The McSpadden Team

The McSpadden Team Profile

The McSpadden Team lists and assists with luxury real estate, vacation homes, land sales, commercial sales, first-time home-buying, new development sales, short sales, and bank-owned homes.  A “team” of brokers is so powerful compared to one as we assist our buyers and sellers through a successful real estate transaction.

Steve and Hillary McSpadden have helped over 1,500 families and individuals realize their dreams in the mountains. The majority of their business has been repeat and customer referral, and the McSpaddens credit this to responsive service and sharing their infectious passion for the Vail lifestyle.

Steve has resided in the Vail Valley for over 40 years. Launching his real estate career in 1980, Steve operated a successful real estate and property management company.  Hillary has contributed to the wide success of two real estate companies as Managing Broker.  Their combined experience and business savvy creates a dynamic partnership, offering a range of services that can only be achieved with their team approach.  Steve’s long-standing relationships, and abundant knowledge of the Vail Valley and its history make him a tremendous resource to his clients.  In addition, Hillary’s  negotiating skills and detailed expertise with real estate contracts are invaluable.

Steve ski raced at the University of Colorado, and Hillary, also a collegiate athlete, played Division I tennis for the University of San Diego.  Hillary graduated in International Business and later earned an MBA from the University of Denver. Hailing from southern California, Hillary moved to the Vail area in 1991.

Bob Dorf originally hails from Princeton, New Jersey.  He attended The Lawrenceville School, and then got his college degree from Middlebury College.  Bob was one of the first real estate agents in Vail, having gotten his license in 1971.  He has been with Slifer, Smith and Frampton since 1983.  Bob brings a wealth of knowledge and customer relations that can only be gained through more than 40 years of selling real estate.  You don't last long in our business unless you are good, and Bob is one of the best. 

Heather Dorf Rawlings wasn't born in Vail, but only because there was no hospital here when she was born.  She grew up here in the Vail Valley and, like her father, attended The Lawrenceville School and then Middlebury College.  After graduation, she worked in Mexico for over a year, and is completely bilingual.  After returning to the Vail Valley, Heather got her real estate license, and has been working alongside Bob since 1999.  Heather is married to an award-winning photographer, which ensures that your home will be portrayed in the best possible light.

Bob and Heather were some of the first to employ the “team” concept, back in 1999.  Working as a team for close to 20 years, they served both buyers and sellers and gained a reputation for honesty and integrity, which all comes back to a customer-centric business model.  The decision to merge with the McSpadden team was an easy one for Bob and Heather, as we all share a passion for the Vail Valley, our profession, and most importantly, we share an uncompromising dedication to our principles.

Trevor Spinks was raised in the Vail Valley, and real estate was an ever-present influence during that time; his mother has been selling resort homes in Beaver Creek for over 20 years.  He attended Arizona State University, graduating with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Media Industries.  During college Trevor worked in marketing and sales for an online startup company.  After graduating, Trevor was an actor in Los Angeles, becoming a member of the Screen Actors Guild. 

With the mountains calling, he returned to the Vail Valley in 2012.  After  working  for Slifer Smith & Frampton, in an administrative role, Trevor joined the McSpadden Team in 2015 to actively sell real estate as well as support the thriving business of the team via transaction management, marketing, and technology.  These days, if he is not helping clients find their dream home he will be on the mountain skiing and snowboarding, or exploring the west on his motorcycle.
