"Chris was a terrific partner in our home search and purchase. He listened carefully to our needs, was very relatable and was efficient in identifying properties that were a perfect fit. Chris was super responsive which was critical considering how busy the market was during our search. I’m sure he had several other clients but we never knew it. He was very organized and attentive.

Overall, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone. The support he provided during the search, close and getting us settled post-close was superb. Can’t say enough good things about our experience."


"Chris was great to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the condos at Copper, their history, HOA issues, building pros and cons, etc. This inside knowledge was very helpful. He also found the condo that I bought before it came on the market and I was able to see it the first day. We had it under contract the next day and closed 15 days later. Chris was very responsive to all of my questions and issues. He is also a very pleasant and friendly person and it was a joy to work with him. If you are looking for a property in Summit County and want a knowledgeable, professional and good person to work with, I recommend calling Chris Lankhorst."

"I consider Chris to be a trusted adviser and friend. From start to finish on multiple transactions Chris has always gone the extra mile to ensure a prompt and problem-free experience. Thank you Chris!"

—Steve Marshall

"We had some challenges in the sale of a condo that Chris handled for us. He was professional, creative, he listens well, helpful and follows through. We have been trying to get this sold for a long time (no fault of the market!!) and Chris was able to facilitate the sale of a difficult situation. And he did it just about the time the Coronavirus shut down was happening!! Thanks Chris!!"

"Chris was attentive, responsive, knowledgable and professional. He has a great personality which made the partnership very fun. He went above and beyond. I had many questions about the home outside of the norm and he never said I don't know, he always came back with an answer."


"we have chosen Chris several times for buying and selling property in Colorado and every time he finds us a beautiful home and setting. He has also worked hard at selling our properties with alot of ambition and dedication. We will always turn to Chris when we need a good broker."


"Chris was the best realtor I've ever worked with. He sold my condo for way more than I expected, and it went under contract in 9 days. I would highly recommend him!!!!"


"Chris heped my partner and I purchase a rental property here in Breckenridge. He made the process super easy and super quick. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking at a property in summit county."


"Chris was very knowledgeable about properties in the area we were searching for a vacation home. When we had difficulty finding a home in our desired area he helped guide us to expand our search to find the perfect home in a town which we would’ve probably overlooked if he hadn’t made the recommendation."


"Chris is a pleasure to work with. Friendly, knowledgeable and very efficient, selling was a quick and seamless process with him guiding us every step of the way."


"Chris was very helpful throughout the buying process. He kept us well informed. He put us in touch with a great lender. He was always easy to reach to answer our questions. He made us feel comfortable enough to make this purchase from out of state. He was pleasant and courteous and represented our interests competently."


"I loved working with Chris and Tracy. They listened to what we needed and helped in every way. Communication is important in a long-distance transaction, and they took care of all of the details! Second time working with Chris, I highly recommend him."


"Chris Lankhorst did a superb job for us throughout the recent sale of our home in Dillon, Colorado. His professionalism, knowledge of the market, experience in selling homes in our neighborhood and the ability to listen to us as his clients yet temper our wishes with his good judgement made our experience positive and profitable.

Chris’s reputation for fairness and the respect of his fellow realtors was also a contributing factor in the sale as his colleagues knew that one of his listings could be relied on to be as presented. He was very timely in all his dealings from the virtual tour production to the multi listing, to ads, and all interaction with the public. Additionally, he was meticulous in keeping us informed about the feedback from showings and open houses. He negotiated the final contract of sale to everyone’s satisfaction and the inspection and closing went smoothly. We would highly recommend Chris Lankhorst to anyone who wishes to buy or sell a home in Summit County."


"We’ve worked with Chris on 3 separate real estate transactions and all have gone incredibly smooth! Chris is super easy to work with, and really goes above and beyond. This was so helpful since we don’t live in the area full time.
We highly recommend Chris!"

"Chris and Tracy were fabulous to work with. Very responsive and made the process convenient for me. Even though I bought a timeshare, the process was like buying a home. They were available every step of the way and responsive to all my questions."


"We had a great experience working with Chris. He was very knowledgeable about the area and was able to quickly narrow down options for us. He responded to all of our questions and requests right away and made the whole process very easy. I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone looking in the area."


"When working with Chris, he understood exactly what we wanted. We first bought a Condo in Breckenridge in 2010, it was effortless. We recently purchased a home in Blue River and couldn't be happier. I would recommend Chris to everyone who needs a professional. He truly is just that!"


"Chris Lankhorst is a polished, professional real estate agent. His experience with new construction homes is unparalleled, and he is a great communicator. Chris is attentive to clients and performed exceptionally between our builder representatives and potential buyers. With Chris' participation, the delivery of our new homes went seamlessly."


"Chris Lankhorst was a pleasure to work with. He expedited my purchase in something like 7 business days from start to finish. All aspects of the deal went very smoothly. He was clearly communicating with the seller as much as with me as he arranged an agreement that ended up satisfactory to both despite being far apart at the start. He also provided very useful information about other properties that he was not involved with. All in all it was a pleasure to work with a realtor who is this competent and efficient."


"Chris and his team were invaluable to making the purchase of our home a reality. We live in a different state and having someone on the ground that could be 'more than a realtor' was a must-have for us.
Chris and his team provided timely interactions, support, and communication with the builder, knowledge about the community and surrounding area, and just plain old great service and friendliness.

He was the perfect solution for us.
thank you!"

