New State-of-the-Art Office in Mission Viejo – Now Open
The current downward cycle in the housing market, complicated by tightened lending standards, distressed properties, and shadow inventories in all price ranges, has created many new challenges with un-met solutions for home buyers and sellers. This has positioned First Team Real Estate and its Estates division, First Team Estates®, to grow its operations by providing new and real-time solutions supported by technology to meet the evolving consumer needs.
During 2010, the company expanded by 8 branches beyond Orange County, CA into several new markets, and merged four smaller branches into two high-visibility locations.
In early January, First Team Real Estate proudly announced the grand opening of its brand new state of the art office in Mission Viejo. The office is led by branch manager Larry Tait.
Exquisite attention to detail…
Upon walking into the office, agents and clients are greeted by two sparkling waterfalls against glass tile. The walls are adorned with custom metallic paint and the office features three glass encased conference rooms.
“The new office is modeled after our premier Newport Beach office and it is absolutely beautiful,” said Tait. “It is an office where our agents will be proud to work. It has several visual elements, including modern water features, custom metallic paint and glass encased conference rooms, which create great energy and a positive work atmosphere.”
Another great feature of the office is the 1,100 square foot conference and training room. The room will be the location for on-site agent trainings as well as place where community groups can gather for special events. The new Mission Viejo office is equipped with the latest technology, including five flat screen monitors for exceptional community and property presentations.
Growing in Market Share…
Even in the midst of economic hardship, First Team Real Estate has continued to grow their sales, their facilities and their teams. They are the largest non-franchised brokerage in Southern California, founded in OC in 1976 and still family owned and operated.
“First Team Real Estate has sold more homes in Orange County than any other brokerage in the last 10 years,” said Tait. “The new office will allow us to keep that momentum going and better serve our South Orange County clients. It will also allow us to continue to serve our agents with the most up to date trainings, marketing and resources.”
First Team Real Estate is headquartered in Costa Mesa. Since 1976 the company has been a leader in luxury, residential and commercial real estate and offers services in title, escrow and mortgage operations. The company has over 60 locations and 2,000 employees and agents.
