We are honoured to announce that Tommy’s Real Estate has been selected to join the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World – a powerhouse global network of the world’s market-leading independent residential brokerages in over 70 countries, with 565 firms and 130,000 sales associates producing over 1.1 million transactions valued at $372 billion annually. Now, when you choose Tommy’s you’ll have the benefit of our international partner network.
As an established leader in the Wellington market, Tommy’s has a reach that extends far beyond the local area through its membership in Leading Real Estate Companies of the World™, the largest global community of high quality, independent, real estate companies.
Membership in Leading Real Estate Companies of the World™, or “LeadingRE”, is only awarded to select, market-leading companies that have demonstrated excellence in service delivery and results.
“In an industry made up of over 100,000 brokerages characterized by dramatically inconsistent service delivery and customer experience, our members set the standard for quality in the markets they serve,” said LeadingRE President/CEO Paul Boomsma. “We take our commitment to quality very seriously, and, as a result, only 20% of the companies that inquire about membership are extended an invitation to affiliate.”
The value of being aligned with LeadingRE, however, is much more than just a discerning third-party endorsement. LeadingRE members have access to world-class resources for marketing, technology and professional development.
Through its membership, Tommy’s has valuable connections to the best real estate professionals in 70 countries around the world. These connections bring global exposure and a broader pool of prospective buyers for the homes Tommy’s represents. And, for those looking for real estate outside of the area, Tommy’s can provide assistance through LeadingRE’s worldwide network of 550 vetted real estate firms.
“Our culture of co-operation, teamwork and support has made Tommy’s one of the most successful real estate companies per capita in the country. Our office might be regional, but in the years 2015 and 2017, we won the REINZ ‘National Top Office of the Year’ and we were a finalist for ‘selling more properties from a single office than any other agency’ in New Zealand. Now through our affiliation with LeadingRE, we are connected and partnered with some of the most successful real estate organisations in the country and across the globe,” said Nick Cruickshank, Sales Director, Tommy’s Real Estate.
While all LeadingRE companies, brokers and sales associates have a shared focus on quality and connections, they are also committed to independence, with distinctive cultures and services that align with the unique needs of the areas they serve.
“All of our firms are deeply rooted in their communities – independently owned, with an uncommon local knowledge that allows them to help clients make better-informed real estate decisions,” Boomsma said.
“Tommy’s Real Estate has long been recognised as the top real estate agency in Wellington and as a member of the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, our reach and impact is now worldwide. With a local focus and a global view, Tommy’s will ensure that our client’s will have the best access to the finest referrals for the sale of their property,” said Nicki Cruickshank.
Through LeadingRE, Tommy’s Real Estate combines the best of an authentic, local brand with the worldwide connections and tools that are so vital in today’s global marketplace.
About Leading Re.
In 1997, 50 of the largest brokerage firms in the United States left a major industry network in order to launch what later became Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® with the goal of controlling their own destiny and creating a network comprised of only the best locally- and regionally-branded firms focused on raising the bar in real estate. Today, we lead the industry in reputation and a long list of metrics related to sales, market coverage, and more. LeadingRE’s mantra is “Making the Best Brokerages Better,” by providing these leading local brands with world-class business resources and national and global connections.
We’re Local. We’re Global™.
