2016 – The Year In Review
By Agent Kate Broddick – Real Estate Sales Representative
And another year bites the dust! It’s hard to believe that another January is upon us and another year behind us. 2016 was a record breaking year for us at Team Kate! We continued to be Brantford’s #1 team, and I was the #1 REALTOR for the second year in a row. This proves that our formula of a strong work ethic, exceptional customer service and above all, a genuine appreciation for our clients, is the foundation for our success. We continuously keep our “family first” approach in the back of our mind, every step of the way.
We are innovators in real estate marketing, setting the bar high amongst our colleagues and peers. We focus entirely on our core goals and values with each client, never looking to the competition as we are aware of what not only sets us a part, but drives our passion. And our clients are happy to tell us exactly that! They know we aren’t afraid to think outside the box and explore every measure to sell their home, or find the home of their dreams.
The support that we’ve gained from our clients and their referrals is the backbone of our business. Without all of you, we wouldn’t be where we are today, and for that, we are forever grateful. Success doesn’t come without the support of a community, which is why we’re so proud to give back to the city that has given us so much.
This year, we were fortunate enough to be able to donate a portion of our sales from each home sold through the Brantford Community Healthcare System Foundation. By reaching our goal of $10,000, we were able to equip 2 paediatric rooms at the Brantford General Hospital.
And it didn’t stop there! We helped to support organizations such as Nova Vita, the SPCA, and Big Brothers-Big Sisters Of Grand Erie by attending charity events and graciously providing monetary donations. Having children of our own drives our passion to support youth organizations within the community. By sponsoring local team sports, we are providing children with the ability to excel in extracurricular activities.
The best compliment I’ve been given, is that our Team exudes positivity and that it’s obvious we love what we do and who we do it with. And it’s true. One of the biggest gains that came out of 2016 is the respect, joy and love we’ve gained for each other. In a career that can be lonely at times, the long hours and late nights were so much more enjoyable and rewarding with the support of our team. We have realized that we are capable as individuals, but a stronger force collectively. We truly love what we do which means we never have to work a day in our life.
It’s hard to imagine topping the year that we just had, but with a greater motivation to stand above the rest and the sky as our limit, we look forward to great things in 2017, with an expanding team of agents and administration to help guide you through the buying and selling process. We can’t wait to work with your family, and make you apart of ours!
All the best to each and every one of you in 2017! To love, laughter and good health!
