Royal LePage First Contact, Faris Team
Since founding the Faris Team with his wife Joanna in 2007, Mark Faris’ goal-oriented, systems-based, client-first approach has led to consistent – and consistently jaw-dropping – growth. Faris’ Royal LePage franchise has been the company’s No.1 team since 2015.
Faris, who oversees training and maintaining company culture at First Contact, says a major part of the brokerage’s success relies on allowing agents to do what they do best: sell.
“That’s one thing that really separates us,” Faris says. “Instead of having a ton of agents and very little administrative and marketing staff, we’re heavy on the administrative and marketing end. We take a lot of those tasks off the sales partners.”
Faris says 2017 will be a year of system optimization for his team, ensuring his cooperative and tight-knit group stays on the same path.
“It seems like a small thing talking about culture, but it’s such a massive part of a team and growth,” he says.
“If that starts to slip, that’s the beginning of the end.”
