“I like being able to help families find a home and answer the question, ‘Not where are we going to be in the next six months… but where are we going to be for the next few years.’” says Alec Short about why he chose real estate as a career.
Alec grew up in in a small town in Montana called Red Lodge where, Alec jokes, “I couldn’t do anything bad as a kid without my mom already knowing about it before I got home.” And while he misses having Yellowstone National Park in his backyard, Alec’s knack for picking up languages drove him to study abroad during college and has kept him traveling ever since.
He taught himself Spanish as a child, and although he’s lost much of the Spanish he used to speak so easily, he hasn’t lost his language aptitude and currently can speak Russian, Arabic, and a bit of German conversationally. “Getting to know other cultures is incredibly important to me.”
Combining his love of the natural beauty of his upbringing with the cultural opportunities of the city has landed Alec in Denver, and brought him to Stratera Partners. “It’s an incredibly supportive environment,” Alec says. That type of environment not only benefits the agents of Stratera Partners, but translates to the buyers and sellers who enlist Alec to guide them through one of the most important transactions any of us will ever undertake.
“It’s a special moment, and I want to be a part of it,” Alec says of buying a home. “So whatever is keeping you up at night about the home-buying process, you can call or text me at any hour to get those stresses off your mind.”
