Read What Some Of Our Clients Are Saying About Working With Brent & JaNae Christians

I have worked with Brent and JaNae on two separate occasions now and have been so pleased with them.  They are very professional and honest. I highly recommend Team Christians! -Lisa Taylor

My wife and I sold our condo in Pagosa Springs this past summer and Janae Christians at Galles Properties was our realtor. We could not have been happier with her service. After several showings our condo was sold in about a month and at a price we were satisfied with. I would recommend Janae to anyone buying or selling a home in the Pagosa Springs area. – Jeff Rhode

JaNae and Brent were highly recommended to us by a local resident and our high expectations were more than met.  They know the market and knew how to market our home.  They worked hard in all aspects of the process, including helping us present the house, conducting an open house on more than one occasion to have area realtors see its potential and offer comments, and assisting and advising us on contract negotiations.  – Bob & Karen Anderson

Brent and JaNae are great people to work with and we highly recommend them!  Our family moved to Pagosa from out of state last summer.   Almost a year before that, we met with them in their office.  They let us know about our options for the different areas in and around town and services that are available.  Because high speed internet was an important consideration for us but isn’t available everywhere, having a team with such extensive experience and first-hand knowledge in the local area saved us from having to do a bunch of research to try to identify areas that met our needs.  After that first meeting, Brent kept in touch, sending us updates of possible properties to buy, and made arrangements on short notice to ferry us around and show us the different properties when we came to town to visit.  Being new to the area, we didn’t know a lot of the local contractors or service providers.  Even after the sale was complete and Brent and JaNae’s work was done, they went out of their way to help us make contacts and get things taken care of.  Their efforts, above and beyond what was required, made relocating and transitioning from a distant state easier and less stressful and helped us integrate into the community much more quickly.  If you choose Brent and JaNae, you will get a responsive and attentive team that has a ton of experience and local first-hand knowledge to simplify and streamline your transaction. . . and that is something that you can’t get just anywhere. – Justin R. Jackson, Esq.

Brent and JaNae Christians are the best realtors we have ever worked with, and between my husband and I we have purchased eight homes. Since we moved to Pagosa Springs, Brent and JaNae have helped us to find and purchase one condo, one townhome, and two parcels of land. As a buyer’s agent, they excel in every aspect. They listened well when we explained our home needs, and were extremely responsive to any concerns or issues we ran into, making the process seamless. In fact, they led us to one of the properties the day it was listed, and we were really glad because we bought it! They have great resources for us and helped us to find the right people to assist with sprucing up the places we bought.  As seller’s agents, they are also professional and responsive, communicating well about when to sell, price point, and sold one of our properties within a month. Unlike many agents, they go above and beyond in every aspect of the process of both buying and selling homes and land. We highly recommend Brent and JaNae for all of your real estate needs! – Kat Elton

Brent and JaNae are the best to work with in buying or selling property. I recently sold my house in Pagosa and downsized to a smaller house. I listed with Brent and JaNae and could not have been happier with their service. As a retired realtor from another state, I especially appreciated their professionalism and their promptness in responding to all inquiries. – Dee Ann Abbott

We worked with Brent and JaNae on our recent condo purchase in Pagosa Springs.  As a homeowner and property investor, I have worked with many Realtors over the last 30 years.  I can honestly say that Brent and JaNae provided the most professional complete service from the beginning of our search to the closing of the property.  Communication through the process was accurate and timely so I was always abreast of key milestones.  JaNae even successfully helped in our search for a tenant!  Their honest insight to the local market and area was especially helpful so that we could make an informed decision on the property we purchased.  We are very happy with the guided decision we made and the property we purchased.  We look forward to working with Brent and JaNae again soon! – Steve Hoppe

I am taking a moment to write to others that may need the services of a Great Realtor in the Pagosa Springs area.My family has used the unmatched Professional services of Brent and JaNae Christians, with the purchase and sale of a home and then a second purchase of another vacation home in Pagosa Springs. They are without comparison. Since my family lives in Nebraska, it goes without saying that many, many, small requests surface during the purchase or sale of any home in Colorado, but I never heard a NO or a WE CANNOT DO THAT from this couple; only, we WILL GET IT DONE and I can state with complete sincerity, that is what happened.  And, not only do they go above and beyond to make your Real Estate experience exceptional, but they do so in such a way to actually make it enjoyable. If you have purchased or sold a house lately, then you know how hard it is to “make it enjoyable”.  I am proud to have worked with this couple and without hesitation, would recommend anyone to contract with them when working in the Pagosa Springs area and have a need for Real Estate Services; you will not be disappointed. –  The Terry Doyle Family 

