John L. Scott Real Estate held their annual convention today. It’s a one day event held at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA. There are classes taught by industry leaders, a trade show and loads of educational resources for Real Estate Professionals. It’s a world class production that made me feel proud of the organization I work for.
This got me thinking: Does it really matter to YOU what brokerage your agent works for?
First, a little information about John L. Scott: The firm has been in business for 84 years. One of the largest regional brokerages in the world, they have over 100 offices and 2,600 agents in Washington, Idaho and Oregon. Most importantly, they are highly respected for their innovative marketing techniques and for providing outstanding education and mentoring of agents. In short, they are a market leader with one of the very best reputations in the business.
Real Estate transactions are complex and each one is unique. Every home and every client have different needs and require a different strategy. Then there are the Lenders, Inspectors, Appraisers, Escrow Agents and Title personnel involved in every transaction. Each must get their jobs done in specific time frames in order to get to closing.
The agent must coordinate the efforts of each for the benefit of the client. Needless to say, things can easily go awry if the process isn’t carefully managed by a talented agent working on your behalf.
THE BEST TEST OF A QUALITY REAL ESTATE AGENT IS A “SEAMLESS” RESULT TO THE PROCESS. In other words, the “chaos” is managed so well that you don’t even know it exists. The only way this can be achieved is by having a team of experts working together for the same goals.
I firmly believe in the “team approach” to Real Estate and my pledge is to provide you with the finest resources throughout the transaction.
First, you will always have access to the best Lenders, Inspectors, Appraisers and Escrow and Title professionals when you work with me. That’s a pledge I make to you directly. I meet with industry leaders in each field regularly and will only work with the ones that are committed to providing excellent experiences for my clients.
Here’s where John L. Scott provides the highest benefit to my clients:
The Managing Broker, Sales Manager and mentors I work with have over 100 years of Real Estate experience combined. Each of them has a vested interest in your successful transaction and will work tirelessly to help us achieve our goals. Their cumulative knowledge and talents directly enhance your client experience on a daily basis.
Most importantly, the core principle that John L. Scott espouses is one I’ve built my personal life and career on. We believe that the more you give, the more you receive. It’s been my personal experience that this is always true and I will always make it the primary focus of Thomas Foy Homes. If we are giving back to our clients, our communities and our families, everything else will take care of itself.

I would love the opportunity to further share how my “team” can help you accomplish your Real Estate goals. Just give me a call!
