2018 Was A Great Year at Team Kate!
by Real Estate Sales Representative Kate Broddick
I have a lot to be thankful for in 2018. On a personal level, my families health has always been my number one priority. My boys have grown into their own magnificent little personalities and I am thankful each day that they were blessed with compassion, empathy, and sincerity toward others. Ryan and I are surrounded by the love of our families and the loyalty of our friendships. Our lives are enriched each day by the relationships that we have, and for that, we are very grateful.
On a professional level, 2018 was a record breaking year for The Kate Broddick Team. We almost doubled in size, growing from a dynamic team of 8 to a powerhouse team of 14! When the market changed, we changed with it. When everyone doubted, we aspired. And when we were faced with adversity, challenges and road blocks, we created opportunity and reinvented ourselves to stand above the rest.
While Brantford’s real estate market was in a whirlwind of fluster – we lead a path of consistency and results, something that is expected of our team. You see, work ethic, commitment and drive can’t be created by someone else – it has to be created from within. We kept our focus on our clients and how we could improve our service to them, and to our community. I am honored to say for the 4th year in a row, we are once again Brantford’s #1 Real Estate Team and REALTOR®, selling more homes than any other licensed REALTOR® in Brantford!
With a team of our magnitude, we received nation-wide recognition through Cover Stories & magazines which gave us an edge on the competition. Top Agent Magazine ran a 5 page spread on myself and my team, highlighting our savvy marketing platforms and sought after processes to deliver nothing but the very best in client care service. REP magazine featured The Kate Broddick Team as one of the top 75 teams across our great country. We were the only one featured in Brantford! Lastly, we were acknowledged as a social media shark, ranking #1 in Canada and #10 in North America by Property Spark.
The highlight of our marketing this year was our endorsement by HGTV reality star, Scott McGillivray. A day filled with fun and excitement, Scott and I ran an endorsement ad on why to hire “Kate Broddick and her Team,” if living in the Brantford area. This was definitely an opportunity I will never forget.
Throughout it all, we remained loyal to our team and welcomed each new member with open arms. Laura Cranston & Mary Carvalho were added to our fierce administrative side, adding an element of professionalism and depth to our deal administration and social media/website. REALTORS® Lisa Sly & Erin McIntyre joined in the late spring/early summer, with Adam Sly joining in the fall. To end the year on a high note, REALTOR® Stacy Wills slid in to complete the roster. WHAT A TEAM! I am beyond proud of each and every member, and sometimes sit back and watch in absolute awe of the talent and drive that each member brings to the table.
2019 has a lot of surprises yet to unfold, but of course, I can’t let them all out of the hat just yet! That wouldn’t be any fun, now would it?! But I can assure you that you’ll want to keep your eyes out for TKBT, we have a lot in store! But one thing will always remain; our clients and community will always receive nothing but the very best service. Our intentions will always be your best!
To another great year with your support! Cheers, Brantford! Thank you from our real estate family to yours!
