OUR PURPOSE The world of real estate has changed dramatically for consumers, real estate professionals and brokerages. New technology has changed the way properties are marketed and how buyers find information and make decisions. The life of the agent has become more complex and the demands on your time have increased. Most agents did not get into the business to do administrative work or technical work. They got into real estate to help people realize the American Dream of Home Ownership and to make a good living. Most agents are highly relational and love people. But few excel at prospecting and administrative work. We understand these changes and challenges. That is why we have transformed our company to help our agents build effective businesses in the new world of real estate. Yes, change presents opportunity and our agents are taking advantage! This did not happen by accident. Best practices, innovative technology, and smart business habits have resulted in higher net profit for our agents. At the same time, we work hard to maintain a family culture. Our associates, employees, and partners are our business family. We live, work, and play together every day. We are blessed to have very strong local brokers and they would be happy to share more details and discuss your specific situation. Now may be the right time to make your move. We would be honored to have you on our team!

â€œHelping our associates succeed is the fundamental purpose of our company. We work hard every day to build successful and rewarding real estate careers.â€?
Success starts with strategy.
STRATEGY AND BUSINESS PLANNING Advanced Agent Business System Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties developed the Advanced Agent Business System to help agents work smarter instead of just harder. We researched “best practices” from real estate and other relevant industries to create a better model that helps our associates have the best chance to achieve their goals. Surveys prove that most real estate agents do not really have a strategy and plan. And most who do have a business plan only focus on how much they want to sell or how much commission they want to earn. Our Advanced Agent Business System focuses on “HOW” you can achieve your goals. This approach is very comprehensive and helps you develop your business and personal goals so you can build a great career and also have life balance! Every year, our Coaching & Training teams host a series of workshops to help agents strart putting together the key elements of their plan. Our local brokers meet each quarter with agents to track their progress and offer suggestions and support. Maybe it is time for you to work smarter instead of just harder!

LEAD GENERATION AND MANAGEMENT Let your system work for you so you can sell real estate. We developed our Advanced Database Marketing System to help agents be more organized and consistent with lead generation. This approach is part of our overall Advanced Agent Business System strategy and plan. Our systems and tools are optimized to support this powerful system. First, we help you identify your target market segments. Then, we help you organize the right content that is most effective for that audience. Next, we recommend different delivery mediums to give you the best chance of making a connection and generating leads. Finally, we help you organize and leverage your databases so you have no missed opportunities. The key to making money in real estate is consistently keeping your prospecting pipeline full with qualified leads. We recommend a multi-channel marketing model with leads coming from a variety of sources. Our lead management systems allow you to automate where it makes sense and be more personal where it is right for your business. Lead generation and lead management is one of the critical success factors for your business. Maybe it is time for a better approach.
