WK Real Estate and its unbridled enthusiasm for real estate.
Any serious endeavor requires commitment. Whatever your skill, you get great at it with a lot of practice. At WK Real Estate, everyone – from the leadership to the agents to the support staff – brings that commitment and expertise to work every day.
“It’s a common industry cliché that a Realtor® wakes up every day unemployed. And honestly, it’s true, there are never any guarantees in our business,” says Pam Metzger, Director of Corporate Services and Relocation. “But that’s okay with us, because each of us at WK Real Estate loves what we do. And the foundation of this is our sincere desire to help people and be of service to the communities where our clients, agents and employees live their lives. We love where we live, and we are passionate about doing everything possible to make sure that our clients do too.”
Metzger says that nothing is more rewarding than helping people navigate one of the biggest decisions of their lifetime, and it’s a privilege to be a part of it.
One facet of what makes WK Real Estate a great company is their unbridled enthusiasm for real estate. The most successful agents love the entire business of real estate. The longevity of the company and track record of agent retention is unwavering, no matter the state of the market and economy. “We live and breathe this business and the market around us,” Metzger says.
“Every real estate company claims that they provide great service, but exceptional customer service is about two things – knowledge and authenticity,” explains Mary Steele, WK Real Estate Executive Vice President. “After forty-one years as the largest independent real estate agency in Boulder County, it’s safe to say that our agents have the deepest real estate knowledge in the area. This includes impressive knowledge of the local community, real estate trends and data, and sales and negotiation.”
“WK associates and leadership have experienced the market during times of economic boom, decline and stability,” Steele says. “They understand the best strategies no matter what the market conditions. This expertise saves clients time and money and helps them achieve the best return on their investments.”
“We know who we’re working for… it’s you,” Mary Steele says. “We take the time to learn what you want, and just as importantly, what you don’t want. We’ll be your advocate and give you honest feedback. Our agents are busy because they are exceptional at what they do and therefore in high demand, but never too busy for you.”
WK Real Estate must be doing something right, because for the last 16 years the people of Boulder County have recognized them as one of Boulder County Gold’s Best Real Estate Companies. They have also been voted Best Real Estate Company and Best Customer Service in Longmont consistently since opening the office there in 2010.
It’s a point of pride for Dan Kingdom, Broker Owner of WK Real Estate. “Other companies can say they use the latest technology. WK proves it every day, with every client and every property,” he says. “Our internal systems make it possible for WK agents to communicate with each other and access valuable resources 24/7, all for the sole purpose of supporting their clients.
“Each property listing is not only syndicated to more than eighty international portals from our award-winning website, but also has its own dedicated website. Interested buyers can see all of the relevant details and unlimited photos, and can also send an inquiry or set up a showing with a simple mouse click,” Kingdom explains.
WK Real Estate is the only agency in the area with a full-time Digital Marketing Specialist. That means clients’ listings get consistent and focused exposure on WK-associated websites plus a wide variety of social media channels that are optimized for maximum reach.
Not satisfied to be a leader in just the local market, WK has developed a true global reach and the resources of an international network of the world’s most esteemed real estate firms. As the original exclusive and longest standing affiliate in the Boulder area, WK Real Estate has a longtime partnership with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International®.
This affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® helps connect clients with exceptional real estate resources at any of the network’s 550-plus companies in 60 countries across the globe. WK Real Estate was the first Boulder County agency to affiliate with this exclusive organization.
Since 1987, a full-time dedicated relocation department has worked with a long list of local and national clients and corporations, easing the transition of out-of-area moves for thousands of relocating individuals and families. WK Relocation is the largest, most experienced and one-of-a-kind division in the entire North Metro Denver area. It is consistently recognized for exceptional work, receiving the Crown of Excellence Award from Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®. WK’s own Pam Metzger is currently the Chairman of the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® Relocation Advisory Council.
Among the specialties at WK Real Estate is the marketing and sale of distinctive homes. As a founding member of Luxury Portfolio International®, they are the local leader in this exclusive network of the world’s most experienced and respected experts in luxury real estate.
WK agents routinely utilize Luxury Portfolio International’s mix of targeted digital tools and traditional print media to ensure that clients’ homes receive the most relevant and wide-reaching exposure, including on LuxuryPortfolio.com.
WK Real Estate is a global company, but they are closer than you think. They put it this way: “We are your friends, your neighbors, your community partners.”
– WK agents are walking, talking encyclopedias of neighborhood lore. Ask a question about a street and we’ll know what’s on the market, what sold recently, and the overall status of the neighborhood.
– Tell your agent what you like in a neighborhood and suggestions on places to look will come tumbling out.
– The best agents have experience handling (and preventing) the complications that often come up in real estate transactions.
LOOKING TO SELL?
– WK agents know what is on the market, what just sold, and what you can get for your money. These days anyone can look at houses online, but our agents know what lurks below the surface.
– WK agents understand complex transactions and are able to communicate things easily to clients.
– WK agents have exceptional references, excellent track records and reputations.
– Behind every WK agent is a group of professionals that can advise and assist with anything real estate or home related.
