Meet the Team

Colette Kraatz, Broker Associate
Colette Kraatz

It was a leap of faith that brought my family to Crested Butte from Okemo, VT after my husband Michael transferred here with the Mueller’s when they purchased CBMR in 2004.  I had never even stepped foot in Colorado before arriving that September, but once we got a taste of the Colorado lifestyle, we have never looked back. With 300 days of sunshine, bluebird skies, and snowcapped peaks, we happily left the grey New England winters behind and embraced all that Colorado has to offer. I count my blessings every day that I get to live here.  As a Broker Associate with Crested Butte Resort Real Estate, it is deeply satisfying to share this beautiful place and help others find their own dreams.  Give me a call and let me show you the Crested Butte I have come to know and love and am lucky enough to call home.

Here is what some of Colette's clients have to say about her...

 I would like to thank Colette and her team for helping us with the purchase of such a beautiful home in such a beautiful place. Having never bought a second home we were a bit apprehensive of what it would entail to own a home 1000 miles away from our primary residence. She managed to get us a great price and to take care of all the paperwork promptly. I could not believe that we did most of it through email and a few phone calls; we even closed while we were back home!! More importantly Colette was enormously helpful after the closing with the transition process. We are now settled and getting ready for our first summer in our home in Crested Butte. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about owning a piece of this beautiful part of the country not to hesitate. Folks like Colette help make this dream a reality. Flavio A.- San Antonio, TX

Colette was our realtor. She did a terrific job representing me and my wife in the purchase and sale of our second home in Crested Butte. I know she had other clients, but she always made us feel like we were her only client. Colette made us feel like family. In conclusion, Colette is an outstanding person to have on your side.  Veronica and Reynaldo - San Antonio, TX
