About John

Broker John Tensfeldt, Colorado Mountain Real Estate by Coldwell Banker Mountain Properties.

Background & Real Estate Philosophy

“The market waits on no one!”

I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin, but was fortunate enough to have a family friend put the idea in my head to check out Colorado State University as an option for college.

I did check it out, and I am so glad that I did! I have been a Coloradan almost continuously since graduating from my alma mater, Colorado State University!

After graduation, I was drafted into the United States Army for a two-year hitch, and I completed a tour of duty in Vietnam as a helicopter medic before returning to the states to ‘get my life started’.

Businessman & Entrepreneur

I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit, so after a brief stint working for a large corporation in Chicago, I decided to strike out on my own. My heart was determined to return to Colorado, and I opened up two picture framing stores and an art gallery in downtown Denver.

After 14 years of doing ‘retail’, and taking some time off after selling all my business holdings, I decided that I had to find something else to do with my time.

The Mountains Called & I Answered

My family, all skiers, decided to purchase a beautiful property in Dillon, Colorado in 1986. We have owned that property ever since. With work in Denver I only came to the mountains when time permitted. But once my businesses sold, selling real estate seemed like a very good fit for me as a new career move.

My wife and our two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Chloe and Mirabelle, moved to the mountains full time, and our Denver house has sat mostly vacant! We enjoy a much more relaxed lifestyle than living in the city, and we appreciate the grandeur of the mountains and all that they have to offer. We can enjoy the skiing, hiking, and snowshoeing just by walking out the door!

Your Breckenridge Real Estate Broker

So, here we are today. Being a Realtor has been very rewarding for me. After being with two other real estate companies in the last ten years, I am most happy with my current position with Coldwell Banker Mountain Properties located in the middle of Breckenridge on Main Street. I desired to work for the best company in all of Breckenridge, and that company is Coldwell Banker Mountain Properties. I have helped both buyers and sellers with their real estate needs in all areas of Summit County. I love what I do, so whether you are a buyer or a seller, please give me a call. I am here to be of service.

What people are saying about John

"John is a very professional, business man. No pressure individual and always kept in touch with the client on what is going on in the sale. Handled all details to the closing. Would highly recommend John to anyone considering putting there property on the market. A nice all around experience. We give him a "12 score"."

Ken and Linda Larson

"When I asked John Tensfeldt to look for a second home for my family in Summit County, he got right to work and showed us many homes that fit our price range and desired location. He was always available for showings that worked with our schedule. He is very knowledgeable about the area and helped guide us to the proper selection. Once that selection was made he again was very helpful in the negations with the purchase. He also did the same for a friend of mine that purchased a home. I would not hesitate to use John in the future if the need arises."

Ron Damiana

"We have worked with John several times. He sold our Breckenridge condo in record time and showed such patience while we were looking for a new home in Breckenridge. He helped up find exactly what we were looking for in a very short time. Not an easy task, as my husband and I had different criteria. John was patient and found us our dream home in no time at all. What we thought would be a long and tedious process turned out to be a very enjoyable experience, thanks to John's patience, determination, professionalism and very quick response time. If you are looking for someone to get the job done with out the high pressure personality, please use John Tensfeldt!"
