NADIA ZEMANEK

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

RENTAL SPECIALIST | IATAN, ACCREDITED TRAVEL AGENT | ASPEN, COLORADO


Nadia, loves working with people and helping them find their perfect rental. She is in charge of daily operations for Five Star and oversees the monies, contracts and communications with both the homeowner and the renter.  She will make sure you have an excellent experience during the entire stay.  Born in Germany and raised with an unmistakably Midwestern heritage, Nadia soon found her way to the west —this time, to Aspen, CO. After serving in the United States Air Force, Nadine moved to Aspen in 2018. Prior to her move, Dallas, TX was home for over 10 years. She came to us in Aspen with a passion for the city's lifestyle and its beauty, but there are a few things she did not leave behind: her strongly instilled Midwestern work ethic and welcoming nature. Nadia began working in real estate in 2002. Her varied career included a stint with ZRS Management and she has experience developing, managing and selling real estate from the ground up.
