For the seventh consecutive year, Seven Gables Real Estate has been named a Top Workplace in Orange County by the Orange County Register.
Seven Gables has been conducting business in the heart of central Orange County for the past 40 years.
There are companies that claim they can deliver more buyers and sell houses faster because they have offices all over the county and world for that matter. But the fact is that only a small percentage of central OC listings sold are done so by agents outside the area. And in the luxury market, that percentage drops even further. That’s because offices don’t sell homes. People who know the neighborhood do.
We likewise have the global spectrum covered so that buyers from all over the world can easily find our listings alongside everyone else’s on the top websites including Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow and others. However, it’s our exclusive affiliation with Luxury Portfolio International™ – the luxury face of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World that strengthens our market position even further.
Most important of all is that we’re locals who love living and working in the communities we serve. This gives our clients a perspective that is uniquely ours because we appreciate what distinguishes & differentiates the neighborhoods and residents we represent.
When reflecting on the last year and going through the height of Corona Virus Pandemic while continuing to hire, CEO Mike Hickman says,
“We have attracted more talent than we ever had in the past. Honestly, I think it has a lot to do with how you pay people, what your culture is like, and the ability to encourage your employees to grow. It’s about developing a strategy with them and then taking the action steps needed to achieve the result.
And you know, sometimes you pay for what you get. We’re open to paying more dollars to someone who’s talented, and I think that’s paid more dividends to us.
One of my biggest takeaways from the past 21 months is that relationships matter. Technology is merely there to support the relationships we have in this industry.” CEO Michael Hickman
