Wilkins Group Meets Benchmark Cap

  • Share

Friends & Fellow Agents,

Hope all is ‘well’ in these strange times. We went from sheltering in place this past spring to the most active summer we've ever seen, and an especially frustrating one for our buyers. Didn't August feel like the new May? And, it's only September! All I can say is hang in there. As my late father, a life-long dairy farmer would say, "make hay while the sun shines." 

congrats, Wilkins Group!

Speaking of making hay... I wanted to give a shout out to Troy Wilkins for meeting his commission cap in record speed. On a 90/10 split, by August, he had already met his $14k annual cap and is now paying only a $250 per/closing transaction fee. After spending time at Legacy Properties SIR and most recently Portside Real Estate Group, Troy and his partner Jourdan Willard, joined Benchmark just about a year ago.

“It feels great to work with a company that really wants their agents to max out their financial potential with excellent support staff around at all times. Benchmark Real Estate was an excellent and easy choice for my partner Jourdan and me to join this year.” - Troy Wilkins

So, be sure to congratulate this kick-ass team next time you do a deal.

 

 

looking ahead - we'll survive & prosper

As we look into an uncertain fall and winter, there are a few things that should give us some reassurance. 
  • As real estate professionals, we are some of the hardest working, most resilient people on the planet! 
  • We've survived recessions and the rise of websites that seek to make us irrelevant.
  • We're able to work from anywhere and have been way ahead of other industries in this area.
While I am confident we will all persevere, these past few months have taught us several things that we must take into 2021.
  • Our success is tied to the health of our local community -  the businesses, the nonprofits, the schools, and the people. As agents, we should align and affiliate with causes and companies that strive to make a difference in our community.  
  • In order to take care of our clients and our community, we have to take care of ourselves. Do royalty and franchise fees to national companies, multiple layers of management, burdensome compliance and training requirements, and rarely used brick and mortar offices really get us more sales or help us take better care of clients? As we look into uncertain times, these questions should be front and center.
 
I welcome the opportunity to chat with you about your business and how we can all ride out this storm together. Sending ‘virtual' hugs and well wishes my friends. Let’s do a deal soon. 

All the best!
