Carling Bennett moved to the Vail Valley in the Fall of 2009 from the North End of Boston where she worked in finance at Morgan Stanley. Originally from North Conway, NH, which was recently voted the #1 ski town in the USA, you could say the mountain lifestyle is engrained in her. Early successes in ski racing lead Carling to attend Holderness School, an elite New England prep school in New Hampshire. From there Carling received a BA in Political Science and Economics at St. Lawrence University.
Shortly after moving to Vail, CO, Carling began her career with Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate (SSFRE) where she spent her first five years working in corporate marketing, gaining invaluable advertising and technology expertise. From there she joined one of SSFRE’s top real estate teams as a licensed assistant. During her first two-and-a-half years of real estate sales, she participated in over 100 transactions exceeding $105,000,000 of sales volume.
After experiencing an incredible introduction into the burgeoning Vail Valley real estate world, Carling took the leap as a full-time broker with SSFRE at the Park Hyatt office in Beaver Creek Village. Carling’s tenacity and hard work prevailed, closing over $14,000,000 of sales volume in 2018. She was the youngest broker ranked in the top 25 for the 3rd quarter of 2018 and received the prestigious title of “Rising Star” at the company’s annual awards gala. With a background in both finance and marketing, Carling is able to provide clients with an unparalleled level of service. By utilizing cutting-edge technologies, and implementing unique print and web-based marketing strategies, her clients benefit from a hands-on experience that is unmatched. Carling thrives off of guiding people through their real estate journey and introducing them to the incredible Vail Valley lifestyle that makes this such a special place to call home.
Carling lives in Singletree with her husband Dane and two black labs, Milly and Sadie. She loves skiing, hiking, happy hour, on-mountain picnics, live music and Colorado blue bird days!
