What past clients have said
Erika is simply the best to work with. She is knowledgeable, kind, thorough, and goes the extra mile for her clients. Our knowledge was limited as first-time buyers in the mountains, and Erika guided us step by step through the entire home buying process. She is patient, detail oriented, and worked diligently to get us our condo. We could not recommend her enough! -Mackenzie Todd, Colorado, 2023
If you are in the market for a property in Summit County, Erika Schmidt should be the first call you make. Erika made the process of purchasing a vacation home “long-distance” easy. Not only did she show us a number of great options to consider and negotiate our deal perfectly, she stayed in close contact the entire time from offer to closing. During this time, Erika was our link to Breckenridge while we were in Atlanta. She spent numerous hours meeting inspectors and contractors so we could have quotes on renovations before the closing. She even met our new bed delivery at our ski condo so when we arrived it was already in our new bedroom! Erika kept in contact via telephone and email often, sometimes just an update to where we were in the process and to see if we needed anything at all. All of Erika referrals including our new housekeeper, our handyman, the numerous contractors we spoke to, and our local mortgage broker were the best around. Erika is so well connected in Summit County, as soon as we mentioned her name we were well taken care of. Erika broke the mold of our idea of “real estate agent” because she does so much more than the average agent and we highly recommend her.
-Melissa & Michael Rosenbloum, Atlanta GA 2010, 2013, 2014, and 2023
To get our property in Breckenridge – my wife and I did a 1031 exchange. This process can be challenging due to 1031 timing as well as finding that perfect place you want to purchase. Erika was great from start to finish. Erika knows the market in every aspect and having this experience is a must when buying “long distance”. I knew I could take Erika’s lead and be satisfied. My wife and I ended up with an excellent investment property (just as Erika thought it would be). I would use Erika again or recommend Erika for anyone buying in her service area.
-Mike and Jane Hutchinson 2013, 2014, and 2023
Erika is an excellent agent, and a lovely person. She’s thorough, thoughtful, and excellent at managing many details. She knows her market inside and out. Would definitely recommend working with her. -The Bengston Family, Colorado, 2023
Erika was great to work with. Made everything very easy. Always willing to answer any questions or concerns we had. –Alan Almond, Utah, 2022
Erika is a great agent to have and a pleasure to work with. Finds properties to review that are appropriate notifies me well but not too much. She follows up on all the important items and is very knowledgeable of the market both from a rental and buyer/seller standpoint. Really works for you to get the right deal closed. -D. Friedenson, Colorado, 2021 and 2022
I can’t imagine how our home buying process will be like without Erika. She is very knowledgeable about the Summit County market and has a lot of local connections. She is genuine and trustworthy about everything she said. She replies to messages promptly even on holidays and her vacations. She fought for us for everything instead of for making the deal. She is the best realtor we’ve worked with. I highly recommend Erika to any home buyer! -The Hu Family, Colorado, 2021
We are based in the UK and Erika listed our Breck townhome and went the extra mile to get us through to closure. Erika works hard to get the best outcome and promptly solve all those problems that might crop up. Her advice and work ethic and customer service is outstanding. I would recommend Erika to anyone without hesitation. -Chris and Susan Hughes, UK, 2020
Working with Erika to buy our townhouse in the mountains was a great experience! Trying to buy in a market we had little knowledge of, Erika gave us invaluable feedback on the details of each area which and helped us to quickly narrow our search. She helped us put together multiple offers and advocated for us at each step of the way. Would definitely recommend! -P. Hankins, Colorado, 2020
We had a great experience working with Erika! She is highly knowledgeable about Summit County real estate and the pros/cons of each area which helped a lot with narrowing down the exact location we wanted to buy in. She guided us every step of the way and constantly followed up to ensure we knew what steps needed to be taken next and didn’t fall behind in the process. Erika also fought hard on our behalf to get the best deal on our property and did tons of research about our property’s history to ensure there were no surprises for us. She was always available to answer our questions quickly and introduced us to several of her connections in the area who are also great to work with (property managers, contractors, loan officers, etc). Overall, we highly recommend her to anyone buying property in Summit County! -The Diaz Family, 2020
