Team Diva Real Estate has teamed up with Seattle University for a Capstone Project. We had to apply but are are super proud that Seattle University Senior Business students selected our organization to study for their senior project. For the last several weeks we have been meeting with these amazing and super smart students with each of us learning about each others processes and thoughts on small business. In the end the students will deliver to Team Diva, a full Five Year Strategic Plan and ideas to help us improve our business. Amazing!
Team Diva decided to apply to Seattle University’s Capstone Program after a Twitter statement from a fellow fabulous real estate gal, Debra Trappen, came out from Coldwell Banker’s Generation Blue conference in Las Vegas. Debra commented that a key practice of real estate broker’s is not investing any resources into research and development. Instead they copy and replicate what other brokers’ produce. It struck our Team that this is not the healthiest way to go about getting the housing industry into a better place. In addition we feel that replicating other brokers’ practices does not improve one’s own personal growth. Our goal is to constantly improve and find better real estate processes that benefits our clients and the community.
The Seattle University students are working with Team Diva specifically to research what our clients need and how we can better connect with them. At the same time, how can we reach out to new buyers and sellers in a fashion that is strategic and makes them excited to be a Diva Dweller. Through this project the Seattle University students will help Team Diva develop a five year strategic plan and improve on processes. All of this is in an effort to ensure we are always connecting with our existing fabulous Diva Dwellers and bringing our best selves to everything we do as Team Diva!
Look soon – you may be getting a survey from our Seattle University friends. We would love it if you could respond quickly!
