International Students Share Their Thoughts on SVN and CRE

SVN & the International Entrepreneurship Center

Our industry has a problem. The average age of a commercial real estate agent is around 60 — which is an issue as Millennials like me are starting to outnumber other generations in the workforce. And with SVN growing internationally, we wanted to know how the brand and industry resonate outside of the U.S. — so we partnered with a group of Brazilian students through Boston College’s International Entrepreneurship Center to find some answers. On Wednesday, July 29th the students presented their ideas on how to make the SVN brand and CRE industry more appealing to Millennials, from an international perspective.

International Insights: 3 Ways to Reach Millennials

  1. It all starts with the website. As tech-obsessed Millennials, the first thing we do when we hear about a company is Google it. So no matter the size of your office, you’d better have a good website. To the Brazilian students, a “good” website is one that is light on text and heavy on visuals. The students also pointed out that they need to identify with the content on the site. Quotes, testimonials, and photos of young Advisors can help solve this issue.
  2. Let’s talk money. A commission-only job sounds risky, and it certainly can be. But the students were comfortable with the idea because starting a company or similar entrepreneurial endeavors are basically commission-only until you have funding.  Due to language barriers and their just learning the business, the Brazilian students were initially confused with the SVN concept of “compensated cooperation.” Once they understood the benefits of splitting commissions it seemed to fit right in with their view of open and transparent business practices in a sharing economy.
  3. Emphasize the benefits of a franchise. Franchises are big in Brazil and can translate well in international markets. To attract Millennials to work for a franchise business, it’s important to highlight the upsides like training, tools, and independence that the franchise model can offer. As the Brazilian students said in their presentation, with a franchise “you’re on your own but you’re not alone.” You’re in charge of your own destiny, but the franchise system has your back.

Top 5 Things That Keep Property Management Executives Up At Night

Running a business can often be a thankless job.  When you couple that with the business being a property management company, the things that can keep you up at night are endless.  In January, the Sperry Van Ness® property management team conducted a survey of 100 commercial property management executives across the country to identify the issues with which they were struggling in their business.  The results overwhelmingly identified 5 issues that challenge property management executives in 2014.  Overwhelmingly, the executives surveyed stated that:

  1. We need a better pipeline for future business.
  2. We lack referrals for new business.
  3. We are not considered a preferred provider for larger or institutional landlords.
  4. We need more/better access to larger or institutional landlords.
  5. We lack marketing.

At Sperry Van Ness International Corporation our independently owned and operated Sperry Van Ness® franchisees tackle these issues and are able to sleep better at night knowing that they have a national brand with tools, resources, training and an entire community of real estate advisors standing behind them. Not only is Sperry Van Ness® a nationally recognized brand[1] with over 40 million square feet and 22,000+ multifamily units under management, our property management franchisees integrate seamlessly with our brokerage platform, which in 2013, participated in over $8 billion in transactions. This national platform provides our franchisees with multiple opportunities for:

  • Costs savings through our Master Insurance Program and other discounted services;
  • Unique offerings for your prospects and clients like SVNGreen for energy efficiency;
  • National account business; and
  • Expansion into brokerage through our SVN System for Growth™.

New Franchise Focus: Sperry Van Ness/KD Lanclos & Associates LLC

Damien Lanclos, Managing Director of Sperry Van Ness/KD Lanclos & Associates, LLC
Damien Lanclos, Managing Director of Sperry Van Ness/KD Lanclos & Associates, LLC

Sperry Van Ness International Corporation is proud to announce the addition of Sperry Van Ness/KD Lanclos & Associates, LLC in Augusta, Ga. Led by Managing Director Damien Lanclos, the organization specializes in the sale and leasing of a diverse range of product types including office, retail, land, and multifamily properties in both Georgia and South Carolina.

After many years in the pharmaceutical industry, Lanclos first entered the commercial real estate industry with the Sperry Van Ness organization in 2007, as an advisor based in Sarasota, Fla. In his first year with SVN, he closed several large deals, including a more than 18,000 square foot retail transaction at $2.85 million. He opened his current Sperry Van Ness office in his native Augusta, Ga. in 2013. Lanclos credits the innovative marketing tools and Monday Morning National Sales Call program with helping him to quickly advance his business.

Says Lanclos, “I was recently able to bring in multiple offers on a $5.9 million multifamily listing, thanks in part to the SVN tools that have allowed me to broadcast all of my properties to a national audience.”

Lanclos’ office assists clients in the second largest market services area in the state of Georgia. In line with the findings of SVNIC’s Top Markets to Watch Report for 2013, Lanclos says he’s seen a strong demand for multifamily investments, due to a rise in occupancy and rent gains.

Lanclos was recently accepted into the 2013 class of Leadership Columbia County, a program of the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce. The 10-month membership exposes business and community leaders to the opportunities and challenges facing the area, including economic development.

Lanclos received his Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Georgia and holds real estate licenses in Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida.
