Introducing Nest Realty Group.
What are we doing differently?
Everything and nothing.
This is a new direction for me. Since the start of my career as a Realtor, I have always been narrowly focused on my clients and their needs, but I have always also, by necessity been focused on myself – my career, brand, success. This move represents a monumental shift in philosophy, one of collective responsibility, goals and values. I hope I’m ready.
Firmly believing that the Agent is the brand consumers trust, this is a Realtor-Centric brand. We have shared beliefs, values and goals but recognize that the value provided to customers and clients rests firmly with the quality and value offering of the individual Realtor.
No Dual Agency. To my knowledge, we are the only real estate brokerage in the Charlottesville area stating definitively and publicly “No Dual Agency.”
The Status Quo, in the form of the established political “leaders” refuses to eliminate Single Agent Dual agency, so we are choosing to lead by example. We believe that this is something the consumers want and need.
Q: Dual Agency – Who Benefits?
A: The Realtor.
Real Estate Consulting – hourly fees, fee-for-service, flat fees. Everything is negotiable. We recognize that today’s consumer is far more qualified, educated, market aware and knowledgeable than the consumer of the previous decade. The internet has changed everything; we embrace this rather than try to put the rabbit back in the hat.
Accountability to you, the consumer/client/public and to each other.
Our brand is the collective “us” – we intend to push each other, help each other and make each other and the brand the best in the market.
Brokerage-wide, we intend to do things better, or as we and consumers think, the way things should be done. Look at the website, my search page,
Who am I? I’m Jim Duncan and we’re the Nest Real Estate Group and I intend to change the world.
