Our Core Values that we believe:

Market KNOWLEDGE and information are the keys to capturing the maximum value in any real estate transaction, and that the most valuable roles that a realtor can play for a client is that of a consultative partner and service provider.

The collective efforts of a TEAM are superior to the efforts of individuals when it comes to providing the full array of services necessary for a smooth real estate transaction.

We love our COMMUNITY and act to make it a better place to live.  We choose to take an active role by local community organizations.  We support our clients before, during, and after the transaction.

EXCELLENCE in any endeavor requires exceptional commitment and hard work. We must leave no stone unturned in our drive to flawlessly execute every task we encounter, and we must seek to utilize the full spectrum of resources at our disposal in our pursuit of client results.

Beliefs – We believe in creating a culture with a positive attitude, high energy, and a learning-based perspective.  When combining these elements in a team based structure, we believe that excellence can be achieved.

Perspective – We attract other talented people that have a desire to achieve.  Integrity is always doing the right thing.  Our track record comes from being customer oriented and solving problems.  We don’t complain, we take action towards improvement on a daily basis.

Career path options

The wonderful thing about real estate is that there are so many different roles for you to thrive.  We are modeling and learning from the very best in the industry to build our team.  The best part is that when you join, you’ll be fast tracked on a path to success right away!  The barrier to entry in the real estate industry is somewhat low, and the sad reality is that the failure rate is also very high.  When someone joins our team, they instantly have more focus, accountability, training, and leads than they would receive out on their own.  As a result, the odds of success are MUCH higher.

Step 2:  Now what?  Begin onboarding

After you've obtained your real estate license, it's time to choose a firm to join.  There are a number of options out there and we recommend that you check out at least a couple of them before making a final decision.  After all, real estate is the type of career that rewards commitment and dedication.

In the meantime, you'll want to start preparing for your new career in real estate.  Some basics you'll want to start with include:  a written biography/resume to share with potential clients, a business plan (or at least partly created), and your finances in order with a business bank account. Don't worry, there's a lot more to do and we're here to help.

Step 3:  Making it!

The National Association of Realtors says that the median number of transaction sides in 2021 was 12 units sold.  If you get to this level, then you're starting to make it.  Congratulations!!!  While you're starting to earn some real income, you also probably have a number of expenses to run your business.  However, you can start to see that this could actually be a sustainable career option for you.  As you get closer to 20 or 30 transaction sides, then you really begin to feel like you're making it.

Step 4:  Scaling Up!

In order to really make a great living in the real estate industry, you will want to scale your business.  This means you need to invest in additional marketing and staff to truly grow.  In our experience this really becomes noticeable around 30 transactions per year.  You might start to feel like you're working all the time and will truly want additional leverage in place.  This is where transaction coordinators, marketing assistants, and additional agents on your team can truly help.

Step 5:  Killing it!

At this point you've built a solid business, you're generating great referrals from past clients and new business from a variety of sources.  Some people choose to lead a larger team, become an industry thought leader, or just take more market share.  This can be anywhere from 80-500 sales per year, or more depending on how you build your business.  We would love to be a part of your journey as you scale!
