History

LOOKING BACK ON SUCCESS BUT NEVER RESTING ON IT.

Most great success stories have humble beginnings. For the Founders of Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, that story began back in 1962 when Rod Slifer became the first real estate broker in Vail. Today they continue their legacy as innovative and forward thinking leaders of the #1 real estate company in Summit County and the Vail Valley.
