More like, welcome to the family.
Talk to any of our brokers and they’ll likely tell you that working with Slifer Smith & Frampton feels like family. Because at our core, we value relationships above all else. With our clients, and each other. It’s why over 270 of our brokers have an average 20 year tenure with us—longer than most in the industry.
Real estate experience is a plus. A “go-get-it” attitude is the only must.
Take your entrepreneurial spirit to the next level, backed by the most supportive team in the biz.
In every market we represent, our brokers are known for their tenacious attitude and unwavering commitment to customer service, ensuring the highest-levels of expertise for our clients across the state. And we like to think that’s due, in part, to the full-service, behind-the-scenes teams we staff to support them in doing what they do best.
From supportive, local management to broker development, marketing, IT, HR, accounting, and operations departments, we provide our brokers with comprehensive, ongoing training, industry-leading tech tools and marketing strategies, along with support in all aspects of the day-to-day. In fact, those of us on these support teams view our brokers as our clients—all 320 of them.
What success means to us.
It’s so much more than target goals and sales projections. We exist to help one another succeed in doing what we love, which is ensuring success for our buyers and sellers, and making sure they feel taken care of through every step of the process. This takes knowing where to collaborate or lean in for support, tapping our robust, state-wide network for specialized market insights or partnering with a broker in a different market to address your client’s needs.

Take it from one of our brokers:
Joining Slifer Smith and Frampton RE was the best career decision I have ever made. The brand is so well known that I get calls from clients wanting to sell and buy as they “know Slifer is the best” and “the you-do marketing speaks for itself”. (A couple of recent quotes). Expanding my industry knowledge was a huge component of my decision which is about to go to another level being a part of the Fourth St Crossing Sales Team in Silverthorne. Plus it goes without saying, I have had an amazing amount of support for my business being surrounded by the most professional, caring and fun team in the business.
— Broker Associate (Summit County), Sarah McNeill
One afternoon I walked into what I was told would be a meeting to discuss goals for the new year with a local corporate employer with whom I dedicated the past 25 years of my life. That meeting would be my last. My life as I knew it and the person I identified myself as being, all came to an abrupt end. I was terrified and felt completely lost. With two daughters in college and life's expenses at my doorstep, I was freaked out and felt abandoned and truly questioned my self worth. With an encouraging and compassionate nudge (from the VP of Marketing at Slifer) I decided to pursue a new career path as a Realtor. Studying for the exam was far from easy. However, the day I passed my Real Estate Licensing exam I made two calls. One to my wife, the other to my new family at Slifer Smith & Frampton. They both celebrated equally. Since that day I have found a new home and have been welcomed, supported and understood - forgiven for my mistakes - and honestly appreciated as the good person I had forgotten that I was. I approach each day with new-found enthusiasm, passion with the perspective of the abundance that life has for me. I didn't know it at the time, but now I know I have joined a group of like-minded caring fun-loving people and feel so grateful for the opportunity to be a member of this amazing family.
