Special Report: Agent Success Equals Growth Gone Global By D. Michael Burke All of us on Team Michael Burke / Coconut Point are very proud of the work we accomplish every day. We are excited and appreciative of our clients and all the services we can provide to make their lives happy and fulfilled. I’d like to take this time to talk about our broker, Keller Williams Realty. The point is that much of our success stems from the wonderful brokerage we represent, and I think it’s important to share with our readers and clients just how Keller Williams Realty stands out and the benefits you, our clients, receive when you work with our team and Keller Williams’s Realty. Global growth means global representation for clients. Did you know that Keller Williams Realty (KW) is the largest real estate franchise company by agent count in the United States? In recent years, KW has surpassed RE/MAX, Century 21, and most recently, Coldwell Banker. In the past 12 months, KW has experienced global expansion that reaches beyond North America. Expansions include Vietnam, Indonesia, South Africa, the Greater German region (consisting of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland), and Turkey. Did you also know that J.D. Power and Associates recently ranked Keller Williams as the “Highest in Customer Satisfaction” among both home buyers and sellers? KW was ranked #9 on America’s Top 150 Workplaces – the only real estate company on that list! There is a reason for this… Education is key! The other aspect that sets KW apart from other brokerages is the level of training and resources they provide to their agents. Since its founding in 1983, KW has been committed to providing associates with the resources they need to succeed. They understand that their success is based on the success of its agents, and that real estate is a local business, driven by individual agents. In other words, KW stands behind its agents, not in front of them! Through the development of industry-leading technology and world-class training and coaching programs, agents are equipped with the tools they need to grow their businesses and provide you, our client, with exceptional service. Also, through profit sharing, agents experience success as well! Year over year, per-agent units increased by 23%, closed volume was up by 31% and gross commission income rose 28%. Moreover, a record 91% of KW’s offices were profitable for the 2012 year. The company also announced total profit share of $55 million dollars – an increase of 44% over prior year!

What is “Intelligent Pricing”? The Number One Selling Tool we have during inventory-heavy times is an aggressive list price. Although the real estate market in Southwest Florida shows signs of improvement, the area is still showing evidence of buyer-driven times. In addition, buyers are not coming to the area demanding to be in any one community. As common sense would dictate, buyers come to this area to search for the best opportunity with the features and benefits they seek—PRICE is driving factor. Property priced at market value will attract more buyers than a property priced above market value, simply because there’s too much for buyers to view these days.

As the triangle graph illustrates, more buyers purchase their properties at Market Value than above. When your property is priced “intelligently,” it is exposed to a much larger percentage of prospective buyers, which in turn increases your opportunity for a sale.

The Value of Target Marketing Target Marketing is defined as “Identifying a target market after detailed research, and developing specific marketing campaigns focused at it.” (BusinessDictionary.com) In today’s market, it is important to have maximum Return on Investment on every marketing dollar and resource. For Team Michael Burke / Coconut Point, this translates to not just working hard, but working smart. Our Target Marketing campaigns take into consideration demographics (measurable statistics like age and income) as well as psychographics (lifestyle preferences) so that our efforts will reach the appropriate and most receptive audience for your home’s listing. Through Target Marketing, we are able to track results and maximize the impact of all of our marketing efforts. As a result, we boast a 75% “click rate” on our emailed Market Reports versus the National Association of Realtors published Real Estate Industry average of 10%.

Why do you need to be on Both Sunshine MLS and Fort Myers (Rapattoni) MLS? Listing your property on both Sunshine Multiple Listings and Rapattoni Service ensures that your home will be seen by all buyers. Most agents only belong to a single board because of the cost, so exposure is cut as much as 50%. For your home to be properly marketed it should be listed on both MLS Boards. If not, an agent search on Fort Myers MLS will not see your Estero, Bonita Springs, Naples home and vice versa.

The quality of the marketing materials was excellent; we felt our home was well represented and portrayed as favorably as possible.

Thanks for your good work!” Michael Fox – Northbrook, IL – Lighthouse Bay at the Brooks “Michael, Shelly and Justin were great to work with. The whole process was made simple and easy. When our sale did not close exactly on time due to a delay with the buyers lender. Michael gave me a daily update and kept me in the loop instead of wondering what had happened. T he property did close as promised and according to plan. Michael and the group were extremely professional and knowledgeable about our local real estate market. The recommendation for our listing price was very realistic and very near the price we ended settling on. He also made some great referrals in the area to help sell furniture, cars, and shipping. Michael and his staff are some of the most caring people I have ever met.

This is brief, but very much to the point.” Bob Cowgill – Orlando, FL - Cascades at Estero “This is the first time selling a home has actually been easy. Michael and his team were there with full support during the entire process.
