Meet Ofelia Acosta
Born in Mexico to a family of 20 siblings, Ofelia Acosta learned from an early age how to stand out from the crowd. An avid traveler, she has lived in numerous places - including California and Chicago - and, prior to becoming a licensed Realtor in Kansas and Missouri, she owned a busy hair salon in Kansas City for three decades, shepherding her employees to lasting careers by funding their certification in cosmetology.
During these years as a thriving business owner - she was featured in the Kansas City Business Journal and earned the Jesse F. Flores award from the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce - people would often ask Ofelia for property advice. A native Spanish speaker, she was able to seamlessly communicate with the Hispanic community. Four years ago, Ofelia decided to obtain her license and pursue real estate in earnest. Business swiftly took off, and she was recognized in 2020 for $5 million in sales by Century21 All-Pro.
Ofelia's secret is simple: establish relationships that are not based on a commission. Clients notice and appreciate her genuine care and willingness to help them overcome financial obstacles. With thorough knowledge regarding lenders, credit repair and ITIN loans for buyers - plus tough negotiating skills for sellers - Ofelia's track record earns her many word-of-mouth referrals. Success stories range from a friend of a friend who hired her on the spot, despite having lined up another agent, and one client who "wanted to kiss her feet" for making the elusive dream home possible. She even sold one home for $10,000 more than the asking price in just 10 hours.
When she's not working hard, Ofelia is passionate about playing hard. She adores traveling, spending time with her four children and five grandchildren and basking in the great outdoors.
