Consumers deserve better value for the service fees they pay Real Estate Brokerages and Agents deserve much better value for their Brokerage splits.
The industry is now flooded with licensees and consumers are having difficulty sorting through 45,000+ TREB members to find the one who is just right for them.
Many Realtors are now getting painted with the same brush and the Brokerage business is quickly becoming a race to the bottom through fee reductions for basic commodity services.
While the masses may embrace this direction there will always be a significant Buyer and Seller market segment that wants and expects more. They recognize that the very best results are attained through solid representation, sound counsel and Agent integrity. Many high service Agents acknowledge that as our industry sustains significant change our clients’ needs truly should be placed above all else.
It is time to tear up the old 8 X 10 glamour headshots, dispose of the greatly qualified ‘I’m #1’ marketing, and to re-frame the roles Agents can and should be playing for their clients.
There was no evidence of Toronto brokerage leadership in this true client-first, full service vision. Many Toronto Agents and teams understood this, however most Brokerages haven’t.
Brokerages trended towards either big-brand, with generic training and low/no frills offerings, or small-brand with slightly enhanced make-ups and flashy brand affiliates. Both models put agent count and unit numbers ahead of support and were designed to financially work for the brokerage regardless of agent success.
It was simple, things had to change.
Sage carefully studied the industry internationally and saw incredible examples of what Brokerages could provide through judicious hiring practices, support of the right Agents and straightforward commitment.
Sage’s direction was set.
Sage looks to work with Agents who ‘Get it.’ and want to do the best possible job for their clients.
Agents wanting a brokerage that offers a support model that is willing to genuinely work with them, like partners, consider Sage.
Sage provides tangible value for
its portion of the commissions and constantly strives to provide the direction and support necessary for its agents to do more business.
No more just being a number on a balance sheet.
