Change is Good

By
Real Estate Agent with Majestic Properties 3061802

We would like to announce Miamism Team's new home - Majestic Properties.

It was time for a change, a change that would compliment not only our business and marketing style, but a change that would benefit each one of our clients individually.

Majestic Properties and MiamismColdwell Banker was good to us and we are the first to admit that, it offered a strong corporate backing that Rick and I were used to with our prior corporate lives as an architect and accountant, but there were also limitations and we had to think past our personal comfort and look into the future of our business as well as the type of service we offer our clients. (in other words.....the decision was by NO means easy).

Because Miami Real estate has changed, so has the way we conduct business in a way that benefits you, our client, even in a down market. We have learned that this business is not so much about us, but about you. We still hit the streets the same way as before, but we also blog and are very active in the social networking aspect of the Internet. We have had to think outside the box and use the tools before us in way no one else has, putting us at the forefront of the industry. (I know, I know....tooting my own horn is not polite). Majestic Properties will not only support our new methods, but welcomes them and will help us customize marketing strategies one client at a time and expose ourselves to every new marketing medium available to be able to offer better service.

We found a company that will compliment our style. Majestic Properties is a respected full-service real estate organization that focuses on providing the highest level of service by employing cutting edge resources. Talk about a match made in heaven!

They have an amazing reputation in South Florida, with beautiful high design offices in the Design District and Miami Beach; and in 2006, INC 500 Magazine ranked the company fastest growing, privately held, full-service real estate company in the United States.

Majestic Properties successfully identifies industry trends in residential and commercial markets, incorporates cutting-edge technological tools, hires passionate and dedicated agents and staff and plays a prominent philanthropic role in the community. It boasts an internal Advertising and PR agency, a one-stop marketing shop for Majestic agents and clients. Additionally, Majestic helps customers from all over the world with financing and mortgage, and then there's an interior design team and furniture showroom. From real estate to marketing to financing to design, Majestic Properties offers it all.

We also have a new Miamism Team member! Karen Alvarez, who, as our buyer's agent, will compliment our growing business and help us provide even better service. Karen is known in the industry for her superior business ethics and outstanding customer service.

Making a change is never easy. It was especially difficult for us because we did not want our customers to be affected in any way. We are looking forward to using all the positive energy we are getting from to help our business expand to the next level.

Hey AJ - thank you! - the move feels right and it feels good

B & C - what you mention is the easy part (IMHO) - challenge is preparing clients, coordinating listing expirations and communicating to the sellers - I will write about the experience in a couple of weeks at Agent Genius (when I find a little time and everything settles down)

Steve - right on!!

Allison - awww! thank you....you are very sweet.

Neal - It already feels right - thanks.

Ines.... making a change is never easy, no matter how good it might be.  Just the work and effort to make the switch and to notify your past clients can be a pain. And your current clients... let alone, getting use to a new company and new people, no matter how friendly and coroperative.  Wishing you and Rick the best of luck.

Dear Ines and Rick,

I am so delighted to hear that you've made this move. As oneof your top fans in the area, I know this is going to be great for you both. I am not familiar with Majestic, and yet I know you've done your homework and it is the right fit for you.

Lots of good luck to you, and some good things are happening in my area, and hopefully I'll be sending you some of my friends.

All the best,

Lois

Hey Jeff - yes you mention a few of the challenges, but our clients is not one of them because they trust our judgement and they have always hired us for us.  Thanks for the encouragement though, it's great to know we have friends in the blogosphere.

Hi Lois - thanks so much for coming by and sending good wishes our way, it means a lot to me.  We have great things cooking with Majestic and have been awaiting the change with child-like excitement.  You know where to find us if you ever need us.

I am sure that your decision to make the move to Majestic Properties is not something you did in  a whim. When ones becomes more experienced, you look for a company that fits more your style, your needs and your vision then the other way around.Happy Transition!

Patricia - thank you! thank you!

Lloyd - what's amazing is that a lot of people start out with mega companies and never leave because it's too much trouble (whether the company fits their style or not).  I think brokerages are changing and rightly so, but those that remain rigid are the ones that will see the real change!  Happy 4th to you!

I happened on this while watching the tile videos.  I loved the one with the kids doing the black stained tiles. 

Good luck to both of you at your new company!  We'll talk at Inman.

Ines - The company sounds very interesting, not your typical broker firm.  I'd be interested in hearing more about how it enhances the skills that you and Rick bring to your clients.
