OHS MARKETING TEAM – ROYAL LEPAGE PARKSVILLEQUALICUM BEACH REALTY
Qualicum Beach, BC
Team leader: Rob Ohs
Starting a team has allowed Rob Ohs to achieve more than he ever thought possible as an individual Realtor. “It has made me think of running a team as less of a job and more of a business that includes leadership, mentorship and constant analysis,” Ohs says. “By leveraging talented people and modelling systems and best practices, we have been able to achieve growth each year.”
Ohs says staff retention is the biggest challenge a leader faces when attempting to keep a team on track. While financial compensation plays an outsized role, Ohs says finding intangible methods of showing team members they are appreciated is something prospective team leaders need to consider.
“To be honest, I didn’t manage that very well in the early years of the team,” he says. “But reviewing compensation packages annually, having close communication with every member of the team and really getting to know their personalities helps me understand what they need to be happy, contributing members of the team.”
