The Whitney Agee Team is the #1 medium size team in the Dunwoody Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices office!
Whitney resides in Dunwoody and has built her team from zero to Chairman’s Circle Gold in a year and a half! Chairman’s Circle Gold is top 3% out of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nationally. When I learned about this, I was intrigued so decided to stop by and meet her. As I approached Whitney’s glassed in office, I noticed she was meeting with a beautiful young pregnant woman that literally appeared to be about to POP out a baby! I waited outside for them to finish their conversation and overhead so much sweet concern from Whitney as if she was herself, about to be the grandma (she’s way too young BTW!) As it turns out, the beautiful mom to be was Audrey Lane, and her C-section was scheduled for two days later. She had just stopped by the office to fill in her mentor on last minute work and plans for the baby.
Whitney seems to be in her element when helping mentor new agents. She says all of her team has great nicknames for her all centering around her being like their “Work Mom”. She’s relatively new at Real Estate herself, having obtained her license towards the end of 2018. She briefly worked in Fayetteville, Georgia where she accumulated $3.3 million dollars in sales during her FIRST year as an Agent. In October of 2019, she moved about 40 miles north to be near her family in Dunwoody.
Once moving to Dunwoody’s Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices office, she was excited and ready to meet new agents. She loves to collaborate with others and kept meeting agents and thinking how great it would be if they were on a team together. While based in Dunwoody, she had clients all over metro Atlanta and was so busy she was afraid many of the leads she collected would be lost. So at the very end of 2020 she approached Sally Moore, her boss/Broker, with what she was afraid would be a “crazy idea”. Sally loved the idea and the rest is history. Whitney’s team has typically consisted of the newer agents in the Dunwoody office. In 2021, her team accumulated $23 million in sales. They are projected to reach $50+ million dollars for 2022. Whitney is in the top 3% of a network of 55,000 agents worldwide.
Whitney’s role is to provide leads and guidance to the members of her team. She practices going through homes with her teammates and teaches them how to be educated on everything to do with the sales/purchase processes. She even helps them with their paperwork! The joy she experiences watching her agents become successful is extraordinarily fulfilling. In fact, Whitney mentioned she loves the hard and difficult situations and seeing her agents and/or new homeowners reach their goals after turning hard situations around.
I laughed when Whitney mentioned she may as well be a contractor. She apparently wants to know the ins/outs and corners/crevices of every single square foot of any home she’s working with. Even if there’s a tiny crawlspace, Whitney dives in to investigate and inspect. Why does she does she do this? Because she would never let someone buy a home that she wouldn’t personally purchase herself. In fact, she told me about personally finding a “wood destroying fungus” in the crawlspace of a home one of her clients wanted to purchase. Because Whitney found the problem early, she was able to have the seller get it fixed without her clients having to pay!
One of her favorite types of clients to work with are first time home buyers. She loves being a part of making their home ownership dreams come true. Watching the light bulbs go off in their heads when they finally do the math on renting vs. buying is satisfying. Whitney loves to share these happy experiences with her agents and their clients.
Not just anyone can join Whitney’s team. They have about 10 people now and Whitney suggested her team is best only for motivated new agents who really want to learn and be successful.
When I asked Whitney why homeowners would want to hire her team she responded; “We provide focus on whatever the clients’ goals are. That is the single motivator….working hard behind the scenes while focusing on and helping clients reach their real estate goals.” She really cares more about getting you in the right home than anything else.
