Location, Location, Location

In a beautiful mountain town like Breckenridge, the location and views are treasured commodities in themselves. What speaks to you?

Architecture + Quality = Perfection

Expect one-of-a-kind design and quality craftsmanship for your Breckenridge luxury home. In Breckenridge, luxury homes often reflect the area’s natural beauty, but that doesn’t mean you have to embrace a rustic design. Top architects in the area can incorporate steel beams, premium flooring and custom woodwork with a modern flair.
Secondly, luxury homes use the natural beauty of the landscape to their advantage with large windows and spacious outdoor living.

Indoor/Outdoor Mountain Living

Stunning indoor and outdoor entertaining space is a must in a luxury mountain home. Go beyond a basic backyard grill with an outdoor kitchen with high-end appliances, a fire pit designed by local artists or an all-season water feature. Native plants and extra seating will round out your luxury yard.

Pamper Yourself – And Your Guests

What’s a luxury home or vacation retreat without a spectacular space to unwind and restore after enjoying everything the Breckenridge area has to offer? Custom baths in the master – and guest – suites in Breckenridge luxury homes may include huge steam showers, traditional or infra-red saunas, fireplaces at the foot of sunken tubs, and of course heated floors. Look for skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows in bathrooms to make the most of Colorado’s 300 days of sunshine and mountain views.

Homes for Heroes

We all have a cause that is dear to us. Ours is a program call “Homes for Heroes.” I received a call from a realtor in Denver. She asked me if I was interested in participating with this program by working with a man that was trying to sell his property here in Summit County. She did not want anything in return but simply wanted to make sure this client was taken care of and would receive all the benefits that I had to offer as a real estate agent. I knew immediately I needed to be a part of this so I joined. Our heroes are extraordinary people and they deserve all that we can offer. I can’t wait to meet my next client!

Since 2009, Homes for Heroes, Inc., has helped over 23,000 heroes save over $37 million on their real estate transactions, sold over $4 billion in real estate to heroes, actively partnered with 2,200 like-minded real estate and mortgage professionals who’ve joined in the mission, and donated over $500,000 to heroes in need through the Homes for Heroes Foundation.

Homes for Heroes, Inc. is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate, mortgage, and local business specialists; committed to providing easy ways for heroes to save on a home. Shortly after 9/11, Homes for Heroes, Inc. was established to give back to firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, military (active, reserves & veterans), healthcare professionals and teachers for all they do.

Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 12.14.36 PM

Condo sales in Breckenridge have slowed down in 2016. The reason for this is a low inventory. The demand is still high.This is the lowest the inventory has been since 1998 and that is the farthest back I can go with my available data. So what we do have listed is selling in a matter of days if it is priced right. This graph shows that even though the number of sales are down, if you want to purchase an investment property, Breckenridge has the lion’s share of the county market. This is also why investors purchase in Breckenridge.