We have bought and sold multiple properties in the last ten years and Erika is by far the most attentive,
hardworking, and knowledgeable realtor we have ever worked with. She is able to make each client a priority and will go out of her way to make sure there are no hiccups along they way. She walked us through selling our property during the COVID shutdown and her advice and help was invaluable. I give her the highest possible recommendation. -Holly Cole, Kansas, 2013 and 2020
Erika was possibly the most professional, informed, and helpful realtor I’ve ever worked with. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, given all those certifications she has. She was truly a delight to work with. -James Gilbert, Colorado, 2020
We really enjoyed working with Erika. She responded almost instantly to all my calls and texts. Even though we are under 40 yr old out of state buyers, and without the largest budget, she took us seriously. She took videos of the condos we liked, and submitted our offer the first day the property was on the market. We appreciated her tough side when it came to saving us money on the transfer tax and repairs. I would definitely work with Erika again! -The Koss Family, Texas, 2017 and 2020
Erika is excellent to work with, and has helped me realize my dreams to live in Breckenridge. -Guy Haycock, Colorado, 2020
Great knowledge of the market. Provided great advice. Exceeded my expectations. One of the best realtors I’ve worked with. -Surinder Dahiya, Colorado, 2019
Erika is highly skilled and easy to work with. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience. She kept me informed throughout the process of selling, ensuring that I always understood each step. It was an absolute pleasure working with her. –Jennifer Heiss, Colorado, 2019
We purchased a home in summer of 2018 with Erika as our agent. She was an immense help in understanding local market dynamics. She was very patient in helping us find just the right property that met our wish list and budget. She navigated the perils of inspection, negotiations and helped us find a local lender that also could account for particulars of the local market. Afterwards, she also helped put us in touch with other area experts she had recommended to help with renovations after our project. Very happy to have had her on our side! -The Nelson Family, Colorado, 2018
Erika was tireless in looking for the place that was right for me–we would walk into a place and she would immediately start listing everything she didn’t like and how it would effect me, things that I would need to change, things that were great…always with re-sale in the back of her mind. As we went through the negotiation process, she was continuously reaching out to discuss potential scenarios, ask for counters, and check in with how I was feeling. She is very competitive in her work and worked hard to get the right price and conditions. We spent hours upon hours together looking at houses and talking on the phone, and throughout the process she was easy to communicate with and says what she is thinking. She is proud of her “old and grouchy” mindset and won’t beat around the bush. If you are looking for someone who is straightforward, competitive, knows Summit County, and is very sharp, Erika is a great candidate. -Kyle R Kahnweiler, Breckenridge CO, 2018
Erika was absolutely fantastic throughout the entire transaction. She’s smart, hardworking, and professional.I always felt like her top priority, and it was always easy to communicate with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Summit County. -The Carroll Family, Colorado, 2018
Erika has been super throughout our entire property purchasing journey — very proactive and providing a lot of relevant and important information along the way. She’s kept us on track of every deadline and has helped us find a home that we’ve been dreaming of. I would definitely turn to Erika again for any new real estate project in Summit County. -The Kervinen Family, Norway, 2018
After a previous unsuccessful day with one realtor who truly could not hear/understand our needs, and with two young kids kids in tow, we met Erika. Within a few minutes we clicked. She took our lead and did not waste any time staying in a house we clearly did not want. She eliminated ones that she knew we would not want. The next to last house of the day was it. We all knew it including the 7 year old. She expertly helped us through every step of the confusing purchasing and obtaining a mortgage process. She kept in close contact, addressed our anxieties and concerns, and celebrated when our happy closing occurred. She has even continued to “check” on us since. Purchasing a house from Erika Schmidt could not have been a smoother, more pleasant and exciting process. We are so pleased we found her. -The Harkness Family, Colorado and Connecticut, 2017
