• Since Nov. 23, Pitkin County has recorded six residential sales of at least $5 million and 17 worth at least $1 million, according to property records.

• Longtime real estate firm Aspen Snowmass Properties/BJ Adams and Co. officially joined the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices real estate brokerage network last week. The firm is now called Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Aspen Snowmass Properties.

• With Boogie’s Diner now history after Leonard “Boogie” Weinglass sold the downtown building for $27.5 million earlier this year, the old eating spot now has a pop-up tenant this season. Nest Aspen recently opened with high-end furniture and home accessories. Meanwhile, the building’s new owner, Thor 534 East Cooper Avenue LLC, an offshoot of New York-based Thor Equities, introduced plans last month to expand the building’s first and second floors. If approved, it would vacate city-approved rights to build a penthouse. Penthouses have since been banned from being built in the downtown core.
