While there’s lots of reasons our agents love working at our South Granville office, we’re sharing our top four.
One of the greatest joys of working in real estate is setting your own schedule—and often that means spending your time at a home office. Why bother with traffic jams, when you can enjoy the benefits of home? Well, we have some compelling reasons to leave your beloved nest behind and travel into the office.
Inspired by Real Estate Magazine’s article, 4 reasons why you should work from the office, we’re sharing our top four reasons why it’s worth braving that commute to work at Dexter’s South Granville office.
1) Your Colleagues
Dexter’s agents treat each other like family. Other offices might foster a competitive atmosphere, but in our offices you’re not just enjoying a collegial space—you’re working with people who go out of their way to offer help.
From advice on recent sales pricing to insight into specialty sales (such as leasehold properties), our agents are always ready to help each other out. And with some agents having been in the real estate industry for 30+ years, that’s a wealth of experience and insight at your fingertips.
2) David + Tony
While this pair might technically be counted as two reasons, we’re treating our Granville leaders as a unit. Granville is home to two of three members of Dexter’s management team: President David Peerless and Managing Broker Tony Ioannou—and both these gentlemen not only act like the most helpful, hands-on unit you’ve ever had the pleasure to encounter, they’re determined to keep their doors open to Dexter’s agents. These aren’t absentee owners. They’re in the office nearly every day, ready and willing to help agents at every level achieve their career goals.
Tony leads weekly training classes for Dexter’s agents, especially our newest members, ensuring they’re up to speed on the latest shifts in Vancouver Real Estate and that our agents are supported as they obtain their REALTORⓇ accreditation. He’s there to answer any questions, to manage a crisis, or simply to share a laugh—and being actively involved in selling keeps him sharp on all the goings on in real estate.
David makes his wealth of experience available to each and every Dexter agent. He’s happy to meet with agents for weekly mentoring, to keep his door open as often as possible, and ensure his expertise is available—moreover, he makes an effort to greet everyone and you can rest assured he’ll not only remember your birthday, he’ll remember whether you have kids or a dog, and will ask how they’re doing.
3) Joseph Cu
Dexter is home to a strong support staff at both our offices—honestly, we couldn’t ask for better people to help our agents. But for the purposes of this article, we’re going to shout out to one particular staff member: Joseph Cu.
Every morning (or afternoon, you set your schedule, after all) when you step through Dexter’s door, you’ll likely find yourself greeted by Joseph’s warm smile. He’ll greet you by name, ask how your evening or weekend was, and be ready to load your newest listing. If by chance he’s not at the desk, he’s arranging goodies in the kitchen for the weekly Monday Morning Meeting.
4) A Killer View
When it came to our final item there were a number of contenders: our design team, South Granville’s ideal location, close to any kind of drink or meal your heart desires, but in the end we had to tip our hats to the winner. Our outstanding view.
Sitting on the top (fifth floor) of 2608 Granville Street, our entire office enjoys full walls of windows. In our main bullpen area, agents, staff and visitors enjoy floor-to-ceiling vistas of Downtown Vancouver. And if the weather is in our favor, we can step onto one of three balconies to take in some fresh air along with the view. Our location is so good, we’re even able to host fireworks nights, where everyone attending can enjoy the spectacle without needing to find space on the beaches. Full of light, every office and workstation in our South Granville space enjoys our view—and it sure is a show-stopper!
