Chris Lankhorst

Born and raised in Western Michigan, Chris Lankhorst earned a degree from Michigan State University with a B.A. in Sociology and General Business Administration. Soon after graduation, Chris moved to Denver, Colorado for a career in the medical sales field. Craving to live the life he always dreamed in the mountains of Colorado, Chris and his wife, Christy, relocated to Summit County in 1999. Chris enjoys fly fishing, skiing, golfing and biking and would be happy to show you his favorite river, ski run, golf course or trail.

Chris started his real estate career with Playground Destination Properties, an Intrawest Company, at Keystone Resort in 1999 as a Sales Assistant. Quickly after his start, he continued with Playground Destination Properties as a Sales Operations Manager for Keystone and then Veranda at Turks & Caicos Islands, BWI. Following Sales Operations Chris joined the Copper Mountain Real Estate team as a Sales Specialist, and continued on to sell other resort properties at Winter Park & Snowmass, CO, Napa Valley, CA and Sun Valley, ID as Sales Team Manager.

Chris has returned home and has come full circle to join Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate at Keystone Resort as the Branch Broker. His knowledge and love of Summit County, and that of the resort real estate industry as a whole, make him a great asset to have on your side.

Chris was fantastic to work with. We purchased a bank owned foreclosed property and found working with the bank and listing broker more than frustrating to deal with. Chris worked hard to keep us updated on the transaction and required steps. High marks to Slifer Smith and Frampton with exceptional marks to Chris for guiding us through this process.
