How long have you been in the real estate industry? Since 2005
How long have you been a Realtor? 5 years
How long as a broker? 3 years
How much time did you spend researching firms before you decided on MSK Realty? I was fairly familiar with the larger local firms, what they offered and how they operated.
Why was an independent company the right choice for you? Wanting personal independence and flexibility, I knew a small firm was the right choice for me. As an independent contractor, the ability to truly be my own boss but still have the support of a broker was important to me.
What are the advantages to working at an independent company? Personal attention, flexibility, cutting edge and I can easily utilize new vendors and technology as needed.
Was there one thing that MSK offered that made the decision easy? I am a real estate investor as well, so I have the ability to accommodate my personal portfolio as well as my clients’ needs.
Is there anything that a larger company could offer that you might be missing? Each company has a different offering with different expectations. For my investment and client needs, a small brokerage is just the right size.
Do you think that you will always remain with a smaller company? As long as I continue to have the level of broker support, independence, etc., I plan on staying with a small brokerage.
