Here at Bellwether, we set out to change the way  Real Estate brokerages interact with the licensed agents that work there.   Traditionally,  licensees are 1099 independent contractors, and for the most part,  agents create and execute their own business planning and marketing.  Often there is little collaboration between the firm, and the independent agent, which causes a lack of continuity and culture of the company.

Agents generally have free range when  marketing and interacting with home owners and buyers, with the exception of what's required with regard to licensing laws (RCW 18.85)

At Bellwether, we have embraced a team model which promotes individual personal growth, and a consistent experience for our clients.   Team models utilize the best of what each individual has to offer, and develop systems that support all of the clients real estate needs.  This system also exposes each team member to all aspects of real estate services, including comprehension of both Buyer and Seller needs. 

Each team leader is responsible for recognizing each team members strengths  and weaknesses, and providing the education and support necessary to elevate each person on the team.  Not only does each member take part in creating the processes, but also ensures they are exposed to all aspects of a real estate transaction.   Lastly, the cohesion of the team helps better the relationship with the client in that every client knows there is a team of agents supporting their best interests.

This model suggests significant change from the "stand alone, and forge my own path" model that has been a mantra of the baby boomer era.  It also resonates with millennials that make up a huge percentage of today work force.
