RISMEDIA, August 12, 2008-Competing for the attention of prospective home buyers is a constant challenge among real estate companies. The only way to stay ahead of the competition is to align yourself with a company whose priority is to provide you with the products and services needed to attract the attention necessary to remain a successful player in the industry.Lowen Sign has proven to Bruce Powell, facilities and purchasing manager for CBS Homes in Omaha, Nebraska, that it is dedicated to leading Powell and his team to the front of the pack and keeping them there.

“Lowen Sign has its graphic and IT people on hand, allowing for a quicker response time to any problem or question we have,” says Powell. In turn, the company has allowed Powell’s agents to streamline their ordering process from designing their signs to placing the order.

“My agents have the ability to login to their account, place an order and see exactly what they are getting before placing the order,” explains Powell. Restructuring the company has allowed Lowen Sign to provide its clients with the services necessary to be successful in the real estate industry without missing a beat.

Working with Lowen Sign has provided Powell and his agents with numerous benefits that allow the company to stand out over other real estate companies in the area.

“First and foremost, the turnaround time that complements the service that Lowen Sign offers is remarkable,” says Powell. “One of the biggest benefits of working with Lowen Sign is that we get our signs within six to eight days after placing an order. You can’t get that kind of turnaround with local people.”

The speedy turnaround time isn’t the only benefit of working with Lowen Sign, according to Powell-its quality products have given the company an advantage over its competitors as well. What’s more, the company offers more than just signs, allowing agents to be more creative in their marketing campaigns.

“Many of my agents still prefer the traditional yard signs, but the banners are becoming popular as well,” says Powell. The ability to get anything personalized in addition to the durability and the three-year warranty that comes with the signs, shows that Lowen Sign is committed to doing whatever it takes to keep their clients on the minds of prospective home buyers, he says.

With 650 agents on board, Powell knows the importance of a good customer service department that will listen to and respond to his agents’ needs. Powell has worked closely with Todd Warner, business development manager at Lowen Sign, since the very beginning.

“When we were first working out the terms of partnering with Lowen Sign, Todd made a point of traveling to Omaha and sitting down with my agents and asking them what they needed as well as what he could get for them,” says Powell.
Lowen Sign has given CBS Homes the tools it needs to stand out in the local marketplace.

“Lowen Sign has given us great service as well as turnaround times and quality,” says Powell. “When you get quality and service all wrapped up in one package, it is hard to beat.”
