Michele Hart and Jim Schlegel

Michele Hart

Michele Hart has been a Real Estate broker in Breckenridge since moving here in 1992. She came to Summit County, having recently graduated from Denison University and had planned to spend a year in the mountains. Michele fell in love with the community and ultimately chose to make Breckenridge her home and raise a family. As one of Breckenridge's top producing agents, Michele provides exceptional service to both buyers and sellers. She has been recognized over the years with numerous awards and has served on the local board of realtors as both a Breckenridge director and the association treasurer. She believes that service needs to extend far beyond the transaction itself and continues to help her clients who inevitably turn into friends. "Personal referrals are the absolute core of my business", Michele says, "I couldn't do it without the support of my loyal clients. I thrive on personal relationships and feedback from happy clients." Michele has experience working with first-time homebuyers, second home owners and seasoned investors and has sold well over $300 million in her career. She enjoys skiing, hiking, biking, tennis and time with her daughters.

 

Jim Schlegel

Jim’s passion is family and the outdoors which landed him in Breckenridge 27 years ago. In addition to coaching hockey, skiing with his family, fishing and biking Jim has maintained a healthy career with Slifer Smith & Frampton since 2010. Jim has been in the top 10 performing brokers in the company in the last five years, including being the second highest performing broker in the company this year.

Jim moved into real estate in 1998. After running a successful property management company, Jim put this experience to work and uses the same attention to detail in his real estate transactions. Whether it is finding the perfect lifestyle, selling a property, upgrading to a larger space or investment for his clients, Jim listens and tries to deliver the result his clients ask for. Jim offers a calm demeanor with a Midwest work ethic that is adaptable from first time homebuyers to multi-million dollar second home acquisitions.

"Michele is the best. She sold our vacation home in Breckenridge in less than 6 days for a great price. She also found us another property to purchase closer to town. We live out of state so really needed someone there to be our advocate and keep up with all of the details. Michele did exactly that. I would recommend her to anyone and will use her again next time we are ready to buy/sell a home. You will not be disappointed if you chose Michele as your realtor."

"Michelle was a pleasure to work with. I live in Michigan and was purchasing in Breckenridge, CO. She listened to what I was looking for, tailored searches for me, and when the time was right walked me through a short list of properties.
When I made an offer, Michele helped me understand the market and we placed a winning bid.
Michelle was critical in making sure the pre-closing activities were finished and we had an easy closing as a result.
I would recommend Michele to everyone and will use her again when I'm in the market."

"Michele was invaluable to us as we purchased our house in Breckenridge. Being from out of state, we needed someone who not only possessed intimate knowledge of the local market, but also possessed the organizational and interpersonal skills to handle most of our transaction while we were remote. Michele treated us like we were the most important clients she ever had even though we certainly were not the most important. By the time we closed, we were so comfortable with Michele as our realtor that we started searching for an income property. We would trust Michele to help us with any real estate transaction and can't say enough positive things about her our experience with her as our realtor."

"She is extremely knowledgeable, patient when we couldn't make up our minds, very accessible (she answered or returned our phone calls or texts within 10 minutes every time!) and has a great personality which made it enjoyable to ride around with her for hours as we searched for the perfect house and lot. I highly recommend Michele to all of our friends and she has been just as outstanding with them as well!! She's literally THE BEST REALTOR IN BRECKENRIDGE!!! She helped us look for a house to purchase, when we didn't find one, we went to look at lots and she never wavered - she knew about lots that weren't yet on the market. She also was our realtor when we sold our house and has helped 6 of our friends purchase houses in breck."

We were from out of state and she connected us with a banker for the mortgage, who was outstanding, an insurance person toget the coverae we needed, who was also outstanding, a layer to help set up the LLC, the cable folks, and a great home inspector. She even connected us with someone to get a better price on new mattress. SHe made all the conections adn they were fantastic. The home purchase could not have gone smoother and that was primarily due to her connections and professionalism."

"I had been casually following the market in Breckenridge for about a year and looking for a condominium. When I decided it was time to get serious, I asked a friend for a recommendation. He suggested Jim Schlegel.

Jim was very responsive to my inquiries and asked me questions about the types of property I was interested in and locations. His knowledge of the market in Summit County was excellent as was his knowledge of the types of properties we were interested in. He immediately started providing me properties to review and we set up a date to visit a few properties.

The very first property we visited was exactly what we were looking for. Jim helped us ask the right questions about the property (HOA rules, HOA fees, taxes, potential rental revenue, parking, pets, and how well was the property managed.) He helped us zero in on the right amount to offer. His instincts were spot on. Our offer was accepted and the closing process went very smoothly.

I would recommend Jim Schlegel for any type of real estate business in the Summit County area."
