Steamboat Springs Mark Dudley has joined the Vanatta Group at Prudential Steamboat Realty as marketing manager and broker/associate.
The announcement was made by Pam Vanatta, co-owner of Prudential Steamboat.
“Mark shares our commitment to client satisfaction and a competitive drive in the real estate market,” she said.
Dudley grew up in Steamboat Springs and attended the University of Colorado. He has been in the real estate industry since 2006 and previously split his time selling real estate between Steamboat and Hayden.
“I am really looking forward to working with the Vanatta Group,” he said. “The opportunity to work with a top broker, coupled with the team approach, will be a great place for me as I develop as a broker and marketing specialist.”
Scott Eggleston returns to Prudential Steamboat
Scott Eggleston returned to Prudential Steamboat Realty this month. He has been a full-time Realtor in the Steamboat Springs area for the past 28 years and co-founded the original Prudential office in 1989.
“Scott’s experience as a broker and passion for the Steamboat lifestyle is a great asset to our office, as well as his clients. We are thrilled to have him back on the team,” broker/owner Cam Boyd said.
“A nationally recognized brand coupled with innovative technology and creative marketing practices create a strong competitive advantage when buying and selling property in today’s market,” Eggleston said.
Drahota recognized for Trailhead Lodge work
Drahota recently was recognized with the Associated General Contractors of Colorado Silver Award of Merit for Construction Excellence for Trailhead Lodge in Steamboat Springs in the $30 million to $60 million category.
Drahota completed the building during two years of record snowfall. The project finished 42 days ahead of schedule and under budget.
Steamboat averages 360 inches of snow each year, and during construction, Drahota’s team placed 8,000 cubic yards of concrete, while the ski mountain registered 489 inches of snow. More than 80 feet of snow fell during the two winters of construction activity, 90 percent of the concrete placement occurred during these snowstorms and only one of the 12 major pours was postponed.
“In Drahota’s 36-year history, I’ve never seen a group of people work better together,” President Terry Drahota said. “Everybody worked hand in hand to create a magnificent building.”
Ian Hamilton signs on with Colorado Group
Ian Hamilton is the newest broker/associate at Colorado Group Realty, Steamboat Springs’ largest independent real estate company equally owned by its broker/owners.
“Our philosophy is unique compared to many other real estate companies with a focus on mentoring, teamwork and depth of knowledge,” said Dave Hartley, broker/owner at Colorado Group Realty.
Hamilton brings with him more than nine years of residential real estate experience from Milwaukee, where he was an eight-time member of the President’s Club, an award given only to the top-producing agents from the state’s largest company of more than 1,200 agents.
