Scott Challis

Broker/Owner - Founding Principal

Scott Challis is a fifth generation native to Colorado and has been in the residential home industry for more than 20 years.  In 2015, Scott's passion for real estate and philanthropy inspired him to start Challis Real Estate Company, LLC.

Cristine M. Challis

Associate Broker - Shareholder

Cristine comes to Challis Real Estate Company, LLC after having worked in the legal field for more than 20 years.  In that time, Cristine was continually recognized as having contributed to many causes, both locally and nationally.  In one case in particular, Cristine was given an award for her work in a case that involved the State of Colorado and the issue of public education. Cristine's passion for community service was strengthened by the result of the case, and she realized that she wanted to be more directly involved in her community through a new career in real estate.

Though an Associate Broker before 2015, Cristine left the legal field to become a partner in Challis Real Estate Company, where she continues to foster her love of philanthropy, but now, she combines her community portfolio with real estate and is making an enormously positive impact in her community.  Cristine's area of focus is single-family residential, with an emphasis in the south metro Denver area.  She has an incredible work ethic, is result driven, and has helped facilitate many successful real estate transactions since joining the firm.
