As a new business, or even one that’s been around the block…Where can you get great business advice?
Great business advice is a valuable commodity, especially in the small business and franchising world. A hallmark of a strong company with independently owned offices is that it uses a “team” approach to set goals and define strategic direction in the best interest of its customers. Real Property Management’s team includes an Advisory Council, comprised of 12 franchise owners who represent our 270+ offices around the country offering franchise business advice to our other franchise owners. This diverse group offers input across a wide spectrum of geography, office size, and experience.
The council’s mission is to maximize the value of Real Property Management through ongoing cooperation, improvement and strategic growth.
Current Advisory Council Members:
Caleb Page – Boston
Marcus Phillips – Palm Beach County
Darus Trutna – Humboldt
James Campbell – Midlands
Josh Kattenberg – Express
Kassandra Taggart – Last Frontier
Kathryn Guthrie – Sac-Metro
Kyle Thompson – Coast
Randall Averitte – Pinnacle
Ryan Kauffman – of the Triad
The group meets periodically to discuss business issues such as marketing and day-to-day operations, to help franchisees run their business more effectively and deliver exceptional service. They also act as a sounding board for new ideas, tools and programs, and serve as a valuable liaison to the franchisees they represent giving insight and valuable business advice.
“Having an Advisory Council is critical to the success of our organization,” says Don Lawby, President of Real Property Management. They provide input from their perspective, which assists us in defining our strategic direction, prioritizing projects, and delivering the best experience to our clients. Having representation from our franchisee base is truly a way to assist in the building of a great organization with a win-win for all philosophy.”
