Taking 2013 By Storm

Taking 2013 By Storm

As we enter the New Year, it’s exciting to look back on my first blog post of 2013 and see that we exceeded our fiscal goals for the year. 2012 was for us, as I’m sure it was for many, a year of many changes for our organization. Someone recently told me that you’re doing well if you make changes to your business every two to three years. This could not have been truer for Compass Commercial. The space we purchased when we opened in 2010 no longer supported us – what a great achievement. In the past year, we also upgraded many of our systems. We hired great new people, and found some great new customers. Plus, we were blessed to watch many of our past clients expand their businesses – and to help many of these clients with their real estate needs as they grew.

As each New Year comes, we seem to be united in our goals: we’re all hoping for another year of great health, of increased wealth. But what do these goals really mean? At Compass Commercial ITRA Global, we have big plans for the coming year. To assure the good health of our business, we have brought in outside consultants in hopes of ensuring that we’re following the best practices of the industry. To increase our revenue, we recently hired Tom Mc Clain as our sales manager, and MaryAlice LeDuc in our brokerage division. Our goal for this year is to bring in two to three more agents to help grow our business even further. To meet our financial goals, we’ll require more people in sales – we need more folks on the ground.

We’re confident that 2013 will bring great things for Compass Commercial ITRA Global – and here’s hoping it brings great things for you as well! Tell us: what goals have you set for the New Year? Here’s to keeping the resolutions we make, and surpassing our goals!
