Best tip for dealing with difficult customers: Listen to their concerns, then address them directly and honestly. A difficult customer is an opportunity to create a stronger bond and convert them by exceeding their expectations.
What are the top two fundamentals that you feel are essential to your company’s success?
First, you must listen and learn every day. It’s also important to conduct yourself with integrity and honor every commitment you make to your valued clients and team members.
What strategies do you utilize to stand out to clients and achieve customer loyalty?
The key is to be extremely responsive and communicate positive messages so that your client is never left in the dark. A true report card for an organization is the long-term loyalty of clientele. Those who build that rapport will enjoy long-term success. Consumers need agents to guide them through the almost limitless sources of information they’re exposed to.
How has your company evolved over the years?
RealtyONEGroup started with company-owned offices in Las Vegas, Phoenix and Southern California. Today, we benefit from a dual-distribution network with company-owned and franchised locations.

We’ve also been featured in the INC. 500/5000 as one of the fastest-growing companies in America for seven consecutive years.
Where does the greatest opportunity for increased business lie?
For us, the biggest opportunity lies in the growth of our franchise company and its expansion into all 50 states.

We continue to make investments in our infrastructure to propel our growth, our associates and our franchisees.
