APRIL BROKERAGE AWARD WINNERS Introducing Brass Lending and more! May 11, 2023 By Dustin McLaughlin Our May Brokerage Meeting was met with a packed house of DOBI agents and staff. It’s always a great opportunity for everyone to connect, share insights, and discuss market trends in the industry. We kicked off the meeting with AJ Sgroi, CEO of our recently launched, in-house mortgage company Brass Lending. AJ drove home the idea that Brass carries the same tradition as DOBI of being a customer service forward business and that he and the loan officers are very much looking forward to earning everyone’s business for the remainder of 2023. Our Broker, Simon Thomas capped the meeting off by announcing the rollout of our new agent training program. “When I got into this business, I had no clue how to do a purchase agreement”. Everyone has to start somewhere but oftentimes you’re left to your own devices, especially in Real Estate. “We need to give new agents the best opportunities. An environment where you’re inspired to succeed”. At DOBI we’ve been working diligently on rolling out a 12-week course that covers lead gen/conversion, title, relationship building, marketing and much more. If you’re a new agent or already established and looking to make a move, feel free to connect with us here! Simon continued to address our agents in the room. “The difference between being good and great is a decision. Write down your goals. Visualize them. You will see more inventory due to the time of year but you’re still going to be working as hard as ever. These tough times will be a blink of an eye.” Please help us congratulate our monthly brokerage winners below: Our Big Wave winner is peer-nominated by agents and staff.
