Alita Vigfusson

Mortgage Advisor

Alita is one of those individuals with a warm heart and an unbreakable spirit, effortlessly connecting with everyone she meets and putting them instantly at ease. A former 36-year resident of New York and a single mother of five, she honed her professional skills in corporate office management, sales, and human resources. Alita’s unwavering dedication to the needs of her family led her to seek a better quality of life, prompting her move to Greenville, South Carolina in 2014—a city she fell in love with at first sight.

Following the purchase of her first home and witnessing Greenville's rapid growth, Alita chose to pursue a career in the real estate industry. While studying and raising her kids and juggling full-time work, her determination paid off as she obtained licenses as both a real estate agent and then as a Mortgage Loan Officer. Alita found her perfect fit partnering with First Home Equity Loans—a veteran-owned company. With a son serving on active duty in the Marine Corps overseas and a profound respect for the military and first responders, Alita was drawn to First Home Equity Loans not only for its exemplary service but also for its veteran ownership.

Outside of her professional pursuits, Alita enjoys outdoor activities like hiking and camping. She loves delighting her family and friends with her culinary skills and as a former bartender, she is quite adept at crafting the perfect cocktail! Her true passion is travel, leading her to explore new destinations across the globe or right here in the USA, where she loves to unwind on the beach with her toes in the sand and a good book in hand, always seeking to expand her knowledge and understanding of the world.

Alita is committed to empowering others to confidently navigate their homeownership and real estate investment journeys with clarity and insight. Drawing on her diverse background and experiences, she collaborates with her team to tailor creative solutions perfectly suited to her clients' needs. Known for her honesty and genuine care for her clients’ interests, she is dedicated to guiding them toward the life they envision.
