So the last time I wrote on this subject (Virtual vs Brick & Mortar) I got a lot of feedback, varying opinions and even a little criticism. Of course, that was almost 4 years ago... and boy have we seen a lot of change in the market (dugh) and even the real estate industry (sigh).
I own a small Brokerage in little "ole" Boise Idaho and I have been referring to us as a "HYBRID" model.
Sounds catchy... I could explain but dinner is almost ready and the wonderful wife of almost 23 years has been preparing her infamous white chili. Please do not take that the wrong way due to our Boise Idaho address. As my wife grew up just outside of San Francisco were we lived in Northern California for many years.
Back to the point... is the Tradiional Brokerage Model - BROKE? What is the new business model for real estate professionals now and in the future?
As always your feedback and opinions are truly appreciated! And your criticism is welcome, especially if it creates more intrigue to the discussion. I'm looking for insight to better our brokerage so that my Team Members can benefit, as I understand they are Vision Real Estate!
