Why RE/MAX Legacy in Rocky Point


 That's powerful stuff, especially these days. Here are just a few particulars:

• In unaided awareness, 34% of the consumers mentioned RE/MAX as "top of mind." That number easily beat Century 21 (25%), was triple Coldwell Banker (11%) and was 10 times better than Prudential (4%) and Keller Williams (3%). Overall, 95% of the survey participants were aware of the RE/MAX name. Not to single anyone out, but less than 50% of the consumers even knew Keller Williams existed.

• Similarly, 30% of the consumers recalled seeing or hearing a RE/MAX ad recently, a figure triple that of Century 21 (12%), six times greater than Coldwell Banker (5%), 15 times greater than Prudential (2%) and 30 times greater than Keller Williams (1%).

• And how does that translate into business for agents? When asked what brand they would most likely consider if buying or selling in the next two years, 28% of the consumers chose RE/MAX. Only Coldwell Banker and Century 21 scored in double digits, and the RE/MAX figure nearly quadrupled the results of Prudential and Keller Williams.

There is plenty more gold within this study (RE/MAX is the brand consumers would most likely recommend to a friend or relative, for instance, and "company image" is the leading reason sellers choose a RE/MAX agent), and our creative team will be developing materials for you to use.

These tools will help you drive home the fact that RE/MAX continues to be the best option for the industry's most capable agents. That has never really changed, but many of us, from Headquarters to regions to local Broker/Owners, haven't been communicating it as directly and forcefully as we should have been.

That changes right now. We are the No. 1 brand in real estate. And we will be saying so. Loudly and very clearly.


Coming Up

To those of you who attended the Broker Owner conference this week, I hope you enjoyed yourselves and got a lot out of the experience. It's always good to get together and share ideas, and this year's event was one of the best ever. Thanks for coming. For those unable to attend, I hope to see you at R4 in Las Vegas next March.

Final Thought

I can't overstate the value of the Competitive Intelligence website we announced on Monday. You'll see more details in tomorrow's Broker/Owner Weekly email, so be sure to take a look. The site aggregates information from a wide variety of your competitors. It can take your edge in recruiting and retention to a whole new level.

Why Choose RE/MAX Legacy in Rocky Point Mexico?

The selling process in Rocky Point Mexico

SERVICE WITH INTEGRITY

Our number one goal has always been service with integrity which in this market has been in a sense our saving grace. We will give you the honesty you deserve, a perspective built from not only a professional mindset but also backed with years of experience. At RE/MAX we understand this market demands excellent service with great communication, outstanding exposure and an understanding that everyday we need to look for ways to change for the better.

Communication -

We have set a standard as a company to communicate as much as needed to meet the needs of our clients. At RE/MAX we communicate once every two weeks with our sellers updating them on current activity, what we as a company are doing and what the professionional is doing to go the extra mile.

Outstanding exposure -

We understand the need to get outside the box and promote in a way that get results for you. As the market shifts we continue to be reminded that we have to focus our efforts on the activities that produce. The internet plays a huge role and with our site www.ourrockypointrealtor.com we continue to see great success generating leads on a daily basis. Sure a lot of sites can be found but will the client stay. Our number one goal is user friendly and number two goal is Search Engine Optimization. This combined with our immediate response time to leads not generic but personal  shows we are committed and in the game. Although we are generating leads we can not and will not ignore the fact that we need to be ready like the client walking in the door. We provide training on a weekly bases which has added greatly to our ability to serve our valued buyers. This combined with our agents being full time in Rocky Point definately seperates us from the masses.

Looking for Change -

At RE/MAX we promote and believe like the book "How to Win Friends and Influence people" some standards for excellent service will always remain from integrity and honestly to consistent follow up. On the other side we also value the fact that what worked yesterday will not be sufficient for today. Who moved my cheese is a great book that often is seen in our office. The idea is we need to keep looking for better ways to promote you and why RE/MAX.
