Business briefs: Colorado Group welcomes two new associates

— Peter Guarnero and Katie Weeks have joined the Colorado Group Realty team. They are the newest associates, which includes a group of more than 60 owners and associates.

Guarnero grew up in Pittsburgh, developing a love for all things outdoors, and knew someday he would call Colorado home, according to a news release.

Guarnero graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2001, then moved to Colorado.

He has worked for various state and local government organizations, including the city of Denver and the Colorado Department of Revenue. He moved to Steamboat in 2013 with his wife, Jess, and their son, Julian.

“It’s a privilege to have someone like Peter join our company,” said Martin Dragnev, broker/owner at Colorado Group Realty. “Peter will excel in the real estate market using his expertise in urban areas.”

Weeks has been in the Yampa Valley for more than 20 years and thrives through the enhancement of the community environment, according to the news release. Until recently she was the owner and operator of La Montana Restaurant.

She volunteers as a naturalist for Yampatika and the Yampa Valley Crane Festival and, prior to her careers, she earned a bachelor of science degree in natural resource management from Colorado State University and a GIS certificate from Penn State.

Weeks worked as a wildlife technician for the United States Forest Service and the Colorado Department of Wildlife.

“With Katie’s connection to the community, she is a huge asset to Colorado Group Realty”, said Matt Eidt, broker/owner, “Katie’s experience in the restaurant industry will aid in her success as a broker at Colorado Group.”
