REECENICHOLS CELEBRATES RECORD-BREAKING 2016


“ReeceNicholsWith .3 billion in residential sales volume, ReeceNichols achieved its most successful year in 16 years in 2016 and helped 20,278 Kansas City families buy and sell their homes. The company grew to over 2,300 real estate sales professionals operating out of 18 offices throughout Kansas City and its surrounding counties — maintaining its position as the largest real estate company both in the metropolitan area and throughout Missouri and Kansas.

The ReeceNichols family of services enjoyed similarly excellent results. HomeServices Lending helped over 1,200 families purchase homes, and three of their lending officers ranked in the top 10 nationally for all of HomeServices Lending. In addition, Reece & Nichols Insurance provided peace of mind and security for 400 households, and Kansas City Title navigated over 8,000 people through the home closing process. The ReeceNichols Alliance offices —which span north to St. Joseph, Missouri; east to Columbia, Missouri; south to Ottawa, Kansas; and west to Junction City, Kansas — closed 4,205 transactions with over 56 million in residential sales volume.

“These records and achievements are a direct result of our outstanding sales professionals, who are deeply committed to serving Kansas City,” President & CEO Linda Vaughan said. “We do our best to equip them with the best technology and tools to serve their clients, but all 2,300 of our team members are responsible for creating those rewarding experiences to home buyers and sellers. Our family of services strive to work seamlessly with our branch offices to help our clients enjoy the smoothest home buying and selling experiences.”

REECENICHOLS UNROLLS NEW COACHING AND MENTORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES


ReeceNichols has designed and implemented new mentorship and coaching programs, providing their agents with leading-edge technology and hands-on training. As the top real estate company in Kansas City, ReeceNichols is committed to equipping their agents with the industry’s top tools to help make buying or selling a home easier and more enjoyable for our consumers.

Inspired by sister company Edina Realty’s mentorship program, the FastTrack mentorship program pairs each new associate with an experienced, in-office mentor, who will guide them through the exciting first year of their career and provide invaluable, time-tested advice and expertise. An online component to FastTrack complements this partnership. The step-by-step, gamified interface leads agents through nine units covering all aspects of home buying and selling, in both video and written formats. With help from their mentors, agents complete each unit’s tasks, which vary from the simple — readying their business platforms — to the complex — successfully preparing for and producing an open house and negotiating a real estate offer and sale. This combination of easy-to-use software, engaging content and dedicated mentors prepares ReeceNichols agents to adeptly handle any business situation.

In addition to the FastTrack program, ReeceNichols offers other training opportunities to all agents. Free to ReeceNichols agents is the newly-redesigned ReeceNichols Advantage class. ReeceNichols Advantage is a five-day, comprehensive introduction to all relevant home buying and selling topics and an immersion into ReeceNichols’ technologies for helping agents be the leading experts in their markets. Building upon the Advantage classes, the Certified ReeceNichols Consultant (CRNC) designation program offers a deeper education on these topics and others over 10 courses taught by the ReeceNichols Leadership Team. CRNC is free to ReeceNichols agents, and upon completing all 10 courses, agents are awarded the CRNC designation, a lapel pin to mark their excellence and a 00 bonus on their next closing.

“We know and recognize the challenges facing our industry and the need to provide our consumers with the most knowledgeable and professional agents. FastTrack, ReeceNichols Advantage and CRNC were all designed to attack that challenge head on and better equip new and experienced agents alike with the most comprehensive education in our market,” President & CEO Linda Vaughan said. “No other real estate company in the area can boast such robust coaching and mentorship opportunities for their agents.”

REECE COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE UNVEILS NEW OFFICE SPACE


After almost doubling the volume of its transactions since 2014, Reece Commercial Real Estate (RCRE) moved into new offices at 8005 W. 110th Street in Overland Park, Kansas. The larger space reflects RCRE’s rapid increased success and expected future growth.

In addition, RCRE was chosen as the exclusive leasing and sales agent for the soon-to-be-developed Gateway Sports Village, a 00 million soccer, retail, hospitality and residential development in Grandview, Missouri.

RCRE Senior Vice President and Managing Broker, John Stacy, SIOR, joined the company in 2015 after more than 30 years in the real estate business. He was recently inducted into the 2016 Midwest Real Estate’s Hall of Fame.
