Working at Lakeland Realty Of Iowa is not like most real estate offices. We believe that you will find the differences refreshing and rewarding.
Traditional real estate brokers recruit agents to generate listings and sales. They recruit experienced agents from other brokers, and new agents from the general public and real estate schools. The experienced agents bring with them a network of repeat and referral business, while the new agents bring a fresh "sphere of influence." This means their contact with friends, relatives, and acquaintances could bring in more business. They also hopefully bring enthusiasm and a willingness to prospect for sellers and buyers. The bottom line is that traditional brokers rely heavily on their agents to drive business in the door.
Lakeland Realty Of Iowa takes a different approach to attracting business. Our Sell-And-Save Marketing Program generates lots of interest, and leads to plenty of opportunities to work with buyers and sellers. The broker/owner handles the advertising and marketing, allowing our associates to concentrate on servicing our clients, instead of spending most of their time prospecting for business!
By offering an excellent marketing program, coupled with lower commissions, we attract many sellers. And believe me, they appreciate the differences! Your relationships with clients will be enjoyable for all concerned. An added benefit is not having to spend time justifying high fees, which is the number one complaint sellers have regarding real estate sales.
Sales associates with Lakeland Realty Of Iowa make less per closing than traditional agents; however, as is the case with other low-fee brokerages, they stand to close more sales than traditional agents. The bottomline is that Lakeland Realty Of Iowa sales associates have the potential to make more per year than traditional agents!
There are other very important differences between Lakeland Realty Of Iowa and traditional brokerages. When you work in an environment where you have plenty of business to go around, the relationships between you and fellow sales associates become less competitive and more cooperative. A "TEAM" environment develops, where Together-Everyone-Achieves-More! This positive team concept produces better overall service to our buying and selling clients. A busy, fast-moving and exciting career awaits you at Lakeland Realty Of Iowa!
Yes, Lakeland Realty Of Iowa associates are very busy! Not doing "busy-work," but actually working with buyers and sellers. Our unique marketing program generates many times more leads than most other offices. The average Lakeland Realty Of Iowa associate can do as much business as several traditional agents. By relying on the concept and not the agents to attract business, we don't have to fill lots of desks with agents. You'll be surrounded by great producers, and you'll most likely become one yourself!
Becoming a sales associate with Lakeland Realty Of Iowa is a full-time commitment. Your clients expect and deserve the highest level of service, and you can only provide this if you make real estate sales your full-time career. You wouldn't hire a part-time lawyer to defend you in court, or a part-time doctor to perform surgery, so why would you expect anyone to hire a part-time real estate agent to sell one of their largest investments? The good news is, at Lakeland Realty Of Iowa, you will receive the training you need, and improve your skills quickly enough, to become successful and make real estate sales your full-time career!
Working in a fast-paced office is not for everyone. Some agents prefer to close just a few sales each year, make a little money, and not work too hard. These agents would not be happy at Lakeland Realty Of Iowa. The traditional office fits them best. Our business is fast-paced, exciting, and demanding....where would you rather be?
