"Steamboat is truly paradise, and I want to show others what an amazing life you can create here."

Alex Pond became a buyers agent with The Steamboat Group after spending 13 years living in the city. He discovered that his greatest passion is working with people to help them find their place in our community.

Alex moved from Vermont in 2005 with a passion for skiing but found that Steamboat had that and so much more to offer. Along with amazing outdoor amenities, Alex discovered a community that supported a healthy lifestyle and a great family life for his daughter Reesa.

His experience as a property manager for over 12 years at Colorado Mountain College and the Parks & Recreation Department in Steamboat gives Alex a great understanding of how our community works. He is also one of the best sources you will find for local knowledge on where to find your next adventure.

While living in Steamboat and surrounded by talented athletes, Alex found his passion for endurance sports and quickly became a recognized name in both local and state mountain bike races, competing professionally for 6 years as well as ski mountaineering during the winter. With the same hard work, determination, and love of guiding others through the backcountry, Alex is committed to helping guide you through the home buying process and learning all you want to know about the Steamboat community.

What a super experience with selling our condo.  It was easy, convenient, and we got top dollar.  Alex was our agent and exceeded our expectation every step of the way.  I ahve bought/sold 7 houses in my lifetime, this was the easiest transaction, by far! Its bitter sweet to sell our place, because we love it in Steamboat, but Alex got our unit sold in less than 24 hours, and got us top dollar. 

Top notch job!!

I would highly recommend Alex and The Steamboat Group to sell your home!!
Scott Scoggins
The Steamboat Group was an excellent choice for us. They listened to our needs and concerns. They alerted us with any changes in the market and went above and beyond showing us properties. I truly enjoyed my experience with Alex Pond and I will definitely work with him again if the need arises.
Paula T.
Alex helped us buy our house in Oak Creek and it was always a pleasure to run into him around Routt Co. afterwards...When we decided we were going to be moving we contacted Alex to help with the sale. Alex, Nicolette, and Mariana were very professional and very helpful to us as first time sellers. Really happy that we went with Alex and the Steamboat Group again!
Will and Karla
The team at Steamboat Real Estate was fantastic to work with! They were proactive with every step and made the purchase super easy. I highly recommend working with them.
Barry Hulce
The whole team was wonderful to work with. Very knowledgeable, generous, no-nonsense and just what we were looking for. Our contract was small but complicated and they worked hard to get us to the finish line. Communication was prompt and thorough and we are excited to now call Steamboat home. I would recommend them without hesitation and am very grateful.
Ed Hoffman
Alex Pond and his team were excellent. The Steamboat Real Estate group are professionals from start to finish, with an unmatched knowledge of the market, regional regulations and local businesses. Alex helped navigate a high-end home purchase in Steamboat while we were living out of town, going above and beyond to accommodate us. He truly earned our trust and respect. The process was seamless. Without question, all future sales will be handled by Alex
Jessica Okun
Alex and his team went above and beyond. This is the second time we've worked with Alex and this time he sold our current property and found us a new one. Everyone on his team is amazing, including the photographer who made our property stunning in the sales materials -- so much so it sold in days! We highly recommend Alex and his team to anyone interested in property in Steamboat!
Matt Larson
We worked with Alex Pond on purchasing our property in Steamboat Springs. We found him efficient, effective and very pleasant to work with. He bent over backwards for us and highly recommend him.
Sharon Zambrzuski
We had an amazing experience working with Alex and the Steamboat Group. Their website was terrific at keeping us up to date on the market, and Alex was incredibly helpful at pinning down the right location for our rental investment. We're very excited to make Steamboat living a part of our family life.
David Tishgart
My husband and I began our search with the Steamboat Real Estate group in the spring of 2022 and began working with Alex Pond. My review will not represent the justice due of the experience. Alex and his team were truly fantastic. Alex was thoughtful, considerate, and most of all patient as we had some specifics in mind for what we were looking for. I truly appreciate his keen ability to listen and present the properties that were most like what we had requested. He has gone above and beyond in my opinion as he continues post sale to help us navigate areas that we have questions and concerns about. I highly recommend Steamboat Real Estate Group and working with Alex Pond.
Gabria Cathcart
 Wow. These guys rock! As our seller's agent, Alex Pond was stellar. We had known him from a previous business relationship(as well as from the neighborhood) and the Steamboat Group Realtors had assisted with several tricky home sales near by, so we decided to give 'em a shot. From signing the listing agreement through closing every aspect was on time, accurate and professional. Advice was solid, and the whole team was available when needed but we never felt "pestered". From Jon and Wendy Wade's commitment to supporting community projects to the furry pals in the office, this really did feel like a family. Kudos all around!
Dave Hanley
Alex and the Steamboat Group were amazing. Our house just sold (less than a month after listing) and for more than we asked. They are a great team, easy to work with, and very efficient. We highly recommend them.
Gail Hanley
Five stars for sure! Alex and Nicollette were excellent to work with. They were always quick to respond to my questions and always accommodated my last minute trips to Steamboat for showings. They were also very helpful navigating Steamboat's new short term rental zoning. I would absolutely use them again for my real estate needs!
Seth Gordon
Wonderful group of professionals. We did both a sale and a purchase and it was smooth experience. I highly recommend Derek and Alex for all your real estate needs!
Greg Metzel
a day agoNEWCan’t say enough good things about Alex and his company, The Steamboat Group. Started looking at properties in Steamboat online in 2020, while caring for my father. I had been researching where I wanted to move to when the time came, and Steamboat seemed like a really good fit. My plan was to use inheritance money to purchase a condo and live there. My father passed in 2021, and through out that year, Alex had kept in touch. Finally my dream of owning a place in Steamboat came to fruition, and with Alex’s help, we closed in 3 weeks, beating out another offer. Alex always kept me informed and appreciated his tenacity. I chose Steamboat Group because I like the philosophy of giving back to their community and Jon Wade. I’m lucky that the day I called to inquire on some properties, I was given to Alex Pond. I ended up moving to Newport Beach, but couldn’t get Steamboat out of mind. The townhouse I purchased is now a long term rental for a local single mom who was pushed out of Steamboat because of the high cost of rents. Making it affordable for her to live there is my small way of giving back to this extraordinary community and look forward to visiting as much as I can!
Mary Mortensen
Alex was great to work with as well as the entire Steamboat Group. We purchasing from another state and the transaction was smooth and handled professionally by Alex and the team. If we needed something or a question answered Alex was available at all times..
Thomas Cathcart
Alex Pond and his team were helpful without being pushy through our process to purchase property in Steamboat. We truly appreciated their local knowledge of the market. I would recommend Alex for your real estate needs.
Shane Jensen
Alex Pond helped us get our first home in Steamboat. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. Their staff was extremely great towards the end too, typically about the time it begins to get stressful. All in all, It was a very, VERY smooth process. 5 Stars!
Alex and the entire team at The Steamboat Group are amazing! They made the entire process so easy and were incredibly helpful the whole time. I can’t recommend them enough. Best realtors in Steamboat!

