"There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom," a famous quote that hit home with our team as we began preparing our business plan for another challenging year in the real estate market.
Today marks our two month anniversary with First Choice Realty, and we are still so excited about this new venture. First Choice Realty was exactly what we were looking for!
With a business based primarily on referrals and repeat clients, our team felt that a "boutique-type" firm such as First Choice Realty would be the perfect fit for our style of business with its personalized style of practice. At First Choice Realty, we prefer to "Make a customer, not just a sale".
As the real estate industry has become very fragile over the last few years, we discovered that our clients were seeking more personalized service with their many different needs that came about from the changes in the industry. Buyers are now faced with many more challenges in obtaining loans - which in turn requires more hands-on guidance and help from their Realtor. Vacation property owners are seeking other options with property management services. Sellers need more direct attention and guidance with pricing strategies, staging, home improvements, and continuous information about the market conditions throughout the listing period. Clients want to know that the whole firm is working for them.
With the boutique-style firm at First Choice Realty, here's the difference you will see:
- A philosophy of "Your listings, your leads" which means that the leads that come into the office for your home will go directly to your listing agent instead of the floor duty agent. After all, your listing agent is the agent who is most knowledgeable about your home and will have the best chance at selling your home.
- An office filled with real practitioners in the real estate industry, who understand the needs of investors. Together, the 9 Realtors of First Choice Realty own over 125 investment properties of all types, i.e. residential single family homes, vacation condos, apartment buildings, commercial buildings, etc.
- Warm office environment with a serene and peaceful setting with a view of Lake Hamilton.
- In-house builder known for first-class architecture and construction.
- Property management services for our current clientele of vacation homeowners
- Leaders promoting "entrepreneurship" among the Agents of the firm, with a support and encouragement of advanced education in the industry as well as support and promotion of Independent Professionals.
- Close-knit group of top producers in the industry.
- Professionals with advanced knowledge and education in marketing skills and techniques.
