Kristin Lile

Broker Associate
License #:

Having worked in the real estate industry for 30 years, my primary goal in my business is to provide excellent customer service to my clients.  My real estate career began in the title business, where I worked as a title policy verifier, and later as a real estate/loan closer for title companies and law firms in Tennessee, South Carolina and the Front Range of Colorado. I also spent time as a portrait photographer, which allowed me to continue my joy of working with people with my passion for photography. With my title insurance experience, the next logical step was to get my broker’s license, which I did right after moving to Steamboat in 2007.

I have a BA in English from Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas, where I met my husband, Robert. Married for 30 years, we moved to Steamboat after he joined the medical staff as a radiologist at the Yampa Valley Medical Center. At that time, Steamboat wasn’t new to us, as we had been visiting for years in summers and winters, enjoying camping, cycling and skiing. Now that we live in Steamboat, we enjoy the many attributes of the community, including the arts, the incredible people who live here, and all the numerous outdoor activities. 

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.



"As a real estate investor and Realtor in the state of Florida, I have met and worked with many brokers and have respect for a great many of them. With that said, I want to make the point that Kristin is the best real estate professional that I know. She makes it her mission to understand what the client wants and is relentless in making that vision a reality. She has the rare quality of sincerity where she will let you know when something isn't right and needs to be reconsidered. There have been properties that I liked where she clearly pointed out things that I would have regretted had I bought. She knew what I wanted from having listened and reminded me tactfully to stay true to my standards. In Steamboat Springs, Kristin Lile will always be my broker. "

""Kristin helped us find our dream vacation home in beautiful Steamboat, CO. She listened to what was important to our family and provided good options to help us in our search. Her knowledge of the area and current market conditions helped guide us in making a great decision for today and the future. What Kristin provided that was most important to us was communication. The process of buying a second property was an emotional roller coaster especially with the bank lending climate at the time. Kristin worked hard and kept us well informed through each step of the process to ensure we achieved our goal.""

"We had visited Steamboat many times over the years and finally decided to try and find a home there. We did several online searches for agents and Kristin's name kept popping up so we gave her a call. She really knows the market. She was organized, timely in her communications and always professional. We ended up building a house there and Kristin was with us every step of the way. She was a trues advocate for us and was on our side the entire time. Even though we were over 1000 miles away, I knew I had Kristin there to be my eyes and ears on the project. I would use Kristin again and highly recommend her! "

"We were first time home buyers in Steamboat and had no idea what to expect with this whole experience. Kristin was recommended to us and I am so thankful that she was. She was persistent in making sure she found us just the right condos to fit our needs while never making us feel pressured to buy. She often went out of her way to make sure that we found something that we loved and were never settling for just okay, our best interest was always placed first. Being a first time home buyer in Steamboat was often times discouraging and Kristin never gave up hope on us and now we have a condo that we love! I highly recommend Kristin to all future Steamboat home owners!"
