Why real estate? It’s a question Alex gets asked all the time. “It really just comes down to that we love doing, being able to meet awesome people and build great relationships,” he explains. “Real estate combined my love of customer service and business and creativity. You take business and passion and put it together into something you want to do in life, and hopefully that’s your career.” For the last several years, Alex has built his business with passion and done so in an unconventional way. He began Peak Properties, co-founding with Derek Weber, with a team concept in mind from the start, which is a departure from the traditional model of most realtors that grow a team out of necessity. The usual arc sees an enterprising realtor gain success, build a team to accommodate the increase in demand, and function as a realtor’s ad hoc fiefdom. “We think of ourselves more as an agent co-op,” Alex says. “Our agents have their own buy-in, and I don’t make every decision. Our clients dictate the majority of our decisions, and we support our agents in service of those decisions. That’s what we bring to the table.” Success has followed, and one of the most satisfying aspects of this success is that it has earned the Peak Properties Group a good reputation amongst its peers. A reputation is an interesting thing because there always exists the reputation you want and the reputation you have. It’s when those become one and the same that success follows, which it has for Peak and for Alex. Although, that’s not to say it came easy. “Most small businesses fail in the first year,” Alex explains. “Our expectation in the first year of our business was to put our heads down, focus on quality and educate ourselves on everything possible.” And Alex has used this as his model as he’s constantly seeking to educate himself on new and better ways of doing business. This is done in support of his team, and as he supports them, they continue to enhance the Peak Properties reputation.

Alex and the entire team at Peak Properties were phenomenal to work. I both sold and purchased a new home with Alex and the entire process could not have been more smooth. Alex and team sold my home in less than 48 hours, with multiple offers and above asking. They also have an extensive network of movers, roofers and other service providers to help you with your sale or post-purchase. Whether you're local to Colorado or moving in from elsewhere, I would highly recommend Peak Properties Group. They go above and beyond.

I used Alex to assist me with a sale in the Parkhill neighborhood. I had only owned the home for a brief period of time, but Alex was able to market it very well and I realized a large return over my initial purchase price. I also was suffering through some health issues at the time of closing and Alex was able to facilitate completing the closing process from my home which was greatly helpful. I highly recommend him

I'd worked with other agents before, but since meeting Alex he's sold two homes for me and even helped me find the highly elusive decent size affordable home near downtown Denver. I've never met an agent who knew the market so well, was so well connected to all the other people who work in all the various aspects of the industry, and who worked quite as hard. I call Alex first whenever I'm even thinking about buying or selling.

Alex had all the basics down (comps, key features, right target market for the house, etc.) - but so did most of the realtors we talked with. What set Alex apart was his innovative approach to technology and social media. Specifically: - In addition to MLS listings, Trulia, Zillow, etc., Alex set up a unique microsite for our house to really feature it. - Alex used Facebook, Twitter and other social media to promote our house, the open house we had and the listing - Alex took the time to understand the finishes we had put into the house and created "call outs" often with QR Codes placed around the house to give potential buyers additional information about features - He made our open house an "event" that drew the right type of buyers and agents - Alex was quick with feedback from viewing agents (both good and bad) which helped us stay on top of things Overall, Alex had a unique skillset for getting the word out

I had a very unique situation where I was looking and then purchasing a home while away from Denver. I told Alex what I was looking for and he came back with some great properties to look at. Alex's knowledge of the area, exactly where I should (and should not) live was great! I was on a strict timeline on my first visit when we were looking at properties. By the end of the week, not only did I find a home, but an offer had been made and accepted. Alex knowing my situation even made it possible for me to attend the inspection before my flight out. While away for a month, the paperwork and work behind acquiring the property never seemed to stop. It's like I was in Denver the entire time. After closing Alex helped me get my utilities hooked up, and has been very informative on some other questions I've had regarding the property. I couldn't have picked a better Realtor to help me through this process. This is my first home, and he made the whole exp

Alex was fantastic to work with. At our first meeting, he had a whole marketing plan ready to go with our sign off and helped us ensure that the house sold quickly and at the best possible price for us. His advice for staging made a huge difference in the photos (which were very professional and highlighted the best features of our home) as well as the open house (which only took place over a Saturday/Sunday one weekend). When an initial cash offer fell through, he helped us regroup without losing any time and relist to get new offers within 4 days. He was also in constant contact with us throughout the whole process and very good about returning texts/calls/emails immediately. With a big move looming over us, Alex and his team made this process pain-free - we couldn't recommend them more!

I can wholeheartedly recommend The Peak Properties Group to anyone moving to Denver that is looking to buy a house or condo. I was able to get in touch with Peak Properties Group and Alex sent me a link to all the homes and Condos within location and price range I was looking. I flew out from California and Alex picked me up at the airport. We visited five properties. I was only in Denver for six hours but with Alex's help I was able to find exactly what I was looking for. Before leaving for the airport, I put in an offer, and by the time I landed back in California the seller accepted my offer. I closed within 14 days! Alex and The Peak Properties Group helped me during the entire process. Can't thank them enough and would defiantly use them again!

As if making the biggest purchase of your life isn't scary enough, it can be discouraging to find houses that you like and have them be gone the very next day. My fiance and I had very specific things that we wanted in our home. ********** worked tirelessly to find the right home for us. He was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods we were interested in, and had a lot of input for us throughout the process. He worked with us every step of the way, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to help us with such an intimidating process. If you are looking to buy a home, Alex is an amazingly talented and has so much knowledge about all things real estate. He is a supportive and encouraging agent, and you will be in very capable hands if you work with him.
