Steamboat Pilot & Today

Colorado Group Realty recently announced a series of changes in the company.

According to a CGR news release, two agents have started as broker associates, and four existing agents have joined the company’s ownership ranks. The new broker associates are Lauren Bloom and Meg Wilson.

According to CGR, Bloom is a Colorado native who has been a Realtor with Redfin and is an elite Colorado Landscape Designer. Along with a background as a landscape designer and horticulturist, Bloom also possesses strong business and negotiating skills.

“The reputation of CGR and its agents are what drew me in, and I’m proud to be able to assist buyers and sellers with the backing of the CGR name,” Bloom said in a news release.

Meanwhile, Wilson has formed a team with Ashley Walcher, one of CGR’s newest owners. Wilson, who owns auto and powersports dealerships, brings extensive knowledge of both commercial and residential real estate.

“I am thrilled to be joining the CGR team; my family and I have never felt more at home than in Steamboat and I love sharing all the amazing things about the valley with my clients,” Wilson said.

Walcher, Will Kennish, Kenny Reisman and Travis Crooke also recently joined 21 others in the CGR ownership group.

Walcher who won the 2021 CGR Hustler of the Year award, has been with the company for five years and closed $19 million in sales volume in 2021.

Kennish, in his second year with CGR, and Reisman, a 12-year veteran with the company, both closed $7 million last year. Crooke was a recent graduate of the company’s new agent training program and was given the 2021 Rising Star award.

“A company is only as good as it’s people,” Scott Wither, a long-time company owner, said in the release. “CGR gets better each year because of our focus on bringing in only highly professional, hard-working, ethical experts.”

In 2021, CGR closed $830 million in sales volume, up 44% from 2020. The company also donated $83,000 to 74 local nonprofits. For more about the company, go to
