Treviño joins Side to support the shift of power and increased market demand by top-performing agents for premium brokerage services that empower them.

Side, the only real estate brokerage that exclusively partners with high-performing agents, teams and independent brokerages to transform them into boutique brands and businesses, today announced that Cathy Treviño has joined the company as Managing Broker of Texas. Treviño joins Side to support the shift of power and increased market demand by top-performing agents for premium brokerage services that empower them, as they move away from larger brokerages to build their own boutique brands.

Treviño, a respected real estate industry veteran in Texas, brings over 22 years of experience to her role as managing broker and is dedicated to helping agents grow in their careers. Cathy joins Side from Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices where she was the Houston Area President. As an active member of the real estate community, Treviño serves as a Regional Vice President and Vice-Chair for Risk Reduction for Texas REALTORS®, Chair for Risk Management and Vice-Chair for Houston Association of Realtors (HAR) and a Board Director for National Association of Realtors (NAR).

As Side’s Managing Broker of Texas, Treviño will oversee the expansion of partnerships with the very best agents across the state while supporting agent partners in establishing, growing and developing their own boutique agencies.

“I’m excited to join Side and be a part of a company that is transforming the industry by empowering top agents to truly grow their businesses and unlock their full potential,” said Cathy Treviño, Managing Broker of Texas at Side. “Since launching in Texas, Side has brought many benefits to top performing agents, including seamless technology, a fully-vetted and integrated platform and far more opportunities to build a sustainable asset and legacy while growing their teams and businesses.”

Treviño’s appointment follows Side’s September 2019 expansion into Texas. Side offers the lone star state’s agents a first-of-its-kind premium brokerage platform, which spans across transaction management, property marketing, lead generation, business growth, vendor management and infrastructure solutions.

“With Side’s wide range of offerings across the entire tech stack, top-performing agents can drastically streamline transaction workflows, property marketing and vendor management. With a mobile app that empowers agents to step out of their inboxes, agents can collaborate in teams anytime, anywhere,” added Treviño.

Side is a brokerage led by experienced industry professionals who handle marketing and compliance as well as world-class engineers who develop technology that improves agent productivity and client experience. The company believes that homeownership is a fundamental human right, and Side is on a mission to improve the public good by empowering top agents to provide the best real estate service and results.

Since its launch in 2017, Side has saved agents an average of 62 days per year and Side partners have seen an average 45% year-over-year (“YoY”) growth rate, with some experiencing greater than 120% YoY growth. Side now powers over 500 real estate agents from the industry’s top 100 producing teams and is on track to represent over $8 billion in annual home sales by 2020.
