Who We Are
Empowering Real Estate Brokerages with tools and systems to positively impact their community and community of agents.
We believe that the future of real estate is local.
You’re probably thinking, yeah, we know real estate is local… but how many times have we seen Real Estate Franchises focus on how big they can get, how many sales they had last month and how fast they are growing? The message those clients get is it’s all about the Real Estate Office. But we know real estate is about way more than getting clients and plopping them into a house without a second thought.
Our clients are our people! Our Agents are our people! They are our friends and neighbors.
We believe showcasing, serving in, and celebrating the communities we are part of and connecting our people to the places they’ve chosen to live is the way to conduct a transaction.
We are proud to be locally-focused throughout the sales process and we believe LOCAL is the future of real estate.
Our Core Values are more than just words written in the policy and procedures manual. We hire based on these. We fire based on these. Our people embody these Core Values:
