CIR is Different

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

Wow, we really are amazed every day at what a difference it has made for us to work with a company that is so highly aligned with our own personal philosophies.

CIR works like this, the owners believe that whatever they can do to make us better as Real Estate Agents they will try their best to incorporate. Our fees are set at a modest maximum, they don’t receive more fees from us when we have more business, so what is their incentive?

It’s simple, from the early days when Karl Stader started the company, he believed that CIR was about the agents, not him. He infused that culture over the past 30 years with such conviction that now the company simply works that way by default – every single aspect of CIR is focused on providing support for their agents, and this in turn provides support for their clients.

A most stark representation of this was this past week when we took part in an amazing 4 day course on becoming a more effective agent. Four of the 5 CIR Brokers, along with the Professional Development Manager were in and out throughout the four days, and at the end were all present to congratulate each and every one of us (their were over 60 participants, most from CIR).

Again, CIR Realty receives the same amount of fees from us whether we work with 10 people a year or 100, so what is their incentive…. it’s simple, the focus in on the people, and when we focus on people the rest (money) takes care of itself. That is how CIR has grown into a company of over 600 Realtors, and continues to expand.

It feels so good to be a part of a company that is so in line with how we feel as people – and that transfers to all of our work with our clients. Thank you CIR.