With so many options for realtors in Pagosa Springs, I am truly thankful to have chosen Team Christian’s. They know the market well and had begun their work even before we met for the first time. They made the process extremely easy for me, and their communication during that process was excellent. They did a great job marketing my home and we had multiple offers within days of listing. They truly are the best, exceeded all my expectations. Thanks to Brent and JaNae for helping me sell my home and get back home. – With gratitude…Tom Heiliger

We would like to convey our most sincere appreciation to both of you.  Over the years Mae and I have worked closely with many real estate agents, rarely have we come across real estate “ professionals”. You both set the bar at a new height for others to follow.  This transaction was difficult to say the least, and you both worked diligently through each and every issue to an end, for a Win-Win for all the parties involved.  You have blessed us all.  – Roger and Mae

We do a lot of real estate transactions and have worked with many realtors over the years, but none like Brent and JaNae.  I would liken it to driving a Plymouth for years and years and then finally upgrading to a Lexus; its a completely different experience!  Never have we had anyone work so hard on our behalf and go the extra mile like they do.  And, both Brent and JaNae are genuine people.  They’re down to earth, easily approachable, and fun to be around, and that just makes the real estate process so much more enjoyable.  But don’t let their relaxed dispositions fool you – these two are straight shooters and they tell it like it is, which is important.  Their honesty and integrity are refreshing.  We love how hard they work for us and that we can call them any time to get quick answers to any questions we have.  I would also say that working with a team, both Brent and JaNae together, has many advantages.  Why not have two people working for you instead of just one?  It’s a no-brainer!  So if you’re tired of “driving your old Plymouth”, I highly suggest upgrading to Brent and JaNae Christians.  You will not be disappointed.  – Eric and Sarah Porter, Porter Mountain Homes 

We have lived in Pagosa Springs for 28 years so we know most of the Realtors in town. We choose to work with Brent and JaNae for their professional, no nonsense approach. Brent and JaNae have been working with us for the past 2+ years to find our perfect property to do a 1031 tax exchange. From the listing price of our property to the asking prices of possible properties their advice was straight forward and we felt like is wasn’t just about making a sale but finding the property that matched all our requirements. We are snowbirds in the winter so Brent was our eyes and ears in Pagosa. We were on his portal site and received new listing information almost daily. Brent and JaNae went to preview several properties for us, saving us the time and expense of traveling back to look at the property. Finally, this summer everything worked out and we found the property we wanted and sold the rental property in the time frame needed. We would most certainly choose to work with Brent and JaNae again and highly recommend them to anyone needing a realtor!  – Kelly and Gary Fisher

We first met Brent in 2012 when he helped us purchase our Pagosa home..the home had some issues and Brent went above and beyond to make sure things were taken care of before closing. We used Brent again when we purchased the lots next door and again when we sold them several years later.  We unfortunately had to put our beautiful Pagosa home up for sale this year and again Brent helped us through the whole process. Brent and JaNae are wonderful people…easy to work with and we highly recommend them if you are ever in need of a realtor. – Michael & Julia Ottea

Chris and I enjoyed working with Janae and Brent Christians on the sale of our home.  They were very helpful with all aspects of the sale. They were both very professional and prompt in answering any questions we had. In addition, they made recommendations for any issues, such as repair and moving our household items. Should we need their services in the future, we will be calling them to help us. – Chris and Susan McCool
Brent and JaNae Christians were recommended to us by a friend. In fact, my friend told us that they really were the best real estate team in Pagosa and she wouldn’t take “no” for an answer! I’m so glad she pushed us as our experience with Brent was pretty perfect.   On the same day that we were going to see properties with Brent, we happened to see a small discreet “For Sale” sign –the property wasn’t on the MLS. We emailed Brent and within 30 minutes, he had called the owners and set up an appointment to see the property. By the next day, Brent had a contract ready to go and facilitated the sale perfectly. We closed on time with a very efficient title company. Brent and JaNae even gave us a gift! Months later, we still email Brent with questions about recommendations for restaurants, massages, and just general questions about Pagosa. He is always so willing to answer or to find out and get back to us in a very timely manner! If I were rating by stars, I would give Brent and JaNae 5 stars out of 5! – Donna & Kurt Huffman

