Bigger isn’t always better…

As you venture into the new world of Real Estate, there are so many different brokerages to consider. With big names like Coldwell Banker and Keller Williams, it sometimes seems like big brand is the best choice when it comes to joining a team. While you may consider the fact that these larger brokerages acquire countless agents, one thing to keep in mind is the quality of your team, and how carefully selected your team members were.


One thing that Windermere always considers is the honesty, reputation, and integrity of each agent joining. Although growing can sometimes indicate success, it sometimes leaves a brokerage spread too thin.


Here at Windermere Homes & Estates, we treat our growth as an opportunity to be more selective. As more and more agents opt to join the team, Windermere is carefully selecting agents who have the drive to succeed, and take Real Estate as serious as the company does.


While Windermere originally started as just a small group of agents, it never forgot its roots as a  boutique style company with family-like values and a true passion for togetherness. Windermere Homes & Estates creates a sense of community throughout each of its offices, displaying a unique vibe and style that is characteristic to that location, and the group of agents who work there. Each office consists of staff that is easily accessible, a broker who is readily available, and two owners who are always eager to have fun while getting to know their agents.


We feel that this key component is one of the biggest reasons why Windermere has had so much success. We treat our agents and staff like family, and in turn, keep happy relationships going year after year. From holiday parties to company events, Windermere has always gone the extra mile to cement its agent relationships and create lasting memories on both a business and a personal level.


For Windermere, it’s always been about quality, not quantity.


We look forward to meeting you and can’t wait to get to know you.
