Are You A Benchmark Agent?
It's so easy to fall for the endless promises of free training, full support and "national recognition" that so many companies promise. Cashing in on that promise, however, isn't always so easy.
Our team has roots in some of the largest real estate systems in the world, and we've even been offered opportunities to franchise those systems. We declined.
Real estate can seem like a lonely, cold world full of rejection and roadblocks. The winners in this industry don't look to a "name" to save the day, they choose to forge their own path and create a name for themselves. We're along for the ride, and take pride in not only offering 100% TRUE hands-on broker support, but also a diverse online library (that's still growing) of everything from marketing ideas and tips, to operations and procedures. We have a clear vision, and it isn't necessarily to be the biggest in the eyes of the world, but rather to be the best in the eyes of our clients.
Our culture is focused on honesty, integrity, ethics and growth; not only for our clients, but also ourselves. We are here to serve a bigger purpose - we are here to change lives, and have fun doing it.
If this sounds like the culture that you'd like to participate in and grow with, then welcome home.
We are currently seeking real estate professionals throughout Southern California, as well as brokers looking to license a system in their respective area.

The rest of your paycheck is yours! That's it! No games, no gimmicks.
Our broker loves two things in particular: real estate and coffee. Which is probably why we don't do stuffy meetings with 20 people in a room, when it's so much better to sit down one-on-one, over a cup of coffee, and give you the support you need; whether it takes 10 minutes, an hour, or all day. Not a fan of getting out? Don't worry, we have phones - and we actually answer them.
In line with our philosophy on support, training isn't a room full of stuffy suits. We offer one-on-one training, as well as an expanding online archive of training videos that you can watch, in your pajamas on a Saturday morning. (We don't judge.)
You can't pause an office meeting, but you can definitely pause our videos.
