Preparing to Sell Your Mountain Property

Find Your Right Fit


A condo provides tons of advantages like flexibility, accessibility, and easy access to property management. Out of sight, out of mind. If you’re the outdoorsy type, the one who is more interested in exploring than staying in, a condo could be a great investment for you. Our condos have more than enough room to lay your head at night, but not more than you need!

Happy Clients

Cody Thomas was wonderful to work with. He is professional and extremely knowledgeable about the area and the market. He was available when we needed him always responding quickly to emails and phone calls. Always willing and offering to go the extra mile. He wasn't pushy or overly aggressive but was on top of trying to help us find the right property for us. Once we found the property that worked for us he helped make certain that the process was easy. We would have never imagined that buying a house from out of town would be so easy and it was because of all the time and attention Cody put in to make sure everything went smoothly. He helped get us connected and worked through all the details. We highly recommend him and use him again for any future real estate needs!!

We worked with Dennis at the recommendation of our previous realtor who doesn't do business in Summit county. Dennis was extremely responsive, timely, and happy to help with any of our issues, concerns, or questions. He always made time for us even amidst his busy schedule and his follow up was outstanding. From someone who was buying their first property in Summit County, Dennis made the process easy to understand and simple from the buyers perspective. Additionally, he engaged with the seller's agent and was persistent when needed to keep the ball moving. Would highly recommend Dennis and would use him again.

Mark, Cody, and Spencer did a phenomenal job marketing and selling my Breckenridge home. Mark was diligent in establishing the appropriate listing price and secured a strong offer and contract in just over 2 weeks of the listing going active! While I was out of state, Mark and his group went the extra mile to help prepare the home, handle items needing repaired, managing the closing process and closed the sale in less than 30 days after the contract was executed. They even helped to move items out of the home when I couldn't be there. I can't imagine a better group to work with in Breckenridge or Colorado for that matter. I highly recommend Paffrath & Thomas!

Working with Grant McGahey was a real pleasure. His deep knowledge of the area and the market was extremely helpful as we went through the search process together and was skillful in getting us the best deal when we found the right place. We had several complications during the closing phase. We were a thousand miles away and Grant handled each issue calmly and professionally to get us through the process. He went above and beyond to ensure everything was ready to go the day we closed. We've bought a number of places through the years and worked with many realtors. Grant is one of the best.

Mark was an absolute pleasure to work with. Mark is more than your run of the mill realtor. He is so knowledgeable of the area, and homes in general. On top of being an excellent realtor, who really knows the market, we felt as if we had a Breckenridge ambassador who could tell us all about the town, its history, and the lay of the land, which allowed us to make a well informed decision. He is very construction and development savvy, which helped us understand the differences in quality of the construction and neighborhoods of the homes we were looking at. We cant say enough about how pleased we were with the whole experience of buying our second home in Breckenridge. Mark's knowledge, easy going demeanor, skill, dedication, and overall likability is hard to find these days. We found a great new house, and friend!

Kim McGahey helped us 21 years ago when we purchased our second home in Breckenridge. He is professional, knowledgeable, dependable, and responsive. Over the years, Kim became more than our agent; he became our friend. When it was time to sell, we turned once again to Kim McGahey and his associate, Grant McGahey, to list and sell the house. They took care of everything and made long-distance selling as easy as possible. We highly recommend both Kim and Grant for all your real estate needs.

Outstanding, terrific, second to none! John Swartz exemplifies the rule of 10,000 hours! Yes it’s why he’s been in business since 1971! Professional, on top of every detail both large and small making it to the finish line/closing table! Shout out to Austin & Stephanie who manage the office! A true world class team. My closing was handled in 30 days! When results matter JOHN SWARTZ is number one! Thanks guys.

If you are looking for a real estate company that truly knows the market look no further. Paffrath and Thomas has been a phenomenal asset for us over the years as we have bought and sold properties in Breckenridge. We have used Luke Paffrath as our real estate agent for five transactions. His company has been an anchor in the town for decades and we will continue to use him for any future endeavors! Happy Buying/Happy Selling!

Tanya K.

So nice, friendly and most importantly knowledgeable. Jeff and Luke Immediately produced a top quality presentation of our property, they networked within their vast contact database, and had an offer within 90 days. More importantly it was a good match between us and the buyer making the transaction so smooth and easy. Just incredible. Thank you so much for your professionalism.

Spencer Thomas not only sold our Breckenridge home the very first day on the market, he did almost everything else for us! He is a shining star in the real estate world. We were in a hurry to leave our Colorado home and we ran out of time and he literally cleaned our home, fixed all the problems we encountered during our inspection, and even helped us sell the items we couldn't move to our new location. He was always available to answer any questions we had. Spencer even arrived early to our property when there were workmen (septic,electrical, and trash). We can say that Spencer Thomas also became a friend that we will always keep. If anyone needs an exceptional agent, Spencer is your man who always wear a smile and goes way beyond just selling or buying your home. The photos he took of our home for the listing were way beyond exceptional and we feel that these pictures are what sold our home the first day on the market. Spencer is much more than just a real estate agent. He's a "get er done" man.

Todd Johnson is supportive, respectful, sincere, efficient, and someone whom I would highly recommend for selling property. Several years ago, my husband and I purchased land in Warm Springs to build our dream home. After my husband passed away unexpectedly, I was left with having to sell this special property from 1800 miles away on my own. I was at a loss for where to find a trustworthy realtor but a friend in Colorado highly recommended Todd. He patiently walked me through the procedure, answered my many questions, gave advice when I asked for it, and sold my property for a very fair price in a short period of time. I was able to complete all transactions from my home in Maryland. He and his team have earned my highest recommendation.
