Monday Morning on the Sea Islands

Brief video and photos of Hunting Island and St. Helena Island, just outside of Beaufort, SC by Lori Bee.

I had an appointment out on St. Helena Island this morning.   I love visiting the Sea Islands of St. Helena, Harbor, Fripp and especially Hunting Island.   It’s like something lures my soul out there to recharge.    And that is what I did today, just soaking all that beauty and peacefulness in.

Here is a link to just a little bit of history in a recent article by Travel+Leisure Magazine,  and below is a short video of my stops today.  But I’d love to personally show you a life you would love on the Sea Islands of South Carolina.  Just let me know where your soul is calling you to Bee at the Beach.

Why eXp Realty is right for me (and may be right for you too)

Explore what eXp Realty can possibly do for your real estate career.

I’ve been with eXp Realty a little more than a year now and am still loving it.   After years of being in management or even owning my own firm, I realize the significant advantages to this model.   It’s almost like I still own my own business (and I do own it in part, thru stock participation) without all the overhead and even more support.

I can go into my office meetings in a virtual world in my pj’s with my coffee.  I don’t have to fight traffic to commute to meetings.   This frees up significant time and makes me more productive.   And the networking and education there are great.  They have hours and hours of live training available each day.  I can pick and choose which is beneficial to me and for my clients.   There are thousands more hours recorded for me to search through, as well.

The virtual office world also helps me avoid the dreaded “office politics” I abhor and idle chit chat that wastes my time.   I love my colleagues, please don’t misunderstand.  But this model addresses problems with work environment that affects my productivity.   I think many have these same issues.  I’d rather have my schedule work around my clients needs, than my clients having to work around my firm schedule. It really is the “Amazon of Real Estate.”

Also, eXp Realty equips me with the tools and technology to succeed at my job.  I’m personally given 2 Kunversion sites (due to being in 2 MLS’s) and a CINC site to market to buyers and sell my listings.  Just one Kunversion site would cost an agent nearly $400 per month to purchase!  I’m also given access to Breakthrough Broker for my marketing materials, and  I have a Real Satisfied account that surveys my clients upon closing to get feedback on my services.   I have numerous files that are shared with me thru the Google Drive and GMail system that eXp hosts.   We also use ZipForms and Skyslope for digital contract availability and storage.  And these tools just scratch the surface of what all I’m offered.    I am truly a mobile agent, able to work from anywhere there is internet service.

One particular example of how beneficial that can be is when we had Hurricane Matthew hit our area in October of 2016.   I never had to worry about leaving an office behind.  All my files are in a secure cloud environment, with access from my laptop and phone, and I never missed a beat with serving my clients, past and present; even checking on properties owned by out of state owners upon my return using the tools I’ve been taught.

And I have staff support that is amazing.  I firmly believe I have the best Broker-in-Charge in the world, Jim Girard.   He is so professional and helpful, and the “most available” BIC I’ve ever known.   He uses tools like Voxer, the Virtual World,  to teach classes, and Facebook groups to keep us constantly informed, educated and supported.  So much better than that TL or BIC, that locks themselves in an office all day trying to ignore my questions.   And then there are the all of the technical and transaction staff in eXp World, that are always there waiting to help me.   So much better than that one admin who is overwhelmed doing paperwork in that office you have to drive to, that doesn’t have time to help you answer your questions.   This model rocks!

We now have over 4000 agents available across the country to refer to.   So nearly no matter where you go, I gotcha covered.  I’ve met with many of them “personally in the cloud” and they are great!  We mastermind without the expense of travelling to a conference or camp, on a regular basis. The culture is fantastic!

And last but certainly not least,  I have the opportunity to help others.  I don’t call it “recruiting.”   But I feel like the eXp real estate model addresses things for a lot of agents that other firms don’t.   We have a true mentorship program for new agents.   Sponsors support those in their downline.   And I love that I can make my own life better by helping others thru sharing my experience, encouragement, and knowledge.   And they reinvigorate me as well when they get excited about how exp is different.   It really is so much better than any other professional experience I’ve had.

We are growing fast  and our company is constantly adapting and changing, and well ahead of the curve in the real estate industry in offering it’s agents all the tools and technology to make the agents successful on behalf of their clients.  Isn’t that what you want?

Take a look at my career website at http://loribee.exprealty.careers for all the details.   It may or may not be what you are looking for.  I’m a firm believer that there is not a “one size fits all” firm for everyone.  But if I can help answer any questions for you, just let me know.  My phone is 843-505-3132.  I’m not a high pressure recruiter.  I simply like helping agents make the best decision for them.  It’d be my honor to help you take your career to another level, no matter who it is with.

Wire Fraud Warning Disclosure Form

Lori Bee provides real estate cyber crime info and wire fraud warning disclosure form for her SC realty clients.

It’s important to use an agent who is staying “on top of things”  and protecting you throughout the transaction.   I pride myself in providing that service and keeping my clients updated.

One recent development in our industry is cyber hacking combined with wire fraud.  In order to protect our clients from falling victim to this malicious crime that can devastate all parties in a real estate transaction, the South Carolina Association of Realtors, along with the South Carolina Real Estate Commission have created this form: Wire Fraud Warning Disclosure

Please read thoroughly, keep your anti-virus and malware up to date, and call to verify any request for funds.   My phone number is 843-505-3132.   I am happy to be of service.

Happy 4th of July from Bee at the Beach!

Reflections

Lori Bee reflects on many treasured memories as she captures children enjoying beach playtime.

Beach Memories

As an empty nester, I miss the days of ole, watching my children play on the beach.   This moment watching another family visiting Hilton Head Island recently, brought back so many memories of years visiting here with my own family.

I did enjoy it then.   And I treasure those memories even more now.

The Covenant

Photos of Pritchard Pocket Park and the Bluffton Covenant located on the banks of the May River, by Lori Bee.


I’ve lived in Bluffton 4 years and just this morning, finally explored  ” Pritchard Pocket Park.”  I’m so glad I did because the moment took my breath away. And I had no idea that Bluffton had its own Covenant. It so touched my heart. I will definitely be back.
