Meet Charley

After landing in Vail in 1987, Charley Viola enjoyed a 20-year career in hospitality and real estate where he managed the operation within The Lodge at Vail under Orient Express Hotels, and later, Vail Resorts. As a part of this elaborate role, he also managed the real estate operation in The Lodge at Vail for both companies.
Charley kicked off his real estate career in 1994 and while seasoned in some of the finest Vail Village properties, he has since expanded into more sundry real estate realms such as commercial and trophy ranch properties. 
Subsequently, Charley developed Independence Management in 2008, a luxury property management business overseeing all functional aspects of the Lodge at Vail Condominiums, a mountain multiplex, as well as The Chalets at The Lodge at Vail, all with a combined value of over 500 million dollars. 
Amidst a successful career in luxury real estate sales, resort administration, property management, and consulting for LACA for over 15 years, Charley was asked to take over the condo association and perform an elevated capacity of HOA and lodging duties. Successively, he founded the short-term rental company, Lodge at Vail Condominiums in 2021, with the goal of offering luxury accommodation rentals coupled with a superior degree of guest service – a product unique to the Vail market.
Intellectually dexterous, humble, and hilarious – Charley leads Viola Real Estate Firm, LACA HOA, Independence Management, and Lodge at Vail Condominium Rental Firm with style, humility, and exuberance.
