Discover the Benefits of Real Estate Offices

We hear it all the time, “The physical real estate office is dead. You can work from home (or Starbucks, or your car) just as easily.” While that may hold true for a few real estate professionals, we believe that many still crave the office experience, which is why we’ve focused a lot of time and attention on each of our 13 CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty offices to ensure our agents always look forward to and enjoy their experience. Instead of continuing to wax poetic about our amazing offices (like Reston, Montclair, Arlington, and Ashburn), we reached out to those who matter most – our agents – to see what they love about working in a real estate office.

What C21 Redwood Agents are Using to Make 2018 Their Year

By Tara L. Christianson on Aug 14, 2018 9:08:17 AM

As the end of August approaches (already!), it can be tempting to start thinking about 2019 without stopping to appreciate all that you’ve already accomplished in your real estate business in 2018. It also can help you understand which tools, technology, and training you have put into practice, and which can potentially keep helping you into the future, versus those that sounded like a good investment at the time, and never again saw the light of day.

With that in mind, we asked our CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty agents, “What do you think are the top things C21 Redwood offers that you've used to grow and/or maximize your business this year?”

C21 Redwood Gaithersburg agent Anthony Pertesis said, “As an agent new to Maryland Real Estate [Anthony is licensed in NJ and MD], so far I have utilized the following and have found them very helpful in getting accustomed to real estate in Maryland: Help from my office’s EVP & OC, capitalizing on all the aspects of accessRedwood [C21 Redwood's Intranet], and taking advantage of both the in-office classes and online tech training.”
