Here's One For The Team!
We are starting to see more and more teams created in real estate agencies.
What is the true meaning of a "Team"? Doesn't that mean that the group of people work together to accomplish something? Maybe some of these "Teams" are just trying to accomplish a top ranking name in MLS or within their company. The more people you have on a team, the more likely you are to get to the top, right?
I think many are starting to forget the real meaning of the word.
I scratch your back, you scratch mine! This is how I think of teamwork. Finding a way to work together to reach the ultimate goal. Is the goal for our benefit or for the clients? I know, we all like being at the top.
My real estate team "The Kuney-Todaro Team" works together for us and for the client. Maybe one has the flexibility to run a buyer better than the other. One might cover areas that the other doesn't. One no longer does the active sales side but now takes care of all our marketing. It's a comforting feeling knowing that I can refer someone to one of my team members knowing that they will do the same for a situation that doesn't work for them.
The client always appreciates knowing they are put in the best hands. It's a struggle for some to just pass off a full commission, but in the end it all evens out when there is a properly functioning team putting the needs of a client first. I'd rather refer a client to one of my team members and collect a referral fee than not give them the service they deserve.
I am fortunate to be a member of a team that works this way.
