Associate broker Steve Duerr topped all other agents in sales volume last year at Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates, just part of what the firm said was a record year. Duerr’s big 2017 was made by the sale of the Dodge Ranch near Medicine Bow. The 20,502-acre ranch also has 5,554 acres of leased land and is on both sides of 11 miles of the Laramie River. It was listed at $25 million.
Duerr, noting the part played by the Christie’s affiliate and the contributions of its more than 100 agents, called the firm “a tremendous influence for good in the community.” Julie Faupel, one of Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates’ principals, said Duerr’s sale of the Dodge Ranch helped make the firm the top ranch brokerage in the Rocky Mountain West.
Duerr came to Jackson more than 35 years ago as a lawyer, working for Holland and Hart, specializing in tax law. He has served on the Teton County Planning Commission, as director of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce and as director of the Murie Center. During his time at the chamber he led development of its Power of Place campaign, which focused on the value of preserving Wyoming’s natural bounty to protect its lifestyle and businesses.
