When and How to Hire A Team

Take a look at Thomas Heimann’s video of when and how to hire and grow your real estate team!

Are you an entrepreneur or solopreneur? At some point, you’ll need to hire a real estate team to grow your business. But before hiring one, let’s define first what a team is. Quite simply, a team is a group of individuals working together to achieve a common pre-defined goal. There are two types of teams you can build: 

The first one is a traditional team. There are several characteristics common to traditional teams. It gains a shared understanding and purpose among team members, as distinguished from a group. It is also known as intact team in which experts work together and share a common path to achieve their teams processes and goals. In some cases, traditional teams are an entire department. Leadership is undertaken by a senior-level manager. New recruitments to the team are based on their technical skills and competency. Traditional teams mostly engage in described routine jobs.

Typically, the traditional team is the most common type of team. Other types of teams have evolved from traditional team designs. They are outlined by functional specialization that is often overlooked in terms of team development needs. In general, it is accepted that this type of team can operate without any guidance and support. However, support is significant when such teams form and becomes the ‘core’ of an organization in many instances. The core provides a very strong basis for ensuring overall effective organizational performance. 

The second one is known as a virtual team. The concept of the virtual team has been introduced with the enhancement of technology. In these teams, people perform jobs in a virtual work environment created and maintained through IT and software technologies. Most of the processes are outsourced in a virtual work environment. It is a more diversified team. 

If you follow these strategic types of team, no wonder you can grow your business far you could dream of.
