Shelley Bridge brings her 40 + years of experience to both the buying and selling sides of the real estate business. When it comes to questions about market conditions, negotiating, title insurance or mortgage problems Shelley has seen most things before and if she hasn’t, she probably knows where to get the reliable answers her clients need to make good decisions. Starting her career in 1981, she has worked in both the strong buyer’s market of the 1980’s and the strong seller’s market of the 1990’s and understands what it takes to make transactions happen in both types of markets.
Shelley also understands the unique way homes are sold compared to other types of products. According to the multiple listing service, 97% of all real estate sales are co-op sales. This means that different brokers will represent the buyer and seller. Thus, Shelley knows that by maintaining a spotless reputation by treating her competitors with honesty and respect is vital to her business. Her fellow Realtors will want to sell her listings and will accept offers from her buyers.
Shelley is hard working and patient. She learned to work hard growing up in Iowa where work ethic was highly valued and as the child of depression era parents. She learned patience prior to entering real estate by working as a Physical Therapist. She graduated from the Mayo Clinic School of Physical Therapy in 1973 and worked a short time at Denver Health, then seven years at Craig Hospital with spinal cord injury and head injury patients.
Pam is a Colorado native and graduated with a BA in Business from Western State College. She first practiced Real Estate in Virginia in 1989. Pam continued in real estate during another relocation, to Illinois, before returning to Colorado in 1998 to raise a family. For 15 years, Pam used her business skills to follow her passion for garden design and owned and operated her own landscape design company. Pam updated her license in 2011 and joined the Bridge Team in 2012. She shares a similar value system of hard work, professionalism, integrity and exceptional customer service.
Pam truly enjoys applying her creative energy and vision to help Buyers see how they can create future value in their homes and showing Sellers how they can get the most money for their homes in the least amount of time. She tours property on a regular basis and keeps a close eye on the ever changing market. Pam is an expert negotiator and relentless when it comes to getting an offer accepted. She attends inspections, negotiates inspection concerns and keeps in close contact with the Buyer’s lender through closing to ensure earnest money is protected and closing date is met without issue.
Alex studied Geography at UCLA and spent some time living in Los Angeles following his degree completion. Prior to getting into his career in Real Estate (Licensed in 2015), Alex worked in home performance for a couple years and was on track to become a certified Building Performance Analyst by the Building Performance Institute (BPI). Alex merges his education in spatial analytics, building performance, and small business administration and marketing, to the benefit of our clients. Just like his mom Shelley, Alex closely monitors market statistics and conditions, and works daily to be a great Listing Agent. He is a self-described analytical who loves to dig into the data, help his clients understand the numbers, and strategize how to best capitalize on the market conditions to best meet their goals. He can be found taking a listing from start to finish for one of his personal clients, or working in a Utility role to help manage projects and get Bridge Team listings to the finish line.
Alex prides himself on being an exceptional Buyer’s Agent for his clients, and his track record shows it. Whether it takes looking at 10 homes, or 100 homes, he loves the challenge of helping clients identify and secure the “right one” for their unique set of circumstances. Alex helps his clients navigate the details of the home buying process from start to finish, and will be around to help them strategize the best time to buy-and/or-sell in the future. Alex is focused on the details and loves to help our clients help achieve their real estate goals.
Alex was born and raised in Denver. You may find him spending his free time with friends, family, and with his girlfriend Alex (yes they are both named Alex…). They’re often out walking their dog Mario, enjoying a local establishment, rooting for local sports teams, playing soccer with friends, and taking in the local music scene.

As a licensed team member, Katy can show homes, prepare contract materials and address most questions and concerns on both the Buying and Selling sides of the business, as well.
