The Loken Group Named # 1 Best Place To Work In Houston
By: Houston Real Estate
The Loken Group, a residential real estate team with Keller Williams, has been on the Best Places to Work list since 2013. This is the second time they've been named #1.
What sets The Loken Group (TLG) apart from other companies in this category? Karina Loken, President of The Loken Group, who manages team recruiting, weighs in.
"Our culture is hands down the best part of TLG. It's what makes the difference between dreading and being excited to go into work," Karina says. "Our team is our family. Period. We support each other personally and professionally. Everyone is valued, and we are intentional about letting them know we appreciate them and their contribution to the team."
The Loken Group offers numerous benefits to their employees, including coaching and in-depth training to help them succeed. They also provide fun perks, like regular parties at the CEO's pool, dubbed the "TLG Oasis," and annual reward trips with spouses when they meet their goals. This year the team went to Cancun on their reward trip, and next year they will be headed to Jamaica.
The team is excited and looking forward to celebrating last week's announcement.
"We're thrilled, and so grateful to our employees for making TLG such a great place to work. We're proud of our team and our culture and it's nice to be recognized for that," said Lance Loken, CEO of The Loken Group. "We're having a party at the TLG Oasis this weekend to celebrate with the team and watch the Astros play!"
