About Me

     I was born and raised in New England and have lived and worked in a variety of resort locations both in the U.S. and internationally including: Maui, Hilton Head Island, the Caribbean, and Palm Beach.  My wife, Debby, and I relocated to Keystone from Miami, FL in 2008 to enjoy the unique mountain lifestyle that can only be found in the Colorado Rockies.  From skiing to mountain biking, from fly fishing to hiking - Keystone is unequaled in quality and its variety of vacation adventures.

     I've been a licensed real estate broker in several states for over 30 years.  During my career, I have managed the marketing and sale of over $1.5 billion of real estate assets including:  all types of residential products, fractionals and timeshares, hotels, commercial properties and undeveloped land.  And as a nationally registered, actively licensed Mortgage Loan Originator, I can also help you navigate the process of obtaining a mortgage loan, explain what best fits your personal needs, and how to proceed in the buying process.  Here in Summit County, I've helped clients ranging from first-time home buyers using USDA financing, to clients involved in transactions of many millions of dollars.

     I received my B.A. degree, magna cum laude, from Harvard University and my M.B.A. degree, with distinction, from Harvard Business School.  I obtained an M.S.A. degree from The George Washington University and attended Boston College and Suffolk University Law Schools.  And I have an extensive background running and turning around companies involved in large-scale resort, recreational and residential community development and operations.

     With this combination of experience and education, I offer my clients a level of analysis and knowledge of the resort real estate industry that most brokers can’t bring to the table. What to buy and when to buy are fundamental questions each client grapples with, but deeper analyses ranging from renting one's property to defray carrying costs or establishing fractional interests to maximize a property's investment potential are areas of expertise that I bring to my clients during the buying process.

     I'll put my extensive knowledge and experience in real estate marketing, sales, and development to work for you.  Whether you want to find your mountain dream home, retire in the mountains, or simply wish to upgrade, downsize, or sell your home in Summit County, I hope that you will allow me to assist you with all of your real estate needs.

"Brian was very helpful throughout the entire transaction. He showed us a variety of places and helped us to decide on our final purchase. He was very responsive and has an excellent understanding of the local area, keystone resort, and market data which he shared with us during our purchase."


"It was pure luck that we found Brian, as we connected with him through the Slifer website, but we could not have asked for a more responsive and delightful realtor. Since we did not live in the area, Brian was very accommodating of our limited availability and gave us much preliminary information via email so we could sift through properties from afar. He used our time very efficiently and and targeted only units that met our criteria. Our entire family found him to be extremely pleasant, which is important as you spend a fair amount of time driving around looking at properties.

Perhaps most important for this review is the fact that Brian helped us to get what was probably the best price of any unit sold in our complex! Even we were shocked at the great price he negotiated for us. I have already referred Brian to a friend, who used him to purchase a property in Dillon.

Brian is a skilled negotiator, an advocate for his clients and an absolutely delightful person with whom to work."
