They primarily focused on real estate investments but then decided to expand their business by opening a realty company to serve more clients. The company started extremely small and was a family run business. Monica’s mother, Claudia Adams and brother, Brian Adams were there every step of the way to help shape the business.
Today the owner of Pink Realty, Monica Breckenridge has received many awards and achievements because of her agents and support team that help her achieve her goals everyday.

People ask us all the time: How did you come up with the name Pink Realty and are you related to the founders of Breckenridge, CO?
This is a great question and a fun one to answer! Monica Breckenridge was trying to come up with a word that she would be able to have as a marketing phone number, that way the last 4 digits were the name of her company. At the time the owners started the company, Monica was the biggest fan of the color PINK that there was. Her car even had Pink on it!
Then, Monica realized that the word PINK was a 4 digit word and a lightbulb went off in her head. Pink is a color and a brand that sticks out that nobody else has. It’s very memorable. People would not have to remember anything but a color and they would find us.
As far as the owners Monica and Russ Breckenridge's last name. That is a question we also get everyday. Are you related to the founders of the town Breckenridge? Well there actually is a fun little story behind the name. The town of Breckenridge, CO was actually named after the Vice President of the United States John Breckinridge. In 1859, a town for gold miners was set up along the Blue River in Colorado. The town was called “Breckinridge” in hopes of flattering Vice President John Breckinridge in order to get a post office. The plan worked and Breckinridge became the first town between the Continental Divide and Salt Lake City to get a post office for its 8,000 residents. Well it so happens that the owners of Pink Realty are related to John Breckinridge. The family name and the town of Breckinridge was renamed over time to Breckenridge. So yes, the town of Breckenridge was named after Monica and Russ's family. Pretty neat to be living in Colorado and doing real estate in this town.
To top off the branding, Monica wanted to support the community as well, and correlate it back to Pink. Being a cancer survivor herself, Monica knows how important community outreach and awareness is, and how far a donation can go to help out somebody in need.
Pink Realty is a proud sponsor of local charities that help men and women in our region to get through some of life’s most difficult moments and financially challenging times. $86,538.92 donated since Feb 2010.

Pink’s Belief System:
The owner Monica Breckenridge is a huge believer in the best-selling 2006 self-help book, The Secret, which fosters the principles of the law of attraction. Meaning you attract into your life what your dominant thoughts are.
Monica was able to create her current business from the ground up with no money in her pocket when she started. She believed she could, no matter what hurdles were thrown her way. Monica believes in keeping a positive attitude with everything she and her team does. If something goes wrong she always finds a positive reason for why the situation has happened.
We just love these principles and we get so excited knowing that we can create anything we want. If you follow the principles of the law of attraction, your life will change. Our team uses it every day, even for the simplest things. All of our agents and team members are believers as well.
We highly recommend, as a company, that every client reads the book, The Secret or watch the movie. The concepts are life changing and mind blowing. You will have a blast just like we do, and if you had any success with the law of attraction, let Monica know. She just absolutely loves hearing these positive stories!
