New York, New York 
(February 2, 2021) — Christie’s International Real Estate is proud to announce the opening of its company-branded brokerage in the renowned luxury ski destination and four- season resort of Breckenridge, Colorado. Christie’s International Real Estate, the real estate arm of the world’s leading art auction house, continues to open brokerages in luxury enclaves to assist top brokers and their clients with a shared passion for the collection of great works of art, jewelry, watches, wine and the most extraordinary homes around the world.

Mr. Jansen said, “After successful entries into the Aspen and Denver markets, Breckenridge was the clear choice to continue the Christie’s International Real Estate expansion throughout Colorado. Breckenridge and Summit county markets are world class ski destinations as well as summer playgrounds, which are sought after by Christie’s clients throughout the United States and globally. We are thrilled to have this powerhouse team of established top producers to help launch Christie’s International Real Estate in Breckenridge.”

Since the Jansens collaborated with Christie’s International Real Estate to open and co-own the Aspen brokerage in January of 2019, which includes Snowmass, they have spearheaded new Colorado businesses in Denver and now Breckenridge. Notable achievements include:

  • A Castle Creek estate in Aspen, featured on the cover of Christie’s International Real Estate magazine and listed for US$26,500,000 sold.
  • A Cherry Creek estate in Denver, listed for US$8,950,000, also sold in January of 2021.

The Aspen brokerage more than doubled its production within a year, posting US$131,000,000 in 2019 to more than US$305,000,000 in 2020.

The Jansens joined Christie’s International Real Estate in 2012 as the start-up business, Coastal Properties, with 12 agents in Tampa, Florida. The brokerage, which they still own, grew to US$6,000,000,000 and more than 300 agents in just eight years. Alex and Laren Jansen, proven successful in building businesses leveraging the Christie’s brand, earned back-to-back Affiliate of the Year honors at the network’s Owners Conferences in Buenos Aires  and Paris.

They fully appreciate that exceptional client care is of the upmost importance to our company and are expert at leveraging the power of our global brand to win top listings, close sales and recruit top agents.”
