Both Todd and Mariella have lived in the Vail Valley since the early 90’s and understand the unique mountain and down valley communities from East Vail to Eagle.
Black Diamond invoices monthly. An owners credit card or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) information must be on file. If payment is not received within 14 days, the CC or EFT on file will be charged. Black Diamond Enterprises carries general liability and fleet insurance, as well as workers compensation insurance. Certificates of Insurance are available upon request.
If the home is rented either short term, seasonally or long term; Black Diamond will inspect the property prior to the guest’s arrival.
Within 24 hours of the guest departure, Black Diamond will again check the property.
If the property owner utilizes the property on a regular basis, Black Diamond does not enter the property to inspect it unless the owner provides written request to do so.
If the property is unoccupied for two weeks or more, we recommend that Black Diamond perform an interior and exterior inspection (“walk through”).
Black Diamond will communicate with the property owner each time the property is entered, whether by staff or contractor. A text message, phone call or email including photos will be provided.
Black Diamond will make recommendations regarding window washing, carpet cleaning, power washing decks and walk ways and/or landscaping, but will not move forward with any additional services until written notice is received from the homeowners. If a contractor is required for work, Black Diamond will schedule and provide access to the home for estimates.
