Real estate agent Zittel joins Prudential Steamboat
Local real estate agent Stephan Zittel has joined Prudential Steamboat Realty. Formerly with High Mountain Sotheby's, Zittel also is a developer of high-end real estate projects in the Steamboat area including a multi-million dollar triplex project near the Rollingstone Golf Course and several single-family custom homes.
He graduated with honors from University of Colorado and earned his MBA from University of California at Berkeley before starting a successful small package delivery company in Denver with more than 60 employees.
"Stephan is a tremendous addition to our team," said Cam Boyd, co-owner of Prudential Steamboat Realty. "His track record in both small business and real estate development/sales is a testament to his drive and dedication."
New website launches to attract businesses
Steamboat area business owners and potential incoming businesses have a new, comprehensive online resource with the launch of a collaborative website created for the business and entrepreneur community.
The website, http://www.steamboatbiz.com, was created through a yearlong, cooperative effort among the 25-member volunteer Steamboat Springs Economic Development Committee, Routt County, city of Steamboat Springs, Colorado Mountain College in Steamboat and Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association.
"This new website will provide any prospective business looking at Steamboat with the information they need regarding our community and the assets it brings to the table," Chamber CEO Tom Kern said in a prepared statement. "The site also will provide our existing business community access to information they will need to help their business grow and prosper. Steamboat has always done a good job in assisting its existing businesses, and now we have an additional online tool."
Kern said the launch of the economic development website is the "first step in moving our community into a new era of economic development." He noted that the project would not have been possible without initial funding from the Routt County Board of Commissioners.
SteamboatBiz.com includes information about financial, strategic, networking, demographic and professional services for small businesses and entrepreneurs. Data for the site was compiled with assistance from Yampa Valley Data Partners and the Yampa Valley Entrepreneurship Center at CMC.
