When you think about teamwork, what comes to mind? Maybe it's the collective spirit of your high school sports team or the idea of rallying together at work to finish a project. But how does the team concept factor into choosing a Realtor®? As a buyer or seller, why should you care whether the professional you've chosen has the support of a team behind her?
In real estate, the concept of team often refers to a group of individuals who support a high-producing and highly-visible lead Realtor®. To be clear, this is not the type of teamwork I'm referring to. Teamwork at WREH refers to a culture of mutual respect, support and collaboration, all aimed at producing the best outcomes for our clients, agents and community. It's said that positivity breeds positivity. We've seen firsthand that the environment in which a Realtors® operates can absolutely impact the outcome of his transactions.
So getting back to the original question: how can you, as a buyer or seller, benefit from choosing to a Realtor® who is part of a team?
- Get better promotion of your property. In a team-oriented environment, agents are simply more invested in their colleagues' success. Many times, this translates into associates going out of their way to show another's property to potential buyers or working on Sunday to showcase a colleague's listing at an Open House.
- More time to market your property. Behind-the-scenes, WREH agents have a team of support professionals trained in handling print and web promotions of your property. Our agents have more time to concentrate on what they do best: selling homes.
- Benefit from better negotiation strategy. Navigating the often-turbulent waters of complex negotiations that involve one of a client's most prized possessions - their home - can get tricky. Experience and training are multiplied exponentially when agents problem-solve collaboratively. The result? Solutions and ideas that get homes sold.
There's a lot that goes into choosing a Realtor®. Building a good rapport, establishing mutual trust and having confidence in your Realtor's abilities are all important factors in selecting a real estate professional. And while I may be completely biased, I believe you'll find the kind of agent that you can trust, respect and enjoy working with at WREH, due in no small part to the positive team atmosphere we strive to create.
