I am not a huge fan of how most real estate teams are structured in the industry. It puts a heavy focus on the team leader, and not the agents on the team.

The Buckeye Realty Team, formerly with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Professional Realty, has joined Central Ohio’s fastest growing independent real estate brokerage, Key Realty. With a special focus on residential real estate in Central Ohio, The Buckeye Realty Team will be utilizing office locations provided by Key Realty in the Worthington, Dublin, Easton and Downtown Columbus locations to better serve their clients. .

The addition of these office locations to meet with clients and conduct closings will allow The Buckeye Realty Team to better serve their clients in Central Ohio area, especially in the north side of Central Ohio where the Dublin Ohio Real Estate market and Westerville Ohio Real Estate market each have already sold over 1,000 homes each in 2017.

The Buckeye Realty Team was founded by Christopher Lotte in 2013. Christopher has been in the real estate industry since 2002 providing Internet Marketing and Lead Generation services for real estate agents both locally and across the nation. He took the skills he acquired while working for other real estate agents and has applied those skills in creating a real estate team that focuses on the agents on the team, not himself.

“I am not a huge fan of how most real estate teams are structured in the industry. It puts a heavy focus on the team leader, and not the agents on the team. So I am always trying to keep the focus on the agents and the team, not myself. I don’t believe in making my money off the backs of other agents,” said Christopher Lotte, the Team Leader of The Buckeye Realty Team. “I am here to connect the agents on my team with potential home buyers and sellers and to provide systems to help the agents on the team provide the best service possible to their clients and sell more homes along the way. In exchange, I make a little extra money for myself, but only a fraction of what other Team Leaders take from their teams. This is very similar to the Key Realty model where they offer some of the best broker splits to the agents in Central Ohio, but still provide great tools for us to better serve our clients. By joining a company with a similar philosophy as me, it has allowed me to put even more money back into my agent’s pockets and allow the agents to provide better service to their clients than they ever have before.”

The Buckeye Realty Team had brought 6 agents over to Key Realty from their previous brokerage, and since moving over, has added 3 more agents to the team that were already with Key Realty. The Buckeye Realty Team has agents that specializes in different parts of Central Ohio, and they were able to fill some of the gaps in coverage with the new additions to the team.

“I am thrilled to finally be able to fill those last few gaps I had in coverage area so that the agents don’t have to drive as far to show homes to their clients,” said Christopher Lotte. “In this seller’s market where homes sometimes go into contract within hours of hitting the MLS, it’s imperative that the agents get out to those homes as soon as possible. Cutting down on drive time is yet another way we are able to better serve our clients.”
