Whoa! What an exciting week this has been! My first week at my new office, RE/MAX Affiliates, NE …
Having been told over and over (brainwashing?) that the real estate giant, RE/MAX would be like working in a shark tank … I immediately found that to be quite the opposite. Everyone I have come in contact with thus far has been incredibly helpful to me during my transition. The caliber of my fellow agents alone makes RE/MAX a wonderful place to grow and take my career to the next level.
My new office is bustling and full of experienced agents, so their ads hold true. They all seem to be quite happy with their “home away from home” — I’ve met many “names” that I’ve seen around town and there is even an agent who has been featured on one of my favorite shows on HGTV, House Hunters. I am surrounded by, in my opinion, the best of the best and I am loving that I have become part of their family. So please allow me to dismiss the first myth … RE/MAX agents are not a bunch of piranhas, they are just really good at what they do.
My new broker, Alan Stasson, has followed through on everything he presented to me during my interview process and then some. If you are thinking of a move yourself, which is why I started this blog … there wasn’t much on the net to help me .. be sure to interview with many different brokerages before making a decision!! I highly recommend doing this to see whose personality best meshes with YOURS. Alan seemed quite genuine and he was not pushy. He allowed me to make the decision to come to his office on my own without hounding me, and without knocking the competition, that impressed me, he didn’t need to knock the competition AND most importantly, the fact that he came highly recommended by OTHER AGENTS. I found that to be something very important during my search for a new home away from home. The opinion of the people that work under someone holds its weight in gold. He has been available to me whenever a question came about, and believe me there have been many during this transition! Feel free to call him personally and ask, 215-335-6900.
This week I listed my first property as a RE/MAX agent … it is already under contract and I have very happy clients, as they say, it’s the experience that counts! I am off and running and looking back I am wondering why it took me so long to make this move in the first place! I already feel at home in my new place. Now where is the copier again?
Thinking of making a move yourself? Contact me! Whether a home buyer or a home seller (or an agent with transition questions) get in touch with me, I love to help people!