Erika was so helpful, informative and very responsive. I emailed her a question and she responded very quickly and helped me with many more questions. She worked very hard for us with the purchase of our condo. Her knowledge and professionalism gave us confidence in choosing her as our broker. We could always tell that she had our best interest at heart. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to sell or buy. -The Peterson’s, Denver CO, 2017
I was looking to downsize and simplify my life in Colorado Springs. Erika was great in helping me achieve these goals. She made it easy for me to sell my house and find the perfect townhouse which I had custom built. We saw several townhouses and condos, and she helped me pick the best one for my needs. She was very professional, never dropped the ball, and made sure that all aspects of the real estate process went seamlessly for both properties. I would highly recommend her. -Andy Blemker, Colorado Springs CO, 2017
Erika was absolutely wonderful to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, we felt 100% confident purchasing our home with her. -The Killian Family, Denver CO, 2017
Good listener, knows the process and advises appropriately, VERY timely, enjoyable to work with. -The Jinnett Family, Silverthorne CO, 2017
To say that Erika is dedicated to her clients’ best interests is to understate that dedication. She genuinely cares; is assertive; never drops the ball; demonstrates extensive knowledge of the housing market in her area; and provides a network of connections to local people, services, and businesses. We benefited from Erika’s expertise as both a selling and buying agent. We will work with her again.
-The Slaters, Colorado, 2015 and 2016
I was lucky enough to meet Erika crossing the street with her well behaved dog and complimented her on the dog’s behavior – walking right next to her with no leash. I asked her a quick question about the local market and she gave me some great insight.
A few days later I asked her to look at some properties and gave her a tough list of parameters from cost to rental income to size. She came up with five great alternatives and set up showings the next day.
Long story short I bought one of the properties within a month of meeting her. It’s an amazing rental property on Ski Hill Rd and we got a fantastic deal on it, because of Erika’s local knowledge and willingness to work for me. I live in Europe and travel 250 days a year so had to close electronically. She helped make that process nearly seamless. The only thing that went wrong was hiring a home inspector who didn’t take paypal and was not set up to easily transact with – it was a sticking point and I mentioned it to Erika. So what did she do? She took care of the expense and said she wanted this to be the greatest experience I have ever had with a real estate transaction – and it was!
-Patrick Sweeney, Chamonix France, 2013 and 2016
Erika is hand-down, the most proactive, customer-focused representative we’ve ever had the pleasure to deal with. We’ve come back to her twice for real estate transactions and recommended her to both friends and family. She’s an amazing agent who brings a thorough knowledge of the process, and immense skills and certifications to bear for her customers. -T. Calabrese, USAF, 2007 and 2016
We decided to work with Erika to buy a Condo in Breckenridge right before Christmas 2014. She made the process very, very easy. She presented a number of potential condos based on our criteria. Helped us narrow it down to a few and eventually one that we really liked. Then started the process of getting to a quick close. She is extremely responsive, she communicates very well and she pays attention to every detail. This together with her knowledge about the local market, trends, etc and her natural drive to negotiate the very best possible deal allowed us to close within just a few weeks start to finish.
Overall, she is just a delight to work with and she is exactly the person you want representing you. We highly recommend Erika.
–The Soderstroms, Connecticut, 2015
Erika is phenomenal. We have moved many times and she is the most thorough, on-top-of-things realtor we have worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond in many ways. She offered service to us beyond the norm. We have no doubt that we could not find a more efficient and effective realtor if we called every realtor working in Summit county.
-Lisa and Konoy, Colorado, 2015
Erika works like few people do today. Her top priority is her clients and she stays on top of every detail. When we had a question, she had already anticipated the question and was calling us with the answer. She is all about customer service and knows a myriad of people who can help, not only with the sale/purchase of the property but she knows people who can help with all the details associated with out of town ownership of a property, mover, workers, helpers not to mention she knows people who could help me plan my long distance wedding in the house we purchased, the day after we closed on it!
