Best Agents in Texas

Summer 2015 Site Review

Position: Summer Real Estate Intern
Student: Economics Senior

My internship position was at a real estate office named Best Agents In Texas this past summer. At this internship I was given many responsibilities. One of the responsibilities was to oversee all transactions in this office. I make sure that the paperwork for all of the transactions was in order and that all of the transactions closed on time.

Besides handling all transactions, I also made sure to keep the company on track to meeting their sales goals every month. I handled the social media marketing for the company on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Interest, Google Plus, YouTube, MySpace, and realtor websites such as, Zillow, and Trulia. On those websites I was able to advertise all of the listings under our brokerage.

For the broker J. Renè Ward I completed all of her travel arrangements whether she was taking a one day trip to Dallas for a conference or a seven day vacation overseas. Renè was voted the Texas Association of Realtor’s educator of the year award for 2015 and teaches on a regular occasion all over the country. Before Renè would be able to teach a class, I had to put together all of her teaching materials and made sure to keep her on her teaching schedule since it was a hectic.

I was involved with Renè starting a new company J. Rene Realty under a limited liability corporation. This company is a referral company for real estate agents who don’t have the time or money to do real estate as a full time profession. I created the website for the new company and also established all of the marketing materials. And finally I have been coordinating and budgeting an office move for Best Agents In Texas to a new location on Burnet Road.While doing that I have realized that not only does it take $15,000 a month to run a real estate office, but the expenses for moving an office are costly as well. The move-out will occur sometime between late August and early September.