We were selling our home as For Sale by Owner.  At our Saturday open house, Brent & Janae previewed our home, then brought their clients by on Sunday.  We had a 98% signed contract by the end of the week.  Through the whole process of offer to closing, the Christians were extremely professional, responsive, courteous and a pleasure to work with. We have bought and sold a dozen houses over the years interacting with numerous realtors. If you are buying or selling, then you need someone who has knowledge and experience.  We would highly recommend Brent & Janae Christians to guide you through the process! – Steve & Carina Erickson

We live in Texas and came up to spend a week to find our perfect vacation home. We had to arrange child care so it was important that we got as much accomplished as possible while we were there. We met to with Brent and we had a long list to cover, Brent was through and completely honest when we asked for his thoughts on things, which is huge for someone house shopping from another state. When we found a wonderful house, Brent was no availed for a bit to take us back over, so JaNae stepped in even though she was in the middle of a project and had an appointment to go to and showed us the house. Not only did they do their absolute best on all of the closing aspects, they referred us decorators, a cleaning lady and many communications of support. I am incredibly grateful that we found these two and I would refer them to anyone over and over!  – Ashley Lindig

We could not have felt more trusting with any other Broker than Team Christians from moment one. Brent was recommended by a friend as we began this journey a year ago. Wanting to relocate from Michigan, we knew very little about the area and had very little experience dealing with Brokers. Their knowledge of the area combined with what we were looking for, just worked. We closed on our new home in November and just recently moved here. Brent and JaNae walked us thru the entire process and have continued to make themselves available to us when needed, we are home!!!! – Peggie Miller 

Writing a testimony for JaNae and Brent isn’t hard, at all. I have never used any real estate agent in Pagosa Springs except Brent and recently, JaNae. It has been my immense pleasure to recommend them to several people. I believe my client who bought in Pagosa Springs used them. My most recent experience was selling my condo last fall. I benefited immensely from the advice on setting a price and on doing some remodeling. There again, they helped me to find a very lovely woman who did the painting and other work. My condo sold as soon as the work was done and I believe I sold at the peak of the market. I would never use any agent except JaNae and Brent. – Jim Guglielmino

We just want to drop a quick note to say a big thank you to Team Christians. What a joy it is to work with committed professionals who seek to meet your every need. Brent and JaNae are a treasure; we love working with them. – Justin and Melanie Cowan

So, you’re looking for a competent, resourceful, knowledgeable, hard-working real estate agent to sell your home, condo, townhouse, etc.? I recommend the Christians, Janae and Brent of Galles Properties. They recently helped me to sell my condo and the process was as smooth and timely as you could want. They were always ready to answer questions and took pains to make sure I was kept up to date on the
process. As far as I am concerned, they are five stars, as professional and personable as you could want, and I highly recommend them without hesitation.” – Steve Merchant

Brent and Janae Christians realtor team are the ‘cream of the crop’.  There are a bunch of realtors that you can choose from in Pagosa Springs, but not all of them will go the extra mile nor do they have the knowledge and expertise needed for real estate in Pagosa Springs.  Brent and Janae truly represented  us and looked out for our best interests.  Their goal was to help us find a property based on our needs not on just making a sale.  In essence, they were our advocates in selling our house and in purchasing our next home.  If you are new to the mountains, Brent and Janae will help you choose wisely in the purchase of your next home.  We have used the Christians team to buy land, sell our house and purchase our current home.  We think so highly of them we would recommend them to our best friends and family without hesitation. – Jill Buckingham

My thoughts on working with Team Christians:  “Professional, considerate, easy to work with and simply the best!”   Sandy Applegate

We have had the pleasure of working with Brent and Team Christians on multiple real estate transactions. They were extremely professional, helpful, patient, and exceeded our expectations every step of the way. Their attention to detail & availability – regardless of time or day – goes unmatched. We would recommend Brent & Janae Christians to anyone looking to buy or sell property in Pagosa & the surrounding areas.
Dylan & Kelly Laner
I would like to offer a  recommendation for JaNae and Brent Christians.  I have been involved with them on both the purchase and sale of a house in Pagosa Springs over the past two years.  Their professionalism and vision to detail really does not fully explain what a pleasure it was to work with them and feel confident that Brent and JaNae had all of the details in hand and gave me very little to be concerned with.  If anyone is planning a move to or from Pagosa Springs,  JaNae and Brent are definitely the realtor team to make the process stress free!” – Gary Wilson

My Wife was the primary client on a recent home sale. The team of Brent and JaNae Christians from the moment of their assignment demonstrated an unparalleled effort to sell our home. They immediately generated results not seen with other realtors we dealt with. Their successful handling of our transaction shows the kind of service any home seller or buyer needs. Look no further, Galles will get her done! Thank you.”

