As my family and I celebrated Independence Day, I reflected on how proud I am to be a co owner of an independent real estate firm. Our brokerage, created in 1993 from the two most successful independent real estate firms at the time, has consistently sold more houses in northwest Philadelphia than any other Realtor*, and has grown to sell more houses in Philadelphia than any brokerage without a national franchise*.
Being a wholly locally owned and operated brokerage has its advantages. There is always an Broker-Owner available to our agents and our clients. All of our departments are in house. We have an extensive in house training program, IT and marketing departments, all done in our offices. That offers our agents and our clients convenience and control.
Our agents live in, work in and donate their time to support our community. That means our agents come with firsthand local market knowledge and expertise. Our access to local resources is further increased by our presence in the community. We support, and encourage our agents and clients to support locally owned businesses. I’ve talked about the amazing community spirit you’ll find in northwest Philadelphia, and we are pleased to be a part of that.
Our agents are the reason for our success. My partners and I want to thank them for all of the hard work they put in to satisfy their clients and keep us at the top. They make up our family, and they make us the best.
From our family to yours, we hope you had a safe and happy holiday!
