Agents generate the business and we created an atmosphere to nurture and support their success.

Managing Broker at Greater Chicago Area real estate company, Charles Rutenberg Realty, offers his tips to promote agent success. Charles Rutenberg Realty is a Chicago Tribune Top 100 Workplace, thanks to the strong support system created by Ray Zabielski.

“My role is to grow the company, give advice and counsel to agents when asked and to find the technology and resources that help agents build their individual businesses," said Ray Zabielski, Managing Broker and Owner at Charles Rutenberg Realty of IL, LLC (CRR). “Agents generate the business, and we created an atmosphere to nurture and support their success.”

In 2013 CRR completed over $445 million in transactions and over the last 10 years has signed over 2,000 agents. With a rich history in the real estate industry, Zabielski shares his tips to maximize agent potential and ensure success:

1.    Work Together: Agents at CRR benefit from a highly supportive atmosphere. Agents prefer working together rather than competing among themselves. “Teamwork is not a natural process at every firm, but it can be essential to one’s success as an agent. CRR agents share information on lenders, inspectors, attorneys, marketing tips, and post to our site to tap into a wide infrastructure of supportive agents,” says Zabielski.

2.    Never Stop Learning: A key to growing as an agent is actively staying up to date on industry changes and education. “CRR agents understand the complexities and challenges of the industry by consulting with each other and management on ways to stay ahead of trends to help grow business,” shared Zabielski. "Plus, all agents have access to our training site,"

3.    Use Technology: According to Zabielski, “Agents who embrace technology are much more likely to succeed. CRR has a great paperless online document system, and we strive to offer the latest tools and technology to all agents, allowing them to better serve their clients.” Technology can help agents maximize their potential and grow.

“I enjoy creating support systems to help our agents grow their business. Every agent is important at CRR and each has the potential to grow and be successful,” concluded Zabielski.