I worked with Alex Pond over a pretty long period of time and he always responded, stayed engaged, and ultimately found what we were looking for. I would highly recommend Alex to any one looking for a property in the Steamboat/Stagecoach area.
Jason Barta
We couldn't be happier about our experience with Alex Pond.
Alex and his team made the purchase of our purchase of our Steamboat property so easy. We live on the East coast, so most of our corresponding was handled remotely and Alex guided us through the whole process and introduced us to the right professionals to make this transaction super smooth. We would highly recommend Alex and his team.
Lisa Getter
Alex Pond was a true pleasure to work with and very professional. We were looking for the perfect place in North Routt County and Alex was patient as it took almost a year to find exactly what we were looking for. Today we consider Alex friend and recommend him highly. Randy and Michelle

Thanks to Alex Pond and the Steamboat Group for making our real estate transaction enjoyable.

Chris DuRoss
Alex Pond and his team at The Steamboat Group made the purchase of our condo from out-of-state a breeze.  With his calm and professional demeanor, Alex listened well to our wants and needs.  He educated us on contracts and obligations and was absolutely the best at pointing out opportunities we had not previously considered.  We would highly recommend Alex to anyone considering buying or selling real estate in Steamboat.
Tammy Larson
"Alex Pond did a great job helping us purchase our first home. He guided us through the home buying process. We found Alex to be accessible and able to answer all of our questions along the way. With his help we were able to come up with a competitive offer and ultimatley get the house that we wanted."
The Steamboat Group and Alex Pond are the reason we found our dream vacation home that also serves as a great investment property.  Alex acted fast and walked through the property when we couldn't be there in person.  He advised us to make just the right offer and we are so pleased because we absolutely love the home.  More importantly, Alex helped us even after we closed helping us find referrals for electricians and hand men which we couldn't find on our own.  We loved working with Alex and couldn't be happier with the search in a touch market.
Claire Lucas
Worked with Alex Pond at The Steambot Group. Alex is a great guy, easy to work with, professional, responsive and will go the extra mile to get the deal closed for you.  He will be there at each step in the process to guide you, provide advice and negotiate on your behalf.  Alex has everything you want and more in a real estate agent. If I could give him 6 stars I would. Cheers!
S. Jeffery Jackson
My husband and I worked with Alex Pond to purchase our home in Steamboat. He was diligent, patient, and very responsive. It was a tough market with limited inventory and we weren't sure we were going to be able to find something in time for our move and our daughter to start school. Alex is very well connected and he helped us find a property that was off market. We love the house and location and the transaction really couldn't have gone any smoother. We would highly recommend Alex!!
Megan Haubelt
We worked with Alex Pond. He did an incredible job for us. We weren’t ready to purchase a home in Steamboat, but Alex found us a home that we couldn’t walk away from. He put together a creative offer that we were comfortable with and helped us strategize and negotiate through rounds of offers and   counter offers. Then - there were title and HOA document issues that Alex helped resolve. Throughout it all, Alex was thoughtful, positive and always ready to listen. We highly recommend Alex! Best realtor experience we have had!
Ben W.
We weren’t planning on purchasing a home in Steamboat yet. Have watched the market for years. We connected with Alex Pond to look at properties on our last trip out - just to see what was out there. Little did we know that Alex would show us something unexpected that kept drawing us back to it. Alex helped us put together an offer we were comfortable with - one we expected to get rejected. Testing the water ... playing the long game... we called it “Pong!” Alex played the game with us - expertly negotiating, always communicating, always thoughtful and calm! We ended with a surprising offer and acceptance - thanks, in large part, to Alex! Then, the fun began... title issues .... We have our new home in SB! Couldn’t have done it without Alex! So professional, knew exactly what to do and how, so calm, and a pleasure to know! He has provided multiple referrals to other service providers, in addition to helping us purchase our home. And - he helped us get the ugly couch out of our new house!!!
Susan W.
He was absolutely GREAT to work with!! He made sure to understand what we were looking for and provided us the ability to look at various properties on short notice. He was prompt in getting back to us with answers to our questions and gave us some excellent suggestions. After we decided on the property and needed to take some measurements, I know he went out of his way to make sure he was available for when we needed to get into the property. I really appreciated all he did and how easy he was to work with. He made the whole process easy, simple, and low stress. Again GREAT to work with!!  I also appreciated the fact that he is a cyclist and gave me some great options for rides around Steamboat - I'll still be hitting him up for more rides, especially gravel.
Sott M.
"We worked with Alex Pond and I couldn’t recommend him more. He was very patient and responsive with us. He frequently checked in on our needs but didn’t feel overly persistent, it definitely felt like he had our best interests in mind. Also, we weren’t exactly big fish - we were looking for a two to three bedroom condo at the lower end of the price range but he gave us the level of service as if we were in the market for a multi-million dollar home. We loved working with him and highly recommend Alex and his team for any real estate needs."

