Bigger Is Not Necessarily Better...
Sometimes in life as in business, smaller, more personal, and more tailored
service is better. Sometimes in business skill, experience and co-operation that exceeds the
norm is preferable to sheer numbers of licensees. Some firms have chosen the route of large rosters of agents. Smaller firms deliver direct engagement by the principal broker in virtually all aspects of the firm's daily operations including oversight of each individual transaction, details that are frequently impossible for the broker in charge to track in a large firm.
Large firms may claim large numbers of transactions by the firm but often
fewer per agent sales. Small firms may prove far more productive by each individual licensee. Many firms offer agency representation in various forms such as single, dual
and/or designated agency. A few select firms offer the alternative to agency in the form of
transaction negotiation providing freedom from vicarious liability and avoidance of the conflicts of interest that can easily arise under agency representation.
If you would like to explore the benefits of a small personal firm where the
principal broker is engaged full time and has been for 46 years and which
offers transaction brokerage then you will want to contact us.
