Christopher Atencio is one of the fortunate few to have been born in Vail— a true local! He was here when the resort communities of Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch and Arrowhead were first being developed and has since watched them mature. If any Realtor knows Vail, it’s Atencio.

After leaving Colorado to study English Literature at Dartmouth College, Atencio’s keen interest in business and economics would quickly engage him to real estate development and investments. Post-academia, Atencio became a Realtor in New England and in a few short years his business began to grow until finally Vail’s leading real estate firm made him an offer he couldn’t resist... bringing him home permanently.

Over the years, he and his wife have lived in Vail Village, Lake Creek and Wildridge and know each community in between. "Through personal experience, I can speak with authority as to a neighborhood or lifestyle in a building," he said. Atencio is proud to bring his intimate knowledge of the local real estate market to work for his clients. Brilliantly attentive and powerfully skilled in his approach, Atencio is an innovator at his core. Tireless work ethic coupled with experience in negotiating has allowed him to remain successful in this challenging economy. Atencio attributes his success to long-term relationships.

He figures 70% of his business comes from referrals or repeat clients. They include many international jet-setters, thanks to his fluency in Spanish. Atencio always makes time to volunteer, "I am passionate about education and literacy. I believe in setting aside personal time and resources to volunteer each week in an international Bible education work, perhaps adding value to somebody else's life," he said.

Atencio's Keys

What: His team finished Q3 of 2013 with $388.3 Million in Sales Volume.

How: "Beyond selling real estate, I think globally and that is why my business is marketing Vail... past, present and future."
