So How Do You List, Market, and Sell
Your Crested Butte Dream Home?

For the highest possible price, and in the shortest amount of time
- given the current market conditions...?

It seems like a simple task: "Let's go catch a big fish in that river and get a photo..."

Have you ever gone fly fishing? Seems like a very simple task - you look around Crested Butte and there are many rivers, and lots of trout...

How hard can it be to find, hook and land a really big trout in a river? But then you start to realize there might be more logistics, planning and skill than you previously thought… Do you need a fishing license? What fly fishing gear do you need? Where is the best spot? How do you get there? What are the current conditions - water temp, air temp, water flow, is it sunny or overcast, what bugs are hatching...? Should you use a dry fly or nymph rig? How will you present your fly, hook the fish, net the fish and get a great photo of you with the fish?

If you were wondering the answer, yes you do need a fishing license - and the East River, Taylor River and Gunnison Rivers all hold large trout in both public and private waters. A five weight fly rod with 4X tippet and a dry fly with a double dropper rig is generally recommended - but it depends on the time of year, the weather, the time of day, and the bug hatch... so proper planning is necessary, and hiring a fly fishing guide is highly recommended.

Similarly, it seems like a simple task: "Let's find a nice qualified buyer and sell our luxury Crested Butte home quickly..."

Without expert knowledge - you will only be able to get so far. I encourage my clients to look online and do research to see other homes in their neighborhood that have sold. Having an expert local real estate agent will be key in helping you get your luxury home sold stress free - for the highest price, and in the least amount of time.

I help my clients to sell their Crested Butte luxury properties quickly and for top dollar. Key factors to accomplish this task: pricing the home to the current market, making it easy for buyers to step into your shoes, removing certain items from the home, underestimating the condition of the home from the buyer's perspective, being ready to close and move-out quickly...

Customer service, hard work and attention to detail are the keys to Chris Kopf’s satisfied clients. I have been in your shoes... I have bought and sold Crested Butte properties as a Crested Butte second homeowner for 10 years before my wife Francene and I decided to move our family from Texas to CB full time in 2009.

I have represented over 350 satisfied clients with their Crested Butte real estate needs. I leverage my local knowledge, business experience and technology to help my seller clients to list, professionally market and sell their Crested Butte properties so they can move on to the next exciting chapter in their lives.

I have earned numerous awards including #1 Agent in Crested Butte. I have consistently been among the top agents in the Crested Butte market, and among the top 1% of all Coldwell Banker Agents in the world. I have been designated as a Global Luxury Property Specialist by Coldwell Banker – trusted agents serving the luxury segment of the market.

I am a Crested Butte Real Estate Expert - let me help you to sell your home for the highest price and in the shortest amount of time.
