TOP REAL ESTATE AGENT IN CANADA AKASH MEHTA
Born and raised in Edmonton, Akash Mehta has always possessed an entrepreneurial spirit. While majoring in Finance at Concordia University of Edmonton, he accepted a position with a local bank, where he honed his customer service and transaction management skills. Seeking an opportunity that better spoke to his sharp business acumen and passion for helping others, he decided to switch tracks and delve into real estate and investment properties. In the years since, he has found rapid success in his hometown, learning from some of the leading agents in the area. But most recently, he has taken his work to the next level and launched his own team.
Today, Akash is a REALTOR® with the Nexxus Group at MaxWell Polaris, where he leads an elite team to assist clients throughout Edmonton and the surrounding areas. There, he has cultivated a truly unique workflow around the core values of openness, integrity, and expertise, living up to his time tested motto: “It’s more than just a transaction”
When listing a property, Akash equips his clients with a diversified strategy. Starting out, he helps them prepare their home for the market, providing a suite of professional photography and staging services. From there, he partners with a cutting edge marketing firm to share his listings via a blend of highly targeted digital and social media campaigns. He also makes sure to include his clients throughout, offering a variety of different marketing packages that cater directly to their needs.
But Akash is just as attentive when assisting his buyers, leaning on his acute knowledge of the Edmonton area to uncover the right home for their best interests. Moreover, he keeps in touch long after the closing through regular check-ins, pop bys, and even care packages during the Covid pandemic. “To me, this business comes down to being genuine with your clients,” he says. “That means looking after them and empathizing with them. After all, we’re in it for more than a paycheck; we want to see our buyers and sellers succeed.”
Over the years, Akash has earned a fantastic reputation throughout Alberta, as evidenced by his strong rate of repeat clients and referrals. He remains focused on the boutique approach that continues to set him apart. “My clients always get a five-star experience. When we secure someone’s trust, our job is to do whatever it takes to help them reach their goal, giving them a comprehensive experience.”
Raised in a family of entrepreneurs, Akash is committed to supporting the small businesses within his community, having partnered with a media team to provide local retailers and restaurateurs with complimentary promotional services. When he’s not with clients or giving back, he enjoys playing hockey, hitting the gym, spending quality time with his friends and family, or relaxing at home with his dog.
Going forward, Akash has exciting plans for the future. He intends on scaling his team, expanding his outreach within the community, and growing his proven brand within the Edmonton region. “In this business, no two days are the same,” he says. “Above all, though, there’s nothing more rewarding than helping people make one of life’s toughest decisions and earning their trust along the way.”
