Take Aspen By Air with Pat Marquis

There’s nothing like a bluebird day in an olive green Eurocopter in Aspen, Colorado! Thank you, Aspen Heli Charters for taking the doors off and flying us over our listings and helping us show off the less traveled parts of our dramatic landscape. We saw the glacier-fed lakes and ponds as well as shoot through snow drifts as we crested over snowy cornices. We have more photos from the trip to share. Send us a message if you’d like the full tour or stay tuned here for lots of exciting updates!

Meet the Families from GiveBack Homes

Home Building Update from Giveback Homes

In October 2015 GIVEBACKHOMEPatricia Marquis committed to helping build homes for families in need. Patricia is dedicated to giving a portion of her commissions to Giveback Homes for every sale she makes. October was a great month for Patricia, who closed on three properties; 918 S. Mill Street (represented seller & buyer) and 315 Lake Avenue (represented buyer). As a direct result Patricia has fully funded the building of three homes for three different families in Haiti, in a continued effort to restabilize the island after the 2010 earthquake. Funding a home for a family means securing a future of safety and stability.


Justinvil Family GIVEBACKHOMEIn honor of her buyer of 918 S. Mill St., Patricia fully funded the building of a home for Justinvil and his family.
 Justinvil works with his sister as a food vendor at the local market in Leveque. He lives with his girlfriend Marita, his three stepsons, Lovens (12), Dalanto (5), and Kendove (4), and his daughter, Darlene (8 months). Marita and Justinvil hope to marry soon, once they have a stable home.

Rosealva Family GIVEBACKHOMEIn honor of the seller of 918 S. Mill St., Patricia fully funded the building of a home for Rosealva and her family. Rosealva and her sister Roseni have stuck together all of their lives. After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, they lived together in a thin tarp tent provided by NGOs. Once Roseni had a son (now 4 years old), the hardworking vendors pooled their money together to rent a home near the tent slum.

Dieudires family GIVEBACKHOMESIn honor of her buyer of 315 Lake St., Patricia fully funded the building of a home for Dieudires and his family. Dieudires and his wife Joseline are the proud parents of 6 children, ages 5 – 19. He works hard making sandals that Joseline sells in the market. They make a priority with their meager earnings to send their children to school.
