About Paradise Realty
Paradise Realty is a boutique, independently owned, real estate company. We have access to the same MLS marketing resources as the large corporate companies, but our smaller size gives us advantages larger companies do not have. Being small allows our brokers the one-on-one time that is needed in order to get to know our clients needs and best serve them. We don't pass off clients to inexperienced assistants, instead we personallly make sure the clients needs and contractual obligations are met from start to finish. We have a long history of satisfied clients, see a few of our testimonials below!
Founder & Broker
Dave Bittner was in real estate long before he moved to Summit County back in 1979. He has worked for many top real estate firms, has managed offices and has trained many new realtors. He stays busy in the community in his spare time whether its acting as the president of The Continental Divide Land Trust, helping to preserve open space, volunteering as a director of the Lake Dillon Fire Rescue Department, teaching dog obedience or delivering meals-on-wheels. He is known for his matter-of-fact honesty and knowledge of the area.
Holle Vliet began working for Paradise Realty in 2017. She is a second generation broker and rare Summit County native. She has a sharp eye for details which comes in handy in contract negotiations. She also has a background in feng shui and enjoys helping owners make their listings stand out. When not helping clients realize their dreams, you can find her exploring the incredible botany and geology of Summit Countys mountains, mushroom hunting, working in her garden, ski jouring, teaching local classes about geology, seed saving, and botany or making her locally famous folk remedies and herbal honeys for Mountains of Plenty.

"I had no idea about real estate. Holle talked me into presenting a back-up offer on a place I really wanted when it went under contract in 24 hours and had mulitple offers. I thought all hope was lost. I have no idea how she did it, but somehow I got that house, and I love it so much!" - Nic
