• Since Monday, eight properties in Pitkin County sold for at least $5 million, including a home at 300 Lake Ave. in the West End that fetched $9.16 million, property records show. A newsletter from Realtor Chris Klug, emailed out Friday, says the same property will soon be relisted.

Snowmass Village has recorded $150.4 million in total property sales through August, more than $35 million better than the $115.3 that was rung up for the first eight months of 2014.
• Aspen Snowmass Properties/BJ Adams & Co. announced Thursday that it is affiliating with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, which is based in Irvine, California, and a subdivision of Warren Buffett’s giant holding company. The local firm’s new name: Berkshire Hathaway Home Services/Aspen Snowmass Properties.

No word if the home’s a rent-to-own property, which is being advertised for $9.9 million.
