More About Me

Christopher Grathwohl - Realtor

Born in 1963, I relocated from Seattle to Sun Valley Idaho in 1978 at the age of 14.

Today you can live anywhere! Why not Sun Valley??   “You don’t just live here, you operate from here”.

“I grew up in Sun Valley and love the Wood River Valley”! As a community we have so much to offer – arts, entertainment, social functions, gilds, cultural opportunities, more.

Growing up in the Wood River Valley has been amazing for my family. I will happily share my Idaho experiences, valley history, and folklore, with you. This is an incredible, special place! Clear starry nights, blue bird days, great schools, and our diverse residences’, make our community!

Summertime - Enjoy fishing, hiking, golf, river rafting, tennis… all right out your front door!

Winter - Ski and snow shoe under the glistening moon and star lighted skies. Night life and cultural events are endless!