She is delightful to work with but don’t mistake that charming personality with a soft negotiator! She is a barracuda when she is working for you, smiling the entire time!!! We think she did a extraordinary job for us and would highly recommend her.
-Marsha and Tom Brown, Texas, 2014
We worked with Erika to sell our mountain home and had a fantastic experience. We really enjoyed working with an agent that puts an emphasis on communication with her clients. She is very knowledgeable about the area and local sales trends (as evidenced by her monthly newsletter) and kept us up to date on market conditions and recent sales before we even asked. She was also a very savvy negotiator and her input allowed us to get a better price for our home than we could have on our own or with a less experienced agent. Whether you are buying or selling, you will want Erika on your side of the deal.
-Greg and Catherine, Colorado, 2014
After interviewing 5 local Realtors to sell our home, we chose Erika. By nature, Erika is a working bee.
She utilizes her vast professional experience, connections & passion for real estate to get the job done.
-Bill & Tiffany Hollis, Chicago IL, 2014
Referral for Erika Schmidt – March 8, 2012
Trying to sell your vacation property in this economy is very difficult because the process requires an agent that can navigate all the economic pitfalls associated with a successful transaction. We feel very lucky to have worked with Erika Schmidt from Breckenridge Mountain Real Estate on the successful sale of our mountain condo. Erika has an attention to detail that creates results:
Her marketing efforts were timely and well designed
She has strategic positions in publications that create exposure
She develops deep relationships that generate opportunities
Once under contract, deadlines are enforced for a smooth process
Her team performs at a high level of efficiency in every phase
The closing process was painless and very easy
Without question Erika is the professional real estate agent that I would refer to family and friends that have any interest in mountain property. This process was very important to our family and the dedication of Erika during the time we worked together was outstanding to get the results we were looking for.
I would not hesitate to recommend Erika for any real estate transaction because she understands what needs to be done and she executes in the best interest of her clients to bring results. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
-Sincerely, Brooke Chesnut, Co Springs CO
We have worked with Erika on 4 transactions. With each transaction, we value her more and more. She stayed at least one step ahead on every issue. She has consistently gone over and above to protect us and to be fair to all parties involved. She has guided us with tremendous wisdom and insight as we pursued the purchase and sale of homes in the Breckenridge area. Erika is truly one of our favorite people both personally and professionally. Thanks Erika!!!!
-Sincerely, Carey P. 2012, 2014 and 2018
You have a natural talent for reading people and you used that to guide me to a neighborhood that has felt like home to me since “day one”. I will recommend your realtor services to my closest of friends, family and business contacts. Thanks Erika!
-Terrie Holly, Denver CO, 2010 AND 2014
Erika did a fantastic job in helping us find our first vacation home in Breckenridge. She delivered exceptional value by not only showing us properties, but really challenging us to think through issues such as frequency of use, resale value, rentability, location, etc. As a result we made some changes to our initial criteria and purchased a second home that I think will provide fun and enjoyment for our family for many years to come. Erika was also fantastic on the execution / closing. In a rising real estate and interest rate environment it was critical we didn’t hit any road bumps and she ensured all parties stayed on track and followed up on every detail and issue that came up during closing. Thanks Erika
-Brad and Holly Cole, Wichita KS 2013
Erika sold our house in 5 weeks. From the time a contract was signed, every detail was handled timely and efficiently. We received a price that Erika negotiated for us better than we could have for ourselves. We are very happy with her service.
-Bob and Beth Faucett 2013
Erika is a great agent… she is hard working, empathetic with her clientele and remarkably responsive. She went above and beyond my expectations to make my purchasing experience a success and a positive experience. I hope to use her services again in the future.
