What is a POWER AGENT®?
In essence, a real estate professional who personifies the culture and commitment of serving, not selling. Of coaching, not closing. Of giving more than taking. A POWER AGENT® is part of a wide network of like-minded professionals who want to take their businesses to their personal NEXT LEVEL® by bringing their best selves, skills, mindsets, and potential to the communities they serve. Always kind, fair, considerate, and compassionate.
The POWER AGENT® logo and title sets us apart from our competitors. Just as a consumer might choose a CPA over an accountant because those credentials represent a higher level of training, skills, and service – the same is true for us as a Power Agent®. It showcases our commitment and investment into offering next level service to our clients.
A POWER AGENT® is a member of an exclusive program of dedicated professionals (less than 1% of agents across North America) committed to helping buyers and sellers get to their next level in life.
Together we’re better. We come together each week to help one another problem-solve, skill-build, and grow as real estate pros and as people on our coaching calls and in our webinar training. In our Facebook Group, we support each other, care about each other, and work together to overcome the obstacles and celebrate the wins.
Our POWER AGENT® Community is grounded in professionalism and curated with kindness. You’ll find individuals from all over North America who are happy to network, share referrals, ideas, insights, strategies, and support. It’s a safe space to work through questions and challenges and deliver virtual high-fives when goals are hit, barriers broken, and breakdowns become breakthroughs.
‘POWER AGENT’ Code of Ethics
Article 1– Integrity
In the first published Webster Dictionary of 1828,one of the definitions of Integrity read:
“The entire, unimpaired state of anything, particularly of the mind; moral soundness or purity; incorruptness; uprightness; honesty. Integrity comprehends the whole moral character but has a special reference to uprightness in mutual dealings, transfers of property, and agencies for others.”
In other words, our industry was part of the original definition of Integrity. It’s incumbent upon POWER AGENTS® to always bring that to our profession.
Integrity is also defined as always keeping your word. If a POWER AGENT® should make a mistake, they will take ownership in the error and quickly do what they can to make amends.
Article 2 – Representation
