Core Values

Boss Up

You are in charge of your success. Believe in your power. Master your craft. Take risks. Think like an owner. Perform like you’ve never lost. You are an asset, not an expense. Today is your opportunity to build the tomorrow you want.

Core Values

Create Value

You owe it to yourself to become everything you’ve ever dreamed of being. When you discover what separates you from the pack, your potential is endless – both personally and professionally. Hold yourself accountable to your own goals. The result? Endless opportunity to bring value to your clients that is uniquely yours.

Core Values

Come Together

Compliment others. Magnify their strengths. Respect and trust one another. Extend grace when it’s needed. Lift others up. Celebrate the wins and carry one another in the losses. There is strength in numbers.

Core Values

Be Humble

Be proud but not arrogant. Be humble in your confidence, yet courageous in your character. There is no substitute for hard work. Always stay hungry.

Core Values

Client Above All

Lose yourself in the service of others. When the client comes first, the client will last. Building a good client experience does not happen by accident, it happens by design. Remember, no matter how good your feedback is, you always start over with the next client. If serving is below you, leadership is beyond you.

Monthly Brokerage Awards

Top Dog

Top Dog

Top Dog is a reference between our CEO, Simon Thomas, and his previous mentor. After the closing of Simon’s first real estate transaction, the statue was pulled from the sold (abandoned) property and “awarded” to him. Taped to the side was a message, “Employee of the Month.” For the sake of tradition, Top Dog, is officially awarded on a monthly basis to the agent with the highest sales volume.
