Colorado Group Realty announces awards
Three of Colorado Group Realty's broker-owners were recognized at the company's Dec. 8 holiday party, where Ron Wendler was named Broker of the Year; Joyce Hartless, the Rising Star; and Nick Metzler, the Top Producer for 2007.
Wendler was honored as Broker of the Year for his contributions not just to Colorado Group Realty, but to the real estate industry in general and especially across the Yampa Valley.
Hartless was named 2007's Rising Star because of the dramatic growth her business demonstrated in the short time since she joined Colorado Group Realty earlier this year.
Metzler, who was named Top Producer for 2007, is one of the founding members of Colorado Group Realty and a past president of the Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors.
