We Salute our Veterans

Today we salute our veterans: Past, present, old, young, those who served in combat and those who have in other ways.

Each and every one of them answered the call to defend freedom at all costs to benefit something larger than themselves; the greater good of the United States of America.

Team Spirit Oct 2014

Each month at Resources Real Estate we acknowledge the efforts of our agents – not only production but also team spirit. We believe that having a culture of working as a team “which in my experience is not the norm, is a culture that helps the seller enormously. We reward both Team Spirit and Perseverance. Some transactions are so stressful and where others would throw their hands up and give up, we know that hanging in there and thinking outside the box and coming up with solutions that will get the client to the finish line is hard. We salute those agents that keep going to make it happen for their clients.

Irene Zitzner is an energetic and successful agent, that always finds the time to help others. She has been a consistent winner of the Team Spirit Award.

RESOURCES REAL ESTATE IS ROARing

Liz Mahon - Design Coordinator

RUMSON, N.J. – What do you call an internet resource system that keeps all the transaction files, marketing and showing feedback all in one place? “At Resources, we fondly call it ROAR, which stands for, Resources Order and Reference. We picked that name out of several suggestions from the agents, but we liked it because of the reference to our lion logo!” stated Carolynn Ozar-Diakon.

Resources is continually known as a leader in cutting-edge marketing and technology. Certainly now with the launch of ROAR’s new online client resource center. This transparent file is available for the client to see 24/7 and takes any potential mystery of the marketing efforts. ROAR updates the client in sales, marketing, technology, real estate current comps, showings and showing feedback; company news, and market trends. Everything and anything pertaining to the file from start to finish is posted in the file for clients to see. From copies of advertising, to website advertising information, updated market analysis to the contract and inspection documents for a purchase.

It was a natural progression from our ongoing position that an educated client is a smarter client. We strongly believe that part of our responsibility is to keep the client updated, and with today’s technology it became a smarter way still to open up our client files directly to the client on the internet. Obviously password protected for privacy, not only is the information posted every time the file is updated in any way. Once it is entered, the system automatically contacts the client to let them know.

Our clients love it. We already had a great reputation for our integrity and this just takes it a step further.  We make it easy and transparent for our clients – even before the system which we tested extensively, our clients never had to wonder what was going on, but now they get an entire overview anytime they want.
