What Our Agents Have To Say:
"I have been selling real estate for 22 years and have worked for several companies. This is the first office I have worked for that has me excited about Real Estate again. I have received more useful information, in less time, and for a lot less money than with any previous office. I am not easily impressed - but this time I AM impressed. "

"One of the key elements, to me, is the opportunity to expand the entreprenuerial aspects of being in a business of our own. Hybrid eliminates some of the issues that prevent maximum value for the individual brokers yet still provides the basics each of us need to be successful.
For example, you provide excellent tech and logistical support. The fax to e mail system is one example. It helps expedite the work I do and let's me process papers that are sent by fax much more quickly. Scanning is an accepted way to do business now days, but there are clients who still rely on fax. You are always available (7 days a week) to help less techy guys like me take advantage of web sites. And we all know that's where our buyers and sellers now go before contacting a broker.
And the financial package is outstanding. The monthly fee at just $50 is great and coupling this with the 95% split and a maximum commission of $6000 per year helps puts the money situation strongly in the agents favor. And we do not pay out anything beyond the $50 until we actually close a transaction!! How sweet is that!!!
And we have a seasoned principal broker in Mike Boyst who is a great help in managing and effectively working the transaction part of our business. It's the best deal in town, by far."

"Agents ask me what makes Hybrid different? The name is defined as having mated two things of different origins together. What does that mean for us? We have taken the very best of many things from an agent point of view, but what does that mean to the public. It seems that a hybrid corporate structure, as we've created it, has reengineered the standard real estate company model by:
We require that the individuals in our company must be independent and successful, thereby forcing those entering our company to be experienced professionals.
We do not have a new agent farm that allows young agents to gain perceived credibility by using a highly marketed name brand that might deceive the public.
We are local. By choosing not to send an average of 5%, I'm guessing, of our GROSS income to some out of state franchise conglomerate.
We do not charge our agents excessive fees which could limit agents on what they can do for our customers' marketing and service.
We are technology based with our emphasis being on cutting edge internet based marketing which reaches 87 times more people than print advertising.
We are socially responsible in that we have the lowest carbon footprint, a measurement of our commitment to the environment, of any other local real estate company.
Our company structure has propelled us to become the fastest growing Oregon company in 2009 and 2010."
