About Benjamin Ellefson

About Me:

Having a passion for this industry and for its work is why I have been involved in home building and home sales since 2000. My father was a developer in Colorado in the early 80s. My first taste on my own was in the new home industry in early 2000 with a national builder in Denver. After almost eight years and many high achievement awards for sales and customer service, I wanted to find a way that gave more personally and professionally to my clients. I feel I have a firm handle on all areas of metro and central Denver—very much like a "kung-fu grip" on real estate. In my 19-year career in home consulting and sales, I have helped people with everything from the first-time-buyer townhome to multi-million-dollar estates. I really love Colorado and all it has to offer. I’m now living in the Denver Highlands and loving the urban lifestyle. I was born in Wheatridge, and have lived from Aurora to Fort Collins and just about everywhere in between. It has given me the knowledge of the more mature and new areas in Colorado. I am an avid Colorado outdoors person. Skiing in the wintertime and mountain biking in the summer keeps me fit and in tune with the active Colorado lifestyle. Many people that are moving to Colorado or that live here now want to be near areas so that they can enjoy what Colorado offers. That is where I can help you in finding the next house you want to make a home.

My Real Estate Philosophy:

Buying and selling homes with clients is really a rare blend that encompasses business and emotional decision for all involved. I feel that is important to know when to be aggressive and when to be empathetic. This is why well-rounded service is so important.

Key advice:

None of us are as smart as all of us working together for the common goal.

My Approach:

Honesty, Tenacity, Passion, Fun. These words define me as a person as well as how I treat my Real Estate business. I see real estate as service first with a blend of sales and negotiating that is essential for making sure my clients get what they are after, whether buying a home or selling one.

It was a very stressful process to sell and buy in this particular market but we trusted Ben and his process and was able to get the perfect house for myself and my son. We absolutely love our new home and would highly recommend Ben."

  • "Ben Ellefson did an outstanding job of keeping the transaction on track, and even inquired if the closing could be done sooner, which I didn't know was possible. He explained everything courteously, especially to the buyer, who was a newcomer to real estate. The lender was also impressed with his professionalism and timely communications. Thanks, Ben, and Porchlight for a great experience!"

  • "We worked with Ben Ellefson, and he did an amazing job. You can tell Ben has tons of experience in real estate from many different angles, and is incredibly knowledgeable across the board. He was also very patient with us through a very long process with some complications and helped us end up in a great home at a great price."

  • "My partner Lynne and I have been friends with Ben Ellefson for about a year prior to starting our home search. In all honesty, we were looking at a few realtors and ultimately decided to go with Ben. From the start we just knew that he 'got' us, understood what we were looking for, and would help us learn along the way. Besides doing ALL of that, Ben was absolutely spectacular to work with. Ben not only worked us through the process, but he also encouraged us when we felt like we wouldn't find the right fit, calmed us when we were anxious, and finally, celebrated with us when we found 'the one.' We couldn't be more thankful for the guidance Ben provided, but also for his true knowledge of the market. His intuition and know-how and invaluable -- especially with first-time buyers! His energy never let up, he was accessible at all times and his team never had us worried about a deadline at any point in the process. It is clear that Ben truly cares about his clients and their experience and is passionate about the work he does. We really can't say enough about how Ben and his team worked with us through this process we were told would be 'a nightmare'. Thank you Ben and the PorchLight team for making our home experience a pleasurable one."

  • "We were looking for our first home to buy and were referred to Ben Ellefson by a friend. This was the best decision we made because Ben was there for us every step of the way.

    Ashley Koop
    Buyer

  • "We cannot thank Ben Ellefson enough for all of his hard work! As first time homebuyers, we weren't quite sure what we were getting into and had many questions.

  • "Ben Ellefson is a top notch realtor that help me find my dream home. Due to his extreme level of professionalism, knowledge and super quick action I was able to secure a home that had a lot of competing offers. He is phenomenally attentive, down to earth, kind and an absolute go getter. I am certain that I could not have found my dream home without his help and willingness to make viewings on last minute notices. He took the time to answer all of my questions and explained the whole home buying process to me in a manner which empowered me with the knowledge I needed to make well informed decisions. Thank you so much for your time, energy and all that you did for me during this home hunting/buying process!!"
