“I firmly believe in Slifer Smith & Frampton’s corporate culture and how they have a grassroots involvement in the community from top to bottom,” Ritsch said. “I feel like I’m at home with Slifer. It’s not like with a national chain — it’s really a family and the depth of experience is unprecedented.”
