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 Bill Holm 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.



Bill spent his early years in Vail, and grew up skiing the back bowls and enjoying off piste adventures. The family relocated to the front range where he finished high school and then went on to college.
After completing his degree he worked in the entertainment industry on the coast for several years. Having seen enough of the L.A. freeways he returned to his roots in the valley to start a career in residential real estate, helping locals and second homeowners find their dream homes. Soon after, He began working on projects, and managed sales teams for several successful developments in Eagle County including Miller Ranch and Sky Legend.
New homes and developments took him to other mountain communities including Crested Butte, the Roaring Fork Valley, and Grand Junction before heading east to land on another new project in Denver.
After a successful run in the big city he found himself heading back to Vail to reconnect with the lifestyle and community he loves. Bill went back into residential sales in the valley in 2017, and in in 2019 joined Fortius Real estate working on new home sales. His knowledge of the valley and construction are a great asset to the company and our clients. He truly enjoys helping people find the perfect fit for their family.
