Chad Cremonese joined the Fortius team in early 2015 to spearhead the project sales at the Two Rivers Village planned residential community. He brought with him a diverse background in residential real estate, construction, and property management. Buyers and Sellers all benefit from this experience when working with Chad and Fortius Realty.

Hailing from Pennsylvania, Chad was born, raised, and educated there. The allure of Colorado beckoned long ago; he’s been a longtime resident in the Vail Valley since 2003. Many people know and recognize Chad from his past as a local restaurant owner. However, it is his knowledge of new construction and the local real estate market that brings value to his customers.

Since joining Fortius, Chad and Mike Pearson identified the need for a specialty real estate brokerage focused on new home community sales. Fortius Realty has grown to head the sales for the communities Two Rivers Village and Aspen Ridge. The team of Kristen Miller and Chad Cremonese are transaction leaders in the market. From hard work and experience Chad is an expert on new home sales in the Vail Valley. Feel free to contact Chad to learn how he and Fortius Realty can assist you.
