About Me

Welcome To Crested Butte ColoradoSigrid Cottrell’s appetite as an adrenaline junky, courageous spirit, desire for change and her zest for the great outdoors brought her to the Crested Butte area the summer of 1991. She came here in search of a quality of life unique to what she had previously experienced and she found just that. There are few outdoor activities that Sigrid hasn’t partaken in or enjoyed! She wakes up at 5:30 AM to begin yet another beautiful day in Paradise with meditation and yoga. She says it makes her a better mother, business woman, friend, daughter and sister! It gives her that edge that makes her who she is.

She grew up in a real estate environment and first pursued a real estate career at the ripe old age of 18, in South Florida. Sigrid then acquired her Colorado & California real estate licenses... "Real estate is in my blood and it is something I truly love to do".

Sigrid Cottrell is an experienced Real Estate Professional that specializes in providing superior service to her clients through the latest in technology, market knowledge and personal touch.

Sigrid has an impressive track record of delivering results, which is apparent from her portfolio of “Closed Deals”. Her accomplishments have been substantiated by the loyalty shown from her returning clients, as well as her highest paid compliment... Their Personal Referrals.

Sigrid is extremely client-focused. She is dedicated in her quest of assisting sellers in successfully marketing and selling their homes and/or businesses and matching buyers to properties based on THEIR needs and wants. She strives to offer a quality of service that consistently exceeds her client's expectations and always goes that extra mile for them.

Sigrid served as a Director on The Gunnison County Board Of Realtors for three years. Previously she was ranked The #8 Individual Producer In The Rocky Mountain Region, for her outstanding performance as well as her ongoing commitment to excellence with her former affiliation with The Century 21 Corporation. She was awarded Century 21’s Prestigious Pacesetter, Centurion and Double Centurion Awards during her affiliation as an independent broker-associate with the independently owned and operated Century 21 office in Crested Butte, Colorado. She branched off to begin Crested Butte Realty, Inc. where she grew a successful, full-service brokerage house of her own. In 2009, after Sigrid broke her back and tore her ACL in back to back injuries, she packed up her daughters and took them on an adventure to North County San Diego, California for 3 years to rest and heal and give her daughter’s some exposure to a new and different lifestyle. 

Sigrid is a devoted mother of 2 young ladies, born and raised in Crested Butte, who she always says are the best part of her every day. Their roots run deep here with strong ties to the people and visitors of Crested Butte and a determination to maintain the sense of community that exists here. “There is no place quite like it that I have ever experienced... I have had more fun in these hills than should be legal... I am extremely grateful for so many things in life, one of which is to be able to call Crested Butte my home!” Since moving here her motto grew to be, "You don't always go out and get into a place, sometimes the place gets into you 

"My mission is to become your ‘Realtor for Life’ by creating trust and loyalty with you while we build your real estate portfolio together and that from there our working relationship will grow into a solid friendship that will last into our futures." 

“I am here to answer any questions or comments you may have regarding your real estate needs, the community, or the lifestyle. For those lucky elite that currently have property here, if you would like to know what your home or business is currently worth, I would be happy to furnish you with a free Comparative Market Analysis.

We chose Sigrid Cottrell based on a local recommendation and extensive knowledge of the Crested Butte, Colorado market as we were new to the area. She did not disappoint! Admittedly, we were not the easiest clients to work with as we had a very long "must have" list (to say the least). Sigrid  went way above and beyond throughout the entire process, and that even included setting up short notice appointments with reputable contractors, which in itself was no easy feat. As we worked with her, it soon became apparent she was more concerned that we find the right property versus her profiting from her commission on the sale. Sigrid's professionalism, enthusiastic and positive attitude, as well as her flexibility made the process very enjoyable. She was dependable, detail oriented and her knowledge was reflected in all elements of the process. If we are ever in need of a Real Estate professional in the future, we wouldn't hesitate to call upon Sigrid Cottrell and highly recommend her to any one who is! aeromosa
