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 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, Colorado; Napa Valley, California and Sun Valley, Idaho, as sales team manager.

Chris has returned home, has come full circle, and after joining Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate at Keystone Resort as the branch broker, he has now transitioned to the branch
broker position at the 117 S Main Street office in Breckenridge. 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.

My broker, Chris Lankhorst, was terrific. I didn't know which real estate company he was with when I asked him to sell my place and had he been with a different firm, I would still have engaged him.
