See what some of our recent clients had to say!

“I have bought and sold several properties in Breckenridge over the past 30 years. Mark Thomas has been my realtor for each and he has been an exceptional agent for me. Mark is extremely knowledgeable, hard working and dedicated to his clients. No one, I repeat, no one will work harder for you, achieve a better result for you or be more candid and honest than Mark. I recommend him without reservation.”        ~ D. Damore

 

“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. He and his team have earned my highest recommendation.”        ~ C. Rabenhorst

“We couldn’t be happier with the service & results we received from Mark, Cody & Spencer Thomas at Paffrath & Thomas! They did a fantastic job coordinating the sale of our home and taking care of every detail in the process. We strongly recommend Paffrath & Thomas when buying or selling a home in Breckenridge. They are fantastic!”        ~ B. McBride
