Another week has gone by and huge progress has been made! I must admit that I’ve learned a lot through this incredible process of transforming a vacant medical office building into the beginnings of a luxury Real Estate office. The facilities folks here at Coldwell Banker are just plain amazing. During the demo and construction process, I’m finding that it is inevitable that we will run into obstacles here and there with surprises that come up. What is impressive is that the team not only expects these little surprises/obstacles, but they are prepared with almost immediate remedies and solutions to every situation. Something as simple as a support beam that was discovered and immovable, goes from being an eyesore requiring a complete redesign of our lobby, to a perfectly positioned redesigned modernistic curved reception desk with an inviting walkway to the bullpen and conference rooms. It literally is the mindset with these pros that where there is an obstacle, it can easily become an opportunity to use creativity, collaboration, and plain teamwork to not only resolve the challenge but improve the original design/plan. And this is what happened last week! So along with the beginning of framing some offices upstairs, our lobby has been modified slightly and frankly improved from the previous plans. What I know is that while our move in date is still fluid and subject to many variables, we are making huge progress and the best people are on the job to make this office an incredible showplace once opened!
Lastly, the office and desk count is going to allow us to grow with room for over 100 great Independent Sales Associates! We will have a full compliment of staff and services to provide the support that our agents and clients deserve. The office will be staffed as follows:
-Full time office administrator
-Full time office admin assistant/receptionist
-Full time Marketing Coordinator on site to support and assist agents with their marketing, advertising, farming, design, and more!
-Weekend reception coverage Saturday and Sunday…when real estate sales happen! Few if any of our competitors are staffed on the weekends anymore, yet we believe our clients and agents deserve to have professional reception and assistance on the weekends. Our office will be the busiest in North OC on the weekends!
-Full time Transaction Coordinator
-Full time Branch Manager/coach/leader
-Full time Assistant Manager/coach/leader
-On site full time professional Escrow and Mortgage staff
-2 full time on site mentors
-On call IT support as needed
-Client Concierge Services on demand
As you can see, we are committed to a level of service and support well beyond the average real estate office in the area.
So, not only will we have an amazing facility, but we will be delivering a high touch, high service option right here in North Orange County to those who are looking to grow their business in all price ranges, but especially the high end!
Below is my newest short fun video update. Take a moment to watch it and you’ll see the progress coming along beautifully!
