With so many business models from which to choose — low fee, 100%, traditional, salaried, virtual — how do real estate brokerage firms attract and retain talent?
RealTrends invited Dava Davin, founder and CEO of Portside Real Estate Group in Maine, to the RealTrends Gathering of Eagles June 26-29 to discuss how she differentiates herself from the local competition to recruit and retain agents.
Dava Davin is the founder and CEO of Portside Real Estate Group, one of the top five real estate companies in Maine, and the only large real estate group in Maine to be woman owned and run. She started Portside in 2012, and in nine years, grew the business from five to 125+ agents and staff. Portside, one of the fastest growing real estate companies in northern New England with seven locations in Maine and New Hampshire.
Portside is also actively involved in the community, having raised over $400,000 for local nonprofits through Portside Foundation 501(c)(3) by hosting events and 1% for Maine. Portside is committed to giving 1% of gross revenue to Maine’s future. Giving back is the underlying driver for the company, attracting agents and consumers that care and believe that a small ripple can cause a huge wave.
At the conference, Dava will talk about how her brokerage attracts talent through messaging and action.
