Having a thriving EBU (Effective Business Unit) is very important to the success of any real estate agent and agency, but building an EBU definitely comes with its challenges. It is not always easy to know when to bring new team members on board and what skills and personality traits to look out for. At the end of the day, it is very important for your team to have good communication skills and great team dynamics.
The goal when building an EBU is to increase productivity & profitability by developing a structured team around the lead agent. Where many go wrong is in bringing on “assistants”, and they both end up doing everything together. This is not ideal!
Without proper job descriptions, effective communication and the right integrative systems, your workload remains the same, but your overheads will go up, and your profitability will go down.
