Jim Vlach has been in the real estate/new home construction industry for over twenty-five years.  Prior to entering the real estate industry, he received a Bachelor’s in Business and completed a Master’s degree in Business Administration with a major emphasis in Marketing in Tampa, Florida in 1991. He initially started in residential resale, but quickly branched off into semi-custom/custom home development, being involved with over 250+ semi-custom homes being built.

From 1996-2008, Jim was President/Founder of CPI, a spec custom home building operation. Of the 250+ semi-custom homes mentioned, he created and oversaw more than 20 homes in various areas of El Paso and Summit Counties, with price points that fell between $850,000 – $1.9 million. Since the recession, the plans have been restructured with current desires pertaining to layout realities, falling within a price point of home on lot in the vicinity of $800,000 to  $1,300,000, fulfilling present demand.

At present day, Ranch Living is completely about catering to purchasers who desire main level living with upper-end features throughout. One look at our beautiful front facades, and you will see the additional attention to detail that we put into each and every ranch home, that you will not see in our competition’s homes offered at a similar price point.

At Ranch Living, we evolve with our plans as time goes on. We take the time to design a great floor plan (not just a good one) with an even greater facade. Why have a really good floor plan and then a front facade appearance that’s sub-standard, or more specifically, unattractive and poorly proportioned?

Some of our competing building entities never take the time to change their “good” floor plan into a great floor plan, simply because they don’t want to take the time. We do, and you benefit!
