My wife Francene lived in Texas for 25 years and were Crested Butte Second Homeowners for 10 years. We moved to Crested Butte and have been full-time residents here since 2009. My brother & sister-in-law Rick & Ingrid, and Francene's brother Ed & sister-in-law Carrie are Crested Butte Second Homeowners.
We are all part of the Crested Butte community. I appreciate the tremendous value of the Crested Butte Second Homeowners who are a big part of the engine of the local economy, and who's benevolence has made big impacts in the community. A few examples:
- The Adaptive Sports Center building
- The Center for the Arts building - "92% of funding came from Crested Butte Second Homeowners" - Jillian Liebl - Executive Director
- The Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley
Crested Butte is a great Ski Resort Town that would not be what it is today - if not for the Second Homeowner community.
I have many happy clients who were or are local owners, real estate investors, banks, and developers... but I have built my real estate business around understanding and providing superior service to the Crested Butte Second Homeowners. I work with couples that are committed to impacting their families through lifestyle choices. I help them understand their goals, timelines and focus on what is most important. I help my clients to understand their options, and to make informed decisions.
Chris Kopf became committed to connecting second homeowners together when he started as a real estate agent.
Kopf has hosted events for Crested Butte Second Homeowners since 2009 - both in Dallas, TX and in Crested Butte, CO - bringing speakers to the Second Homeowners to discuss important topics affecting the CB community.
In 2022 Kopf hosted The Crested Butte Summit event - An Evening of Gunnison Valley Non-Profit Awareness And Second-Homeowner Acknowledgement. There were six local non-profit leaders who all spoke on stage for 10 minutes about how they are making an impact in the community, because of the support from second-homeowners.
