Springs broker gets red-carpet treatment
Not everybody gets their names splashed across a national newspaper, but Colorado Springs commercial broker Doug Carter got the star treatment this week. Well, sort of. Carter, who last year joined national brokerage Sperry Van Ness Commercial Real Estate Advisors, was one of 68 brokers -- the company prefers to call them "advisors" -- to get their mugs included in a full-page Wall Street Journal ad Wednesday (page B9). The ad honored some of the company's more than 800 brokers from around the country who were top earners in 2006. Carter, who specializes in apartment properties, was one of two Colorado brokers in the ad.
