Past KW Star: ‘That Balloon’s Tough Competition’
By Amanda Okker, RE/MAX Editor
Brad Kuhns led the No. 1 team at his former Keller Williams office for seven years, competing against top RE/MAX agents in Florida’s Brevard County.
“It’s tough to compete with that big balloon,” Kuhns says. So when his team felt their existing brokerage model getting “stale,” they decided, “instead of trying to beat RE/MAX, we should join ’em.”
In July, the team of five moved to RE/MAX Elite in Melbourne.
Kuhns says the Keller Williams model focuses more on agent count than production, and that’s tough for highly productive agents to get behind. At RE/MAX, his team is enjoying new energy and the motivation of working alongside other top professionals who are focused on helping people buy and sell homes.
“Now we’re with the No. 1 agents at the No. 1 real estate company,” Kuhns says. “That can’t be oversold.”
Kuhns’ team has been impressed with the leadership, camaraderie and support at their new office, and the many tools and resources available to them.
They’re enjoying the “awesome and easy to use” RE/MAX Design Center, Kuhns says. When it comes to RE/MAX University, he can’t imagine what education or designation isn’t offered (He earned the CDPE soon after joining). Add to that the leads the team received through LeadStreet in their first month, and Kuhns knows they made the right move.
He says they look forward to setting the bar higher than ever through their Short Sale, REO and conventional transaction divisions, and their cause marketing efforts.
“Everything that was promised, and more, is here,” Kuhns says. “Agents who think RE/MAX won’t work for them would be better served by at least talking to someone. I’m so glad I did.”
