Char Broten, a real estate broker with Midstate Realty, has a joke she likes to tell whenever anyone asks her when she is going to retire. “When people ask me that I say ‘Well, when you see my obituary in the paper, you can say ‘I guess she retired,’” she said. Broten officially retires on Dec. 31 after 41 years of real estate work in Jamestown. Broten said she has no plans to move to somewhere warm in the winter months, preferring to stay in Jamestown.
