Young homebuyers in the Denver Metro area have a new favorite real estate agent - one who’s dead set on helping new buyers build their empire from the ground up, without sacrificing any prior properties. In short, she’s a saving grace for families and young professionals who aren’t sure where to start.
Introducing Lori Abbey, owner of The Abbey Collection, a tight-knit real estate team that thrives off of honest advice and family values. As one of the top 10 realtors in Denver out of over 22,000, Lori has made a clear name for herself over the past five years of business - and she did it alongside her mother, daughter, two nephews, and her daughter’s best friend.
In fact, her daughter’s friend has worked at the firm for the past seven years since she was 18 years old. Otherwise known as Lori’s “second daughter,” she’s been a part of the family since she was in kindergarten and is now a key part of the business as a whole - a testament to the team’s familial nature.
When asked why her team is so different from the rest, Lori pointed to their family ties and collaborative environment: “Real estate is a stressful gig - but when you do it with people you value and care about, that connection serves to minimize the stress.” She also emphasized that real estate can be a lonely occupation, but with a team that’s like family, that loneliness can be quelled.
Lori launched The Abbey Collection just five years ago after a few years as a buyer’s agent, and a few more out on her own. She currently works the foothill territory, working with beautiful mountain town ranch properties, but retains her Denver Metro territory to stay true to her roots.
Perhaps what’s most applaudable about The Abbey Collection is their team’s honest take on home buying, selling, and guidance for young buyers. If a sale isn’t what’s best for the client, Lori will let them know. If it’s not the right time to buy, even if it makes her money, she’ll be upfront about it. No work by The Abbey Collection is for a mere paycheck. It’s centered around the client, their goals, where they want to go and how they can go about it.
According to Lori, she’s “in it for the long-term relationships, to help people and families build wealth. Not to simply make a sale.” She’s particularly skilled in coaching younger buyers on hunting down their second, third, or fourth residences without selling the prior properties, or as she puts it, “helping them build an empire.”
Lori and her team help young individuals and couples build their real estate resumes because they know it’s the fastest route to wealth. With nearly 90% of all millionaires estimated to have a hand in real estate, it’s tough to refute. Lori explains how young buyers can approach this: “It’s the fastest way that you’ll ever build wealth at a young age. Use the money in equity to move up properties, and then maintain a rental and start building your empire.”
