PSAR is proud to welcome as new members Sellstate Next Gen Realty of San Diego and broker Nicole Turner’s entire office of 25 agents.
“With our previous Association, we were not receiving adequate service and support,” said Nicole, who has 13 years of experience in real estate sales. “My agents had concerns, and so did I. For over a year, I had been researching PSAR and asking them lots of questions, and I was receiving good answers that matched what I was looking for with our team. Eventually, it came to a point that it was time to make the switch.”
When Nicole asked her agents to make the move to PSAR in March, they approved it enthusiastically, she said.
“I see a lot of similarities between PSAR and our office, including professionalism, teamwork, family atmosphere, genuineness and culture,” Nicole said. “The PSAR leadership and staff are first class. When you walk into a PSAR office, you are not greeted with a grumpy face or corporate stuffiness. Instead, you are treated with respect as a business owner and friendliness. With PSAR, I see opportunities for our agents to connect and gain knowledge and benefit from state-of-the-art technology, like additional property exposure with the CRMLS (California Regional Multiple Listing Service).
“So far, it’s been an eye-opening experience with PSAR. No one likes change, but my agents were willing to move with me. Today, my agents are extremely happy that we made the move. We love the support and teamwork at PSAR, with teamwork you can never go wrong. Plus, we love to support and be side-by-side with our agents as they continue to reach their dreams. I’m looking forward to a mutually beneficial relationship and greater involvement in the future.”
Nicole and her San Diego regional business partners, John Werkmeister and Kathie Young, acquired Sellstate’s first San Diego franchise in 2009. Last June, they moved to their new home in Mission Valley, 438 Camino del Rio South, San Diego.
“Our leadership team has more than 76 years of experience,” said Nicole. “Our agents are not only our business partners, but also family members. We have a lot of fun in our office and love doing business together.”
Sellstate was recently presented with the Tech Titan Award from RIS Media. The award is presented to brokerage leaders who have demonstrated an exceptional ability to adapt and integrate new and innovative tools and services within their organization to improve and enhance the overall consumer experience.
“It’s always great to welcome a new brokerage to PSAR,” said Robert Calloway, 2019 PSAR President. “We congratulate Sellstate for looking out for the best interests of their clients with cutting-edge technology, which is an identical commitment to PSAR and the same reason why we joined CRMLS in 2018.”
Nicole’s office is also involved in giving back to the community. Last year, the office hosted a charity fundraising golf tournament, called “Swingin’ with Sellstate.” The tournament benefitted the Warrior Foundation Freedom Station, a San Diego nonprofit that assists injured military personnel with support and transitional housing designed to assist during recovery from injuries and transition from military service to civilian life. This year’s tournament will be held Oct. 19, 2019, at Riverwalk Golf Club.
Sellstate Next Gen Realty also supports 1st Saturday, a program that collects clothes, backpacks, blankets, food items and toiletry items that are combined in “Care Packs” and distributed to homeless people on the first Saturday of the month.
