Lure Big Fish to Your Brokerage by Realtor®Mag

Learn how one Hawaii-based real estate company is attracting top producers and keeping them happy.

Written by Erica Christoffer From Realtor®Mag

jul15_BB_topTake it from Paul Mayer: Big fish need a lot of room to swim. Several top producers have surfaced at his Hawaii-based brokerage, Elite Pacific Properties, and he gives them the freedom to explore oceans of opportunities to expand their business.

One sales associate in particular, Greg Burns, hosted the Golf Channel’s media crew at one of his listings during the PGA’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions on the island of Maui this year. In exchange, the Golf Channel gave Burns a segment on a show in which he toured Kapalua-area luxury homes.

Elite goes after high-producing agents and gives them a long leash to create the type of connections it takes to sell multimillion-dollar listings, says Mayer, the firm’s managing partner.

Mayer, who owns the largest luxury brokerage in Hawaii, opened up about his management prowess, offering insight on how to retain agents who want to soar.
