Why Windermere?

Because for us, it truly is about relationships.

Forty years ago, John Jacobi set out to change the real estate industry by putting relationships before sales quotas, with an emphasis on service to our clients and our community. Windermere’s second generation (the people in the photo to the left) have continued this mission, partnering with other like-minded professionals who have helped grow Windermere into one of the largest independent real estate companies in the nation, with more than 300 offices and 7,000 agents throughout the Western U.S. and Mexico. What does this mean for you? It means integrity, a strict code of ethics, serious market expertise, and a hardcore commitment to our community. These aren’t just words; it is truly what we have striven to stand for over the past 40 years. And will continue to do so in the years to come.  Discover the difference a true relationship can make.

When deciding on where to hang your license, there are a few things that set Windermere apart:

Creating Thriving Communities

Windermere is committed to the communities in which we live and work. Through the Windermere Foundation, our annual Community Service Day, and a variety of community events, Windermere agents, owners, and staff work together to help build and sustain thriving neighborhoods.

The Best People Backed by a Strong Brand

Windermere’s community of real estate professionals is our greatest asset. We have experts in all areas of real estate, from your typical starter home to condos, luxury properties, and new construction. While residential real estate is the mainstay of our business, Windermere also has offices and associates who specialize in property management, commercial real estate, and relocation services. To further facilitate the home buying process, Windermere has affiliated partners in certain regions to provide mortgage, title, and escrow services.

The Best Tools & Technology

Our agents have access to a wide range of innovative tools and programs, allowing them to serve home buyers and sellers in a way that is truly unique to Windermere. Some of our most successful tools were born from our agents’ own ingenuity, and we continually look to them for ways to improve upon everything we do. Ultimately, the most powerful tool that Windermere has is our agents; their professionalism and commitment to community enables them to tailor their service individually to each of their clients’ needs.

The Best Education & Training

Windermere has developed a proven process for professional development and works hand-in-hand with management and ownership to facilitate all of your education needs … and the pre-license course is just the first step.  Once hired you’ll be coached through a strategic and custom-tailored Track to Success from day one.  Relationships are at the core of our business model and value structure, and we believe this starts with our students and then carries over to our agents and, most importantly, your customers.  We care about your success because it is a direct reflection of our own, and we are committed to giving you the training and education you need to be competitive in today’s fast-paced market.
