Every Monday morning at 7AM sharp, we at Hall and Hall, participate in a conference call. This call includes partners and support staff we simply can’t live without. At first glance, this might sound boring and mundane. However, I have grown to genuinely appreciate and love our Monday morning calls. When I step back and think about the collective experience of my partners, their history and credibility in the industry, and the rationale and purpose behind our weekly call, I am humbled to be part of such a unique group of people.
The men and women on this call are like family and like any family; we discuss a diverse and wide variety of topics including very challenging issues, there may be disagreements, there is humor, there is sensitivity and compassion towards others, we share important events like marriages, child birth, loss, and personal struggles we may be experiencing that require help from other people internally. I was raised on a ranch in Colorado and have over 20 years of experience selling ranches, however this pales in comparison to some of the men I work with. Our Monday is started with opportunity to learn and grow not only individually but as a team. When I need counsel or guidance, there are numerous people I can look towards. This value can not be measured or quantified and is one of the reasons Hall and Hall will always be different and unique compared to other brokerages.
If it weren’t for the amazing team of people that take care of the partners and keep us on track, we wouldn’t have the success that we are fortunate to experience. Most importantly, the primary purpose for our Monday call is ultimately for the benefit of our clients. Both landowners and prospective buyers are the beneficiaries of our call. We discuss topics like new ranches we have recently listed and through this process the partners learn that this new ranch may be the perfect fit for the buyer they have been developing a relationship with. Or there may be a change in status on a ranch we have been marketing that leads to a sale. Not too mention, the intel we all share or learn from one another about specific ranches, the market, world events, advancements in technology, the flow of money, and numerous other informational points.
The call is the culmination of men and women of different generations, age demographics, experience, expertise, transnational history, and a whole lot of wisdom all flowing together for the benefit of the people most important to us…..YOU. For those who have decided to use Hall and Hall for one or many of the services we provide; know that you are the lifeblood of what we do and the importance of this is discussed in detail every Monday morning, among the best group of people I know.
