Accelerated Marketing or auctions are quickly becoming a larger part of real estate landscape and clients are seeking solutions as an alternative to the traditional methods of selling and buying real estate. This partnership allows for further differentiation of the Keller Williams solution in a rapid timeline, as well as provide an expanded set of expert tools for the agents.
ARES is a recognized leader in the West Central Florida market conducting accelerated marketing and is growing into other markets around the state and country centered on their proprietary model and technology, the Accelerated Listing Service (ALS)®. Robert Barber, CCIM , President and Karl Moeller, Chief Operating Officer will be on site to assist with introduction of the process and training of agents on the new service.
"The Keller Williams community is comprised of the best agents, but they're also very busy trying to assist all their client’s needs. The implementation of a proven service that will shorten the time a property is on the market and still be delivered in a way that cares for the agent’s interest is at the forefront of this new service. I am excited to bring this to the Orlando market first and love that our agents can continue to differentiate themselves as a part of our team", said Pat Skiffington, Keller Williams Homestead and Classic Realty Broker Owner.
"By partnering with ARES, we hope to contribute substantially to the productivity of our agent teams in a market that is one of the most difficult ever faced by real estate professionals. Beyond the benefit for agent teams, we hope to also contribute to the Orlando community recovery by getting sales done" added Skiffington.
"We are very excited about this partnership and view this as a strategic opportunity for both companies. Keller Williams Homestead and Classic are widely recognized as a top tier real estate brokerage firm in the Orlando market and we couldn’t ask for a better partner. Pat and his teams have a wealth of expertise and even more, are the type of organization that embrace continuous development and seek only the best solutions for their clients," said Robert Barber, CCIM, ARES President.
The kickoff workshop luncheons will be held in both Market Centers in January 2010 (exact dates and times to be announced). Here, all agents will get an introduction into the new offering and learn how they can sell property in 30 days or less for their client’s price.
