Colorado Group introduces transaction team

Colorado Group Realty has added a three-person real estate transaction team to its staff to manage administrative tasks related to the home buying and selling process, ensuring a consistent, efficient and high-quality real estate transaction, according to a news release.

"This is an initiative that came about from the desire to provide an even higher level of service to our clients and our agents. By taking administrative tasks off our agents’ plates, they'll be able to spend more time helping clients on the more strategic and complex aspects of buying or selling a home,” said Steve Goldman, Colorado Group Realty CEO.

The team is led by longtime Steamboat resident and industry veteran Allison Alfone, CGR's director of operations. Newly hired Joee Rain Pavlica and Rachel Elston round out the team, and both have experience with real estate and the mortgage and title industries. The transaction team is tasked with monitoring progress from the time the seller accepts an offer through the close of escrow.

“Most top-producing real estate agents hire their own transaction coordinator,” said Coleman Cook, broker/owner. “Given that we have 65 agents focused in the Yampa Valley, it makes perfect sense to leverage our size by building a team to increase our service level of every CGR transaction."
