When I started Maximo Properties LLC, we had some traditional options on how to setup the Brokerage:
First option, we could get big, hire as many agents as possible, setup multiple offices, hire lots of support staff…etc.
Second option, we could stay small, do a small number of transaction per year, charging the client a 2.5% brokerage fee.
Although those two first two options are great alternatives, we picked a third option. Design the brokerage, with the client in mind, around 3 key areas: 1) Save the client money 2) Provide an excellent customer experience and 3) Offer innovative products.
First and foremost, save the client money. In order to provide the maximum savings for our clients, we needed to keep overhead low, use technology where possible, and keep processes efficient. This allows us to charge fees as low as .5%* and rebate as much as 2%*. In essence, potentially saving our clients thousands of dollars compared to a traditional agent.
Secondly, we want to provide the client an excellent customer experience. From the initial meetup to walking the client through every step of the real estate process, we want the client to feel confident that we have their best interest at heart and we will work diligently to ensure that they have all the knowledge and expertise to make informed decisions.
Third, we want to offer innovative products. That is why we are include Matterport 3D virtual tours. It is technology that will assist our sellers with selling their houses. Eventually would like to include other products such as drone videos and remodeling assistance.
With these 3 key areas identified, we are confident that we have designed the brokerage around the client!
