This morning, Ebby Associate John C. Weber of the Hickman + Weber Group served on a top agent panel discussion, What Do Agents Value in a Brokerage Firm Today? , at the 2009 REAL Trends Innovation Conference. John cited reputation, education and training as the reasons he chose Ebby Halliday and said he remains with the company for those same reasons as well as the support at both the office and corporate level.
We have a dynamic office environment I love the ability to share knowledge and even to gain business from being in our office. In fact, that s how I got my very first lead when I started in the business one of our top producers at the time had both sides of a transaction and approached me in the office to represent the buyer. I did and that lead actually produced two additional transactions via referrals.
He also stated that even in this different market, the Hickman + Weber Group is on track to have their best year ever by going back to basics, making a solid business plan and following through with that plan.
Held at the beautiful Four Seasons Resort & Club in Las Colinas, the conference was attended by broker/owners, CEOs, presidents, COOs, senior managers, marketing directors and technology directors from the leading residential real estate firms, association executives, senior managers of the national real estate franchise firms, relocation companies and referral networks and mortgage and title companies.
