After travelling throughout Africa, India, the Middle East, Europe, and Central America for 5 years, Janice Ciampa-Bauer, a native of Boston, arrived in Vail in 1976 to visit a friend, and never left. Watching a sleepy ski town grow to its present stature, she was one of the early Real Estate pioneers in the area, having been active since 1978.
A linguist with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maine and the I'Universite d'Aix - Marseilles, France, Janice has combined her expertise in French, Spanish and German to welcome foreign as well as American property owners into our community.
Janice has earned continuous recognition for her hard work and dedication to excellence in servicing listors and sellers. In her first year, she was named Vail's "Rookie of the Year" and later served on the Board of Directors for the Vail Board of Realtors. While working out of the Vail Bridge Street office, she was named the #1 Producing Broker for the Vail Office and was presented the Eagle Award, recognizing her as one of the top brokers within the company. Since then, Janice received the "Best Listor" award twice for her production at Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate and has averaged $15 million in annual sales and recently she was given an award for being the Broker who sold the most Real Estate in all neighborhoods of the valley.
Believing continued self-improvement is key to professional success, Janice pursues and achieves numerous professional designations and affiliations and regularly attends Real Estate conferences and continuing education. She is a CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), obtained by advanced study and consistently high production levels, and a FIABCI member (International Federation of Real Estate), both of which allow her expertise to utilize her linguistic and real estate talents with sellers and buyers.. In addition, she has recently become proficient as a CNE-Certified Negotiation Expert and RSPS- Resort and Second Home Property Specialist.
Although she enjoys a wealth of repeat business and customer referrals, Janice has developed her niche as one of Vail's top listing agents and regularly maintains an extensive and varied listing inventory.
A Vail homeowner since 1978, Janice resides in Lake Creek with her husband Zdenek and two sons, Andreas and Bjorn. Actively involved in the community with her church, local schools, sports teams and art community, she celebrates the active local lifestyle with skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking, mountaineering and boating with her family and friends.
