Prudential Realty earns top honors in region

— Prudential Steamboat Realty was recognized as a top company performer in the first quarter of 2007. Prudential Steamboat was the top office in the 14-state central region in terms of sales volume.

In individual awards, Pam Vanatta took first place for her sales volume in the first quarter, with Chad Fleisher coming in second.

The Olson Team received first place for their success in number of units sold in the first quarter, with Vanatta receiving second place for number of units sold.

SmartWool shuts down for day of volunteering

On Thursday, SmartWool employees in Steamboat Springs and Boulder got out of the office for a day of paid volunteer work as part of "Smartwool - Earth Day." The business's corporate office in Steamboat and product development office in Boulder both were closed for business.
