The Realty Executives Story: 50 Years of Real Estate Excellence
In 1965, a real estate professional named Dale Rector was about to transform the real estate industry. The concept, designed to provide the maximum benefit to the most productive, experienced and effective real estate agents, birthed the first ever 100% commission real estate company – Realty Executives.
Revolutionary thinking is what made Realty Executives different from the competition in 1965, and continues to make us different today. Sophisticated technology platforms, relevant training and world-class brand recognition awards and attracts the best agents in the real estate industry to become "Executives". Our culture frees agents to focus on what matters most – providing the best service to clients in any market.
Our progress in today's real estate market puts the consumer experience first. Well-informed, steeped in technology and always on the go, consumers start their real estate searches online over 90% of the time, with 68% of home shoppers utilizing mobile applications throughout their research. It comes as no surprise – over the past 4 years, real estate related searches on Google have grown by 253%.
Realty Executives embraces these changes, placing technology, marketing and training initiatives first so that agents and brokers throughout our expansive network can meet the needs of clients today and tomorrow.
Within a short time, we knew how to prepare our home so it would show at its best both in-person and online. Our Realty Executives agent notified her enormous network about the listing, giving our home great exposure. The online virtual tour was key for out-of-town buyers (one of whom bought our home).