–Vic Russiff, The Woodlands TX, 2013
Erika patiently showed us numerous properties in our search for a vacation home. She alerted us to issues with certain buildings and neighborhoods. Because she took the time to listen to us, we ended up with the absolutely right home for us.
-Curtis and Cathy Brown, Co Springs CO, 2013
Dear Erika, I think you surely went the extra mile for us and still are, I just want you to realize we know you have and appreciate it so much. I can’t thank you for each special thing you have done, fixing up the staging with some color for us, opening up and checking things for us, keeping an eye on the place, being so patient, and so many more things. This has been a difficult move for us but a necessary one. We wish you the very best with your new company. Hopefully we will sell the lot with you soon. Wishing you the very best in life,
-Love, Don and Genny E., 2012 and 2014
Over the years, we have dealt with a number of Real Estate Agents on both sides of the trade. Until we dealt with Erika Schmidt, most of them reminded us of used car salesmen. All they were interested in was the deal. Erika is without a doubt the best Real Estate Broker with which we have dealt. She tries to get her clients the best deal she can and the best house that fits their needs and budget. When asked for any help on anything Erika, was always there no matter what the need. Most recently we bought a house in Highlands, N. C. and even though Erika wasn’t our Agent for the home in Highlands, Erika handled both closings in her office doing her job and the job of the Sales Agent in Highlands, No charge. Dorothy & I highly recommend Erika to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home in the Breckenridge area.
-Sincerely, Leo & Dorothy Huckabee, Highlands NC, 2011
Erika, just a short note to thank you for the great work in assisting Ingrid and I with the sale of our Mountain Thunder condo and the purchase of our new home at Park Forest Estates. As a real estate attorney practicing in Fort Lauderdale Florida for the past thirty five years, I have dealt with countless real estate agents, but your service, negotiating skills and attention to detail is second to none. We look forward to working with you in the future.
-Joe and Ingrid Balocco, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Erika did a wonderful job with a very difficult short sale. Even with many barriers and obstacles, she was very attentive and diligent to get everything needed as timely as she could. She was always available to me though the process. I would recommend her as a realtor.
-Charlotte Morrison, 2012
Erika, I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for the outstanding service you provided during my recent home purchase in Frisco, CO. While I am typically much more hands on when it comes to real estate transactions, you quickly demonstrated your vast knowledge of the local area, the prevailing market conditions, expertise with complex transactions and your dedication to providing your clients with first class professional service – all of which assured me I was in great hands! Throughout the transaction, you exceeded all of my expectations, and thanks to your professionalism, I can’t imagine how this could have gone any better! Thanks again I look forward to your representation in future deals!
Erika is an exemplary real estate agent who goes beyond our expectations. She has assisted us in matters with property management issues before she even became our agent, and when we did buy property through her she made the process seamless. Her assistance did not stop at the conclusion of the transaction, as she continues to provide information and assistance in community matters. We consider her a friend as well as our agent, and would recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable real estate agent. Thank you Erika!
-Dalal and Alvin Murgai, The Woodlands TX

Leo and I cannot Thank You enough for everything you have done for us and the effort you put towards finding the condo that is a great fit for us! We love the unit and the location.

-Til Later, Karen and Leo
Thank you for your incredible patience and professional assistance in helping me with the purchase of my home in Breck. Your guidance to get me settled in with my utility contact phone numbers, directions about town, and even personal transportation made move-in a cinch.
Concerning a recommendation, I would simply say Erika is dedicated to maintaining high professional standards, trustworthy, knowledgeable, highly respected by known community members and contractors, reliable, has a keen business sense, and is willing to go above and beyond to provide high quality real estate sales services.
-Larry and Debra Bucar
Erika has to be one of the hardest working real estate agents in Breckenridge/Summit County. She works all the hours in the day to make sure that your deal closes as quickly and efficiently as possible, not to mention how knowledgeable and informative she is about all the legalities of the process. We count on her for all of our transactions!
-Niamh McGoff and Aaron Gaertner
