The Roaring Fork Valley's Real Estate Company
Krista Klees - Roaring Fork Valley Market President
Krista Klees has secured a reputation as one of the most sought-after real estate brokers in the
Aspen and Roaring Fork Valley, having dedicated over 35 years to building and growing two of
the region’s most successful independent brokerages. Now, as President of Slifer, Smith &
Frampton, Roaring Fork Valley, she pairs the backing of this trusted, legacy brokerage with the
unmatched expertise of her team of brokers and associates—all equally passionate about
ensuring the highest levels of service for their clients.
While Krista specializes in Aspen’s highest-profile listings, she takes an understated approach
that values privacy and discretion, endearing her to her discriminating clientele. Being selective
with the clients and homes she represents allows her to dedicate the personal attention and
hands-on effort each deserves. Her many years in the business arm her with an unrivaled
understanding of the local market and long-standing, trusted relationships with her extensive
network of brokers and long-time locals—so when it comes time to find the perfect buyer or
seller for any home, Krista simply knows the right folks to call. Backed by the international
prestige of Forbes Global Properties and the Slifer network of brokers throughout the state,
which brings global and state-wide exposure to her high-end listings.
Named Realtor of the Year 2020 by the Aspen Board of Realtors, and former president and
current board member of ABOR, Krista brings a rare, ego-less attitude to her work. Ask her to
list her previous year’s sales and you’ll likely be out of luck, as she prefers to let her reputation
and recommendations from clients and peers do the talking. What they’d likely tell you is that
her passion for Aspen, the local real estate community, and of course her Slifer family, shines
through in all she does—tirelessly working as a dedicated advocate of her hometown, her
brokers, and of course, her clients.
