(Featured Left to Right: Jack Sanders and Alex Knight)
Our relationship with our members is of the utmost importance to us here at Shift. Each month, we ask one of our cherished members to tell us a little bit more about themselves and their company. This month, we sat down with the team at RealView Real Estate to learn more about the real estate industry, their team, and their company.
Tell us about the work you do at RealView Real Estate and introduce the team?
At RealView Real Estate, the majority of our time is spent brokering private client multifamily buildings. In addition, we also raise equity and prospect potential acquisitions for developers and investors in the apartment and industrial sectors. Jack and Alex teamed up in 2021 to start this new venture. Jack had previously worked in different real estate roles while Alex’s background was in equity research and trading. On the brokerage side Jack focuses on Denver County properties while Alex focuses on Adams, Arapahoe, and Jefferson Counties.
What is your favorite part about working in real estate?
In Jack’s opinion, the best part about real estate is working with all the different types of colorful characters. And Alex loves the work/life balance relative to finance and not being chained to a desk all day.
What has been the number one key to your company’s success throughout the past year?
Jack worked a few months alone prior to Alex joining the partnership. He feels very fortunate to be able to work with and spend the majority of his time with one of his best friends. In Jack’s own words, “Don’t tell him I said this, but when it comes to business he is also very smart, determined, and loyal. In my opinion the biggest reason why our partnership works is that our different personalities connect with different types of clients.” Alex goes on to say, “Jack’s experience and knowledge of the market were crucial in the early stages as I was transitioning to a completely different industry. A big thing for us is to celebrate the small wins but not lose sight of our long term goals.”
What drew you to Shift to be the home base for your company here in Denver?
We toured multiple coworking spaces prior to deciding on Shift Corona. The biggest draw for us was the great location, flexible agreements for growing companies, and the fantastic staff that always goes above and beyond. Also, the melting pot of different companies and people that make this place so special.
What do you enjoy doing with your time when you are not working?
Jack enjoys spending time with friends and family, usually skiing, listening to live music, and watching CU Boulder and Northern California sports teams. Alex enjoys golfing as much as he can, hanging out with friends, and the occasional modeling gig.
