The women of DOBI Real Estate stand out for many reasons. They know their many strengths. They’re in charge and they take command of their success. They believe in their power. They master their craft. They aren’t afraid to take risks and think like business owners. They realize they’re an asset to the company, their co-workers, their clients, and the community.
DOBI Real Estate exists to help every agent grow their business. When an agent is serving someone all day, they know that when they come to the DOBI office, they’ll be served by the DOBI staff. This is “The DOBI Difference.”
DOBI Real Estate opened in 2018 with a different purpose — to create a new and exciting path forward for real estate agents, their families, and their clients. CEO and broker Simon Thomas developed a fresh take on an industry he’s spent nearly a decade in by combining the innovative tools of marketing and technology with a luxury experience that has put DOBI in position to lead a changing industry.
It all starts with a strong, experienced, talented, and motivated group of professionals who understand they’re part of a team that supports one another to help complete the deal to everyone’s satisfaction. It ends with a “for sale” sign in the front yard. While a buyer or seller may interact with one agent, the entire DOBI team works for them every step of the way.
With dedicated and experienced experts on staff for marketing, videos, agent success, and broker support, there’s nothing an agent could need that a staff member isn’t willing to help with. It’s this kind of unique support that gives an agent the confidence to experience massive success.
DOBI agents know the importance relationships and collaboration play in this business. When agents do well, they’re celebrated by everyone. When an agent is struggling, they’re supported by their peers — demonstrating how collaboration can exist in a competitive field.
The fact that DOBI’s volume grew more than 700 percent from 2018 to 2021 further displays the importance of this collaboration and proves how successful it truly is when everyone works together.
DOBI agent Brooke Azimi identified the DOBI brand awareness as a key to her success. “If you want something to be authentic and organic, it has to be rooted in who you are or what you really believe,” she says.
These are the women who stand side by side, supporting and championing each other to help everyone achieve their goals and dreams. They’re the women who help create The DOBI Difference. They’re the women who move Detroit.
