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.

Chris Lankhorst is obviously a very experienced broker. He advised us well throughout the entire process from pricing, multiple offers, to negotiating throughinspection objections and closing. He got us the highest price received, by far, in the Lakeshore complex.

— Keystone Buyer

Chris Lankhorst has assisted us in three real estate transactions and each time has been extremely capable, professional and honest.

— Keystone Buyer from Texas

I have dealt with Chris for over 12 years and he has always been extremely responsive, courteous and available. He is trustworthy and experienced which is extremely important in these types of dealings.

— Copper Mountain Seller

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.

— Silverthorne Buyer

Chris was very good and professional. He kept me informed of important issues but also did not waste my time on little things.

— Keystone Seller

We were not expecting to sell and we're about ready to pull off the market, then we found Chris! Professionalism through and through! Thank you!

— Dillon Seller from California

Chris has handled all of our transactions (3 total now!) with professionalism and exceptional customer service! We would definitely use him for future transactions.

— Keystone Seller/Breckenridge Buyer

Chris was great - can't say enough great things about him and the entire process of working with him and SSF.

— Buyer

Chris L. is fantastic - one of the best Realtors I've worked with and I've done a lot of transactions.

— Colorado Buyer

Chris did an excellent job from our search to closing. It is stressful trying to close from 1,200 miles away, but Chris did our walk-through and handled other details to ensure success. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase real estate in Summit County!

— Keystone Buyer

I would highly recommend Chris. He made the process as easy as I could have hoped for. Pretty seamless process for the sale of a Colorado property when we live in the southeast.

— Keystone Seller

This was our first mountain property purchase as a family. We had been involved with rentals etc in the city of Denver. We made a 1/4 share purchase at the Cirque in Copper Mountain. We had a laundry list of questions as we were new to this process. Honestly, cannot say enough kind words about Chris. We met him later in 2014. He was at our side for over 4 months making sure we were placed in the best possible unit for the best possible price. He communicated, educated us, and made the process seamless! His knowledge and understanding of Summit was the clear difference. We spent our first weekend in our new 1/4 share this past Easter weekend. The experience exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait for the future! Thanks to Chris Lankhorst, my family is beyond happy! We could not of done it without him and cannot wait to introduce other friends and family to Chris as we know he will help them in the same manner he helped us. Chris is the gold standard to our family!

— Copper Mtn. Buyer

Nice job. Chris knew the market and was easy to work with.

— Keystone Buyer

Our broker Chris Lankhorst was fantastic to work with he was professional, polite, hard working, worked quickly on all transactions and there were a few times we would call him to see if we could meet with him on short notice and he was always able to fit us into his busy schedule. If we ever buy any other real estate in Summit county we definitely would like to work with Chris.

— Keystone Buyer

Chris is very knowledgeable about the market and has solid experience as evidenced by his ability to market and sell our property in a timely manner and to our satisfaction. Our experience with Chris and SSF is unbeatable.

— Cathy, Dillon Seller

Chris did an excellent job with our properties and was extremely professional in all cases. He was great to work with and kept us informed constantly about our status and any needs that he had. He even went out of his way to help us out in many cases with setting up repairs, receiving furniture, etc which was very appreciated.

— Anonymous

Since we live out-of-state, Chris went out of his way to prepare the condo and to simplify our sale.

— Barbara, Keystone Seller

Chris was the perfect broker for my transaction. I needed a knowledgeable, calm, and detail-oriented broker that listened to my needs and assisted me smoothly through the process. I am very pleased with the speed, efficiency, and attention of this deal. Thanks!

— Trevor, Dillon Buyer

Chris was outstanding. He looked after through every step of the process. I hope to work with him again in the future when we have the opportunity to buy again.

— Matt and Cori, Silverthorne Buyer

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.

— Michael, Keystone Buyer

Chris Lankhorst went far and above what normal expectations of a broker should be. We appreciate his extra work. He will definitely be our broker for any future transactions.

— Vern, Keystone Buyer

Chris Lankhorst is fantastic! This is the second property we have purchased with him and we will definitely return in the future when the need arises. Chris makes sure that every aspect from start to finish (and beyond) is taken care of. We only wish we would have had an experience like this when we purchased our primary residence! Thank you!

— Peter, Keystone Buyer

We had a very positive experience working with Chris. He listened to us, answered all of our questions in a timely fashion, helped us meet all of the deadlines. He is very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a lot of very helpful information. We truly appreciate his guidance and help.

— Hope, Silverthorne Buyer

Excellent service. We felt so well taken care of by our brokers. We had the pleasure of working with Chris S before he moved and then transferred to Chris Lankhorst. We have absolutely no complaints and highly recommend SSF. Thank you!

— Hilary, Dillon Buyer

Chris was extremely professional in how he handled both the seller and the buyer. He knew what to say to whom and how to get the sale. He did a great job.

— Kim, Keystone Seller

Chris was very knowledgeable about the market and gave us valuable advice about how to price our property and how long it might take to sell.

— Keystone Seller

Chris was extremely helpful and professional. I look forward to working with him throughout the home search and purchase process.

— Guy, Silverthorne Buyer

"I have worked with Chris on both sides of the real estate table as a buyer and a seller. Chris represented the seller when I purchased a property and really made the deal work when any "snags" arose. As a seller, he wanted to get the right price for the value and used the best methods to market. Stress wasn't a word or a feeling that came up when Chris sold the property. However, the words respect, trust and confidence would be used to describe our working relationship and the experience. Trust Chris with your real estate needs!"

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."
