I’ve noticed Realty Executives is a major sponsor of Active Rain. I feel I should add my testimony. One of the major reasons I joined Realty Executives was due to a deal I never closed. I had written an offer to purchase for a property listed by a Realty Executive agent. I was impressed with the professional manner this agent handled the entire process. The buyer had trouble with the financing, the listing agent suggested new lenders. A few other problems effected the offer and we eventually executed a cancellation mutual release.
I was so impressed by the professionalism of this agent I did everything I could to get another buyer into the property. Someone else got the sale before I did, but the impression this agent left was lasting.
When the time came for me to make a change, I called the agent to get more information on Realty Executives. I was surprised to find out I had been dealing with the manager of the office I was interested in joining. I was pleased with the options and freedom available in matters such as listing fees. I was even allowed to maintain my farming neighborhood even though it over lapped the manager’s farm. Another important factor was the web site offered by Realty Executives. After joining Realty Executives I found the web site more than easy to customize just the way I wanted it to appear. I was able to add information in a manner I found difficult to add using other site builders.
I soon found out the entire staff was just as friendly and informative. They were all eager to share marketing ideas and concepts I had been impressed were trade secrets. I guess the fact this is a smaller office may play a part. The other agents shared listing presentation methods I had not known.
There are no office hours, almost everyone works from a home office. We constantly share ideas and information essential in building a successful home office such as equipment and supplies. We also share contact information for contractors and lenders. We also share lead generating concepts.
I have found joining Realty Executives is more like joining a family compared to a business. Did I mention the commission splits are by far a lot better than other offices I interviewed with. It’s like having your cake, eating it and having enough to share.
