Long time readers of this blog may notice the new logo at the top — as of Friday, I’ve changed brokerages and gone to RE/MAX Execs in Manhattan Beach, CA. Although I loved my time at South Bay Brokers, Inc., the “boutique” nature of SBBI was that although it was very respected in this area, out of area clients had no idea if I worked for Dewey Cheatham and Howe Real Estate or, as was really the case, a highly respected, top-notch firm. So I thought “Why not have the best of both?” and have chosen to join a nationally and internationally known real estate company that also is extremely well-respected in the South Bay real estate arena.
My new company has offices for real estate sales in Manhattan Beach, CA (where I’ll be based) as well as Redondo Beach, Torrance/South Bay, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Marina Del Rey/Venice, El Segundo, Rancho Palos Verdes including the Miraleste Plaza, the Eastview area of RPV on Western, the Silver Spur office, Palos Verdes Estates in Malaga Cove, and a new office opening in Brentwood — ALL UNDER ONE BROKER AND COMPLETELY COOPERATING WITH EACH OTHER! This means that I’ll have a much wider pool of “pocket” listings available for my Buyers and my Sellers will have a much larger pool of agents helping to bring in Buyers for their homes. It also means national and international exposure for clients that may have the perfect “beach pad” or “hillside retreat” so popular with foreign buyers.
Needless to say, I am very excited to have access to the huge pool of training and marketing resources that RE/MAX has, and I’m also looking forward to meeting lots of new colleagues to network with. I’ve always believed that a successful negotiation requires a collaborative effort to reach a mutually acceptable solution rather than an adversarial one, and having the larger exposure can only be good for me and for my clients. Wish me luck!
