  18. 18. http://WhyFirstWeber.com About FirstWeber What some of our agents say about First Weber “After 19 years in the business, both at traditional and 100% concept companies, I realize the value in having a very strong agent support staff. This support has brought me more busi- ness and improved my bottom line.” LynnK. “Moving into real estate sales from the business sector, I knew how important management support was going to be for my success. It has far exceeded my expectations.” SamP. “With 3 kids at home, I needed to get going fast. Every agent in my office was helpful, and my manager was professional and cared about me being successful. I utilized First Weber’s mar- keting tools and now I have a very successful career.” Jeff Z. “I started my first two years with this company then moved to a 100% company. I felt so isolated, had no networking opportunities and no updated training or education. Not to mention that my bottom line was not good with all my expenses. I moved back to this company and I have a new appreciation for all they offer: the training, teamwork, awe- some technology and marketing tools give me more time to do the things that make me money.” SherryK. “Why First Weber? Because it is important for me to be aligned with an industry leader with a good reputation and a high degree of ethics; whose management style supports its agents through professional training, out- standing marketing, branding and a hunger to grow. its business the right way: through hard, honest work and exceptional service.
