Hall and Hall firm opens in Steamboat

Hall & Hall, a full-service rural real estate firm, recently opened an office at 3001 S. Lincoln Ave. in Steamboat Springs. The new office is managed by broker Brian Smith, the latest addition to the Hall & Hall team. The Steamboat office will focus on ranch and recreational properties throughout Northwest Colorado and Southern Wyoming.

Smith has a master's degree in real estate from the University of Denver's Daniels College of Business. Before joining Hall & Hall, Smith worked for a major commercial real estate investor.

"Hall & Hall provides the best opportunity for me to match buyer with property," Smith said.

An avid outdoorsman, he is a member of a half dozen conservation organizations oriented to sportsmen.

Smith is a licensed real estate broker in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and New Mexico.
