Chris Lankhorst

Chris has been a licensed Realtor helping Buyers and Sellers in their search for mountain properties in Summit County since 1999. 

Born and raised in Western Michigan, Chris 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 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 as an In-Resort Sales Operations Manager for Keystone and then Veranda at Turks & Caicos Islands, BWI. Following Sales Operations, Chris joined the Copper Mountain Real Estate team, and continued on to sell in other resort properties at Winter Park & Snowmass, CO, Napa Valley, CA and Sun Valley, ID. Chris is now acting Branch Broker for Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estates largest Summit County office in Breckenridge, CO.

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. His goal of exceeding client expectations and delivering results has been recognized by his many satisfied clients who refer family and friends and repeatedly search Chris out for all of their real estate needs.

"We have known Chris for a number of years since shortly after acquiring our property in Keystone in 2009. He always made time to offer advice and 'brainstorm' on real estate investments. When we were considering selling his advice on pricing and timing were spot on. He handled the negotiations and the process was seamless. We had an accepted offer within a week and closed on schedule. I can highly recommend Chris whether one is a buyer or a seller."

"I am an attorney with a real estate license; nonetheless, we elected to retain Chris Lankhorst to sell our Keystone vacation condo because of his almost 2 decades of experience in the Summit County market. It paid off. Within days of the condo going on the market, he obtained an offer for the highest price, by far, in my community. He is exceptionally experienced in the local market and his company has a large pool of buyers. He was very experienced in dealing with multiple property managers (building and the unit), issues with selling furnished property, issues with showing property while on a rental program, and all other unique aspects of selling vacation property. He is familiar with all the key parties involved in such a transaction so everything moved quickly and efficiently. I strongly recommend working with Chris."

"Chris originally listed our property a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, a couple of recent property purchasers with like-kind units dumped their properties at a very low price shortly after we listed. Once the listing period expired we took the unit off the market. The market rebounded, and we hired Chris a second time. He sold the property at a very good price shortly after the listing went active. Very happy with Chris over both listings."

"We worked with Chris on the purchase of a specific property in Summit County. Chris was both knowledgeable and available when we needed him to be able to consummate the transaction. As Denver based buyers looking to purchase another mountain property, it was important to be able to trust the realtor to handle things (walkthrough, inspection, closing, etc.) that we were not always able to attend. Chris made this work successfully for us."
