The 2011 results are in... for the 9th time, the Goodale Miller Team is the #1 team in Canada for Century 21! We couldn’t be prouder, or more grateful to those who make this happen for us, year after year.
To be ranked as the #1 team in the country within the largest real estate company in the world is an enormous honour under any circumstances. To have now earned this distinction 9 times simply blows us away. We’re often asked how we do it. There are lots of answers but the simplest and arguably most important is this, always put the needs of our clients first. It so easy to say and really easy to do, but its unfortunately not as common as it should be.
People put their trust in us and we reciprocate with honesty, and integrity. Families trust us with their dreams, and investors and custom home-builders trust us with their bottom lines.
Our suppliers also deserve some credit. We seek out the most talented photographers, videographers and designers in the business. And our referral network of professionals deserve a pat on the back, as well. These are the lawyers, home inspectors, surveyors, custom home builders, planners and other experts who value our clients as much as we do. When you network with the best in their business, it helps you become the best in your business.
Diversity helps, too. Although we may be best known for selling luxury real estate in Oakville, we’re proud to serve buyers and sellers at every price point. And, of course, our expertise extends to the neighbouring communities of Burlington and Mississauga, as well.
We can even attribute some of our success to living in a great community. After all, we live and work in beautiful Oakville... one of the most affluent and desirable towns in the country. Many of our team members were born and raised here, including Don Goodale and Brad Miller.
When Don and Brad are asked to narrow it down to just one thing that they can attribute our success to, they sum it up as the team members ourselves, and more specifically, the hiring practices that brought us together. The Goodale Miller Team experienced unprecedented growth over the last two years, but not just any successful Realtor is invited to join our team. Expertise and experience alone doesn’t quite cut it. GMT members also all possess that rare quality - something which exists in each of our personalities - that defines us as true team players. We support each other and work together for the benefit of our clients, and for each other. This internal, non-competitive culture truly sets us apart. And, of course, it ensures that every client reaps the benefits of our collective resources, experience and expertise. That’s probably the true secret to our success.
