Christy Krause ~ Broker Associate
Job Title: Broker Associate
What It Should Be: Connoisseur of Life Experiences
Also Known As: A Rocky Mountain Girl at Heart
Christy can perhaps be best described as a Coloradan who loves her adopted home state as much as she loves to travel and seek out life’s adventures! This unique combination allows her to understand both the excitement and tension that often surface during a relocation, as well as the importance of finding just the right place to call ‘home.’
Born in Ohio but raised in Colorado Springs from the age of 5, Christy attended Coronado High School and earned her bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Colorado Boulder. Upon graduation, she set her sights on New York City, where she became a Vice President for the Morgan Stanley Institutional Equity Trading Floor early in her career. Soon after, she and her husband, Trent, moved to Barcelona, Spain, for one of his work assignments. Their first son was born abroad, which led to a whole new level of getting to know their new city, its culture and customs—and its medical facilities!
Once back in the United States, they briefly settled in Connecticut before returning to Colorado to raise their growing family. Years later, when a work opportunity once again opened the door to living abroad, Christy, Trent, and their three children packed up and relocated to England for three years. While it wasn’t easy to leave family and friends, it was certainly an amazing opportunity to explore another part of the world together.
Upon returning to Colorado in 2011, the Krauses settled in Castle Pines—just far enough from city life to enjoy the peace and quiet but still only 10 minutes away from seemingly everything they need. When Christy was presented with the opportunity to join Destination Denver Realty a short time later, she knew it would be just the right fit. Now a licensed Realtor, Christy brings together her years of personal relocation experience and love of travel to help clients establish their new lives in a new city.

“I feel blessed to help people in their journey of settling into a new community. It’s not just about finding a dream home—which is always fun—but also about helping them find the right fit as they start their lives somewhere new.”
Charity Challenge – Denver Dumb Friends League
Christy is once again raising funds for the Denver Dumb Friends League, an organization that’s near to her heart since her own family adopted their dog, Buffett, from a DDFL facility in 2007. Not only has Buffett enriched their lives here in Colorado, but he also played a vital role in easing the family’s transition during their own relocation to England years ago. And while they’ll never know why the young Golden Retriever was left in DDFL’s overnight drop box, they are grateful for the charity that continues to provide options for people who can’t take care of their pets while simultaneously helping to find loving families that can.
