Karyn Contino

I have been selling real estate in Breckenridge for such a long time that I almost picture my husband and I arriving here in a covered wagon. It was unpaved streets and more open space than buildings on Main Street. 90% of the now existing buildings were not yet built.

For 32 years, I owned and operated my real estate business, Executive Resorts Real Estate, as well as a rental management company, Executive Resorts Rental, Inc. My husband, Sal, and I had a perfect partnership, I handled the purchasing of land and Sal would do the construction and rental management side. In addition, for many years I wrote and published a paper called the Breckenridge News. The paper gave me the opportunity to learn and explore all aspects of Summit County. I have transitioned my love for the newspaper to my blog, www.brecknews.com. I post daily about the Summit County real estate market and neighborhood updates, events, restaurants, recreational happenings, and photos of local creatures, both 2 legged and four. I guarantee you’ll learn things that will maximize your enjoyment of Summit County and all of its surroundings. I am now a broker with Slifer Smith & Frampton and I absolutely love what I do. Helping families invest in a lifestyle and creating memories is irreplaceable. Whether you are selling or buying, I would love to share my expertise and foresight with you.

I have been awarded a CRS designation for high sales and ongoing national education in 1985, less than 6% of the agents in the nation have earned this prestigious designation, and I have also been rewarded a CRB, certified residential broker, a similar award for Broker managers, which I no longer use. Lastly, I have earned a Master Certified Negotiation Expert, and I believe I am the first in Summit County to have done so. I have lots of referral letters on my website, www.buybreck.com, from both buyer and sellers who have been more than happy with my services. I hope to add you to that long list.

I'd almost given up hope trying to find a suitable home in Breck. Moving from Wisconsin didn't help. We looked at 40+ homes and ended up buying one that wasn't even listed. If not for Karyn's contacts and influence, we never would have found our dream home. There is just no substitute for the experience, professionalism and hard work that she brings to the table. I wouldn't consider another realtor in Summit County.

— Satisfied Buyer

Karyn found us our ideal property, at our price point, and it proved to be an excellent investment. On top of that, she made sure we knew our way around her city, and helped us locate services we might need. She is a delightful, intelligent lady, who has decades of experience. If we were ever to buy again, I wouldn't go to anyone else!
