Gratitude Post #6 - my business support team

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

Today I was aware, yet again, of how fortunate I am to have a wonderful support team for my business, both formal and informal.

First there is Rachael, my Client Care Concierge who goes the extra mile to deliver the unexpected to our clients. They love her! Not only does she excel at that, she is an adept transaction coordinator, social media guru, and provides a wonderful experience at our open houses. She works with me full-time, and is full of energy and ideas, as well as being my link to how millennials think.

My Virtual Assistant, Teena, has worked with me for well over 10 years. Based near Toronto Canada, she handles much of my marketing support and reminds me of deadlines for my newsletter, etc., which we prepare together. I'd be lost without her.

My teenage granddaughter often helps with mailings, adding labels and stamps; she'll assist at open houses too, and is great at showing visitors the amenities at a townhouse or condo complex.

My husband is my IT guy, keeping my various programs up and running. He pitches in whenever extra help is needed, whether it's running to Staples, driving errands, or putting out signs for Opens.

My daughters spread the word about my listings to friends, and refer business to me.

Working with the support of family and friends make the long days happy ones. It's easy to get caught up in the busyness of work, so making time to celebrate our successes with all involved is a must.

On Monday Rachael, my husband and I will celebrate a recent milestone with dinner at Green's Restaurant. More than once we've enjoyed a spa day at Cavallo Point or at Costanoa on the San Mateo County coast. 

Feeling gratitude, and taking time to show gratitude for those who support our business - just the best!

Good morning, Lottie... we all have a team to help whether we realize it or not... sometimes the makeup of the team is just a bit different than what we think when we say real estate team.

Hi Brian England and Wayne Martin - what would we do without our teams? 

Good morning Nina Hollander - yes, indeed, the makeup of teams in unique. I'll be writing again about other support services that I count on and for which I'm grateful.

Good morning Hay Francais - thanks for your kind words, and welcome to Active Rain. This is a good place to be, with lots of helpful, friendly people who share freely. 

I always laugh and say that real estate is a family business. Last night Rachael and I hosted a buyer information night and my husband was there, putting out signs, welcoming guests, setting up, cleaning up -- family is the best!!
