About Resort Realty

We are both from Dallas but have lived in Red River for several years, my husband has been here 30 years. We were both Red River ski instructors and we now own and operate Resort Realty in Red River. Our 25 year old son, his wife and our adorable grandson live in Dallas. My son is in the Air Force. Our daughter is attending the University of Colorado. Go Buffs! Enjoy our Mountain Home! Go Buffs!

Resort Realty purchased this house in 2011

Why Resort Realty chose Red River

Having both been in Red River real estate for many years we have had the opportunity to see so many beautiful houses but as soon as we visited the Smokey River Chalet, as guests at a party, we fell in love. As soon as it went on the market we knew we had to figure out a way to purchase this wonderful home. When you have the windows open you can listen to the peaceful sound of the river and when you are in the living/kitchen the back wall of windows make you feel like you are in a treehouse. I have never seen such gorgeous furnishings, the previous owner owned a high end furniture store in Dallas and he picked out the best and most expensive to furnish the house.

What makes this house unique

It is hard to beat the sights and sounds of the river and mountains from this home. You will also really love the open floor plan. It is perfect for family and entertaining

Everything you need to make your getaway special. I especially apprecieate the good customer service from the staff at Resort Realty. They are very professional, organized and still provide that friendly atmostsphere. Highly recommend this place. The perfect get away for entertaining while enjoying the views. Approximately 10 minutes to the town of Red River. Impeccably designed with beautiful furniture and finishes throughout the home.
