If you have been following the real estate news, you will have read a lot about the real estate "disrupters." These are the new real estate models (Compass, eXp, Purplebricks, Redfin, etc.) who have entered the market in the past six months and are shaking up traditional real estate brokerages. Each focuses on something new: better technology, money from venture capitalists, ability to buy shares of the company, reduced prices to list your house, and they have been actively recruiting agents from traditional brokerages, like ours. Our response may be to "don a cape, throw up a shield, and wield a sword," or it may be just to realize that we still have the best agents, give them the most support, know our markets and are known in them, and have loyal customers, and good reputations. We know that we will survive and thrive if we move forward doing what we do best. Keep your eyes open for news about these disrupters.
I am making a commitment to get back on track with my newsletter. My clients and friends have asked me what happened to it, and I am definitely the pot calling the kettle black as I preach consistency to our agents. Going forward, I will send it out again monthly.
