Rick Mueller is an Eagle Valley resident who has made an indelible mark on the community of Edwards, Colorado through his work as a developer.
Rick’s foray into real estate development started as he followed his passion for recreation to a place famous for it: the Vail Valley. Mueller met his business partner, Bob Hernreich, in 1993 on a training ride for the Leadville 100 bike race. The two formed Remonov & Co., Inc—a tongue-in-cheek portmanteau for “recreational monsters of Vail” and purchased 35 acres in the “down-valley” area of Edwards.
Today, that 35-acres is the home to Edwards Commercial Park, Edwards Corner and Edwards Village Center. These commercial centers boast 250 retail, office, medical, and restaurants. The lower Homestead residential community is also part of that initial purchase.
Mueller started out as a University of Colorado scholar with a civil engineering and business degree before becoming the youngest real estate broker in Colorado in 1976. Upon embarking on a 134-unit project in his native Colorado Springs, the developer went bankrupt leaving Mueller to take the reins and become the contractor. Later, he dove into more development with the building of residential homes, numerous commercial centers and landmark projects including the Vista Bahn building in Vail, Colorado, as well as commercial and residential projects in Arizona. Since 1993, all his projects have been architectural award-winning ventures.
Mueller has been involved with Habitat for Humanity of Eagle and Lake Counties since 1999 where he served as board president for four years. During his unprecedented tenure with Habitat, the organization scaled from building one home every three years to building eight per year. He has also been an Edwards Future Land Use advisory member, a volunteer for the Walking Mountains Science School, and a donor to the Vail Valley Foundation.
With a pilot’s license and profound love of Colorado, Mueller worked throughout the state and met his wife Rita on the Silverton-Durango Train. Rick and Rita have one daughter, Makenzie, who is working in the family business.
The Muellers formed a transit advertising company, an entrepreneurial success story of developing advertising on transit in resort towns. Together, they grew it to 22 ski areas and 10 resort airports serving ski resorts in Colorado and the western USA.
