On a recent listing appointment I was asked if I was “part of a team?” My immediate reaction was, why? but then calmly said to the seller, I am my own Team. No one works for me, you speak directly to me not to an assistant, you get ME, no one else!
Not that a team of REALTORS® in the real estate world are a bad thing but I do feel that the vast majority of people may think you get more from a REALTOR® if they belong to a “Team”.
I look at a Team as all my other fellow REALTORS®, whether they are in my own office or in any office. When selling your home you co-broke the listing, this is splitting the commission between the listing office and selling office. So there’s my team. I consider each and every agent that I have a transaction with a TEAM. We both have to get it done and work together to have that happen.
What does a seller gain from using a team vs. an individual agent? I just don’t know.
I personally speak to each and every seller or buyer when they call, I personal return emails and text messages. I am the listing coordinator, the transaction coordinator, the general administrative person and team leader of ME. My personal experience is to give my clients & customers the service they deserve!
I am my own team!
