Client Benefits for Buyers

Douglas N. Labor – Doug’s clients appreciate his 30 + years of real estate knowledge and experience working for them, as well as the professional work ethic and personal care he delivers to each and every client. In an industry filled with personnel from a variety of backgrounds, it is rare to find a real estate broker who established their career as far back as 1983, and that includes executive level disciplines in sales, marketing, construction and resort/project planning and development, and Doug provides that knowledge to his buying clients.


From 2000 to 2014 Doug was the Broker/Owner of Buyer’s Resource Real Estate of Steamboat, where he and his company dedicated their efforts to working only for buyers. For 15 years he was the only broker in Steamboat Springs who focused his practice on serving the needs of Steamboat’s buyers. Throughout that time he developed systems, concepts and services specifically to help buyers identify the best property that meets their needs, effectively assist them in negotiating a price and terms favorable to them, assist during the due diligence and closing periods, all while providing expert guidance during the entire process. The extremely high level of service and care remains today with the merger of his office with Sotheby’s of Steamboat.


Doug’s Office – Doug’s office, located in the heart of downtown, is specifically designed to help clients buy Routt County property.  It is known as "The Showroom" for Steamboat Springs area real estate. The 2,200 square foot "Showroom" is specifically designed for buyers with interactive displays, high-tech galleries to search for properties online, and a resource library filled with valuable statistics, market newsletters and listings.
