Real Estate of Winter Park signs on as a top sponsor of Grand County Blues Society
April 25, 2008
Meet the newest blues group in Grand County.
Real Estate of Winter Park, the dynamic new company that is changing the face of real estate in Winter Park, has signed on as a premiere sponsor of the Grand County Blues Society.
“Partnering with the Blues Society was an easy decision for us,” said Shanna Lalley, one of eight Real Estate of Winter Park owners. “We respect the work that the Blues Society does to enhance Grand County. Like the Blues Society, one of our primary goals is to give back.”
Real Estate of Winter Park was launched in February by a group of top-producing, long-time area brokers from various Winter Park agencies. Each owner/broker has a minimum of eight years experience in the real estate industry. Company owners are: Cliff Anderson, Peter Gach, Shanna Lalley, Jennifer O’Connor, Mike Periolat, Katie Riemenschneider, Lisa Leclair Waldorf and Jean Wolter.
According to Shanna, “We came together to form a different kind of real estate firm. Our team chose to set ourselves up as an independent company – not a franchise – so we can better meet the needs of the local community. We are very excited about our new business, our commitment to the community, and the energy that our office will bring to the area and our long-standing client base.”
As avid outdoor enthusiasts and athletes who enjoy the recreational opportunities in Grand County, the group is committed to preserving the area’s assets by advocating smart growth. A “laundry list” of additional community projects the owners support by volunteering and donating include Middle Park Land Trust, Habitat for Humanity, Grand Youth Experimental Adventures, Mountain Family Center, National Sports Center for the Disabled, Headwater Trails Alliance, Special Olympics and Grand Kids.
Many owners also sit on their respective town, adjustment, planning and homeowners association boards.
As year around sponsors of the Blues Society, Real Estate of Winter Park will help the organization with all of its programs including Blues In The Schools, Blue Star Connection (instruments for cancer patients}, Check Out The Music (Colorado Association of Libraries Partner Program of the Year), and other presentations in all Grand County schools. The company’s support also helps support monthly Blues Society shows and “Blues From The Top,” the annual Blues Festival in Winter Park.
“For Real Estate of Winter Park to make such a generous commitment to our mission has inspired us,” said Blues Society founding member, John Catt. “These people are dedicated to where they live; this gives us a common goal and a song we are going to sing together.”
Blues Society president Cassidi Brickner adds, “As a very hard working board it feels great to continue gaining new financial partners. REWP has really stepped up to the plate and we are excited to have them represent our organization. They give us the ability to continue delivering great entertainment, instruction and programs to this community. We look forward to a long and blues-filled relationship.”
The company is located on U.S. Highway 40 in downtown Winter Park between Pizza Hut and Arapaho Lodge. Stop by or call (970) 726-2600 or (866) 804-2060.
