So, I’ve been in the real estate industry for a year now. I have had numerous clients, a great deal of closings and have been approached by many other brokerages to join their team. But in order to understand why I chose to work with EXIT Realty Professionals and, more importantly, choose to stay, I need to break it down in a nutshell.
How it happened
When I first got my license, I went around and approach several offices, as was expected of me, to sign me up and work with them as a licensed agent. I went to Prudential, Royal LePage, Remax and more. They were a tad callous, brief and far too formal for me to feel like I would fit in. But then came a phone call from my mother of all people. She had been speaking with a property lawyer, Cameron Rhindress, and he had nothing but good things to say about EXIT Realty and, more specifically, EXIT Realty Professionals in Sackville.
It all added up
I made an appointment, sat down with Broker Sue Grace and owner Dave Grace, and was hooked, not only on the EXIT ‘formula,’ but also on the type of people they were and the environment in their office. Surrounded by professionalism with oodles of friendliness made the office feel like a place of work and also a hang out spot with other agents who were to become my friends. I signed up that day.
Great for new agents or pros
For anyone thinking of getting into the Real Estate business, here is why I recommend EXIT Realty Professionals, above other brokerages and EXIT offices as well, to you:
- A great office environment.
- An AMAZING lead generating system (I have so far gotten 2 buyer and one listing lead within three months).
- Access to a high traffic kiosk at the Sackville Superstore that generates at least 6 leads a week for agents who take shifts there.
- Free training with experienced agents and free sales training via EXIT Realty Corp. International.
Now, you tell me. As a new agent, without all these resources and friendly guiding owners and Brokers – do you really think you’re going to do well in your first year in Real Estate in HRM? I wouldn’t know – because I made the right decision.