My first encounter with Brent and JaNae Christians was in 2013, when my husband and I were visiting the Pagosa Springs area.  We lived in Louisiana, but always spent our summers out West backpacking and hiking and thought it would be great to have a place in Colorado.  Brent was highly recommended by a gentleman we randomly met on a backcountry hiking trail.  From day one, working with Brent was a pleasure.  He listened to our “wish list” and never pressured us.  He made the entire purchasing process of our condo smoother than we could ever have imagined.  Brent and JaNae always felt more like friends than our agents and we would try and visit with them on our trips to Pagosa.  Unfortunately, my husband passed away from cancer in 2015, and I made the decision to sell the condo at the beginning of 2019.  My first call was to Brent and JaNae.  They knew selling the condo was going to be an emotional experience for me and they immediately put me at ease from the first phone call.  Once the condo was listed, they sent me regular updates on showings, etc.  I knew with them on my side, the condo would sell quickly and at a fair price.  I would recommend Brent and JaNae without hesitation!”  – Michele Certoma

I would definitely recommend Brent and JaNae Christians as a seller’s agent. I had my house listed on the market with another realtor for six months with no offers. The Christians were recommended to me as a team that would work hard to sell the house no matter what, and they did exactly that. The house had a few stumbling blocks to get past, but with persistence and attention to detail, we did get a close. Brent and JaNae are very professional, straightforward, and hands-on. It was never hard to reach them when needed, they respected my views, and always gave professional advice. Thank you Brent and JaNae!” – Kathleen G.

Purchasing a home in Colorado has been a longtime dream for my family. I met Brent Christians by chance as the listing agent on a property I was interested in the Pagosa Springs area. I found an immediate connection with Brent and engaged with him to help my family find our dream home. Over the course of a six month period Brent was incredible by listening to our needs and wants in our home. When we finally narrowed down our purchase decision to three homes, Brent was very helpful to offer good observations based on the needs and wants he was already aware of. Upon finding our home and going to contract, Brent was amazing with his level of engagement and communication throughout the contract process prior to close. Brent offered suggestions along they way that we would not have considered being owners outside of Colorado. We closed on our home in time and with Brent‘s help, we made our dream a reality! Brent has remained an asset to my family after closing as he has helped us locate contractors for services to help us maintain our home. Best of all, Brent has remained genuinely concerned for my family and I feel blessed to call him a friend! – C.H. from Richardson, TX

Brent has been invaluable to us, bringing his expertise of the Archuleta County real estate market for our use several times. Over the past years, we have completed five transactions with him as our Broker, including vacant land and a residence. We would not consider working with anyone else in the area. His work and results have exceeded our needs and expectations, no matter how large or small the transaction. While considering a transaction for us last year, Brent said one of the best things your Broker can state: “I think I can get you a bit more money.” And he did. We now consider Brent a friend and don’t hesitate to recommend his work to anyone. If you’re looking for a thoughtful, personable and experienced agent, then Brent is your best choice! – Terry & Andrea Wyatt

We are so happy to have chosen Team Christians to list our house. Our house was sold and under contract in just 3 days for the price we wanted. Brent and JaNae are all business and very professional. Having lived in Pagosa for 20 plus years they really know this market and area. They are both very knowledgeable about the market and very helpful with the in’s and out’s of a real estate transaction. One of our top criteria in selecting a realtor is honesty. Both Brent and JaNae are very honest and upfront and met/surpassed our honesty expectation. When our house came back with an elevated Radon level Brent and JaNae were upfront about the situation and gave us a referral to get the radon level successfully reduced. With their “cool” heads this was a non issue. Thank you again for all your expertise and help. – JV and EV

We couldn’t be more pleased with the wonderful and professional way you were to work with. You did a great job marketing and selling our homes in Pagosa. You both are so professional and efficient in your business dealings with us. It was a pleasure to wirh with you both! You became good friends to us! You were always available to us and always pleasant to with with! Thank you for making the buying and selling of our homes a pleasant experience! We couldn’t have been more satisfied with our experience working with you! We would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. – Marti and Steve

I am happy that I selected Team Christians (Brent & JaNae) as my realtors because I ended up with very dear friends! I highly recommend them to anyone needing a realtor in Pagosa. They listed my house, showed it, and sold it quickly.We closed on the 30th day! From my experience, I found Brent and JaNae to be honest, professional, ethical, hard working, dependable and loyal realtors. JaNae kept me updated, she found a yardman, a cleaning service and even a mover for me. This saved me trips from flying back and forth from Texas to handle these little necessities. Brent was very thorough in explaining the listing contract, guided me thru the closing statements and made selling my home very easy. It has been my pleasure to work with Team Christians and I highly recommend Brent & JaNae, as Top Realtors in Pagosa Springs. – Betty Meador, Sugarland, TX

