The Lyon Crest Realty Mission
Lyon Crest Realty is a fast growing, medium sized real estate company dealing with commercial and residential real estate, and a comprehensive array of real estate related services. The mission of the company is to offer comprehensive real estate services to provide maximum convenience, efficiency, and customer care to our clients in a professional and comfortable environment. Lyon Crest prides itself on its directive for continuous improvement, constantly innovating and pioneering new management strategies, ideas, and concepts within the traditional real estate industry. Lyon Crest is also an active committee member on the Association of Realtors Education Committee. This allows us to take an active role in setting real estate education standards and to ensure that all members and agents are kept current on new legislation and forms so that members will always be prepared out in the field.

The Large Franchise
In establishing the Lyon Crest concept, we have tried to create an entity that combines the benefits of the large franchise along with the benefits of the smaller independent companies. Historically, the large franchises have offered management support, facilities support, and marketing support to its agents, but at the cost of high franchise / royalty fees, and marketing fees. These fees are in addition to lower commission rates that the large franchises normally offer. In addition, the marketing support that they provide is on the national level (this means that it offers good national awareness, but the question is whether the advertisement in New York and Chicago will help each individual agent in their respective local communities).

The Small Independent Companies
As for the smaller independent companies, their main focus is on offering higher commissions to offset the usual lack of management support, facilities support, and marketing support. They may charge their agents for every form, photocopy, telephone call, and even desk and electricity usage.

The Lyon Crest "Synergy" Advantage
Here at Lyon Crest, we have created a synergy of these two prevalent systems by offering full facilities support, management support, and marketing support, all at a very competitive commission rate. Agents have free usage of company facilities, conference rooms, desks, electricity, telephones, photocopiers, computers, faxes, forms, etc. Lyon Crest offers training programs for unlicensed and licensed agents, on-site practical training, questions & answers seminars, and an absolute open door policy. Thus, in the Lyon Crest Synergy Program, you get the best of both worlds.

The "Reimbursement and Company Benefits Program"
Another benefit that you will receive here at Lyon Crest is our "Reimbursement Program" which we implement to help our agents minimize their expenses. In this program, many expenses that an agent would normally face anywhere else, are reimbursed by the company to maximize the agent's profit and experience with Lyon Crest. With the "Company Benefits Program", agents and members are able to benefit more when they conduct a transaction involving the purchase or sale of the agent's own primary residence. We try to promote the well being of each and every agent working with Lyon Crest as part of the Lyon Crest family because we understand that a supportive, comfortable / enjoyable, professional, and team environment is essential in creating productivity. This productivity ultimately translates into a more successful agent, a more successful company, and a more successful team.

No Floor Time Required
If you think about it, who really benefits from the use of floor time? The company. With floor time, the company can do away with the need for receptionists and office staff. Although, many companies will advocate that floor time helps the agents because they are able to get their fair share of walk-in and call-in prospects. In actuality, the proportion of obtaining a call-in / walk-in versus obtaining a client through your direct marketing efforts and referrals, is very minimal. In either case, we have also addressed this issue. Lyon Crest implements an equal distribution policy where no one agent will receive a second walk-in / call-in until all the other agents have received one as well (with the exception of the next agent in queue being unavailable or if there are certain communication limitations per the request of the prospect).

No Quotas
Lyon Crest also does not implement any quotas (a situation where each agent needs to meet a certain sales volume within a specified period of time). A lot of companies feel that implementing quotas fosters internal competition and, thus, increases productivity. We feel just the opposite. By implementing quotas, what you have fostered are internal political problems where you now have agents worrying about someone stealing a client of theirs or whether someone is going to try to stab them in the back. In doing so, the agent now only spends 50% of their time servicing the client and the remaining 50% trying to protect themselves rather than devoting 100% of their time and effort to servicing the client. In the end, this harms the agent's reputation with their client and the chances of future referrals. Lyon Crest has thereby eliminated this issue and has established a professional, friendly, and team oriented environment.

