Anna Armstrong Wins WJD Annual Agent Contest!
Every year, WJD Management hosts a special contest for Northern Virginia Real Estate Agents where one lucky agent is awarded free NVAR dues for a year, plus a generous referral commission. WJD runs this special contest as a way to thank agents who are out there showing our rental homes. The nice thing about our contest is, even if you do not win, you still receive a generous referral commission for your referral plus our promise that we will return your client to you when they are ready to sell. Becoming a part of our network is simple and rewarding. We view our relationships with agents as partnerships and understand your desire to maintain your relationships with your clients. This is a big part of why WJD Management focuses 100 percent on property management! We do not want to compete with you. We want to do what we are good at, and let you do what you are good at.
We know it is a competitive market out there and we also know that agent referral programs are a dime a dozen. The main difference with ours, aside from the fact that we do not sell real estate, is our commission structure is more generous than most. We offer up to a 30 percent commission rate for referrals–and payments are issued on time and quickly! In fact, here is what one agent recently said about receiving her commission: “Finally sat down to do my books for the last two months and saw the very generous referral commission for 6109 Holly Tree Drive. Thank you so much! –Tanya Salseth, Keller Williams Realty.”
In addition to our generous referral commissions, our relationships with agents are real. Last year, as in years past, we awarded one lucky agent free NVAR dues. Our winner last year was Anna Armstrong! After we announced that she had won our contest, we caught up with Anna because we wanted real insight from a real agent. Anna Armstrong leads Team 1intergrity powered by Samson Properties, and here is what she had to say about working with WJD Management.
What Anna Armstrong Had to Say About WJD Management’s Client Referral Program
Anna Armstrong: I first contacted WJD Management in the Spring of 2018 and have been working with them ever since. They have consistently held a large portfolio of listings spanning the NOVA region on a year-round basis. As a Realtor, it’s nice to be able to show properties to prospective tenants even when the market slows down.
Tenants who rent properties managed by WJD must adhere to a vacating checklist upon move out which includes having the carpets and the entire property professionally cleaned. This helps to ensure the properties are ready to be shown to prospective tenants. Properties that are clean and “show ready” are much more likely to be rented and this makes my job easier as a Realtor.
Working with WJD has helped me grow as an agent and has also helped my business grow. They receive inquiries from prospective tenants and funnel those through a list of trusted Realtors. Among the inquiries they receive, many of the prospective tenants are qualified. Instead of having to hustle and “pound the pavement” to find my next client, WJD has the resources to facilitate that.
WJD has a smooth application process that makes it easier on the applicant and Realtors. They provide an online application which eliminates a lot of back and forth communication and corrections needed between Realtors and their clients. They also provide a YouTube tutorial that walks the applicant through the process. That has been a great tool to share with prospective tenants.
One of the best things about working with WJD is that I never have to wait until my client moves into the property to receive my commission check. The check is mailed once the lease is signed. Also, I don’t have to ask WJD for a copy of the signed lease. Once the lease is signed, I automatically receive a notification email and then I can download it at my convenience. Another great thing about working with WJD is the generous amount of commission offered. It’s 10% higher than the market standard amount.
Additionally, I would be remiss if I did not say a special “thank you” to my Team 1ntegrity teammates Darrone Suggs, William Restrepo, and Mikal Walker. We all love working with WJD and I owe my continued success to them because it’s truly a team effort.
