If you’re a regular at The Little Nell’s Ajax Tavern, chances are you know the longtime local behind the bar. Rob Calfee has served up the iconic resort’s five-star service along with his own signature energy since relocating from Vail for the position in 2015.
His 20-year career is rooted in the highest standard of hospitality with stints as a sommelier (he’s Level 2 Certified and still studying) at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs to serving as the beverage director at the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa in Beaver Creek.
While he’ll continue to hold court a few days a week at Ajax Tavern, Rob has joined the team at RE/MAX Signature Properties located in downtown Aspen.Real estate is in Rob’s blood, too — his mom has more than 30 years as one of the top-producing brokers in his hometown of Pinehurst, North Carolina. In search of a new challenge that could expand upon his extensive tourism experience and passion for working with people, Rob recently competed his studies and certification from the Kaplan Real Estate Education program.
Intensely studying the trends of the local market over the past year, Rob is knowledgable on neighborhoods from Aspen to Snowmass to Basalt and focuses on residential transactions for buyers and sellers, sharing insight from a true local’s perspective.
Citing the unparalleled outdoor lifestyle matched with high profile arts and cultural offerings throughout the year, Rob can’t imagine living anywhere else in the world than Snowmass Village. As a health and wellness enthusiast, he spends his rare off-time mountain biking, paddling and snowboarding. Rob also donates his time to build homes with the Roaring Fork Valley chapter of Habitat for Humanity and on cleanup initiatives for the area’s trails.
