This week marked the start of a new experience as I leave Keller Williams Realty where I've been for half a decade. After an intense interview process, evaluation phase, and ultimate decision, I decided to join RE/MAX Affiliates in Valparaiso, Indiana. My new real estate office has a wonderful broker and features an atmosphere of success with blended with professional humility. We have many proven agents with years of experience who've seen many different markets, and have great support from RE/MAX OF INDIANA as well as a huge national referral network of over 87,000 agents at last count.
It is the national power of the brand that sets RE/MAX apart. The company was the 2011 recipient of the prestigous J.D. Power and Associates award as the top-rated Real Estate company for customer satisfaction. According to another study by REALTrends 500, RE/MAX agents are the most productive agents in the country, averaging more sides than any other competitor. Locally in Porter County and Valparaiso, our offices are in the top 5 in gross sales with an established sales force. The company offers a fair and rewarding commission structure, and the technical tools I desire to grow my business. And furthermore, the company's preferred charities include Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and the Susan G. Komen Foundation to which I can lend support.
Joining a proven market leader offers me the ability to expand my service, reach my potential, and pursue the long-term opportunity in this strong franchise. I'm very thankful for all I've learned and achieved at Keller Williams Realty, but very excited to journey into the future with RE/MAX.
