Community-Mindfulness: 
The Crux of The Brinkoetter Culture

Community_MindfulnessWorking with a real estate agent who is invested in the community adds up to big advantages for clients. Not only do they have good relationships with area professionals, and know what’s going on within the community, often times they know what’s about to transpire locally. They’re ahead of the trends and on top of their game.

As a company, Brinkoetter Realtors’ commitment to technology, innovation, and community involvement are the crux of our culture. And as we are a body of more than 60 agents, we are represented across a wide variety of organizations, clubs, projects, and leadership collaborations. On any given day, you’ll find a Brinkoetter representative helping a local charity, volunteering at a school, delivering meals to elderly friends, or working to better our city neighborhoods.

We work hard. We serve well. We love our neighbors and our community. That’s the Brinkoetter Culture.

“It’s my belief that an agent involved in the community only proves that he or she truly loves and enjoys where he or she lives,” says Jenny Lambdin. “When you genuinely enjoy where you live and actively participate in community events, it’s much easier to ‘sell’ a potential client on our community. Supporting organizations and volunteering at events is a reflection on our desire be a part of something great.”

Adds Blake Reynolds, “Having a great network in the community puts your real estate agent in a better position to sell your home. We’ve all heard the saying, ‘It's not always what you know, it's who you know.’ I am thankful to be involved in organizations such as Renaissance Church, Eisenhower High School, and Big Brothers Big Sisters. The friends and contacts I have gained there have definitely made me a better agent!”

And it works for the agent’s benefit, too. Real estate agents who are community-minded and driven to succeed can prospect within their geographic farm to generate valuable word-of-mouth business. Positive referrals, glowing testimonials, social media shares - not only are these meaningful assets to an agent, it means spending less resources on traditional advertising methods. It’s a true win-win situation.

(Psssst: if your agent did a good job for you, drop them a line to tell them so. It really does go a long way.)

A locally-invested agent is also a wealth of information. “As I was going through real estate school, I learned that as a realtor, you have the opportunity to be ‘the source’ of information,” says Louis Kappler. “From looking up tax records and understanding the school districts, to who to go to when you need an oil change. Being in a position where you can be 'the source' means you are someone who can be relied upon. Someone who can be trusted.”
