Kudos for Jenkins
Live Water Properties, a specialist in ranch properties that operates in nine states, honored Jackson’s Latham Jenkins at its recent national conference. Jenkins was the company’s second-highest-producing broker in 2018, behind Tim Hilley, of Missoula, Montana. Jenkins, founder of media company Circ Design, became head of Live Water’s new residential branch, Live Water Jackson Hole, in 2017. “Latham began as Live Water Properties’ first exclusive Jackson Hole residential broker, and in his first full year he transacted over 10 deals,” Live Water owner and CFP Macye Maher said in a press release.
Vertical Harvest has put the word out that you can buy some of its produce at Albertsons. “You can find our tasty microgreens between the lettuce and mushrooms on the right side of the produce section,” Nona Yehia, co-founder and CEO, said in an announcement. “As many of you know, creating a relationship with Albertsons has been a goal of ours — a huge and exciting prospect for our farm.”

Spark changes name
Mark your calendar for May 9, when Silicon Couloir will celebrate the rebranding of Spark as The Cowork Space. Silicon Couloir bought Spark last year. Owning an affordable cowork space where entrepreneurs can network is a perfect complement to its programs and services for startups, the organization said. The signage will change early this month, and the Spark website will be integrated into an improved Silicon Couloir website, with features such as online signup, membership payment and conference room reservations. The conference room has been upgraded as well. You can see for yourself at the celebration, which will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. The coworking space is at 140 E. Broadway, upstairs in Suite 25.
Burba makes top list
Eric Burba, senior vice president of mortgage lending at Guaranteed Rate in Jackson, ranked No .183 out of 300 people on Mortgage Lending News’ 2019 Top Producers list. “This year marks the 21st anniversary of the Top Producers program,” Mortgage Lending News said on its website. “The rankings are open to mortgage loan officers and mortgage brokers who work at depository, nonbank and mortgage brokering firms in the United States.” The rankings were compiled based on 2018 loan production information submitted by loan officers. For Burba that was 101 loans of nearly $46 million total. “Loan officers who submitted data for the survey represent the entire spectrum of the origination business, from banks and credit unions to mortgage bankers and mortgage brokerages, and their titles range from loan officer all the way to company president.”
