Alexa Elliot started out working with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Dept. She was in her mid-twenties at the time, but after the excitement of buying her first home, she decided to make the switch to real estate. “Helping people has always been important to me, and I wanted to share the experience with others, so I moved to Denver, Colorado, and got my license.” That was 25 years ago.
Since then, Alexa has helped over 1500 families achieve home ownership and sold over a half a billion in sales. She is currently working with American Home Agents, covering the Denver Metro area. Alexa reports closing 104 transactions this year. “I love to do most of the work myself as it helps me build relationships, get to know my clients plus I am very detail oriented,” she says. “This allows me to control the transaction to the benefit of my client, but I will bring in a transaction coordinator to help me with paperwork.”
Alexa has built her business on repeat and referral clientele and building relationships with lenders and other professionals. “I love helping family, friends, and past clients find or upgrade to their new homes,” she states. “I treat them like family and believe in being their ‘Realtor for life,’ no matter what their needs.”
The type of caring and kindness she offers many of her clients comes in the form of charitable donations. “I set aside 10% of my commission to help single moms or first-time home buyers complete their dream of owning a home,” she says. “Many Buyers have great jobs and good credit, but they just need help with a down payment or closing costs. That’s where I’ll pitch in.” She also sets aside 5% to place dogs who need homes through a company called Pet Madness. In addition, American Home Agents, with spokesperson Peyton Manning, gave $100,000 to the food bank during the Covid crises.
Alexa believes in reaching out to her clients using a touch system. “I try to touch base at least twice a month, whether it be with mailers, special occasion cards, and of course, phone calls, emails and texts,” she asserts.
With more than 20 years of experience in all aspects of Real Estate, she has developed and trained in franchise systems related to the real estate industry on a national and state level. Alexa also specializes in real estate investing. She has helped numerous clients buy investment properties creating a retirement asset, residual monthly cash flow and assisted in the management of those properties. “Since I’m practically a native of Colorado, I am well versed in all areas and aspects of the local market and trends throughout,” she says. “But most importantly, I believe in honesty, integrity, hard work and building relationships.”
She loves what she does because of the joy she brings to families. “Seeing the smiles on their faces when they’re handed the keys to their new homes, is the best,” she says. “It’s always been my mission to help people attain their goals and dreams of home ownership.”
When she’s not working, Alexa tends to her small hobby farm in Castle Rock. she loves her animals, saying, “It’s so beautiful and relaxing there,” she says.
As for her plans for the future, Alexa says, “I’ll keep working until I can no longer walk,” she laughs, “My goal is to continue to stay in the top 10 of all agents in Colorado. I also plan to add a few exceptional agents, who use the best tools and technology available to give our clients the highest returns in their home sale and incredible deals for our buyers and investors”.
