Building Your Brand Images Independently from Your Brokerage’s Brand Image:
When it comes to effectively positioning yourself as a luxury real estate professional, your brand image and the reputation you build are incredibly important. And while your brokerage may enjoy a certain type of reputation amongst other professionals, your individual reputation is what’s going to impact whether or not potential clients want to partner with you in the future. Remember, though your brokerage will undoubtedly provide you with resources to assist you in your career, it’s critical that how you use those resources (and consequently work with clients) serves as the basis for your personal branding.
In luxury real estate, your business is built upon who you are, the types of relationships you foster with clients, and how effectively you meet the needs of your client base. Your brand image should revolve around the things that make you unique as a real estate professional — not the things that make your brokerage what it is. Having a genuine connection with everyone you encounter will go much farther in helping your referral pipeline than how familiar a potential client is with the brokerage you’re associated with. However, it is also important to note though that the culture of your brokerage is critical to your success.
Authenticity and Always Delivering a Luxury Experience:
Since crafting a brand image is so closely connected to the type of service you deliver, it’s important to always be your authentic self when working with the upper tier. Authenticity will help guide your efforts, providing the blueprint you need to customize the type of service you deliver and establish yourself as the go-to real estate professional within your market. Remember, your referral pipeline will benefit from the more positive, luxury experiences you’re able to deliver on, and will likely help expand your sphere of influence at the same time as well — all while establishing your brand as a luxury real estate professional.
Speaking of luxury experiences, have you ever thought about what “luxury” actually means in real estate? Luxury real estate is typically defined as a home sale falling within a particular price point. However, since prices are based on market conditions, and market conditions aren’t something we as individuals have much control over, price really shouldn’t be what defines you as a luxury real estate professional. Instead, you should be focusing on delivering bespoke experiences that truly embody the idea of what luxury real estate is all about. Therefore, luxury real estate is all about high-quality service delivered to each and every client in order to create as unique an experience as possible — all of which will help define your personal brand.
