In an effort to continue to offer clients the highest level of service and to expand Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty’s presence in Meeker, Colorado, Suzan Pelloni of the SSIR Meeker office has brought John Strate onto her team, joining herself and her assistant Bailey Waldref. 

Born and raised in Meeker, Strate knows and loves small-town living. After earning a degree from Western State College in Social Sciences and starting a teaching career in Canon City, CO, he and his wife chose to return to their hometown to raise their kids. Upon their return to Meeker, Strate became a teacher at Meeker High School, furthering his connections with the local community. 

Strate has served eight years as a trustee for the town of Meeker and is currently the treasurer on the Board of Directors for the Eastern Rio Blanco Metropolitan Recreation District. With his new venture in real estate, Strate will support Pelloni’s team working primarily with buyers as a buyer’s agent. 

“Like myself, John is a Meeker native. He brings a wealth of knowledge to our team to solidify that we are ‘Meeker Experts,’” says Pelloni. “The time and dedication John has invested in our community now can be shared with new buyers exploring Rio Blanco County.” 

Strate loves everything that Meeker and the White River Valley have to offer and loves to share his passion with others. With a love for the outdoors, Strate enjoys hobbies such as trail running, hunting, fishing, skiing, and backpacking, to name a few. 

“Suzan’s achievements in the Meeker real estate market are a testament to her professionalism and the level of service that she delivers to her clients, as well as her status as one of Colorado’s premier brokers and as the Meeker and Rio Blanco County expert,” says Pam Vanatta, Owner/Broker at Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty. “She is an integral part of our company, and expanding our presence in Meeker through the addition of John to her team will only further establish SSIR as the leading real estate brokerage in our area.”
