NEW YORK/ March 12, 2018 (STLRealEstate.News) — JaNell Simpson has joined technology-driven real estate brokerage, Real, as a Managing Broker in Missouri and New Mexico, the company announced.
“With 14 years experience as a successful agent, team leader and broker, JaNell is a great asset to the Missouri and New Mexico agents in our fast-growing company,” said Tamir Poleg, co-founder and CEO of Real. “As a focused, confident, available voice, the agents can be sure of a guiding hand from JaNell when they need it.”
Simpson is a Louisiana native and graduate of Southern University. Simpson worked as a residential sales agent for Keller Williams in Baton Rouge several years ago before starting her own brokerage, Excel Realty of Louisiana. Her team of 15 agents specialized in the first-time home buyer market, new construction and investor transactions. She eventually switched gears and worked in the commercial real estate industry in retail auditing.
In 2016, she was hired to lead the launch of a real estate brokerage startup in the New Orleans area and worked as its managing broker. Within months of a successful grand opening, Simpson learned that she would be relocating with her family and now resides in Missouri. She was excited to choose Real as the option for continuing her real estate career.
“Real is the perfect blend of technology and real estate brokerage, providing me the opportunity for flexibility and to exercise my entrepreneurial spirit,” Simpson said. “The idea of forging a path with Real really attracted me much more than joining a traditional brokerage. I have a lot of experience in growing businesses from scratch, which is the very essence of being a real estate agent and something I’m eager to help others do,” Simpson said.
Simpson plans to rapidly grow her Missouri and New Mexico teams this year. She believes the freedom and flexibility offered to agents by the Real platform will be major selling points.
“I bring a high level of understanding from different angles because I know what it is like to be completely on your own and also a part of a large brand,” Simpson says. “Between the brokers, support team and agent community, there’s a lot of support here.”
Simpson also points to Real’s 85/15 commission splits and cutting edge technology. “Real is very forward thinking,” Simpson says. “If you want to be ahead of the curve, Real is the place for you.”
