First Team’s Margaret Gruse Voted a Fan Favorite

January 10, 2012

Margaret Gruse may still be in her rookie year, but she is already a favorite among Temecula area home buyers and sellers.   Earlier this month, she was named first runner up in the North County Times and Californian 2011 Readers Choice for favorite local real estate agent, narrowly missing first by just a few votes.

“I feel truly honored to have been nominated and to have received this award,” Gruse said.  “Thank you to everyone who helped me.  I look forward to 2012 and to delivering the highest level of service and value to all of my clients.” 

Using the full complement of First Team resources to launch her career, Gruse studied for her license with the company’s Jumpstart Training Program, then participated in Power Curve, a 12-week program that teaches newly licensed agents how to grow and sustain a profitable business.  First Team’s mentoring program, which enables Gruse to train with top real estate professionals with varied areas of expertise, was a major factor in her decision to work with First Team, she said.  She was also impressed with the company’s unique value proposition which maximizes exposure of sellers’ properties through unmatched advertising and online marketing opportunities.  

Gruse describes herself as a “people person” who genuinely cares about her clients and their situation.

“My philosophy is that being an agent is really about making friends and the rest falls into place,” she said.  “I listen to my clients carefully and help guide them to informed real estate decisions based on their needs and the goal they want to achieve.  It’s all about them and I think that’s what makes clients enjoy working with me.”

 “Margaret tackles every challenge with a smile and is a joy to be around,” said Wendy Whitelaw, business development manager for First Team’s Temecula office.  “Her passion for caring and her positive outlook have been key to her quick success in her new career. I am very proud of Margaret and look forward to seeing her career flourish as she continues to use all the tools and support First Team has to offer.”
