Posted by Michelle Poitevin — April 2, 2012
SEATTLE, WA. (March 30, 2012) – Executives at Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty announced today the addition of Nate Short to their expanding Seattle-based global realty network. Mr. Short ranks within the top one percent (1%) for individual sales volume among more than 16,000 active brokers within the Northwest Multiple Listing Service. His appointment further demonstrates a commitment by the real estate firm to attract top producing brokers, to diversify its offerings to consumers and to expand their market reach into the affluent Eastside communities and beyond.
“Mr. Short exemplifies the caliber of industry professionals that have come to define our expanding brand throughout the Pacific Northwest,” said Chad Zinda, Designated Broker and Director of Sales for Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty. “This alignment with Mr. Short illustrates how two notable brands ‐‐ a top ranked real estate broker and a globally‐optimized brokerage firm ‐‐ can become better together. We value this win‐win approach to business whether that’s with our client or with our brokers.”
Unlike the typical “desk fee” brokerage‐for‐hire models, which most brokerage firms observe, Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty invests in each individual broker to grow their business and participates in their sales production.
“Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty offers my business the brand differentiation, unparalleled marketing support and new opportunities to expand my services,” said Short. “I’m excited by this new approach to growth in our industry.”
In addition to establishing a new vertical for luxury home sales under The Short Group, the collective will help resource a new special assets division to market commercial properties, land sales, lender notes, receivership opportunities and REO listings by virtue of numerous bank relationships maintained by Mr. Short and his new brokerage firm alike.
