Orson Hill Realty

The other day I was talking to my children. They asked "why does your real estate company only have a couple agents?". It really didn't take me long to think of an answer but I wanted to filter it as to be as kind to my fellow real estate agents as I could. The real answer is that there are a lot of bad agents out there. It is a shame but I'm sorry there are. Orson Hill Realty is very picky on who they allow into the firm. There are some real estate companies out there who's model is to grab agents before they even complete school. How can that make a good real estate company? So they get to say "we are the biggest real estate company in _______". Who cares! How are agents? Do they know what they are doing? Do they know how to market a home? How to do the best for their listing? Probably not!

In real estate the most amount of agents does not equate to the best brokerage. It just means they are able to grab agents from real estate school and convince them to join. This does not make you the best it only makes you the biggest. That might also mean a large amount of sales as well but that does not mean it is the best for the client.

Large real estate companies are taking a pounding in Colorado. There are more and more small companies coming into play every single day. The smaller firms do not charge nearly as much as the bigger firms. Since real estate agents in COlorado are independent brokers and are responsible for paying for their own marketing (including listings)........
