CENTURY 21 Realty Group I 3801 East 82nd Street,
Indianapolis, IN 46240
History and Philosophy
  • Founded in 1980 by 8 top agents from the 1
    Independent in Indy
  • Our goal To create and our own company where we
    could sell real estate
  • Kevin and I were in the original group.
  • We were basically a co-op and divided the
    expenses at the end of each month and split the
    costs between each agent/owner.
  • We didnt plan to grow beyond the original owners
    - other agents requested to join the company
  • Agents were attracted by high standards,
    productivity and excellent reputation
  • The goal was to be the Most Professional Group
    in the city. This goal still drives the
    operations of this company
  • The company was designed by top agents to serve
    only top agents
  • Services and systems were designed to serve the
    needs of high producers
  • This basic philosophy is still in place today

High Standards Pay Off!
  • Realty Group has achieved results far beyond
    their original goals and expectations.
  • 1 CENTURY 21 Office in the World for 6 years
  • Consistently 1 real estate office in market
    share in the entire Metropolitan Indianapolis
    market area
  • Maintained high hiring standards for agents
  • Must have at least two years of experience and
    high production before we will interview them
  • Must have maintained high ethical standards
  • Must be full time agents NO PART TIME!
  • We empower our agents to help is the
    determination of which agents we hire.
  • Must not require Hands-on management

Realty Group I Concept
  • How it works - Three basic programs
  • Plan A Full RGI In-House Agent Program
  • Plan B Remote Program
  • Plan C Traditional Commission Split Program

Realty Group I Concept
  • Agent Plans - Breakdown by Percentage
  • Plan A Realty Group I In-House Agent Program
  • Plan B Traditional Split In-house Agent Program
  • Plan C Remote Program 58
  • Note The remote program has allowed Realty Group
    I to grow beyond the physical space in the
  • It has driven additional revenue through the
    front door with only a marginal raise in expenses
  • Our Remote agents are among our top agents
  • Top agents like it because it allows them to stay
    totally focused on their business without the
    distraction of other agents

Our Remote Program
  • This program is one of the largest contributing
    factors to the success and large production
    volume of this office.
  • It appeals to top producers that dont need or
    want daily management
  • It removes the limitations of a physical
  • Our building has desk space for 60 agents
  • We have 86 full time agents and 29 assistants and
    have room for expansion
  • We have offices available for in-office agents
  • We can hire an UNLIMITED NUMBER of remote agents
  • Because of the reduced services we provide to our
    remote agents, our hard desk costs are
    considerably lower for these agents
  • Because they work from home, they serve markets
    close to where they live, not where the office is
  • This allowed us to expand our market area without
    opening physical space
  • The remote program drives more business through
    the front door, increasing our sales volume and
    GCC dramatically.

    the operation and the need to consistently
    provide services beyond the expectations of our

Supervision and Management
  • Because we hire only top producing agents, our
    agents have very little need or desire for
    supervision, motivation systems or management. We
    provide supervision only when requested or a need
    is indicated.
  • One of our agents, Pat Shinaver, put it in
    perspective she stated, Realty Group I is an
    office for adults
  • We are available to assist agents when the need
    arises. We do not micromanage them.
  • Our agents own their own destiny they like it
    like that!

    operations of the office running smoothly

Vision of Growth Expansion
  • Real estate industry is rapidly changing
  • Real estate companies are becoming larger
  • Small companies arent profitable and brokers are
  • There is a need to expand and grow.
  • Small brokers have to sell houses to make a
    living support the office
  • Small brokers dont have time to recruit and
    train cant grow
  • Through consolidation, costs can be controlled
    and necessary services provided to allow the
    affiliate broker/manager more time and
    flexibility to focus on growth and profitability.
  • Technology is too expensive for the small
    independent broker. It is a concern for all

History of RGC
  • In 1998, RGC created the Strategic Growth plan
    and put people in place to focus on its
  • In April, 1999, Realty Group Companies had two
    offices in Northern Indianapolis
  • Realty Group I
  • Realty Group II (Now Realty Group-McCoun)
  • In two short years, Realty Group Companies has
    grown to 12 offices throughout central Indiana
  • Our goal is to be the 1 real estate company in
    market share in every market we serve.

  • Multi-Office Expansion, 1998-2005

  • In October 1998, we created a strategic plan for
    growth and expansion
  • We review the plan regularly to measure
    progress. We are pleased with the results to
    date. We are on target and making giant strides
    towards reaching the goals set forth
  • We understand that it is a process of continuous
  • It is understood by our entire management staff
    that the focus must be on the EXECUTION of the
    strategic plan . Not on RESULTS.
  • As plan is executed, results are measured so
    adjustments can be made
  • INNOVATION allows for the ability to adapt and
  • EXCELLENCE is a result of proper execution

RGC Offices Throughout Central Indiana
  • We only want one large office in each major
    market Profitability is lost when we are
    burdened with too much bricks and mortar.

We do not believe in placing a lot of offices in
a single market area

Mergers Acquisitions
  • We analyze the needs of each potential
    affiliation and the opportunity the affiliation
    offers to all parties to determine the type of
    affiliation that fits the individual needs

    potential acquisition and arrange terms that fit
    the needs of the parties
  • Merger We merge two existing offices in the
    same market area when profitability dictates. In
    this scenario, we determine the value of the
    offices and negotiate terms that fit the needs of
    the market and the parties
  • Joint Venture Partnerships The joint venture
    partnership allows us to partner with an existing
    office by forming a new entity that merges the
    assets of RGC and the new affiliate partner.
  • We constantly scan for opportunities to merge
    other offices into our existing affiliated
    offices providing them growth through mergers.
