While the ‘broker shop’ would have us believe working from franchise hubs is the best way to get great results, satellite offices also offer amazing opportunities. Where should we be buying office space - and how can moving to a satellite office impact our company’s culture? Can operating from a secondary location allow us to do more within our communities?
On this episode, founder of the Hermes Realty Group in Atlanta, Matt Hermes shares the benefits of satellite offices.
Takeaways + Tactics
Buy offices in local hotspots with lots of visibility. This makes it more likely for you to get walk-in customers from within the local market.
Use a smaller space to entrench a stronger culture. By having a smaller space and team, we’re able to engage with agents and build a better team dynamic.
Take advantage of the autonomy satellite offices provide. Having autonomy means we can host more events that strengthen our ties to the community.
On this episode, we discussed how satellite offices can improve our relationships with community members in our local markets. We also shared insights on how hosting community-specific charity events and outreach programs is important for the area’s upliftment- and how it can bring our businesses recognition.
We also discussed:
- How to give back to the community without spending money
- How outreach and charity improves our teams’ culture
- How to get recognition for giving back, without it looking like a business strategy