Michael Theiss
We had such a wonderful experience working with Alex Pond and The Steamboat Group. Not only did they take the stress out of the home buying process, they truly made it an enjoyable experience. As we were relocating from Denver to Steamboat, and not able to be available at all times, Alex made sure to keep the process moving, while keeping it simple for us. The group was extremely knowledgeable and were able to answer any and all questions that we had along the way. Thank you to the Steamboat Group for helping us find our forever home!

When you think about what draws you to Steamboat, the authentic down to earth people that have a love for the outdoors and a friendly, welcoming way about them, then you already know Alex Pond and the Steamboat Group. Alex was patient helping us understand the real-estate market in Steamboat as  well as taking the time to translate our “HGTV House Hunters vision” to reality. He successfully steered us through numerous properties gradually fine tuning our vision until we found a townhouse that met our needs (even ones we didn’t even no were needs until Alex showed us what was possible.) Closing on a property is a harrowing experience when you live 1200 miles away, but Alex walked us through the entire process, even standing in for us at inspections etc. when needed. Thanks to Alex and the Steamboat Group we now have our place to enjoy all that Steamboat has to offer, we can’t wait to get started…
Don and Donna Holsten
Worked with Alex Pond over at the Steamboat Group to get two condos in Steamboat. His local knowledge and communication skills really helped me feel confident that what I was getting would work great for my situation. Prompt responses, good solid research of the area for comps, and a thorough closing process. I will be using them again for any future properties in the area.
Drew Edsall
I worked with Alex Pond and couldn't be more impressed with him or The Steamboat Group as a whole. Alex was knowledgeable about every neighborhood we toured and provided wonderful insights. When it came time to make an offer, he did his homework researching the comps and the market conditions- our offer was fair, competitive and backed by data. Alex kept in constant communication through the process and we had a clean transaction that closed in less than 30 days! I strongly recommend him and the entire team at The Steamboat Group! 
Louis Caleca

A big thank you to Alex Pond for working so close with us this Summer and Fall to find our perfect condo at the base of the mountain. His response time was fantastic and listened intently and was fun to work with. He had tremendous patience as we investigated many places and he even reached out to other area agents to see if there were properties 'coming soon'. We're happy to own our new family retreat in beautiful Steamboat!

I worked directly with Alex Pond, a buyer's agent for The Steamboat Group. Alex was professional, responsive, thorough and listened to my needs. When I had a concern, it was addressed in a timely manner with respect and professionalism. I highly recommend the Steamboat Group to anyone and everyone!
 The team was very responsive when I inquired about a lot on Zillow. Alex worked with me to ensure I got what I wanted at a good price and I am very pleased with the result.
Jeremy Rodriguez
Jon Wade and Alex Pond from the Steamboat Group were wonderful to work with. We were able to see properties within 1-2 days of request. All information and data regarding the properties was presented in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend Jon and Alex to friends and family. They were responsive to all questions and returned phone calls and emails the same day. Thanks to them we are living in our new home. The entire process was completed within 6 weeks.
D McCutchan
Working with the Steamboat Group was a very pleasant experience. My Realtor, Alex Pond, went above and beyond to find my first condo that checked all the boxes I was looking for. Alex is a true professional; very knowledgeable of the Steamboat market, always punctual, honest and a great communicator. Everything you want in a competent and effective real estate agent. Without question 5 stars all around to the Steamboat Group experience. I look forward to them again!
