The family apple farm and ski resort in Michigan enabled Heidi Bintz to start skiing at the age of three. A graduate of Michigan State University, with a degree in Agricultural Economics, she worked at Merrill Lynch as a commodity and stockbroker. With a desire to live in the mountains Heidi moved to Vail in 1985 and became co-owner of Kenny's Double Diamond Ski Shop and founder of the Double Diamond Ski Clinic for women. After selling, Heidi pursued the Real Estate world. In Heidi's eight years as a realtor in Vail and Beaver Creek she has been awarded Top Producer five times with Fuller Sotheby's International Realty plus two significant sales worldwide.
