So... You want to know if I am a good fit for you?
I would want to know too! There are so many real estate agents in every market - many inexperienced, many "part-time" or unresponsive... I have helped over 350 clients to buy and sell single family homes, condos & townhomes and land in the Crested Butte area - check-out the reviews below, and contact me with any questions! Thanks, Chris.
"We recently engaged Chris to sell our Mt. Crested Butte condo. He could not have made the process easier. From pricing, to marketing, to negotiating, to facilitating improvements requested by the buyer, Chris was superb.
Chris's personal and business connections in this community are deep and dependable. He knows & loves the community; he understands the challenges. Living in the valley has been a terrific choice and will continue as long as we're able. Afterwards, we'll call Chris."
- Robin & John Norton
"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!"
- Jenny & Matthew Birnie
We loved working with Chris Kopf. He helped us sell a home in CB South and purchase one in downtown CB.
He did a really nice job of understanding our goals, and then achieving them. He was very easy to work with, responsive, and very professional. He did a really nice job of helping us negotiate throughout the process, using his extensive knowledge of the local market.
- Ian Billick & Jennie Reithel
Fully deserves his reputation as one of the top agents in Crested Butte.
Went above and beyond to help us find, close, and then most importantly, start life as new homeowners in CB.
Top class pro.

Where do I start - incredibly knowledgeable about the area, great advice on all aspects of our purchase - site as well as contract, super available and responsive, and very patient as we worked on our project on and off for over a year.
Chris helped us buy land that met an evolving and very narrow set of criteria and he nailed it. He is simply superb. I'd want him in my corner whether buying or selling
- Kevin & Cynthia O'Brien, Dallas, TX
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.
- Jim & Adria Strife
"What a pleasure it was to work with Chris Kopf. He was always organized and ready to go.
He made us feel like we were his only client and the only real estate deal he was doing -- and I know that he was working on a number of sales at the same time. Whatever we asked him to do got done immediately and accurately.
He is extremely knowledgeable of the Crested Butte market. What a professional and what a gentleman. We now count Chris as a friend!"
- Clayton & Marnie Taylor, Oklahoma City
"Chris is a machine!!
Once he gets the deal rolling, he never gives up, like the energizer Bunny!!
Chris's attention to detail is first class, and he goes out of his way to make sure he covers EVERY SINGLE aspect of the transaction.
I have been a property developer for 30 years, and have dealt with hundreds of agent in my career, I would rate Chris with the top 2 agents ever."
- Peter Jago (Owner Nordic Inn)
"If you are not using Chris Kopf for your real estate needs in Crested Butte, you are making a mistake. The name Chris Kopf is synonymous with Crested Butte real estate and for good reason. Besides being an absolute professional in everything you would expect a real estate agent to be good at, Chris knows everything about, and more importantly, everyone in Crested Butte. When we were selling our condo, he was able to find the perfect buyer, not as much through the usual channels (MLS, realty websites, etc) but through his personal contacts and intimate knowledge of the town and its people. Once the buyer was identified, Chris handled every aspect of the transaction (price, inspections, scheduling, closing details, etc) absolutely seamlessly. We couldn’t be happier with our experience working with Chris. So I’ll say it again, if you’re not using Chris Kopf for your real estate needs in Crested Butte, you are making a mistake!"
- Glen & Deb Gentile, Denver, CO
We met Chris years ago and have stayed in touch all those years until the perfect property for us popped up on one of Chris’s helpful email alerts. Chris called me back quickly, we discussed strategy, and he ran over to the place to get us on a FaceTime video tour. We made an offer that day and closed a month later. There were expected hiccups along the way, but Chris’s experience and calm approach helped us navigate through to a successful purchase. Thanks Chris!
- Russell & Shari Newhouse - Dallas, TX
"We are so grateful to Chris for helping us find the mountain home of our dreams. He was so knowledgeable about the process and really helped us every step of the way, from mapping out expenses and budget, looking at a variety of options, talking about renovation and upgrade options, and finally closing the deal quickly and efficiently. He even got us set up with a great property manager."
- Megan & Tony Uerling, Houston, TX
"Chris worked a year trying to find the ideal house for us in Crested Butte. He is a great guy and made the whole buying process enjoyable and efficient. He works very hard to be the most knowledgeable and professional realtor in the area. I would definitely recommend him for any buyer or seller in the Crested Butte area."
- Rusty & Sylvia Olsen, San Antonio
I met Chris many years ago while sitting on a bench & eating ice cream outside Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. During this casual encounter I liked him immediately & kept him in mind as a future realtor. After 20 years in the valley when we finally decided to sell we selected him over several other candidates. The reason was because he was very knowledgeable about the market and presented a well organized marketing plan.
We were very happy with Chris & would highly recommend him.
- Tom & Katherine Johnson
We could not have asked for a better real estate professional to help us purchase a home in Crested Butte.
We tried to purchase a property during the ultimate seller's market; we made offers on property after property but didn't succeed in securing a contract until offer number seven. Chris' deep knowledge of the market, including his extensive experience as a seller's agent, helped us refine our search criteria and the nuances of our offers, ensuring that we submitted competitive offers while avoiding paying too much. This process ultimately resulted in a contract on the home we now own and love, purchased at a fair price. Chris never grew impatient with our process and he was always a steady, reliable partner throughout our search.
Chris is a pleasure to work with and his deep roots in the community meant that he was able to recommend superb professionals for the loan, appraisal, inspection, and more.
He radiates love of Crested Butte and we really appreciate that he gives back to the community through his many volunteer activities, including organizing the 'Big Duck' rubber duck charity race and hosting a fundraising event for the venerable and dynamic Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory (RMBL). There is no question who we will partner with on any future real estate transactions in Crested Butte!

"Chris' outstanding reputation in the Real Estate Industry was evident from the very beginning of our experience. A true Professional in all aspects of his business. Chris' use of state-of-the art Marketing technology was instrumental in the sale of our home in less than a month. Chris has NO OFFSEASON, as our home was sold in October. We highly recommend Chris as your ELITE Realtor."
- Richard & Marsha Cole
"We worked with Chris to buy a second home in Crested Butte. His knowledge of the area was extremely helpful since our primary home is out of state and we weren’t sure which area would be best for us: on the mountain, in town or in Skyland. He was very patient (as we spent 3 years looking for the perfect place for us) and responsive during the entire process – he made it feel as if we were conducting business in the same town rather than from two different states. Additionally, he is very knowledgeable. We highly recommend Chris!"
- Erin & Rob Addison - Los Angeles, CA
It has been my pleasure to have Chris Kopf represent us in the successful sale of our home at 296 Coyote Circle and reaching our goal in the sale of the Nordic Inn Bed & Breakfast. Chris used a creative and effective marketing campaign on both properties that exceed our expectations from start to finish. His tireless approach to serving the seller and and finding the right buyer, made all the difference through the entire process. Whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Chris if you are seeking a real estate professional who is effective and enjoyable to work with."
- Ken & Kim Stone
"Simply the best realtor in this market (just look at his listings). Professionally handled all issues you would expect a broker to handle and many more that were out of an agent's scope of services."
- Lance & Sara Abbott
"Chris provided wonderful service and information for my recent purchase on Mt. Crested Butte. He was able to quickly get back to me with information to help me with my selection. He has elaborate reports that narrow down the specifics for the type of property I wanted. He wrote the book on buying and selling in Crested Butte. I was glad to have his resources guiding me through the process."
