We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexis Shoop and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alexis, how do you think about risk?
I think risk is extremely valuable in building a business. The whole concept starts from a brilliant idea, but you need to be able to sit in the uncomfortable for quite a bit of time before success happens. Risk is not for the faint of heart. For me, I am always searching for the next risk. The next best thing I can learn and grow from. In order to be the best, you need to be constantly growing and surrounding yourself with those around you who take risks as well. I would not be where I am today without taking the leap of faith.
What should our readers know about your business?
I LOVE WHAT I DO! I get to do the best job on the planet (Total bias). Everyday I get to help my friends/family with one of the most important moments in their life. Yes, I get to see pretty houses and negotiate high level deals. But, the passion is in the people. I try to make the home buying and selling process as calm and fun as possible. In this day and age, we are more competitive in our housing market than we ever have been. It can be challenging and emotions are high. But I strive to provide a level of service that makes every client feel special, and focus less on the pressures that come with. I will hold my clients hands when things are tough, and I will also be the tough negotiator they need in their corner. Building a Real Estate business comes with its challenges. You really need to find your groove before you get going. You need to find what works for you and do it well. I made sure I was always the connector of people. Whether that be in real estate or restaurants or hair salons. Trust is something that is earned, and I made sure that my friends/family could count on me through it all. If you stay consistent and you immerse yourself in the industry, success will come. And the rewards of all the smiling faces are all worth it. Did I mention I LOVE WHAT I DO!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Great Question! I am all about being a foodie and checking out the next best places. Denver has a lot to offer in the food and entertainment industries. I would say summer is the best time to check most things out in Denver because there’s usually always something going on whether that be a mac n cheese festival or sidewalk chalk festival. I always look up the events going on around town and check one of those out. Worth it! Some of my favorite places to go outside of that are Barcelona for some tapas and crafts, Cru wine bar for a wine flight and goat cheese beignet. Milk market for a happy hour lemon cocktail and a walk around the hotel. Hop a few breweries in RINO. Enjoy a nice italian dinner at Jovanina Italian, and a post drink martini at the oxford hotel martini bar. If youre feeling like music, the nocturne jazz bar is a great hidden gem. In the summer, I love to grab a hot dog and catch a baseball game with the cheap tickets. The options are endless and Denver is great because you can go from casual and fancy in whole day!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my success to my family. There’s not a lot of people who can say they grew up with a whole slew of powerhouse business owners and high level career oriented beings. We were brought up knowing we could be the best if we worked hard and created our own destiny. We were never shown ceilings and never shown failure would hold us back. I am extremely grateful for my family and all they have instilled in me.