"We used Chris Lankhorst as our realtor to find our new home in Summit County. We had been working with a realtor in Denver, but decided Denver was not where we wanted to be. We asked our Denver realtor if she could recommend a realtor to help us with our search. She was familiar with Chris through her firm and she highly recommended him. Chris was a perfect fit for us. He has a relaxed approach and was there to help us, not to push us. He was very knowledgeable of the area and the various opportunities. We found a condo that was under construction that met our needs. Since we are from Michigan, it was very helpful, almost a requirement, that we had a local realtor representing our needs and interests. The build process was a long and drawn out experience. Chris kept us informed along the way and was there to help us through the issues. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for real estate in Summit County."


"Chris has superior knowledge of the Summit County market. He works hard to stay informed of current developments and his network is second-to-none. He's also a great person, friendly and upbeat at all times! I wouldn't work with anyone else!"

—Damian Arguello

"Chris is truly a professional. He was always quick to return my calls, anticipated most of my questions before I even asked them, understood the anxieties harbored by the prospective buyer, and made the whole buying process from initial inquiry through closing a breeze. I just closed on our new property a few days ago, and couldn't be more content with our purchase."


"Chris was a tremendous resource. He worked with us over 16 months, helping us understand the market as we slowly narrowed our long-distance search. We truly enjoyed working with him."


"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!"


"Chris Lankhorst made my selling experience easy. The listing was up quickly at an optimal list price that brought in a quick offer. The sales price negotiations were favorable and from that point, it was smooth sailing all the way to closing. Chris made sure all of the paperwork, inspections, inventories, etc. moved forward as planned to meet the scheduled closing."


"Working with Chris is like working with a family member. He makes you feel like your listing, or your search for property, is his first priority.
His personality, service standards, market knowledge, and attention to detail, make him an OUTSTANDING partner to serve your needs. We can't say enough about how appreciative we were of his efforts and skill in the sale of our property in Summit County. Highly recommended!!!"


"Chris is very professional and engaging. He immediately put us at ease with the process of listing our condominium and provided advice about readying our unit for sale in order to provide potential buyers with the best first impressions. He introduced us to a local Title company with 1031 exchange support and the Sale of our mountain condominium was quick and timed to meet our needs."


"Chris definitely knows his Summit County real estate business. Very knowledgeable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend him and would use him for our next Summit County buy or sale."


"Excellent negotiator. Very professional. always available to answer questions and help with potential buyers.
Received feedback quickly from showings.
Seemed to be looking out for your best interest"


"Chris is knowledgeable, professional, and responsive. He gave us excellent service. He and his staff handled all problems promptly. He is especially knowledgeable of the summit county real estate market."


"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."


"Chris was professional and accommodating in every aspect of the transaction. He functions at the top of the game as a relator. We had a long distance situation to deal with as the property sold is 1000 miles away from current residence. He made this process smooth, and without a glitch."


"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."


"We have worked with Chris to buy and sell multiple properties over the last ten years. Chris and his team work with honesty and integrity. Chris communicates clearly and has calmly guided us through the process each time. He has incredible knowledge about the market and the area. We do not hesitate to recommend him and hope that we will be able to work with Chris again in the future."


"We bought and sold this property with Chris Langhorst. He is an excellent agent for buying and selling resort properties in Keystone. He knows the community well and works within any budget. We had zero stress selling this property thanks to Chris."

—Eli Morton

"Chris proved to be honest, accessible, responsive, and knowledgeable. With his assistance I found and secured a ski condo that my family loves. I will definitely call on Chris again when I am looking to upsize and you should too."


"Chris was easy going, friendly, and funny, while working hard to make sure we viewed the best possible opportunities within my price range. He has extensive knowledge of Summit County and was willing to discuss the pros and cons of each property. I value his knowledge and experience and was thankful to be working with him to make sure I was investing in the right opportunity."


"Chris was a referral and now we know why.... one of the easiest and smoothest home buying experience that we've had. Every timeline date was met and closed on time."

—scot babcock

"Chris found the perfect condo that was for sale by owner and not on MLS. He was flexible in meeting outside of typical business hours which was much appreciated given we both work full time in Denver. He communicated with our lender and made things so easy for us. Glad to own in Keystone - thanks Chris!"

—shanlee davis

"Chris is a wonderful real estate agent. He did an amazing job brokering our transaction and got us into our dream home! He sharp, personable and hardworking and will make sure your expectations are met. I would highly recommend him!"


"He did a great job selling my condo and always gave great advice. He also spent a lot on advertising and sent me copies of ads, let me know when folks looked at the unit and what their feedback was. very happy"


"Chris Lankhorst has represented us through three home transactions - his expertise guided us easily through the sale of our townhome (2015) and purchase of another + the purchase of a townhome for my mother ( 2016). He helped us sell & buy properties in a very timely fashion! Chris is extremely knowledgeable about the market and very personable to deal with! We highly recommend him and will be contacting him for any future property sales/purchases!!"


"Chris was personable and knowledgable. He understood what we were looking for and how to negotiate a fair price. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a home or condo in Summit County."


"Chris has been our realtor on three transactions in Summit County. Each time, we have been very pleased with his negotiating skills, quick response time on any questions and follow-up after thee sale. It made a stressful time much easier knowing our realtor would be on top of things in case we missed anything!"


"I recently sold my property thru Chris Lankhorst and Slifer, Smith and Frampton. Chris was great to work with, professional, knowledgeable and always readily available. He was always realistic in discussing the expectations that I had while pricing and negotiating the sale of my property. I would recommend him to anybody."
