The newest real estate brokerage in the area, Thompson’s Realty, is officially open for business!
Our business model is simple: provide superior customer service in everything we do. That may sound hokey, but it is what Francy and I believe in. Our clients will experience unparalleled support and guidance throughout their real estate transaction. And beyond.
Leveraging the power of technology, combined with the cost savings associated with running a boutique brokerage unencumbered with the overhead of a large franchise, we will enable our clients to actually enjoy buying or selling real estate.
A virtual office (we found this best-reviewed virtual office in London), near-paperless transactions (as close as the state currently allows), and streamlined efficiency will allow us to pass savings directly to our clients. Uncompromised service is the rule, there are no exceptions.
If you are an experienced, tech savvy real estate agent interested in working for a progressive independent brokerage, please contact us. We are looking for a few amazing agents willing to work hard to make the future of real estate happen today.

Congratulations on the opening of your new brokerage. Much success to you and Francy!
Congratulations Jay – here's wishing you the best success!
The Phoenix Real Est says
Thanks Matt and Morgan! Breaking away from the Century 21 "mother ship" is a little scary, but the new-found freedom and flexibility to truly run our business how we think it should be run is well worth the stress.
Hang on, it's going to be a wild ride!
Congratulations Jay! Best wishes and good luck!
P.S. have you received my email from this morning?

Mark, Drew, Christoph, Howard, David, Greg, Michael – thank you all so much for your kind words. Francy and I truly appreciate the support all our friends have shown us. It really means a lot to both of us.
Christoph, not sure how much brain there is to pick, but you're certainly more than welcome to it!
Franchise Thompson's Realty…. hmmmmm…… We'd probably need to re-brand with a catchy name. Maybe something with a "z" in it… and Beta! 😉
Morgan Carey says
What took you so long? 🙂 – Congrats and good luck with your new venture Jay

The logo is lovely as well.
John Wake says
This is going to be more fun to watch than the Suns with Shaq.
"Yeah, I remember the day back in '08 when Jay announced the creation of Thompson's Realty and now look at it!"
Carl Minicucci says
Jay, if you bring half the energy and enthusiasm you have brought to the "PhoenixRealEstateGuy" brand to your new Brokerage, success will surely follow.
By the way, when you get a chance, you will want to rejig the title line (top left above your banner) in your P2 website which makes reference to "Century 21 Aware Realty".
The Phoenix Real Est says
Morgan, Rudy, Ron, Loren, Robert, Chris, Norm, Teri, John, Carl – wow, thats a lot more well wishers. Thanks so much guys and gal!
Carl – I've tried 4 times to change that line. It won't "stick"… I'm hoping it's related to the maintenance going on and I can change it tomorrow. Thanks for pointing it out! It's amazing how many places I've scattered my old brokerage across the internet. I fear I'll never find them all….
Eric Blackwell says
First off, congrats on the big move. Best wishes to you and Francy with this. You will do GREAT! The fact that you have scattered your old brokerage all over the net is a testament to how talented and effective you are.
Rhonda Porter says
John Schneider says

All the best!

The Phoenix Real Est says
Wow, thanks everyone! Francy and I truly appreciate the overwhelming well wishes!!
Thomas Johnson says
Congratulations, Jay! I see this move as a logical consequence of your unrelenting pursuit of the leading edge of RE Web 2.0 plus your intense focus on the customer experience. Your business model has launched you far beyond what most branded franchises can provide their practitioners. Not the fault of the brands: you are not pushing the envelope, you have shredded it.
My math is fairly simple:
Annual Gross Commissions less (Broker Split + Brand Costs) must exceed Annual Gross Commissions less (Free Agent Broker costs + Additional Overhead)
For Linda and I, the ERA affiliation pays for itself by a huge factor. Everyone's mileage may vary.
Again congratulations on your new venture. I see nothing but Shaw-sized success for you and Francy!
Lane Bailey says
Congrats. I hope you guys have a great time with it. My broker knows that the only way I'll leave is to start my own… and he is nervous…
Have a blast and keep up the good work.
Dru Bloomfield says
Add me to your list of well wishers! Congratulations on getting it done.
Laurie Manny says
Congratulations and best of luck! Great logo….
Laura Scheer says
Jay, This is very cool! Congrats to both of you. I really like your logo too. It is sharp!
Trevor Smith says
Jay – Best logo I have seen in a long time. Well done.
"near-paperless transactions" Awesome… very awesome.
Paula Henry says
Jay – Congrats to you and Francy! Best wishes; I know you'll do great!
