It’s an exciting time for Breckenridge Associates Real Estate, we’re celebrating our platinum anniversary in 2019 - we just turned 20!

When opening our doors on Main Street in 1999, Breckenridge was growing into what it is today - a bustling mountain town with all the attractions to make it a worthwhile destination any time of the year.
