Sometimes people wonder, "Why would someone go into the Real Estate business and want to be part of a franchise? Aren't there higher fees than if you just opened a storefront and started doing business?"

The first answer is, "Yes, it costs more to open a RE/MAX brokerage.  But it is well worth it!" And, more importantly, it is well worth it to the buyers and sellers that come to us. We are better able to help them because we are with RE/MAX.

For one thing, think about how franchises work. Some body has a recipe for fried chicken that everyone loves, and he is making more money running his chicken restaurant than any other restaurant around. So he decides to franchise it, and fried chicken restaurants pop up all across the country. And they thrive. They outlast local independent restaurants and make more money. Why? Because the first fried chicken company was doing it right and he taught all the people who bought franchises from him. They got a recipe that was popular and a formula that worked to make money.

In Real Estate it is much more complicated but the basic principle is the same: the original RE/MAX office knew what they were doing. They teach their franchisers how to do a good job doing things the same way. They tweak things throughout the years and communicate the new information to all their franchisers. So every office knows the "best" way to do things. This cuts through much of the confusion a new broker has when they open an independent office.

If you travel you probably see your favorite chain or franchise restaurants and you stop there knowing you will get food cooked just the way you like it. The same way, people who move across country look for a RE/MAX office when they relocate because they know they will be treated professionally by the brokers there.

Is that really worth the money? Does it really work? Yes!! Franchise Times named RE/MAX the top real estate franchise in 2013. RE/MAX was also in the top 20 of all franchises in all industries. That says a lot!

And what does that say for you, the home buyer or seller? It says we know the absolute best way to help you find a new home or sell your old one!  Stop by our office and see!

Everyone knows a Realtor®. Actually, everyone probably knows two or three, maybe even a family member dabbles in real estate. And none of us like to hurt anyone's feelings so deciding who to use to list our home can be a delicate decision. It is, also, a business decision. Your home is possibly the largest purchase you will make and the largest asset you will sell in your lifetime. Doing it correctly can save you money, make you money, and save you time and aggravation. Or it can be one headache after another.

To answer the first question in our headline - why RE/MAX? - that is a question we had to ask when we opened our brokerage. Would we join an established corporate team like RE/MAX or one of the others, or would we be independent. That was an easy question to answer. An independent agent may do a great job but they do that great job without the support that are team like RE/MAX can offer. Nationwide advertising, brand awareness, and a tremendous number of tools provided by RE/MAX make our jobs not only easier but allow us to do them in the most professional manner possible. We don't have to anxiously second guess trends and learn by the sink or swim method when challenges like short sales crop up. Our offices are informed and empowered to work seamlessly with our buyers and sellers using the most up-to-date methods available. So, in order to give our customers the best service possible we joined the RE/MAX team.

Why RE/MAX Flagstaff? Because we are committed and conscientious professionals. Our team is absolutely devoted to making sure you find the house you dreamed of at the price you can afford. Or, that your house sold at a price you are delighted with, in a time frame you needed. Do we believe that we can deliver those goals? Yes. To date, our office is the most productive office in the county. With only 5 sales associates our per agent productivity is $2,139,522 for the year.  And this year is promising to be an amazing year!

So, we understand that the decision to choose a Realtor® is one that has some emotion in the balance but it is also one that will impact many other decisions and have more than a small financial impact. Please consider choosing RE/Max Flagstaff when you buy or sell a home in Flagler County not only because we are your friends and neighbors, but because we will do the best job possible for you. We promise!
