PRLog - Feb. 1, 2013 - FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Keller Williams Plantation experienced explosive growth and changes in 2012. With a new CEO, Eric J. Ubiera, the market center completed a total remodel, held a grand re-opening, and grew by 42 agents in only three months. The office has nearly doubled in number of associate partners and is attracting agents from across the area. No wonder they have the nickname, “The Center of the Universe”.
Center of the Universe
Ubiera attributes his office's education, coaching, proven systems and listing-focused philosophy as some of the key reasons for their tremendous 2012 business growth:
An increase in agents’ commissions earned by 38%.
An increase of 14% in sales, for a total volume sold of $101,740,000.
Total listings taken was 679. The agents' customized client marketing resulted in agents selling 65% of their own listings!
In December 2012, while the local MLS decreased in listings taken by 2.7%, KW Plantation listed 90% more properties than in December 2011, and increased in listing volume by 188% for the same month!
Ubiera also cites the amazing relationships with their highly-engaged elite vendor partners for the success of the office remodel and sold-out Grand Re-Opening event. "Oprah Winfrey says to surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher”. That is why each of KW Partners Plantation’s preferred vendor partners was carefully selected to maximize the customer experience and ensure total satisfaction."
Among them are:
VanDyk Mortgage Florida Branch a Tampa-based firm, is “perfectly aligned with our win-win business model”, says Eric. “Their vision, customer service and commitment to excellence help us keep more deals together and take them to closing more than any other mortgage vendor we've ever worked with.” VanDyk has partnered with over 20 offices in Keller Williams, offering full support onsite to all agent partners to include training and special events.
Supreme Title and Escrow (with attorney Giovanni Nicosia), operating out of Davie and Plantation-based Firm Title Corp. (with Attorney Craig Packer), are both attorney-operated title companies that also partnered up with the Keller Williams Plantation powerhouse. Another non-attorney title company, Preferred Title & Escrow, headed by President Candice Murphy-Suarez is also on this powerful team of professionals.
