Please Excuse My Absence

I know it has been a while since I have sent my "monthly" newsletter to clients. My very first newsletter was in April of 2013 and I was very disciplined in sending them out - until April of 2016. I must apologize, as I have heard from many followers that they like keeping informed on the Steamboat Springs real estate market, happenings around town and little about what I'm up to.

Well, the latter is one of two major reasons for the lull. This past summer Mary and I had two of our children get married...six weeks apart! Our daughter's wedding was in Steamboat at the top of the gondola and our son's wedding was in Denver. Our youngest daughter is now a junior in college and playing volleyball, and the travelling associated with her games, along with numerous other events, have also kept us busy.

From a business standpoint, I've been as busy as ever. The market keeps on improving and my real estate practice growing.

Over the past three years I feel very fortunate for all that has happened in such a positive way.

Now, on to Steamboat Springs real estate... 
My NEW Website is LIVE!
Amidst all the chaos this year, I decided to create a new website to better serve my clients and new customers with information to help them understand the nuances of, and navigate through, the Steamboat Springs real estate market. It took longer than expected (no surprise), but I am very excited about the result! It just went live last Friday.
The new site is the easiest way on the internet to search for Steamboat Springs properties. When I designed this site, I wanted to make sure clients wouldn't miss the property of their dreams. So not only can you search for properties by inputting your own criteria, you can also search specific to the lifestyle, property type, location and neighborhoods most important to you.
Additional features include:
  • Tips for Buyers and Sellers
  • Buyers can set up personal property search accounts
  • Sellers receive individual website pages for their listings
  • Information on building, subdivisions, regulations, etc.
  • Map Search
  • Newest Listing Search
  • Quarterly Steamboat Analyst & Newsletter
  • Updated Market Statistics
  • Property and educational videos
