The good news about being a (Property Matters!) Real Estate Agent
At Property Matters, we are deeply invested in our people and in the ethos of the company. For that reason, we love when our day-to-day experience matches the industry research on a career as a real estate agent.
We thought we would talk you through some of the ways our philosophy and approach reflects positive trends in the industry, not to toot our own horn, but to show that there is method to our madness!
- Local Experts Excel
We’ve built our operation on the premise that our local knowledge and commitment to the area sets us apart from other companies. The numbers show that agents who establish a network of local connections and take the time to get to know the ins and outs of their area far outperform those who fail to do so.
- Staying Current Pays
Agents who stay up-to-date on industry trends and best practices earn more than twice the income of agents who are failing in this area. We take pride in staying current and helping our agents to do what it takes to stay ahead of the pack.
- Agents are Optimistic
According to recent studies, more than 80% of real estate agents are optimistic about the future. We do everything we can to facilitate a culture of optimism here at Property Matters, fostered by a commitment to our area, our agents, and our mission.
- Satisfaction is High
Statistically, 79% of agents are satisfied with their jobs and more than 90% of brokers are happy at work. These numbers look impressive when compared to the US national average of 51%, and we like to think we exceed even the impressive industry figures. We really do love what we do!
- Earnings are Up
Those who love what they do see a major increase in their earnings. While we are driven by our values and our mission, we recognize that gainful employment is essential for agents with families and other financial responsibilities. We are glad to say that more than 59% of real estate agents indicate they earned more in 2017 than 2016, and we are on track for another improvement in 2018.
