Though this posting is meant for other Realtors, Buyers and Sellers will see right away why working with a Realtor representing Keller Williams Realty is to their advantage. (For Buyers and Sellers reading this entry, you may wish to begin with the previous posting first.)
REALTORS, like probably most of you, I was not even looking to change Brokerages. I loved Re/MAX, and the management has offered for me to come back at any time, so there are no ‘hurt’ feelings, and nothing occurred to make me angry causing me to leave.
I had been hearing from a KW manager in San Clemente over the past year. Though I can’t even remember how we first came to know each other, I’ll bet he does. Each time we talked, he kept making suggestions about how to further build my business. (I do run my Real Estate work as a business and not just as an individual selling Real Estate; and, I’ve had lots of experience running small businesses.) A few weeks ago, he asked me to meet him for lunch. I told him straight up I was not going to leave Re/MAX, as I was very happy there, and I most certainly was not going to relocate to a San Clemente office as most of my business tends to fall around Irvine; however, I can’t tell you how impressive he was with his marketing knowledge, and I knew I’d pick up some more helpful information. For me, not going to San Clemente was a very good decision.
In this most recent discussion, KW’s ‘old’ way of doing business that you may have heard of in the past … bringing Realtors into KW so you could make money on the ‘down rung’ never came up. This is no longer KW’s big push. The benefits are their support and the new E-Edge Advantage (see my previous Blog entry). However, I’ve since learned that earning money this way, through the company is willable and who wouldn’t want that for their kids.
The San Clemente manager recommended I come see his ‘good friend’ in Newport Beach. I was so impressed with what I saw here, it was amazing! I attended a very enthusiastic office meeting, a bit like the style of Anthony Robbins; and was invited to their holiday party without even joining. The party was well attended and the enthusiasm was abundant! Everyone wants to know you and help you get to where you want to go! They even had a $20mil producer come up from San Diego and talk about how he works. He will be presenting a class in January with no worries about someone ‘steeling’ his way of doing business!
The company offers progressive ways of marketing and is always looking to make adjustments to what they do, bettering your future. I heard at my new Realtor Orientation class today that Nationally they run in the black and it’s evident in the way they run their offices. Everyone is smiling!
Though I’m just getting set up at my new office in Newport Beach, CA and my website is not completely up and running, please feel free to visit my NEW company website by clicking here and see all the wonderful products offered! Financially, I believe you’ll find the cost of working here very competitive. If you want to contact me to discuss all the advantages, please do at 949-929-6343!
