Brand Name Real Estate Companies

If you came here looking for verification of the success of Shore Realty by the brand name we carry, then you might be disappointed. Shore Realty is not associated with any franchise or chain of realty companies. What this means to you is, you can be sure you do not become part of someone's quota. Brand name real estate companies are components of mega-corporations and they all have quotas, from upper management, right down to the agent you might be talking to.

Each name brand office, manager and agent is assigned with a number of properties they have to keep listed all the time. The agents have quotas on the number of listings they need because the more signs in front of houses, the more the phone rings. To fill their quotas, some agents list anything at any price and say whatever needs tom be said, just to maintain their inventory level. So your house might just be corporate inventory.

Likewise, the franchise managers have quotas on the number of agents they need to have in order to keep the doors open. This lends to the hiring of just about anybody in the hopes of meeting some quota. This results in the big box real estate companies employing a lot of part time agents who look at selling real estate as more of a aspiration than a source of income.

We at Shore Realty don't have quotas because our business is selling houses on the Outer Banks , not making the phone ring. We have an extensive network of web sites which make the phone ring with buyers.

We list houses to sell them.

We spend more money per client on advertising than any big company around.

We have one of the highest sold ratios per agent of any company on the beach.

When you list your house for sale with Shore Realty you become a client, not just another file number!
