Nate Monson

Executive VP, Colliers | Co-Founder, Alpine Management | Pleasant Grove | 33

Thanks to a no-negativity mindset, Nate Monson is a top real estate agent, helping clients sell and purchase investment properties across the country. Nate’s father has worked in the commercial space as well, so the potential has always been in Nate’s blood — and now he’s an industry leader. In 2019, his first year in the industry, he became the top first-year agent in the state with over $75 million in sold investments. In 2022, he ranked as the youngest on the list of the Top 10 Colliers Agents. And to date, he has achieved over $850 million in total transaction volume. He and his partner, Brandon Goodman, also co-founded Alpine Management in 2023, a commercial property and asset management company, which has acquired over 1 million square feet of commercial assets across six states. Talk about a deal maker!

MAIN MOTIVATION My family. My goal has always been to put myself in a position to retire young, or at least semi-retire at a young age, so I can spend more time with them. SHARPER SKILLS Never letting a commission get in the way of a deal or a relationship is something I’ve learned from my partner, Brandon. In a 100-percent commission job, it was easy to get fixated on getting the quickest pay days, but I’ve learned that no commission is worth burning bridges. In the end, you always end up making more by building strong relationships. COMBATING DOUBT I find myself to be fairly optimistic and I credit this to what ideas I allow to rent out space in my head. I don’t give the negative thoughts a place to reside and try to force them out when they enter in. PRINCIPLES OF SUCCESS My parents instilled in me the value of hard work, and I’ve always prided myself on my ability to use effort to compensate for my shortcomings. I may not be able to outsmart someone, but I can certainly outwork them if I need to. GOOD BIZ ADVICE In “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” Dale Carnegie shares a story about responding to a letter that infuriated him. Rather than sending the response while he was upset, he stuck the letter in a drawer for two days and responded once he had calmed down. This advice to not respond in anger has served me well. LIVING LEGACY I hope to be remembered as someone who friends and colleagues could count on to get the job done, and to advise them on what is in their best interest.
