First, we’re a team, an integrated broker force that fosters cooperation and support. We share market knowledge, developments and insights. We talk about what we are doing, our listings, our marketing, and how we might improve our efforts. We help each other with coaching and skills. We’re there to provide coverage for others when needed. We go out to dinner and actually have a good time with each other.
Another point of difference: most of us are full time brokers, so we’re fully dedicated professionals, up to speed on the latest technology and market developments.
We are from somewhere else. While we’ve lived in the area for many years, we began careers elsewhere. Our individual decisions to come to Bandon largely had to do with lifestyle considerations, and we then found a place in real estate. We began, however, on a larger stage and so have a broader life and business background, which helps us better serve our out of town buyers.
We don’t suffer from short attention spans. Bandon is a terriﬁc town offering more than meets the eye. Despite this, many buyers today are slow to make purchase decisions; cautious with investments after the last decade of economic chaos. They struggle to ﬁnd a home that meets their high standards. We go the distance with them, recognizing that this is a business of marathons, not sprints.
We enjoy the business. We have not only survived the downturn, we have invested in our business and prospered—all the while have a great time doing it, together.
