Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce Dana Smith has joined the firm as a Broker Associate, working in our Downtown office at 56 9th Street.

Born & raised in Denver, Dana is a true Colorado Local. After graduating from Cherry Creek High School, Dana went on to the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science from the School of Journalism (with an emphasis in marketing & advertising) and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. After college, Dana’s heart was set on moving to Vail for what she thought would be several months to enjoy a season of snowboarding.

As the old saying goes, “you come for a winter, stay for a summer, then never leave,” Dana ended up staying and spending the next 19 years in Vail working in the restaurant/hospitality scene. This got her involved in The Court of Master Sommeliers, where she earned her Sommelier Certification in April 2012. The world of wine became what Dana thought would be a long-term career until she and her husband traded the I-70 corridor and moved to Steamboat Springs in 2021.

“We’re very excited to have Dana part of the Steamboat Sotheby’s real estate family,” says Doug Labor, Broker and General Manager for the Downtown Steamboat SIR office. “Her father was a successful commercial real estate broker in the Denver area, and I’ve been impressed with her innate knowledge of the business, her work ethic, and likeable demeanor. Her eagerness to learn more about the industry will serve her clients well.”

Growing up with parents in the real estate industry, Dana decided to follow suit and became a real estate agent in the Yampa Valley. If you are looking to find the perfect balance of work and play in the Steamboat area, Dana will be dedicated to making that a reality for you. And if you want to chat about wine, you can find Dana occasionally working the floor at The Primrose Restaurant as their sommelier, AKA “The Wine Maven.”
