Michelle, Clay Garner join Prudential Steamboat
Michelle and Clay Garner have joined Prudential Steamboat.
The announcement was made last week by Cam Boyd, co-owner of Prudential.
"These agents share Prudential Steamboat Realty's commitment to client satisfaction and a competitive drive in the real estate market. They are exactly the type of associates we are seeking as we continue to grow and develop as a company," Boyd said.
Michelle and Clay moved to Prudential from Intrawest-owned, Steamboat Ski & Resort Realty.
Clay has lived in the Yampa Valley for more than 20 years while Michelle moved here more recently.
When asked about their decision to move their licenses to Prudential, Michelle said, "We asked ourselves 'Where do we want to establish our real estate business?' And the obvious answer here in Steamboat Springs is Prudential Steamboat Realty. Prudential offers a solid foundation for agents to build a successful career selling real estate. Our business, as well as our clients, will benefit greatly from the professionalism of the firm."