Brent helped my wife and I locate and purchase a property in the Pagosa Springs area. I found him to be extremely helpful and the consummate professional. He helped us work through our somewhat challenging negotiating process with the sellers. Even after completing our transaction, Brent and his wife JaNae have continued to provide helpful assistance and advice in making us feel welcome and grounded in our new second home. – John C. in Texas

When I was searching for a Realtor in Pagosa Springs, the most important characteristic to me was honesty. Over the last 12 years and through many transactions, Brent Christians has never once compromised his honesty and in addition has proven to me that he knows and understands the Pagosa Real Estate Market. For smart real Estate transactions in Pagosa Springs, I always turn to Brent Christians. – Bob Hart, Hart Construction

This is the second property we have purchased with BrentChristians. I am a Realtor in the Kansas City metro area and find Brent professional, very pleasant to work with and extremely knowledgeable about the area and property values. Until I get my Colorado license, we will not work with anyone else when purchasing property in Pagosa! I would highly recommend Brent and often do! – Jeannette and Derek Klinkenborg

I have known Brent Christians now for over 8 years and I can’t express my appreciation enough for how wonderful he has been to me & helped me through the process of getting my townhouse sold. All along the way he has given me sound wisdom and because of that I ended up with a wonderful outcome. I would recommend Brent to anyone – he is an amazing man of integrity and the best real estate agent around…. Thanks Brent for everything!!! – Carrie Lanier

Brent was absolutely outstanding. Well informed, kept us abreast on a daily basis, and was responsive to all our inquiries. He sold us this property 14 years ago and how has done it again. He’s a true professional who exceeded our expectations. None better! – Dave and Carolyn Piirto

We really appreciated Brent Christians. He helped us sell our house in 7 days with his tips on listing, etc. He helped us get things done by going the extra mile to arrange repairs that needed to be done in our absence. He was awesome! – Hal & Shirley Cottingham

My house sold at the beginning of 2018 only being on the market for less then a month!. Brent was always professional and exhibited integrity throughout the sale of my house. Buyer check list items arose while under contract which resulted in minor “fixes” that Brent and his experienced handyman took care of. Brent maintained communication throughout the sale of the house and would highly recommend his services. – Kevin Garver

Brent Christians is the consummate professional. I wish he lived in Austin, Tx. because I would have him represent us in our dealings down here. He is truly the best agent we have ever worked with. He is honest, caring and does not push a sale. He is truly interested in his clients’ needs and desires. He is always mindful as to the budget that you indicate you can work with and does not extend you into areas that you do not want to afford. I cannot say enough great things about this man. If you are looking for an agent to represent your interests in Southwest Colorado, look no further than Brent. – Raymond & Peggy Schiflett

I chose Pagosa Springs as the place I want to retire and immediately went torealtor.com and Zillow to see what was available in my price range. I found about 25 properties I was interested in and emailed all the Realtors associated. Brent was the only Realtor to respond to my inquiries and we set a time to tour Pagosa. Brent showed me the properties I was interested in and then a couple not on the list. Brent made seamless the purchase process and was present at my housewarming party when my home was complete! His professionalism and personal demeanor were exactly what I had hoped for and I have recommended him over and over. Thanks man for the great job! – Tony J. (Client)

We made an offer on our house at the same time as another buyer, which turned out to be for the same amount. Brent Christian’s professional expertise in preparing our offer was the determining factor for the sellers to accept our offer over the other offer. We are so thankful to have such a professional and caring agent as Brent. He kept us informed, advised, and guided us through the whole process. Brent has high integrity and is not pushy or boisterous. We enjoyed getting to know him and will treasure the blessing he was to us always. – Jane Carter via Zillow

My wife and I wish to acknowledge our favorable experience with Brent & JaNae Christians. After much thought and prayer, we concluded it was time to list our dream home in beautiful Pagosa Springs… READ MORE

Many thanks to JaNae & Brent Christians of Galles Properties for going way beyond the “norm” for us. You both looked earnestly and diligently for our new home and sold our old one so quickly. You worked hard to get things done, always pleasant and ready to help. Thank you from our hearts. – Tony & Marilyn Scarpa
