“My clients aren’t just clients. They’re friends. I suppose a lot of realtors focus on the transaction, but the real thrill for me comes once a family moves into their new home and transforms it into a reflection of who they are. I never get tired of it.”
From a very young age, Alyssa was taught to love and respect houses and how they symbolize family. During her childhood, weekends often meant open house sojourns, and even family vacations often centered on famous architectural destinations. It’s no wonder Alyssa was determined to have a career that honored her love of the family home.
Armed with a degree in interior design from Kirkwood College, Alyssa took a position in retail management with McGregor’s Furniture. She honed her skills first in sales and worked her way up to accessory buying and merchandising for an entire chain of stores. Although she loved feathering clients’ nests with her keen eye for aesthetics, Alyssa still yearned for something more. Real estate was the next natural step.
She kicked off her career with EXIT Realty in 2014 and joined RE/MAX Partners in September of 2017. Driven by a passion for her clients and a laser focus on representation before profit, Alyssa couldn’t be happier with her role within the organization today.
“I’ve never had a career support system like I do now,” Alyssa says. “There’s real investment. Not just monetarily, but personally. We step up for one another and fill in the gaps when they arise. It’s wonderful to be able to say that about the people I work with and for.”
Alyssa’s commitment to people doesn’t just stop when her work day ends. If she’s not representing clients or tending to her own family (husband Luke and three children), Alyssa is contributing to her community. She’s a member of both the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and Brooklyn Economic Development as well as a Poweshiek Leadership Program (PLP) graduate and facilitator. Additionally, she’s a member of the Mid-Iowa Regional Board of Realtors (MIRBOR) education and special events committees, which provides resources and professional development for real estate professionals.
If your family is looking for a place to call home, Alyssa will provide you with all of the innovative tools you need to build that dream. Call her at 319-521-7016.
