Please allow me to begin by telling you how much I love my career selling real estate for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Three years ago, when I first started in this business, I never would have imagined how much I would grow in all areas of life - including both personally and professionally.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices gives me everything that I need to be successful. BHHS not only provides cutting edge technology, but also the training and education to use it. The tools available to me always make my clients feel second to none. I stay on top of client contact and prospect management with a wide array of communication tools and my personal website. My customers never doubt they are working with a professional with market watch, property searches, up to the second news updates and unlimited "how to" tips at their fingertips.
I feel amazing support and encouragement from every division of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices team. Our company often holds educational and inspirational events which provide a great team building opportunity. This attitude of team has flourished into an office culture where co-listings and referrals are common. I love being able to trust my fellow BHHS team members and know that no matter where my client is looking to live, I can trust they'll get the best service through one of our BHHS team members.
Educational opportunities are endless at Berkshire Hathaway. I have the ability to stay up to date on local and global market data with webinars, conventions, local events, podcasts and technology trainings. Did I mention our regularly scheduled staff meetings? New mobile and tablet friendly applications also keep me up to date on the go.
My fellow associates and Broker/Owner, Steve Fase, are constantly motivating me to do the best job I can do. I look forward to improving my service every day with the tools that BHHS offers me. Other companies have made me offers, but I would never consider leaving BHHS. I can honestly say that it is a privilege and honor to wear the Cabernet and Cream.
I am very proud to be a BHHS team member. The tools and support provided by the company are superior to anything our competitors can offer. They have helped me to both run and grow my business successfully with the power of the No. 1 Brand in Real Estate. The platform the company has provided me incorporates local knowledge with international recognition and exposure. This is a unique combination! As agents, we are empowered with these tools and information every day, but now our customers (today's buyers & sellers) can also experience the absolute best as their partner in real estate.
I also love that BHHSMI and BHHSNI have strong local roots. That culture is still embedded in our culture today. We receive the same level of support from local staff to the corporate and national levels. The management and service is top of the line, but they don't stop there. They are constantly inquiring about how they can do better and help me continue to grow and provide excellent service to my clients. They are always responsive and happy to help.
People, resources, systems and tools are the four pillars to any successful business model. We have the absolute best in all of these areas as Berkshire Hathaway agents.
My decision to join Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices was not solely based on the tools provided. I've experienced firsthand the desire of Broker/Owner, Steve Fase, to ensure his agents succeed in this industry. As an added bonus, he also provides the direct support to allow that to happen.
I started with my office when the company was still Prudential. Steve was always investigating something new and technologically advanced to keep me on the leading edge in the industry.
His energy and passion are contagious.
In addition to superior tools, he also found exceptional staff, a statistician, talented office managers, endless opportunities for training, marketing experts, web designers, etc.
His choice to be an innovator in the transition to the Berkshire Hathaway brand is another instance of his grand vision and drive for his agents to be successful.
His confidence and belief that I will succeed in this industry humble me. I wouldn't consider working anywhere else.
Being a REALTOR®gives me the freedom to choose which brokerage holds my license. I am proud to be a part of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices for 3 main reasons unsurpassed technology, industry and brand recognition and my fellow associates.
The wide variety of marketing ideas and tools provided by Berkshire Hathaway is motivating and effective. From my personal website to my personal home search app to the ability to easily and quickly create reports, flyers and marketing tools online, I have innovative ways to win and service my listings better. Many of these tools save me money by replacing tools that I used to have to pay for out of pocket. My sellers are always pleased with the marketing and buyers love the Property Watch feature for online searches. All of these tools make me a better agent.
In addition to the tools at BHHS, the brand itself stands for integrity and quality. The high standard of the brand for its affiliates guarantees that our company will continue to provide a professional level of service. I am proud to be affiliated with the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Michigan Real Estate team and take part in the strong emphasis on exceptional customer service.
