During a company-wide meeting on Wednesday, January 12th, Breckenridge Area Manager of Sales, Mike Scott, stated: “We stand out from property management companies, because we are more than just one phone call. We offer all inventory in the market.” RMVR’s specialty in acting as a one-stop-shop is demonstrated by the various services they offer, including lodging, concierge services, lift ticket purchases, transportation, and ownership opportunities in the Rocky Mountains. “Our conversation, and our knowledge, is more valuable,” he said.
