Why I Am A REALTOR® With EXIT Realty Central

Exit Realty Central
EXIT Realty Central

We have all sorts of training on all sorts of topics. We have monthly webinars from EXIT Realty International. The head office arranges a professional in each month’s topic to speak to the whole company. They have been doing that since 2009. It is even cooler that we have access to every one using EXIT‘s online business hub! We have in-house training for more colloquial topics, like what our in-house lender can do to help market our listings, contract training and EXIT tools training.  We have international trainers in town to share their best top producing secrets with EXIT agents.

We have free access to EXIT eListings which creates websites, virtual tours, and fliers. It also creates a text lead capture that I have on my listings’ signs which will send the video tour to the recipient and give me their phone number while they are still watching the video in front of the house.

We have free access to Dotloop which is a digital signing tool and digital file repository. I create all my contracts digitally and print them out with most of it filled out already. It makes quick work of paperwork. We have free access to an amazing CRM called Promoshop. EXIT Promoshop is built off of Sharper Agent. It allows me to follow up with leads over time. Buyers’ timelines are getting longer, if you haven’t noticed. When they first register for my amazing website, they may be 12 months from buying a home. If I am not in front of them for 12 months, I am not able to help them get a home!  Promoshop can take care of most of that for me.

We have “Make It Happen Monday” which gives me some accountability and helps me keep on track for doing money making activities. We have the Power Hour where a hired IT expert teaches us tech, online marketing, how to make marketing print material, fixes our computers, fixes our software, helps us with our cell phones or whatever tech stuff we want to accomplish.

Excellent Exit Culture
Excellent EXIT Culture

We have a great sales meeting where we do affirmations, people share good things that have happened to them, and we learn the latest issues that affect us in our business. And the Friday of the monthly sales meeting, we get together at a local restaurant and just enjoy each other’s company. It is said, you are an average of the top 7 people you hang around.

And my favorite reason why I am at EXIT Realty Central, is how much like a family we feel. I have heard everyone describe their office like that. But I know that if I need help with wording on a contract, the agents will help me instead of wishing me luck. And of course, the agents readily accept my help, when I can help them. The whole EXIT culture is supportive. I don’t see much vicious competitiveness. I see some! But usually, they figure out that they don’t fit the company culture and move on.

I hope this post wasn’t too long to read. It was really easy to write. I hope you can tell the conviction with which I write this. I know that I am in the exact correct place to grow my business and get me on to the next level financially. I haven’t even begun to say what EXIT Realty Virginia does for us, or EXIT Realty International. I feel like I’m part of something very big and new!

And we are taught to ALWAYS ask for the order! For instance, if you are considering researching real estate offices to join in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, or Norfolk, please call me and I will meet with you and show you the office! Call me at (757)589-1237. If you have thought, “I wonder if I should be a REALTOR®. I need a job where I make more money when I work harder. I want to start my own business!” you should call me too! For THAT person, you should call (757)589-1237. If you thought “Hey, I have a home to sell and I need someone with experience, trained well and has an excellent support system to help” then THAT person should call (757)589-1237.  Ask for Tom! That’d be me 🙂

The neighborhood is small and quiet. Too small to have a park, however there is a beautiful neighborhood lake. Homes, here, are on the lake (Waterfront!) There is a very picturesque series of white-fenced sidewalks that circle the lake. It is definitely a pleasant walk all the way around! Nearby. Mount Trashmore Park is on 165 acres! You can burn off a couple of extra calories walking up and down the “Mountain”. Or if flatland is more your style, you can do laps around Lake Trashmore. The Lake Trail, as it is called, is a 1.5 mile trek. The Perimeter Trail goes around most of the park and is 2.2 miles. People often walk, jog, run, bike, skateboard, scoot and hover board around the trails. They are flat, so strollers are an option. Along the trails are outdoor fitness stations! Dogs are welcome!
