The 16 real estate agents at RE/MAX Steamboat have had ample reason for celebration this spring.
The Colorado headquarters of RE/MAX in Greenwood village announced May 15 that the Steamboat office led the state in volume per agent. RE/MAX has 104 full service brokerages and almost 2,900 agents in Colorado. Bob Hall, managing broker and one of the five owners of the Steamboat brokerage, said the closing of eight Antlers condominiums, all in the $1 million price range, helped his office's rating this spring.
Another co-owner of the Steamboat brokerage, Stephan Baden, was recently inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame, an honor reserved for brokers who have helped at least 350 families buy and sell properties in their careers.
Hall said that for the third time in four years, RE/MAX Steamboat led the five-state region in dollar volume in low-density markets in 2001, closing 273 transactions valued at more than $77 million.
