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.

Crested Butte Second Homeowner are focused on freedom. 

We are bold enough to push the limits in order to create a better reality for our families.

We are not risk takers or speculators but rather we live by a core set of principles. We are the producer revolution.

We GET TO work remotely.

We want more than just money or a house in the mountains.

Money is our tool to Create a lifetime of awesome memories, and affords us the opportunity to give back and make an impact. 

Our Crested Butte Home is a vessel we fill with family, friends, get-togethers, dinners, parties, laughter and fun. Our home is where we plan for tomorrows adventures, and celebrate our special times together. 

We are committed to building a life that matters. A life driven by purpose. A life fueled by passion. We are committed to being part of the Crested Butte community - to be plugged-in. To give back with our time, skills, effort or money. We build lasting relationships and friendships. 

Have you ever heard the saying “money can buy you a lot of things … but it can’t buy you happiness”?

Creating the life of your dreams for you and your family takes hard work, sacrifice and planning …

Knowing what freedom means to you starts with asking yourself … "How can I spend more quality time with my family and friends...?"


Recognizing The Need for Connection

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.
