Generating Above-Market Returns

We’re Different.
Because You Are.

We work tirelessly on your behalf to ensure your next real estate transaction is a rousing success. From buying, selling, investing, development or ranches, our focus is simple: exceeding your needs.

Most importantly, we simplify every step of the process to ensure you save time, energy and effort. Our top-producing agents act as consultant-coaches to focus on the most important part of real estate: people.

Leverage Inefficiencies

We’re not simply brokers. With experience across every asset class and a background in wealth management, we leverage market inefficiencies to create lasting value.

Unmatched Experience

Since 2009, we’ve been part of every imaginable real estate asset class and have the unique vantage point of finding opportunities at every stage. From economic downturns to buyer’s or seller’s markets —we’ve been there.

Over-delivering Ethos

We’re not interested in average. At ALPHA, each individual and our collective team operates with an unwavering commitment to exceeding each client’s expectations.

Colorado Natives

Our Founders, Tyler and David are both Colorado Natives. Each of our expert brokers and investment professionals lives in the same neighborhoods we proudly serve clients, giving us intimate knowledge of the nuances that make a successful transaction.


No matter how unique your goals, needs and timeframes are, we’re here to get you across the finish line. From unique properties, to unconventional loan financing and more —we’ll get you there.

Our Team



With 20+ years of experience and approaching $500,000,000 in transactions, Ty Zakovich brings unmatched expertise across every facet of a successful real estate deal. From off-market properties to unconventional financing —Ty relentlessly gets deals across the finish line while exceeding his client's goals.

ALPHA Real Estate Associates was founded to leverage market inefficiencies and provide clients with stellar returns by a dedicated team with intimate knowledge of Denver’s finest neighborhoods, including Cherry Hills, Greenwood Village and Cherry Creek. 

Prior to ALPHA, Ty formed TGP Ventures in 2010 —a real estate investment platform specializing in residential and commercial real estate within Southern California. Before TGP, he worked as an analyst at Pacifica Real Estate Fund I, a 250-million-dollar private equity fund focusing on acquiring and repositioning distressed assets. 

Ty is a proud Colorado native who lives in the same Cherry Hills neighborhood he proudly serves. When he’s not helping clients, you can find him enjoying Colorado’s outdoors, including the area’s best golf, skiing and spending time with his loving family.

David Cohen


David Cohen brings values of integrity, hard work and attention to detail to the ALPHA team that ensures every facet of your real estate transaction is clearly communicated. As a proud Colorado native, David attended Colorado State University —walking onto the CSU basketball team to earn a starting role.

At ALPHA, David works to initiate transparent communication throughout every part of your transaction, from the first phone call to signing the dotted line. David can be counted on to listen, advise (when needed) and be a trusted guide at any time. 

During his downtime, he enjoys nothing more than spending time with his beautiful wife and three children.



Leveraging his unique background in real estate development and finance throughout the US, Mike Kalicak helps buyers, sellers, and investors achieve their goals. With an unwavering commitment to working with integrity, Mike creates a sense of urgency to help his clients navigate rapidly changing markets and ensures they stay informed with open communication and expert guidance.

Mike earned a Finance and Economics degree while playing basketball at the University of Southern Indiana. Upon graduating, he moved to Colorado to finance innovative technology and energy companies at a global financial institution.  Since 2017, Mike’s focus has been to develop and invest in real estate across the Rocky Mountain region and the Midwest.

His diverse background allows him to guide ALPHA's clients on a range of real estate transactions, including assisting first-time home buyers and structuring capital solutions for global companies.

Chase Puckett


As a 5th generation Colorado native, Chase Puckett brings unique insights and experience in the Colorado real estate market with a passion for helping people find dream properties that align with their lifestyles. His background includes a degree in Business Marketing from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Masters of Science in Global Energy Management from the University of Colorado Denver.

Besides being part of the ALPHA team and an agent and investor in both Colorado and Wyoming — Chase runs an Oil and Gas mineral rights brokerage that is active in all American basins. When he’s not working with clients, you can find him with his wife Charity, their 1-year-old son Cruz and enjoying his free time as an avid skydiver, helicopter and airplane pilot and on the mat practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
