However, John’s business skills with developers, buyers and sellers remains unique and his life pursuits a contrast to his career.
JOHN’s ENVIRONMENTAL PURSUITS
John Helmering is an expert in sustainable land development and real estate in the Rocky Mountains. Long before “Green” was fashionable, John was helping his developers establish riparian corridors, trails and open spaces that not only appealed to homebuyers but also helped protect the environment. When selling homes to his clients, he watches for homes that have high standards of building integrity and low cost energy efficiency.
Throughout his career, John has worked on seven different developments that established open space, riparian corridors, trail systems, and adjacent protection to the Eagle River and its tributaries.
He has participated in designing fish habitat and restocking plans on private stretches of Brush Creek, and helped create seasonal “Catch and Release” only waters and spawning closures on the confluence of Lake Creek and the Eagle River. John has acted as managing partner for a ski-in-ski-out development where the team established forested open space, a trail system and pine beetle mitigation. He has worked on the restoration of settlers’ cabins, watermills and artifacts unique to the history of the Colorado Rockies.
In 2012, John helped with the land purchase, annexation and implementation of the largest renewable energy project in the Rocky Mountains which runs on forrest waste and beetle kill and produces 10 MW of electricity annually to supply power to over 10,000 homes in Vail, Aspen and Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
John now has joined the Eagle River Park Citizens Committee to help raise awareness locally about the project and raise additional funding that will not be covered by town tax dollars. He hopes to contribute in a way that protects the Eagle River and its corridors for generations to come. His passion for the Vail Valley and Rocky Mountains is beyond compare.
