— In 2000, Land Title Guarantee Co. opened its Steamboat Springs branch. In the years since, branch manager Stan Urban says, the office has gone from zero percent of the market share to 42 percent.

“We really understand our market,” Urban says about the seven employees who staff the Steamboat office of the Colorado-based company.

Urban says the level of service offered along with title insurance and escrow services is what sets Land Title apart in Steamboat. “A lot of people use us exclusively,” he says about the company’s loyal client base. “We really try to be a third party to make sure everything is done properly.”

More than just doing things properly, Land Title has made an effort to be active beyond the office. “I think it’s how we interact with the community,” Urban says about rising to the top of this year’s voting.

Examples include the Penguin Plunge, Tread of Pioneers Museum and Steamboat Springs Ski Town Lions Club in addition to other charitable endeavors as ways employees have become involved in the community. “We love being here. It’s a great community,” Urban says. “It has a hometown feel. I really appreciate that.”
