What makes Maryland Elite Realtors different?
I spent years working my way up through the real estate ranks. I went from Licensed Assistant, to Buyers Agent, Mentor, Team Leader, Instructor (Licensing and CE’s) and Office Manager. If there was a hat to wear, I wore it! During this time, I saw the industry change a lot! It used to be that we needed the big brokers (for me it was; Coldwell Banker, RE/MAX and Long & Foster) for credibility and to get the exposure for your listings. Not anymore!! I call it the Zillow effect. Zillow and other similar sites have leveled the playing field. You no longer need to work for the biggest brokerage out there to get your listings seen and leads for yourself (do you even get leads from your brokerage?). With the third-party sites a brokerage of one has the same web exposure as a brokerage of 1000. Why then would I or anyone continue to pay these brokerages big fees and splits? I’d rather take that money and invest in my own business, wouldn’t you? Its this idea that set me on my path to open Maryland Elite Realtors and differentiate us from the big brokerages.
Why is it Maryland Elite Realtors?
Being a proud Marylander that was a no brainer! Plus, there is SO much great Maryland swag available for marketing and the flag is just plain cool! In all seriousness, I spent a long time thinking about who I’d want to work with. Who do I want to give a piece of myself to and help them achieve their financial goals? Let’s be real, its me that will be doing most of the giving as Broker, so I need to make sure the recipients are worthy of that. When searching my mental Rolodex, I kept picturing all the top tier professionals I’ve met over the years. These are the people I want to work with the “Elite” Realtors. Not that you must have tons of experience or possibly any to be “Elite” you just need to have the right attitude.
What is an Elite Realtor?
An Elite Realtor is someone who understands that being a Realtor is a privilege! We are not tied to a desk and a time clock. We have a lot more flexibility than most 9-5ers and generally get to do things our way.
