At First Team, we understand that the business of real estate is cyclical. Where others might see this as a negative, we actually see it as a positive. Our company was founded on the premise of innovation and creative problem solving. We are motivated by the opportunity to solve real estate challenges, and create solutions that others cannot. Our company continually strives to meet customer’s needs by developing unique products and services to handle the challenges of any given market. These products and services are specially designed to empower our clients and help them make informed decisions, thereby leveraging the current market to their maximum advantage.
Moreover, our independent status ensures that we’ll never have to answer to the corporate hierarchy of an impersonal national conglomerate. As a result, our clients always receive personal attention and responsive service from creative, local decision makers. We believe that successful real estate transactions begin with strong personal relationships with our clients. We know that every real estate situation is unique, and that there are no cookie-cutter solutions. The best way for us to provide peerless performance for you is to fully understand and react to your unique real estate needs.
First Team wins market share in any economic climate through innovation and proprietary marketing initiatives and tools such as “The NEW Rules of Real Estate®”, Hot Buys® and Market TrendsSM. We have relationships with Luxury Portfolio InternationalTM, the world’s top luxury destination website, and Realtor.com®, Yahoo!® Real Estate, Trulia®, Zillow® and many more.
