Tracy Sutton is a true native Coloradan.
Her great, great grandparents homesteaded near Rifle Colorado, and her extensive family still resides on the Western Slope. Growing up in various Colorado towns, she graduated from Fruita Monument High School and, after visiting friends in Aspen in 1977, she knew that this was where she always wanted to live.
It took her a while to get there. She started out working production in the oil fields of Western Colorado, operating heavy equipment and driving trucks. She then moved into the oil field construction management business, working in Wyoming, Utah, Texas and Colorado, building oil rig shops. Moving to Denver in 1981 to study business and finance at the University of Denver, she was one of the first women to sell scaffolding, shoring and permanent installations for Glenn’s Scaffolding of Denver, providing services to several downtown Denver area landmarks such as the United Bank Building (the cash register building), the Tabor Center, and 1999 Broadway, as well as several projects in the then new up and coming Denver Tech Center.
Still looking to move to the mountains, she accepted a job at Apex Oil Company, who owned Copper Mountain, working in the construction management division building townhomes, condominiums and homes. After a major change in the oil business, she finally was able to make Aspen her home in 1986. Working in property management in Snowmass Village, she then got her Real Estate license, specializing in luxury rentals, working for Carol Ann Jacobson Real Estate, and then Houston and O’Leary real estate. She then moved into the position of Vice President and Managing Broker of Exclusive Vacation Properties, a ResortQuest Company.
Venturing out on her own in October of 2004, she started Aspen Signature Properties, recruiting an exceptional team of professionals who are dedicated to delivering the most extraordinary vacation experiences in Aspen and Snowmass. When she is not enjoying the beauty of Aspen, she relaxes in Key West Florida, and Lake Powell, Utah.

Kathie has just celebrated 12 years with Aspen Signature Properties. She is originally from Long Island and the Upper West side of Manhattan. A career move to Los Angeles landed her with an opportunity to develop ocean front residential real estate in Marina del Rey. The “North Ridge” earthquake was devastating, but it did not scare me! Timing is everything and my partner and I realized that no matter what, people love living on the ocean for all of the obvious reasons! In 1996, after a successful real estate venture in Southern California, she and her partner moved to Aspen and applied a similar strategy. She has since become involved in in property investment, development, sales and rentals.
Aside from keeping a keen eye on the real estate market, Kathie is a “7-time Century Rider” for the Susan G. Komen “Ride for the Cure.” She loves to do ceramic art, and from 1999 to 2006 she owned and operated the infamous “paint-your-own pottery” studio in Aspen called “The Kolor Wheel.”
Kathie’s Motto: Make every day a “kolorful day!”
