On the wonderful website On Purpose Magazine, I just replied to a response by a Keller Williams Realty Associate (but I have no way to truly confirm that they are indeed working for Keller Williams) and it seemed more promotion; but also the person indicated that, in a nut shell “all we do is real estate”; and I believe the antiquated models of the Old World of Real Estate are becoming increasingly difficult to survive in. I published this response:
We are more of a boutique brokerage than Keller Williams and as such have expanded our interests to finding sources and buyers of hard/physical commodities such as Iron Ore, Sugar, Gold, Silver & Oil. We have repeatedly come across the opportunities while working with investors seeking to sell/acquire large commercial real estate assets.
We also have no problem brokering legitimate business opportunities and joint ventures regardless of whether they are real estate related. We are more than simply real estate agents; we are trusted business consultants with decades of expertise in banking & finance, information technology, commodities, and energy as well as residential & commercial real estate.
The global nature of the market place has shown us new avenues for growth both personally and commercially speaking and in our view we can provide our clientele a greater scope of opportunities and possibilities by having this flexibility.
It was for this reason that our group came together to form Metro International Realty (and the DBA, Metro International Investments). Our transition to the new company/venture from TM Realty Associates. Inc is nearly complete and we are very happy that our fearless leader & commercial broker, Mark Moldoff, a 42 year veteran of real estate development and brokerage opted to partner with us and continue leading the group
