Access Real Estate takes on new agent

EAGLE — Last month, Doug Seabury and Scott Schlosser, owners of Access Real Estate of Colorado, hired one of Seabury’s former clients, Janet Powers. After recently completing a rebranding project, the real estate agency was eager to recruit fresh, new talent. Seabury immediately recognized Powers’ professional, ethical and self-motivated demeanor.

Powers completed her real estate training in early August and has been approved by the Vail Board of Realtors.

“We actually used Doug as our agent to buy a home in Eagle County,” Powers said. “He didn’t know at the time that I was assessing his techniques to see how he functioned as a broker. He made us feel so comfortable, and I loved his laid back but professional attitude. There was no pressure. He made it easy. It was exactly the kind of experience I want to bring to my future clients.”

Powers grew up in the Colorado mountains. After moving to Denver and starting a family, Powers followed her passion for interior design and sales, and worked for Beazer Homes as a design consultant.

“I enjoyed it so much that I started my own interior design staging company so I could have a flexible schedule for my children,” Powers said. “I loved helping people remodel their homes and prepare their homes for sale so that they could move onto something else. The 50-plus tips that are generated from my room-by-room evaluations have been proven to help clients sell their homes faster and for a higher price.”

After enjoying weekend getaways and holiday vacations in their family Cordillera home, they decided to make Cordillera their permanent residence. Powers transitioned her interior design skills into her current career as a real estate broker.

“I was so involved with the home owners and/or sellers that I realized I wanted to be involved in the buying process as well,” she said. “Real estate just tied it all together — my love for teaching people, interior design, home selection, selling, customer service, etc.”

“I’m willing to do what it takes on my part to make Access Real Estate successful,” she said. “I am eager to provide my home-consultation services to all of our clients in addition to being a broker. It has been a wonderful process getting to where I am today. This is what I am meant to be doing for a career. It’s always been a part of my life and I can’t wait to share it with others.”
