On the Market: Johnson joins Prudential as a broker associate

Sharon Johnson

Sharon Johnson has joined Prudential Steamboat Realty as a full-time broker associate in the Hayden office.

A Colorado native, she started her real estate career in Tucson, Ariz., in 1998. She has experience in human resources, financial services and communications. Johnson decided to continue her real estate career when she returned home to Colorado with her husband, Steve, and daughters, Laura and Emma, in 2000.

“Choosing to join the team at Prudential Steamboat Realty was an easy decision for me,” she said. “Their commitment to being the top real estate office in Routt County coupled with their community involvement and support was very appealing for me.”

Johnson volunteers at Hayden schools and her church and enjoys the outdoor recreation the community offers. She works out of the Prudential office at 151 W. Jefferson Ave. in Hayden.

Susanna Field, of Buyers Resource Real Estate, said she has recently worked with two cash buyers who had very specific requirements.

One buyer had “a million dollars in his pocket,” but upon leaving town said “he hadn’t seen anything he couldn’t live without,” Field said.

The buyer was particular about the finishes and features in the properties he looked at and was not willing to pay more than $500 per square foot.

Anther cash buyer to whom Field showed property was looking for a three-bedroom condominium within three blocks of the ski area and was unwilling to spend more than $350 per square foot, Field said.

Both buyers were professionals in fields related to the real estate/development industry.
