Pursuing Excellence in Sports and Real Estate

Peter vanDerLinden made his journey to Breckenridge in 1994 to pursue his passion for mountain biking, after growing up in Connecticut, where he finished his education, and spending summers in Holland visiting family. This eventually lead him into racing on the local and national circuit levels, progressing to the semi pro rankings. His  hunger for competition, sportsmanship, camaraderie found along the way, has come from his relentless pursuit to  achieve excellence in everything he does. 

Along with his love for the great outdoors here, and being a local, biking expert; Peter’s work experience offered  him the opportunities to build a working knowledge of various professions and industries. Along with his  recognition as an authority at the local bike and ski shops along the way, his most recent profession has been as a lead property manager for Great Western Lodging Company. This has recently led him to the easy transition into  the real estate industry as a real estate broker. 

Property Management Experience

His experience in the property management business allowed him to gain a high level of skills including, but not limited to: sales, marketing, maintenance, client relationships, as well as the vast connections developed through the local trades in Summit County. He learned the dynamics of governing entities from HOA boards to the town regulations within Breckenridge in particular and the immediate surrounding areas. He also gained the vast  knowledge of all the properties here, with their layout within Breckenridge. His hard work and conscientious attention to detail was highly appreciated and noticed by his clients and customers, along with the the company  owners. 

Home is Where the Heart Is

Peter brings this vast knowledge and experience into the real estate profession. “Home is where the heart is”,  says Peter and considers Breckenridge his long time and future home. His “people person” personality and enjoyment of sharing his knowledge of all of Summit County (including biking) with all, makes him a real estate broker you will want to call your own for many upcoming years!

Working and Playing in Summit County

Peter knows all the best mountain biking trails. Ask him about his favorites, and he MAY share them with you, or bring you along for a ride. 😉

During the past nine years, I have come to know Peter van der Linden very well.   For the past three of those years, he has lived on, managed, and maintained my property (45 acres, two homes) and in every way,  goes above and beyond what anyone would expect.  He communicates clearly and is as honest as the day is long.  He fixes whatever needs to be fixed.  He supervises any necessary outside services.  In addition, he has taken the initiative to make multiple improvements on the property.  For context, I founded,  built,  and sold a company with over 130 employees.   So I have a very good handle on what a normal work ethic looks like.  No one works harder than Pete.  In addition, he does what he says he’ll do.  And while that should not be impressive,  in today’s world it actually is.  Pete and I are not related,  yet he has truly become like family to me.  I trust him implicitly.  His character and integrity are unassailable.
