Krumrie played for the Cincinnati Bengals.

He also has coached football in Steamboat.

New associate joins Colorado Group Realty

Kara Mann has joined the Colorado Group Realty team. She is the newest associate, which includes a group of more than 60 owners and associates.

Mann has spent years in the business industry handling marketing, training and communications for a quick, casual restaurant company. Later in her career, she utilized her online social marketing knowledge to assist book publishers with their needs.

Mann is a graduate of CU Boulder with a degree in psychology and business. The mountains were calling her from a young age, as she used to spend a lot of time with her family in the mountains growing up. Life brought her, her husband and their two children to Steamboat.

“We feel so fortunate to call Steamboat home and plan to do so forever,” Mann said.

“We are excited to have Kara join Colorado Group Realty.
