John Ross talks about his career with Professionals
When I joined Professionals in 1989, I was attracted by the strong brand. It was distinctive and selective. It stood out.
For my business, that brand is as valuable today as it was when I started. Perhaps even more so. Because these days it also represents the collective resources, shared ideas, sales and marketing collateral and professional development programmes that are provided to all business owners like myself.
In order to be successful you need great systems and tools. Professionals empower you to become a better leader, a more astute business person; they help you develop skills in the areas of personnel development, market warfare, finance, marketing and more.
All of this has given me the tools to deal efficiently with my daily operations, and the confidence to delegate to others so that I can focus on ‘big picture’ issues. In short, to be more successful.
I measure that success by how well I compete in the market. Operating in a big city can be tough, so it’s pretty special when your market share demonstrates just how well you are doing. It’s also great to have that success acknowledged by the Professionals performance awards; these are a positive reinforcement for all successful business owners.
Professionals have a lot to offer anyone considering a branding change. Top of the list would be value for money, team culture and a fairer fee structure. Professionals invest profits back into the membership group, rather than to shareholders. It’s a unique approach that is behind Professionals year on year success in New Zealand since 1984.
For anyone currently independent, a Professionals business offers economy of scale. You don’t have to create everything yourself and can tap into existing range of resources. It saves time and it makes your operation more profitable.
Real estate is, and always will be, an exciting industry - and people are a big part of it. I enjoy empowering my team and watching them succeed. This is what makes my business a success and allows me take time out to do the other thing I love - waterskiing!
