Acquisition Creates Premier Regional Real Estate Company in Colorado

Acquisition Creates Premier Regional Real Estate Company in Colorado

Avon, Colo.-based Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate acquires Palladium Properties.

 

Palladium Properties

Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, a longtime fixture in Colorado’s central mountain communities, has announced the acquisition of Palladium Properties, a boutique and independent luxury property brokerage firm based in Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley.

The transaction will create a powerful real estate company with international resources and reach, yet locally owned and dedicated to the communities it serves. The new brokerage firm will retain the iconic, regionally and nationally recognized brand of Slifer Smith and Frampton Real Estate, a 60-year-old firm that has served such mountain communities as Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone.

The acquisition will expand Slifer Smith and Frampton’s footprint to include Aspen and Colorado’s Western Slope.

John Pfeiffer, president and employing broker of SSF, says the acquisition “just made natural sense.” The company will continue to be headquartered in Avon, Colo., with corporate offices in Aspen and Frisco, and will maintain a significant presence in mountain resort communities from Keystone to Aspen. With 27 offices, the company will host just over 200 brokers — 190 from SSF and 30 from Palladium — and serve Aspen, Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, and Keystone — and the communities in between.

Palladium Properties will assume the SSF name and brand. All office locations will remain open, and there will be no changes in the team. Krista Klees will continue as leader and run day-to-day operations throughout the Roaring Fork Valley.
