Chris did an awesome job getting our house sold, keeping us updated on all the deadlines and negotiating the various details the seem to come up. We would highly recommend Chris and would absolutely list our next real estate transaction with him.”
MATTHEW & JENNY BIRNIE
“Chris is absolutely the most outstanding real estate broker in Crested Butte and the Gunnison Valley.
He is extremely thorough and patient–it took us over a year to make a decision on the purchase of our home. Chris demonstrates the highest standards of professionalism–he is prompt, responds to all requests immediately and negotiated all aspects of our contracts with ease. Chris is very detail oriented and his service did not end when we signed the closing paperwork. He was in touch throughout the following month to make sure everything was going well and we were happy with the purchase of our home. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone I know looking to sell or purchase a home!”
JIM & ADRIA STRIFE
“I have not met a more knowledgeable or harder working real estate agent than Chris Kopf in over 40 years of purchasing primary and second homes. No one knows the CB market better than Chris, his market research is unmatched, he is incredibly responsive, and he has a huge network of providers for all aspects of purchasing and living in CB.
We purchased a second home while living in NC, and our search was so well facilitated, it was like we lived locally. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a home in the Crested Butte area.”
GARY & BETTYE KEISER, MT. CRESTED BUTTE
“Chris was very responsive to our needs, but not pushy. He is really on top of the real estate market and worked hard, using open houses, newsletters and print ads to Sell our Crested Butte area home.”
BECKY & TOM MITCHELL
“We chose Chris Kopf as the listing agent for our home for the following three reasons:
1. Chris has deep and broad knowledge of the Crested Butte valley real estate market as evidenced by his demonstrated success in the realtor business, and by the extensive research and analysis that goes into his monthly news letter to keep his clients informed.
2. Due to his marketing skills, Chris has access to potential local and out of state home buyers.
3. Chris is extremely personable and gracious. Our home in Meridian Lake Park subdivision sold in a few weeks due to the overall excellence of the listing and Chris’ home buyer client knowledge.
The entire process from initial discussions to closing was handled smoothly with minimum disruption or issue along the way for both us as the sellers, and for the new home owners.
If you are a seasoned home owner, or if you are new to the home buying or selling process, we highly recommend that you consider Chris Kopf as your real estate professional.”
