Sample Email Message to Send Your SOI
Communicate about this change to via email to your SOI. Here’s a sample message you can use:
I wanted to be the first to let you know of a change that is happening at my company. We’ve been a franchise of Coldwell Banker since 1988, but the company has been in business under the Wallace family name since 1936. On April 1, we will be going back to our roots, and will be known as Wallace Real Estate, Wallace Commercial, and Wallace Property Management. This decision by our owners was not made quickly or lightly. 35 years ago, joining a strong national franchise was the path to growth. It’s no secret that technology has come a long way in the last three decades. The way homes are marketed, and the way consumers find homes to purchase has also changed. The number of products and services that we have available to us now has exploded exponentially, and over the years, my company has adopted many of them.
It’s important that the agent you choose to help you with your real estate needs knows the local market. And I’m proud to be with a company that has already proven, during it’s 87-year history, that we know east Tennessee. And while it’s important to me that I keep up with our area’s sales statistics, it’s also critical that I know what marketing strategies are most effective in selling homes and property in our area, and that top-notch service is expected.
My company has outgrown the one-size-fits-all offerings of a national franchise and is making this change to have the freedom to react to market and industry adjustments quickly. On April 1, we will become the largest independent real estate company in all of east Tennessee. And, I’m pleased to announce that we have joined Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, a network that spans the nation and the globe, and one that is more expansive and diverse than the network we’ve been part of for so long. Being part of this network connects us to hundreds of other independent real estate companies, so that we can continue to serve your real estate needs, no matter the location.
You are, no doubt, wondering what this means for you. It means that you will see new signage and advertising. It means I will be sporting a new logo. It means that the marketing of your property, to bring you the best price for your home, will be adjusted to accommodate my new branding but that I am still here for you.
Keep your eye out for Wallace Real Estate, a local leader with roots in east Tennessee and global connections. I look forward to helping you, your friends, and your family members with your future real estate needs!
