"This is an incredible honor and quite humbling," said Chris Pollinger, First Team's Sr Vice President for Sales. "As an organization, in the eyes of our employees, we are a company that they find inspiring, fulfilling, and that operates like a family."

Building a business from a handful of real estate agents to the largest in Southern California, First Team Real Estate has always worked to redefine the real estate industry for agents as well as buyers and sellers. According to the recently released Top Workplaces in OC report, one of Southern California's largest employee surveys on workplaces, it is clear First Team Real Estate continues to reach its goals decades after its founding.

The survey, published by the Orange County Register after tens of thousands of private employee surveys across the county, found that First Team Real Estate was among the top workplaces countywide of all businesses surveyed.

"This is an incredible honor and quite humbling," said Chris Pollinger, First Team's Senior Vice President for Sales. "As an organization, in the eyes of our employees, we are a company that they find inspiring, fulfilling, and that operates like a family. Our employees and the culture they create has enabled us to do great things this year and we are ready to continue our progress."

Starting in early summer, the Orange County Register and its survey partner, Top Workplaces, began an in depth process that was open to every employer of any size in the Orange County region. During the survey process, a significant portion of their employees took a voluntary, anonymous survey on the operations of the company and their individual feelings, outlook, and careers. As a result of that research, First Team Real Estate was ranked among the top real estate brokers in the county of hundreds that conduct operations in the county.

"Now being named a Top Workplace in OC after being named by consumers Best in OC for our fourth year is gratifying because it shows that we are strong and trusted internally by our team members and that in turn is reflected by the way our agents are able to serve buyers and sellers," explained Pollinger.

Some of the comments from the survey by First Team employees include: "I feel appreciated and inspired to exceed expectations," and, "My role is challenging and fulfilling... my actions made a difference in the business."
