It’s nearly impossible for a broker/owner to effectively manage all of the industry changes that are occurring at breakneck speed.
After all, the vast majority of brokerage firms lack the resources and expertise to implement things like social networking, total market recruiting, merger and acquisition initiatives, franchise refinement and all of the other actions necessary to remain on the cutting edge of profitability.
e-Partner is the premiere company that has been dedicated to broker/owners success for more than a decade. After all, e-Partner was created by an owner, for owners…and, this statement is more than a trite marketing tag line.

And, it is especially difficult for owners to direct the re-invention or re-direction of their companies when the industry is engaged in what appears to be “perfect storm” conditions.

Owners are engaged in the delicate balancing act; walking on the razor’s edge, barefoot.
Slicing into Profit
The razor upon which owners must balance themselves is now slicing so deeply into revenues that profitability is now proving more and more illusive. Today’s Broker/Owners are confronted with an economy that is not rebounding fast enough to enable them to survive.
e-Partner has long held that Broker/Owners are the financial backbone of the real estate industry and that their survival should be one of the top priorities of our industry through 2010.
Our Bleeding Feet
The razor’s edge takes no prisoners and yields no concessions to owners who are struggling to meet their ever increasing general operating expenses. Trapped by the same economic factors faced by other businesses, owners are looking for ways to decrease fixed and personally guaranteed obligations.
e-Partner talks to owners from every brand and those who are independent and the story is generally the same. There are simply too few closing and too much bricks-and-mortar operating expenses. “There is just not enough transaction commission to meet the monthly demands we have,” one broker/owner told us.
Agility, created and sustained, is the first of the Ten Commandments of the New Real Estate Economy.
Although we are not quick on our feet, the razor’s edge is sensitizing us to perils of standing still for too long in one place. Our bloated organization body weight presses down on the sharp stainless steel edge and this slices away large chunks of capital required to sustain retail models.
New principle: the razor’s edge is now an owner’s continuing reality and he/she/all of us will learn to walk on this edge nimbly and quickly or, we will be cut to pieces.

Blogs, blogging, commenting, posting, authoring, YouTube, LinkedIn, FaceBook, MySpace and Twitter; What does the social media explosion mean to the real estate industry and its business models?
More than 100,000,000 people use social media each day! More and more real estate agents are joining the social media explosion. Are brokerage models utilizing social media as a means to capturing consumer loyalty and brand recognition?
How does your real estate company engage social media as a component of its business model and how can social media tools create revenue relationships? These are big questions that need to be answered by Broker/Owners who want to develop and maintain relationships with consumers who are increasingly utilizing interactive online media as a communication and business tool.

Business is transacted in a free-flowing context where real estate professionals network with consumers in conversations that take place in open markets.
These new freedom conversations have become the most powerful means by which owners can build brand power.
The emergence, acceptance and dominance of social media presents the real estate industry its greatest challenge and its greatest opportunities.
Online social media portals such as FaceBook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube and CityBlogUSA are eventually going to shape the way real estate Broker/Owners brand themselves with consumers.
Some of the above mentioned social media solutions generate in excess of 50,000,000 entries per month. This is the new “up desk” for Broker/Owners.
Despite this reality, we still encounter Broker/Owners who are waiting for the stimulous package to resurrect the “good ol’ days” of market mania. This is a self-delusion that if it were not so destructive it would be humorous.
e-Partner is drawing a straight line to the consumer through its inclusion of social media and community networking in its online models.
Indeed, we can deliver hundreds and even thousands of transparent portals to a Broker/Owner, train them and position them in the markets as a consumer-centric brokerage alternative to the stale, pale and outmoded lead generation models that are still mesmerizing too many companies.
