Home Ownership in a Vacation Wonderland

Home Ownership in a Vacation Wonderland

When I think of Colorado, I think of 300 days of sunshine, majestic mountain peaks, fresh powder on the ski slopes, and breathtaking views. I now also think of Slifer Smith and Frampton, one of our newest members joining us from Vail Valley. We’re thrilled to welcome Slifer Smith & Frampton to The Enterprise Network, and we’re equally thrilled to announce the launch of their new sites on our platform!

Serving Eagle and Summit counties for more than 50 years, Slifer Smith & Frampton is recognized as the first brokerage in the region. Now they’re the leading brokerage in the area and represent resort towns such as Vail, Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch, Breckenridge and surrounding areas. Comprised of over 150 brokers in 20 offices, the Slifer Smith & Frampton team has the same passion for the area that started it all; a characteristic emulated in the design of their new sites.

A fresh new look for two distinct counties

Because they serve two very distinct areas, one of our main goals was to create individual sites for each county. When first visiting, customers are given the option to select their area of preference to begin the home search experience.


Once a user clicks through to one of the counties represented by Slifer Smith & Frampton, they enter a site tailored to the unique needs of those living in the area.


Selling a Way of Life

Slifer Smith & Frampton does much more than sell homes; they sell a lifestyle. Ski in / ski out homes are at the top of most buyer’s wish list, and location on the mountain is paramount. Therefore, map search results include ski trails to give a better understanding of the home’s location in relation to the slopes.
