    Equity Managing Broker Awarded

    Equity Colorado Real Estate - Foothills managing broker, Steve Harder was recently selected as the recipient for the 2018 SMDRA Rising Star Award!

    From Steve's Facebook post:

    I want to personally thank the SMDRA Board and Executive Leadership for the trust and confidence you have placed in me to represent the Realtor community as we pursue the goal of making home ownership much more attainable for many across the state of Colorado. I would like to give additional recognition to Todd Schuster for providing the opportunity to serve, Nick Bokone for his patience and guidance in the world of politics, to the South Metro Denver Realtor Association for their vision and to The Colorado Association of Realtors for their much needed and appreciated support and resources as we move forward. Tonight, many in attendance shared with me their appreciation of my efforts, which I am thankful for. However, this evening, the award and our efforts will ring hollow until the First Time Homebuyers Savings program becomes a reality. If you are interested in learning more please reach out to me. As the day ends I am grateful that we set aside time to recognize fellow Realtors for their contributions to and support of the Realtor brand and what it stands for. When we wake tomorrow let’s take a few minutes to consider how blessed and fortunate we are as Realtors to have the privilege of serving others in the pursuit of their dreams. Have a wonder filled day!
