Jon Wade - Founder/Owner of The Steamboat Group
We are proud to have helped over 578 clients in the past 5 years. We succeed by helping our clients achieve their goals.
We believe in specialization. We want everyone to truly shine where they excel. The Steamboat Group functions as a team, to give our clients the best possible service and results
Every month, our team donates through the TSG Fund to local nonprofits. We focus on charities we volunteer in that help keep Steamboat special.
Environment is a big factor in motivation. So we hire very carefully people that will contribute to our culture, team players and that will value taking care of our clients first. Our office is on beautiful Yampa Street downtown. Take early morning bike rides on Howelsen Hill, fly fish the Yampa, run up Spring Creek Trail or cross country ski -all less than 3 blocks from the office. In addition to a great location, our workspace is set-up to foster collaboration and an interactive team culture.
- 3,400 sq. ft bright and open-concept space with modern furniture, technology and views to Howelsen (not to mention - we are above Mountain Tap Brewery!)
- Private meeting spaces, large training area
- Individual desks and personal work space
- Spacious kitchen and amenities
- Healthy resource library (online and off)
- Upbeat & family-like team culture fosters a fun and positive work environment
- Work hard and play hard with the amazing downtown location giving you easy access to everything Steamboat has to offer!
The best way to deliver an excellent experience for our clients is to develop the best brokers in town.
We believe in being very selective in who we hire so we can make big investments to help each of our brokers be successful instead of the sink or swim environment that is prevalent in real estate.
If you join the Steamboat Group you will be on an accelerated and highly probable path to success. We work with you to learn strategies on how to win new clients, how to coach them through the process, learning &understanding contracts, successful negotiation skills, and everything you need to be successful other than your own drive for serving clients, excellence, and success.
It doesn't end there. We are the only firm that acts as a team. Our other agents, management team and Jon Wade are always there to help you make a breakthrough in your skills or what it takes to get through a challenging deal.
• Weekly Sales Meetings & Coaching
• Training (agent onboarding and ongoing sales training)

• Annual Team Advance and Business Planning
• Robust Training Platform
We create a marketing experience for your clients (making you look good!) We believe that no two properties are the same, each with a unique story. Our job is to tell this story and make your clients fall in love. We want them to get swept off their feet...by their own listing. Why? Because then buyers will do the same.
A unique sales and marketing strategy is designed for every property. We consider the perspective of the buyer for your client’s listing and help them see how it is a match for their lives and goals.
• Buyer Guide
• Seller Guide and Listing Presentation
• Unmatched digital presence starting with a web presence that finds more clients first and then helps you proactively match them with the right property.
• Custom Designed Property Brochures, Online Ads, Videos, and targeted marketing.
• Prospecting Materials, Signage (For Sale, Directional, Open House & Flags), Business Cards, Presentation Folders, Note Cards & Other Print Materials & More
We have worked hard for the past 16 years to setup an unparalleled online presence. We are ranked higher in more places to be where buyers and sellers are looking for homes and information on selling their homes. We have developed a system to help qualify buyers and sellers and get you the hottest leads when they are ready to move forward with purchasing and selling real estate.
Our team has sophisticated online marketing and social media tools to target, track and convert buyers. For every listing we determine the demographic profile of the potential buyer and run online campaigns that target them.
We hyper focus our ads to run campaigns that are put in front of prospective buyers multiple times and across many partner websites and search engines.
We use the industry’s best systems to host a campaign strategy that include targeted and segmented email blasts, retargeting campaigns, just listed, and open house postings.
When it comes to software and technology for both our team and our clients, the homework has been done. Because let’s face it, the real estate industry is saturated with “shiny objects”. Simply put, we’ve vetted out and use only the best tools at no additional cost to our agents. We don’t settle for big company tools that add little value we want to make sure that you can have a steady stream of new clients, facilitate deals quickly, communicate in real-time and have your transactions managed flawlessly.
Everything we implement is intuitive, ahead-of-the-curve and most of all, easy-to-use.
We empower our agents by providing the support of a strong operations team that provides much more help per agent so that you can focus on what you do best: serving your clients, selling real estate and enjoying life in Steamboat! Let us take care of the rest. The Steamboat Group Operations Team is responsible for ensuring that you and your client’s transaction is as seamless (and stress-free!) as possible. From start to finish, they will help you focus on your strengths freeing you up to help more clients and to still see your family and spend time doing what brought you here.
Our team includes full-time Transaction Manager, Listing Manager, Marketing Specialists and Management staff that facilitate a robust technology-based platform customized to deliver a great broker and client experience. Both you, and your clients, will be apprised each step of the way.
One of the reasons we founded The Steamboat Group was that we feel lucky to live here and it is our mission to help keep Steamboat Special. For us this is a central component to who we are as a team so we give back in partnership with our team to the tune of $90,000 in 2020 and we are already on pace to pass that in 2021.
Our vision at The Steamboat Group is simple:
We are built differently from the ground up to succeed by truly serving our clients on a different level and deliver excellent results for them. We know that we can each live our Steamboat dreams which includes a great professional career in Steamboat.
We are committed to always pushing ourselves to improve and measure our success by the success we enable for our clients , team, and generosity to our favorite town.
At The Steamboat Group, we collaborate to help everyone succeed. We celebrate each other’s wins and help pull each other up instead of competing with each other for individual and often lonely success. Our leadership team works alongside our brokers to support them in establishing and surpassing their goals.
Want to build a career with an income suitable for your lifestyle in an amazing location? You've found the right place.
The foundation of The Steamboat Group’s platform is mentorship, technology, marketing and lead generation. Combining this, with a close-knit team culture built on integrity and strong core values, we consistently develop successful brokers measured in more than just sales. That said our sales per broker is 2 times or more any other top 5 firm.
Do you want to be part of a team that not only does well but truly helps Keep Steamboat Special?
A part of our culture code is relationships over transactions. And we firmly believe in this. But, don't take our word for it. Here are a few testimonials from recent clients.
Best team in the business. True local experts, professional and knowledgeable, and great communication. If you want the inside track to Steamboat Springs area real estate, you need to call Jon and his team. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
Allison Montgomery was our realtor. She was incredibly flexible and generous with her time as we were searching for houses. When we entered into a contract, Allison knew we wanted to close in 30 days, which is hard to do during a pandemic.
She made sure to frequently call all the parties involved to make sure things were moving as quickly as possible. We had so many questions and she provided us all the answers we needed. We would highly recommend her to others buying in the Steamboat area!
Thank you Jon Wade! 5 stars, A++ , 110/10 - I cannot say enough great things about Jon & his team. The unparalleled communication from beginning to end, personalized customer service and expertise in the market are unmatched in the area and in the industry. They sold my home quickly and better than indicated price.
It is a Rare find to work with professionals who under promise and over deliver. That’s what they did , and I consider them my agent for life. Call Jon for peace of mind and financial success in your home buying and selling goals!
Jon showed us many houses over the past three years. He spent untold hours with us but he was always more interested in what’s right for us rather than just making a sale. He knows Steamboat like the back of his hand and was able to give us great guidance even before we looked at a house.
All of his staff that we worked with was equally focused on what was right for us. Perhaps the greatest indicator of his professionalism and focus on us is that after all that time, we elected to buy a lot. His energy, time spent, and advice never waned. You can’t do better than Jon and the folks that work with him.
Okay, so you've made it this far? Are you interested in joining The Steamboat Group for a fast-paced career, built around serving our community and living the amazing lifestyle you love?
