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. I guess you could say I’ve been around the home industry for some time. 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.
With the knowledge and home building understanding. I feel I have a firm handle on all areas of metro and central Denver. In my 13 year career in home consulting and sales, I have helped people with everything from the first time buyer town home 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 ev-erywhere 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 a business and emotional decision for all involved. I feel that is important to know when to be aggressive and when to be empathetic. Hence why well-rounded service is so important.
"This is the second time I have worked with Ben. He is a true professional, extremely efficient/detail oriented, and knowledgeable about the market. 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."
"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."
