in Austin, Texas, the stilettos could never keep up with her love of the outdoors. On the invitation from a childhood friend, or maybe it was bit of a dare, Connolly arrived in the Vail Valley in 2003 just in time to wrap up her first ski season.

Connolly’s entrepreneurial spirit began at a very young age as she watched her father with his own small business succeed in sales, patent inventions and commercial real estate endeavors. She saw that there was a winning recipe between finding new solutions to everyday dillemas, hard-work and genuine relationships working with those around her.

Cara has been a part of the East West family of companies since she arrived in the Vail Valley more than 20 years ago. She has worked her way within from office manager, to marketing specialist, to starting their private home luxury rental division, to business development and now to her true passion of full-time real estate sales.

Cara Connolly is the current 2024 Chair of the Vail Board of Realtors and serves on the Financial Audit Committee and Government Affairs Committee. She is also a member of Western Mountain Resort Alliance and a Colorado Association of Realtors Director. Connolly received the Rising Star Award from Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate in 2021.

She is married to her husband, Patrick and together they have 2 children. They enjoy spending time fishing, mountain biking, skiing, camping and paddleboarding together. Cara volunteers her time in the community with her daughter’s ski racing team, serving as team manager for her son’s hockey team as well as being a member of The Vail Church.
