The Group Celebrates One Year Anniversary of Expansion to Steamboat Springs

Todd Sledge August 8, 2023

This August, The Group celebrated the one-year anniversary of our expansion to Steamboat Springs in 2022. This expansion marks not only a strategic move into one of Colorado’s premier resort regions but also a harmonious collaboration between two like-minded real estate firms, The Group Real Estate and Colorado Group Realty (CGR). The acquisition included CGR’s main office in downtown Steamboat, as well as a second office in nearby Hayden.
Let’s delve into the journey of this remarkable partnership and its impact on both the local real estate landscape and the vibrant Steamboat Springs community.

About Our Steamboat Team

Our Steamboat Springs team shines as a leading force in Yampa Valley’s real estate for more than 25 years. Anchored in Steamboat Springs, our 80+ strong broker team commands a remarkable 25% market share due to an unwavering dedication to client satisfaction. Assisting over 1,000 Routt County clients on an annual basis, The Group’s success is propelled by innovative technology, cutting-edge marketing, and global relationships, all culminating in unparalleled client satisfaction. We consistently rank among the top firms in the area — and most recently, we were nominated for “Best of the Boat 2023 Real Estate Firm.” Operating from prime locations in Old Town and Hayden, our mission is clear: to apply all we know to help everyone go from the life they have to the life they dream about.

Our Partnership

The merger of Colorado Group Realty and The Group Real Estate in 2022 united two kindred firms with shared principles, bolstered by affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and a common commitment to the Ninja Selling sales philosophy created by The Group co-founder Larry Kendall.
“We have had a long-standing synergy with Colorado Group Realty and have worked closely together over the years,” said Group President and CEO Brandon Wells. “To finally come together to strengthen our culture of excellence in real estate service, relationships and involvement in our local communities is a dream come true.”

Robust Resort Town

The Group now gains a presence in one of the country’s most dynamic resort communities. In 2020, Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. announced plans to expand the ski area by 355 acres, install a second gondola, and a new base that will include shopping, dining, and improved navigation — all part of a plan that would make Steamboat one of North America’s largest ski resorts.
Because of its relatively traffic-free access from Northern Colorado, Steamboat is also an increasingly popular destination for residents of Larimer and Weld counties. This makes it an incredibly attractive place to purchase a vacation home. After all, nearly 25% of Steamboat buyers are Front Range residents! Having boots on the ground helps us better assist these buyers, whether they are coming from Northern Colorado or elsewhere throughout the country or the world.
“Steamboat Springs and the Yampa Valley are truly a special place, and we are honored to be a part of these communities,” Wells said.

Looking Ahead

The Group Real Estate’s expansion to Steamboat Springs represents more than just a geographic milestone. This integration of two distinct legacies into one cohesive entity serves as a testament to the strength of collaboration and the power of shared values.
As The Group continues to thrive in this scenic resort region, our journey stands as an inspiration to the power of partnerships, the pursuit of excellence, and the profound impact of serving clients and communities with unwavering dedication. With the echoes of one year celebrating our combined achievements, The Group’s future in Steamboat Springs shines bright with promise and possibility.
