My Move to The Maxwell House Group
"Who, in their right mind would open up a brand new brokerage now, in 2011?" asked the naysayers in my life! For the past year, I've been tinkering with the idea of opening up my own brokerage. My clients supported my move and encouraged me tremendously. My family and most of my friends did as well. I worked tirelessly to have the most stellar year in 2010 I've ever had in real estate; I worked leads for my team and pulled together everything that I would need to open up a brand new real estate brokerage here in our beautiful city of Charotte.
Armed with my new business plan in-hand, I met with several broker/owners who had relatively newly established firms to see if what I had planned was everything that I needed to make a strong start. I trusted these agents with whom I met. I wasn't looking to 'move my license' but, to realize the dream of owning a successful real estate brokerage in beautiful Charlotte, NC.
When I realized that I didn't really need to re-invent the wheel--the opportunities were out there to join forces with existing companies, I met with my top choice and fell in love! Lexie Longstreet and Shonn Ross started The Maxwell House Group in Charlotte in 2007. The firm is a very well-respected one, with agents who are known for going the extra mile for their clients. They are THE most progressive, forward-thinking, tech savvy firm in the city and I wanted to be a part of it. Why not join forces with the ones who were the primary competition for my team?!
And, those fabulous signs--the envy of other marketing gurus in the city! My team interviewed the owners to see what they thought and they all were blown away by the incredible support that Savvy offers their agents. With The Maxwell House Group, it's ALL about the agents--helping get their footing on their own specialties, helping them market their listings and for themselves as well as doing everything humanly possible to build their businesses.
The marketing, created by our own, Julie Tambussi, is the envy of the city! We have a 'look' like no other and our marketing goes far beyond simple flyers and brochures. The Maxwell House Group engages their clientelle online and off; working on community projects and participating in community events and volunteering is extremely important to the firm and our agents.
The Maxwell House Group was created with a primary goal of creating a company that caters to true, grassroots client care. The Maxwell House Group is a fresh, forward-thinking real estate firm. We take pride in our knowledge of Charlotte and it’s unique communities. Our firm’s desire to stay ahead of the technology curve sets The Maxwell House Group apart from the competition whether you’re an agent seeking a place to hang your license or a consumer seeking the highest level of customer service possible.
Shonn Ross, Lexie Longstreet & now, myself, are proud to lead such a professional group of brokers and a stellar support staff. I can't tell you how honored I am to work with the wonderful people at The Maxwell House Group. Watching this boutique firm grow exponentially is going to be just 'what dreams are made of' for me!
Here's a little video I did--be patient, the pixilating will stop in about 11 seconds!