No Staff Meetings
In addition, we do not believe in holding staff meetings just for the sake of holding them. There is no need to have all of our members and agents in the office just to make an announcement or to update everyone when all that can be done much more efficiently via our e-mail bulletins or via our internal mail system. The only time we will opt for holding a staff meeting is at the introduction of new forms or new legislation where numerous questions are anticipated. Then, it becomes more efficient to have a staff meeting since e-mailing questions and answers back and forth will end up consuming more time and effort. In this instance, holding a staff meeting will offer a much quicker response and a higher level of clarity.

Flexibility
More than 85% of our agents and members now work from home. Even though, the office and company facilities are, and always will be, available for member use (i.e. conference rooms, computers, fax, copier, etc.). On more than one occasion, agents and members have commented that they love how our system is designed because now their morning traffic are their kids and how their trip to the office is only a few steps away. Lyon Crest has purposefully designed this system to offer agents this unprecedented level of freedom and flexibility, while still offering complete management and training support, facilities support, and marketing support. With this system, there is no differentiation between part-time and full-time agents. At Lyon Crest, we understand that having a full-time job, career, or family in addition to your real estate activities does not mean you are any less committed and that one should not be penalized for it.

Management Support
Whether it is comprehensive training, or just a simple question / clarification, Lyon Crest Management will always be available, and no more than a phone call or an e-mail away. We understand that each person's needs, level of experience, and learning habits are different. Lyon Crest Brokers and Office Managers are dedicated to providing each and every agent and member with full and comprehensive support that is designed to meet their individual needs. Our training and support programs are always continuous, on going, and always hands-on so that agents and members can always feel confident knowing that they have the full support of the company behind them. Our doors are always open to our agents and members and we firmly believe that "the only inappropriate question was the one that was never asked".

Lyon Crest Realty Interview Question & Answer / FAQ
Upon reading the above information and/or the Lyon Crest Realty flyer that was sent to you, if you feel that we sound like a good fit for you, then you will want to continue onward and read our Real Estate Agent Interview document (Question & Answer / FAQ), as it will almost be like interviewing in person with a Lyon Crest Realty Broker. At Lyon Crest Realty, we know what the important questions to ask are in an interview process. After having talked to and interviewed many different Real Estate agents, below are the most relevant and frequently asked questions along with our answers.

A lot of times, Real Estate agents when interviewing with us are provided with so much information and facts during the interview that they feel overwhelmed because we are so up front with all the facts of our firm. By providing you with this information, you can read and re-read this information to determine the most relevant points as applicable to you (while not having to wonder if you took the appropriate notes if this were to take place in an actual interview vs. it being documented in this format). In addition, by reading this Lyon Crest Realty Interview Question & Answer / FAQ document, if there is a question that doesn't pertain to you or if you find the question to be irrelevant, then just skip to the next question.

Realize that very very few (if any) Real Estate firms will offer you this much detailed Real Estate information in a document to prospective Real Agent agents, but we do this for several reasons:

1.) As a courtesy to you in order to help you more quickly and efficiently decide on the type of Real Estate firm you may want to be affiliated with in the future

2.) We are up front with all of our firm's facts and if you join Lyon Crest Realty, we want you to do so knowing the full details

3.) To show you the type of firm that we are. When getting training and working in Real Estate under the Lyon Crest Realty umbrella, you can rest assured that the time and care spent in writing this document is reflective of the type of firm this is and its internal makeup

4.) We feel that those individuals who are attracted to and appreciate this detailed write up are most likely to be in alignment with what Lyon Crest Realty offers and its Real Estate business philosophy

5.) A Lyon Crest Realty Broker can go over all these questions and items with you in person or over the phone, but in doing so, you would have to take extensive notes and listen extremely attentively. Instead, by providing this information to you in this document format, you can instead read this at your leisure (as well as reread any important items). Then after reading this document, you can ask even more detailed and specific questions the next time you speak to a Lyon Crest Realty Broker.
