In September, Inman digs deep on real estate teams — what it takes to join or build one, how to optimize a team and even when to consider leaving one. Adding nuance on top of Inman’s weekly Teams Beat email newsletter, this theme month will serve up top insights from the best team leaders across the country.
Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.
It’s always good to know that someone has your back, especially when you’re building a business. Maybe that’s why the idea of a real estate team is so appealing, especially when the market is as challenging as it is right now.
You’re not on your own: There’s built-in leverage and mentoring. Work-life balance is possible because there are others on call when you’re unavailable. For many agents, it’s the ideal setup.
We asked, and you answered: What’s the best part about being on a team? Is it the synergy? The opportunity to learn from and with others? Is it knowing that your clients are always covered when you’re out of pocket? What keeps your team trucking along so successfully? Here’s what you said:
- Support, sharing resources, coverage when needed and camaraderie
- My team was designed as a support system for the team agents. We collaborate and communicate in such a way that we always have each other’s back. It has allowed my team to triple our sales potential without anyone burning out.
- Quality of life
- Leverage off each other’s skills and market knowledge
- The best part of being on a team is the potential for faster growth through mentorship and other team member experiences.
