What does teamwork have to do with you? If you’re an agent wanting to grow your business, and you’re at the end of your rope working, you need help! That comes in the form of an assistant–and can grow from there. As you hire those to work for/with you, you go into management.
From working with dozens of real estate owners and managers, and as my position as a CRB (Certified Real Estate Broker) instructor for twelve years, I’ve had an opportunity to see exactly what makes a company profitable–in the long run.

In addition, with the challenges in the business, we finally get that many minds focused on the same task can accomplish much more than each person working as his own little island. Supporting this trend, strong company cultures have emerged which encourage and reward teamwork instead of solely independent achievement.
