RE/MAX Capital City — 2010 Strength


Twice each year, Jeff Osborne, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Capital City conducts business meetings with all company agents and staff.  Discussion is wide ranging and mostly forward-looking, but reporting on past performance versus our competition is always worth a couple of slides.  I spend most of my blogging time on discussing market dynamics and commenting on industry-related news reports and specific local market conditions, but these competitive reports deserve some attention — not for myself, but for Jeff and the strongly supportive and productive business environment he has built in this incredible company.  At the RE/MAX Of Texas state convention last week, he was recognized for these accomplishments by being named Broker/Owner Of The Year!   (Applause!)

This is no trivial feat:  RE/MAX has been recognized nationally for brokerage and agent productive (see Pride in RE/MAX … please forgive a little bragging from last summer), so Jeff’s award is truly a “best of the best” prize.  He won’t even think of saying this for himself, so I’m proud to do it for him here.

First, here is a look at Austin-area RE/MAX brokerage offices:

Austin-Area RE/MAX Offices

RE/MAX Capital City (our Austin office, where I work) and RE/MAX Capital City II (in Cedar Park) both appear in the Top 5.  What you don’t see is that RE/MAX Capital City III (Round Rock), just finishing it’s first full calendar year in business, was just 4 transactions behind #5 on that chart.  RE/MAX accounts for individual offices individually, but if our three locations were combined, total production was more than 250% of the second-place office — a superb brokerage in their own right!

How does RE/MAX Capital City stack up against other Austin brokerage companies?  Here’s one view:

Austin Top 10 Companies

That’s a respectable 4th place among our competition, but the next chart shows one of the reasons I am so proud to be part of this organization:

Austin Brokerages By Agent Productivity

Our 62 agents averaged 60% higher productivity than the 2nd place performer in this ranking!  That’s important because the more you practice any skill the better you get at it, the more variations and potential pitfalls you find, and the better you are at knowing or finding solutions.

Being at RE/MAX Capital City, I am surrounded by the best, most experienced, most productive real estate professionals in Austin –  and yes, I make my own contribution to that average, but that’s not the point.  It is just a real joy to be a part of this team.

I represent both buyers and sellers throughout the Austin metropolitan area, which means first-hand market knowledge is brought to bear on serving your needs: -- Seller Representation is a comprehensive process that begins with thorough market analysis and consultation, continues with properly staging the home to achieve the highest price possible in a reasonable time on market, a complete program of marketing and promotion, ongoing updates and communication, closing coordination, and follow-up throughout (and after) the sale. -- Buyer Representation is also full service: shopping, previewing, price and market consultation, contracting, negotiating, coordination of inspections, appraisals, repairs, and closing details, and follow-up beyond the closing of your purchase to ensure your lasting satisfaction. Because the real estate industry is becoming more sophisticated and challenging every day, you need a professional that understands the industry and is positioned to stay ahead of the game. I go the extra mile to help you achieve your goals. That's why I constantly research the market and property values so your home is priced effectively from day one. I also make sure the public knows your home is for sale by using innovative advertising and marketing techniques to attract potential buyers.
