“Focus, Knowledge and Experience”
I have been in the real estate services business in the Breckenridge markets for many successful years and will be here for many more. This longevity and confidence comes from working with many buyers and sellers, and their recommendations to others that result in repeat and referral business that keeps me productive and successful.
As a full service Breckenridge real estate professional, I work with buyers, sellers and investors in realty transactions spanning all price ranges and property types.
Residential Single Family
My residential single family services connect buyers with sellers every day, and I do it with professionalism and a total dedication to my clients. This property type is the majority of my market transactions, but by far not the only one in which I have expertise.
While condominiums are residential, they’re a very different market focus, and I am an expert in evaluating condos and helping buyers and sellers to cope with the special financing and homeowner concerns for this property type.
Multi–Family Real Estate
Investors are great clients for me. Multi–family properties are a very unique market. The detailed return on investment and valuation calculations investors need to evaluate properties for rental are second nature to me.
Whether it’s a shopping mall, a small office building or a restaurant space, I’m your commercial property specialist. Contact me for your commercial property needs in the Breckenridge real estate markets.
Land is a very special property class. It’s relatively easy to show a gourmet cook a wonderful commercial kitchen in a home and see their eyes light up. It’s more of a challenge to help a buyer or seller to realize the potential in a piece of land. I’m the best at it in the Breckenridge real estate markets.
Stu represented me and my wife in the purchase of our home in Breckenridge. We consider ourselves very very lucky to have met Stu and to have had the good fortune of working with him. Not only is he a gem of a guy, he took the time to get to know us and our interests which led to a the perfect place for our family. Stu was extremely knowledgeable about the Breckenridge real estate market, which led to a deal that worked for both buyer and seller. Stu was our advocate through the entire process, right up to the close. Since the purchase, Stu has become a friend and has continued to stay in touch and be helpful as we get more acquainted with the Breckenridge experience. I don¿t think you could find a better broker or advisor for your property needs in Breck.
As an out of state client (1200 miles away), we found Stu to be very patient and ALWAYS available. His knowledge, professionalism, hard work and dedication were evident throughout our search and eventual purchase. We had a simply outstanding experience and would highly recommend Stu to anyone contemplating a real estate transaction in Summit County.
Stu has been our go to Realtor in Breckenridge for almost 14 years now. When we have been buyers he is most efficient at only showing us properties that meet our criteria. He has a vast knowledge of the market inventory as well as the current trends for the many different small areas that make up the Breckenridge market as a whole. All of the information he provides is critical in making the right decision to find a property that hit our goals whether they were financial, lifestyle or both. Most importantly to us is there is never any sales pressure from Stu to buy one place or another. When we have sold properties, Stu¿s guidance is beyond compare. We all have a notion of what our property is worth and it is usually inflated. Stu knows the limits of what the current market can accept for pricing and if you want a solid listing that will attract not only lookers but offers, Stu knows the sweet spot. The great thing is Stu never had any issues with us saying, no we think it is worth more and should be listed at a higher price. After a period of time with it listed at ‘our’ price with very few looks and zero offers we adjusted price to what Stu said the market would accept and within a few weeks we had many showings as well as a solid offer which then concluded in a successful sale. And wouldn’t you know it, his pricing model was right on the money when the appraisal came in. Stu has great suggestions to increase curb appeal as well as how to arrange the interior so his listing photos will pop. He knows the current market inventory very well and what other places our potential buyers are comparing our place to. Knowing that he was able to put together an aggressive listing package that had buyers making their offer on our place and not the competition. The perfect end result in my book! We could not be more pleased with Stu’s abilities and service through the years. He will be the realtor we call for our next transaction and we could not recommend him more!
Stu Van Anderson has been our realtor for 6 real estate transactions and has consistently delivered high quality customer service. Stu not only pays attention to details, but ensures that all closings are completed on time with no surprises. We will continue to use Stu for our future real estate dealings due to his professionalism.
I have worked with Stu for nearly 20 years on various real estate transactions. His knowledge of the area, relationships throughout the county and years of experience in real estate is an asset on every transaction. I highly recommend his services to anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate in Summit County.
My relationship with Stu began 25 years ago when we decided to move from Denver to Breckenridge. We started looking at condos, then moved to land and ultimately he helped us purchase a local coffee shop and a house! For the next several years Stu was there as we learned the ropes on wells, septic system, propane, etc. He steered us to the perfect neighborhood and we loved our house and land. After 25 years in the house, it was getting time to think about selling. I had not seen Stu in several years and happened upon him at the Post Office! We talked and he and Jen ended up putting the house on the market and helping me purchase a downsized place. We were successful in both areas – selling and buying and I couldn’t have been happier with all their help. Between the two of them, they basically did everything but write the check! If they are around for the next transaction, I will definitely use them. From the very beginning, we were attracted to Stu because of his easy personality. He was actually interested in introducing us to Breckenridge, not just making the sale. I felt the same with the purchase of my new place. At no time was there ever any pressure. Jen graciously took me around as did Stu. Once we decided on exactly the place I wanted to purchase they put the word out and found a place before it hit the market! That is good real estate work. Both Jen and Stu are good friends and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking at real estate in Breckenridge!
Such a pleasure doing business with Stu at CB. He made it so easy and stress-free from the listing, the showings, negotiations and through the closing. When you live in Virginia and are traveling abroad during most of the process, it takes someone with Stu’s expertise to make it a smooth and successful transaction.

I had the privilege of growing up in the mountains of Northern New Mexico. My family moved to Angel Fire from Iowa when I was 10 and and started a log home company and construction company. Being around my family's business sparked a love of real estate.
I currently split my time between Angel Fire and Taos. I have so much love for the area and diversity in real estate that it offers, that I decided to make it my career.
