About The Steamboat Group

Jon and his wife Wendy followed their dream and moved to Steamboat in 2005 to raise their kids. Jon began his career in Real Estate and loves being a part of a business where he can help people achieve their dream of living the Steamboat lifestyle.

After 10 years as a partner in another local firm, Jon and Wendy formed The Steamboat Group to achieve their vision of serving their clients and community at a higher level. "We are a family-owned and community-focused real estate firm. Our mission is simple; to provide superior real estate services and help keep Steamboat special along the way." They hire very selectively for people that will put their clients first, are committed to higher standards in their work, and are willing to give back to Steamboat on a high level.

Their team model allows them to invest significantly more in training, marketing, and customer service to get the best results for each client. The whole team helps keep Steamboat special by making donations to The Steamboat Group Fund. The fund is held with The Yampa Valley Community Foundation, which is then allocated to non-profits and community programs they are active in. Team members also volunteer with various organizations and at numerous events throughout the year and serve on different nonprofit boards throughout the community.

They have developed an invaluable network of people around town that helps them know the inside story, look out for your interests and see opportunities sooner. If you are looking for local knowledge, great service, and unparalleled expertise, give The Steamboat Group a call.
