I am a broker associate at Breck Life Group - eXp Realty. I have lived in New Orleans, Tampa, Atlanta, and Italy. For nearly 20 years, Breckenridge has been my true home. In early 2019, I finally realized my dream of permanently setting full-time roots in Breckenridge.

Prior to calling real estate my full time profession I was successful entrepreneur: I have worked with domestic and international organizations in Italy, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and South Africa developing community programs and technology to address local housing issues and foster sustainability. I practiced dispute resolution though my work with an aggressively expanding law firm and developed multi-level and multi-media marketing strategies, that places an emphasis on client first services.

My expertise and attention to detail is unparalleled and far exceeds brokering a “transaction.” I embrace the responsibility that comes from working with a select clientele, which expect excellence and demands keen business acumen. I will tackle the business of maximizing your home’s value, while tirelessly searching for a property to meet your family’s unique dreams, draft documents to protect your interests, and negotiate aggressively to meet and exceed your needs. One of my most recent clients described me best, “ Christian represented us recently on the buy side of a complex transaction that included many unexpected hurdles and a challenging negotiation process. He was calm and clear headed in the face of difficulties and we felt confident our interests were being protected by Christian and his colleagues. I’d recommend him highly. You might not fully appreciate all the behind the scenes support provided by your agent. When a transaction gets challenging, you suddenly realize how much having a good agent matters. You can feel confident with someone like Christian Vales in your corner.” 

In my free time, I can be found volunteering at the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC), where I help adaptive skiers enjoy the mountain to the fullest, working on classic Land Rovers, or hiking with my husky Luka.

“Working with Christian was an absolute joy! Christian took the time to listen to our real-estate wants and needs, and provided immeasurable guidance in helping us to narrow our search, offering insights, items and factors to consider, and he was with us every step of the way. His customer care is second to none! He is bright, knowledgeable, thoughtful, rationale, easy-going, fun, and he became not only a confidant during our real-estate purchase, but a family friend. I cannot overstate how highly I recommend Christian and the The Breck Life Group. They are simply master-class and we will definitely be using Christian for future real-estate transactions in Summit County!” - Michale Smith on Google

“Working with Christian Vales for our new home purchase has been AMAZING. Being out-of-towners, we were overwhelmed and unsure of who to trust. We are incredibly thankful for Christian, who really took care of us throughout our experience. From showing us around the area on two separate trips to incredible responsiveness whenever we had a question, Christian was friendly, helpful, and thorough at all times. He has gone above and beyond for us, helping us find exactly the right place, negotiating well, and guiding us through contracting and closing. Christian and Breck Life Group deserves a sixth star - five simply isn't enough.” - Lauren Feehrer on Google

“Tremendous - Trusted Advisor - Christian Vales. My wife and I recently purchased our first home in Breckenridge and we engaged Christian Vales as our real estate agent and he completely exceeded our expectations. We have had several realtors over the years and we have never had as positive of an experience as we did with Christian. He was astounding with his market knowledge and insights about Breckenridge, Summit County and the broader knowledge of the State of Colorado. He provided insights on regulations and market trends. His real estate expertise was clearly evident and tremendously insightful as we scanned the market for over 2 years and honed in on our top purchase priorities. Christian was highly communicative when needed and responsive, yet not annoying and salesy. His professionalism, care and genuine personality enabled us to establish a trusted, long term relationship. He is unique and exceeded all of our expectations. We unreservedly recommend him and will undoubtedly engage him on our next purchase!” - Leo on Google

“Christian Vales is, above all, a superb listener. We recently transplanted from New York and he helped find us our dream home in Frisco, a gathering place for our children and grandchildren. We decided to rent on the front range at first and take our sweet time looking for the right mountain home. Christian showed us many neighborhoods and homes in Summit County over the course of 18 months. He knows the pros and cons of every area. We never felt rushed or pressured. He listens more than he speaks. When we pulled the trigger and made an offer, Christian eased the process with his expertise, calm demeanor and unerring professionalism. 5 stars indeed!” - John Murphy on Google

“Recently purchased a home in the Breckenridge historic district. Anyone familiar with the area knows it a complicated real estate market. Christian has been in Breck several years and knows this area well. He helped me in several ways. Understanding my home value compared to others in the area. Engaged a contractor in advance of the sale so I could estimate my total cost and project what the home would be worth post remodel. Negotiated a very good price. Christian was responsive during the entire process. What impressed me most is he continue to be of assistance after the close. He has a strong network of people he trusts (contractors, etc). That is extremely valuable as some contractors can be very problematic. Simply put Christian was great to work with and I cant recommend him strongly enough.” - Chris Schreiner on Google
