The Difference Between a Real Estate Group and a Brokerage

f you are searching for the right realtor to help you through the process of buying or selling your home, you have likely seen many terms floating around online. While boutique real estate groups (like ours!) are becoming more and more common, many people are confused about how they fit into the current system of realtors and brokerages.

If you’ve found that you have questions about this, you are not alone! Below, we will break down exactly how a boutique real estate group fits into the larger ecosystem of the real estate world and the benefits of choosing one for your Charleston house hunt!

What is a Real Estate Brokerage?

By law, any real estate agent must be affiliated with a brokerage in order to continue to practice. So for example, we are real estate agents in a realty group, but we work with the brokerage Carolina One Real Estate. As a real estate group, we are able to provide the backing of their affiliation while also working as a team for each one of our clients.

What is the Benefit of Working With a Broker-Backed Realty Group?

As a small team with the backing of a major real estate brokerage, we are able to provide the same level of service as a large company while maintaining the feel of a small business. Our brokerage affiliation gives us connections to other agents in Charleston and beyond, allowing us to share listings internally and get the intel on trends (and properties, before they hit the market!). This also means that we have a team of lawyers in case contracts need to be negotiated or consulted on in a buying or selling situation.

How is a Real Estate Group Able to Help Me?

When you work with a real estate group, whether you are buying or selling, you can expect top-notch service from each one of us. As licensed realtors, we are able to help our clients with every aspect of the process, from showings to transactions to the final walkthrough. When people trust us to handle their real estate transactions, they can be certain that we have the knowledge and expertise to help in whatever capacity they need—and we genuinely love what we do!
