Stability & Opportunities. Many Real Estate Companies have come & gone during the last 3-4 years. Red Realty, on the other hand, has prospered & has received recent recognition from the National Business Journal as one of the most successful real estate companies in Middle Tennessee. The distinctive, Red Realty signs are seemingly everywhere; they literally dot the landscape, both in Residential & Commercial markets, thereby providing leads & opportunities for all of it’s agents. Those who have chosen to work Opportunity Time, have clearly benefited from leads that would likely not have been available otherwise. Some Red Agents have seen their real estate business income flourish by representing builders at New Developments, unlike some real estate companies who hit agents with a double whammy by charging extra referral fee deductions from commissions ranging from 40-50% for leads generated by their company web site, or additional fees for including agent profiles on those same company web sites. Red Realty does none of that. Moreover, Red tries not to nickel & dime it’s agents. For example, many other companies charge agents 5 cents/page to run black & white copies run through their office printer. Others charge “hotel fees” each month for using their training room & monthly technology fees (for obsolete equipment) & advertising fees regardless of whether or not agents even have any listings. Some agents at other companies have felt burned by having to compete with their own Broker for listings and/or buyers. That is not the case at Red.
Freedom to Refer Clients & Customers to Service Providers that you feel are best. Red Realty does not coerce it’s affiliates or their clients into using businesses where owners or brokers may have a financial interest. This may surprise some of you but agents at some local companies are required to use certain Title Companies, Lenders & other Real Estate Service Providers that are owned or partially owned by the real estate company in which they are affiliated. After reviewing such disclosures which are part of closing documents on the “other side” of transactions involving Red Realty & it’s clients, it has become abundantly clear that some real estate companies are effectively gouging their own clients with abnormally high Lender & Title Company fees. That practice has enabled at least one real estate company to try to entice agents to join their company with too good to be true, commission splits, etc. Well, can you imagine what will happen down the road when clients of those types of companies discover that they were forced to pay much higher than customary rates for said services? Agents within those companies I believe, will likely face the ire (& loss of credibility & future referrals) from past clients who, most assuredly, will discover at some point, that they were duped into paying unnecessary & excessive charges.
