A different kind of team

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Realty West CalBRE #01458572

My owner is a Realtor with Century 21 Award in San Diego.I've noticed a lot of Featured Posts lately that have the word TEAM in their titles.

Some apparently like the team concept, while at least one didn't, although that one person likes to DO A LOT OF YELLING IN HER POSTS, so I rarely get past the first paragraph in any of here posts because I don't like people who yell and reading so many sentences done in ALL CAPITAL letters is just too tiring on the eyes.

Nonetheless, the posts I've read seem to be talking about teams in a traditional sense of having everyone be Realtors, Transaction Coordinators, phone clerks, etc.

My team is totally different, and I do believe that my team can easily be compared to medical teams, at least the medical teams that my PPO sends me to.

My general practitioner doctor has as members of his team a pediatrician, an OBGYN, a heart surgeon, a brain surgeon, an ear/nose/throat specialist, a dermatologist, etc. So when I go to him with a problem, and he determines that I need to see a throat specialist, he sends me to the one who is on his team.

My team includes my Power Partners. Power Partners are people whom you would call if you need their services for yourself. Mine for my real estate team include:

  1. Other Realtors
  2. Mortgage lenders
  3. Home inspectors
  4. Plumbers
  5. Electricians
  6. Roofing contractors
  7. Landscapers
  8. Heating and cooling professionals
  9. Chimney sweeps
  10. Door and window installers
  11. Etc.

If you are not part of a traditional real estate team, and even if you are, create a team of professionals to help your Clients with any of their needs. It's a win-win-win-win-win-win-win for all involved.

I couldn't agree more. Your team sounds like it works perfectly. Everyone could use a situation like that!

Hey, Ann - When I got into real estate, I didn't really understand how important it was to have a team of professionals that I could refer. I certainly learned on my very first transaction. Fortunately, I had a lot of great people in my office who had lots of referrals. Not all of them panned out, but we each have to create our own lists of people who work like we work, however that may be.

Hey, Carra - The only one I'm missing right now is a good electrician. The one I used to have let me down one too many times recently. I also had a mortgage lender let me down, but I've found another one, and he's an ActiveRain member. Ideally I'd like to have three people in each profession, but that's proving more difficult than I thought it would be. Half these people not only don't answer their phones, but they don't have voice mail either. Amazing.
