It’s clear there is strong demand from agents keen to create their own success, with our agency team at Image Property soaring by a staggering 540 per cent in just six months.
After launching midway through last year, our unique Supported By Image model has resulted in our team increasing from five to 32 in the space of a few months.
This jump in team members has correspondingly resulted in average sales skyrocketing to more than 70 per month.
The increasing productivity of our team is perhaps not surprising, however, the most valuable part of what has occurred over the past six months is that our growth has come organically via referrals from within our team.
That means a majority of the agents who have joined us have been recommended by an existing agent in the team.
Time for a change
The pandemic meant that most people reconsidered their lives over the past year, with many deciding to make changes.
Our model was perfectly placed to help ambitious sales agents who were looking for the next step in their careers over the past year.
These were professionals who wanted to focus on what they do well – sales – but have a supportive team behind them taking care of the time-consuming admin.
The new agents in our team have not only joined a progressive agency with a model designed for today, not yesterday, but have already experienced significant financial gains.
Of course, that is not their prime focus, because they also are committed to long-term outcomes.
These outcomes include establishing their own brand in the marketplace at the same time as growing a portfolio via our unique rent roll offering, which helps to build passive income and create wealth personally and professionally for them in the years ahead.
The Supported By Image model appeals to like-minded people who want to succeed professionally but also want to belong to a team with a progressive culture.
Our team is full of agents who want to take their business to the next level and are at the stage where they are ready to take that next vital step.
However, they also don’t want to be isolated, so they see significant value in being a part of something bigger than themselves.
Fundamentally, the extraordinary growth that we have experienced over the past six months shows that our model is attractive to a certain type of agent who wants to be responsible for their own success, but not at the expense of being a valued part of a team.
The evolution of franchising
In essence, our innovative model supports agents with a unique commission split and passive income opportunities.
Driven by technology and innovation, Supported by Image is a cloud-based model that gives sales agents one of the key things they’ve always wanted – marketing and building their business under their own brand – while also providing a strong support structure behind the scenes.
Supported by Image rewards the people responsible for growth.
We are proud of the model we have developed, which was created by agents for agents. We understand what a motivated sales agent is looking for and what help they need to grow their business.
Our model offers access to a collaborative community, leading technology, tailored marketing, administrative support and training that will allow the agent to do their job from anywhere – it’s freedom.
Supported by Image also offers passive income opportunities for agents who are building their brand and are looking to create opportunities for the future.
The sharp uptick of agents on our team over recent months is testament to a model that has been developed for modern agents who want to succeed while also being part of a cutting-edge and vibrant team culture.
