Big news in the real estate world: Kuper Sotheby's International Realty, one of the largest and most productive real estate firms in Texas, has cemented a smart new partnership.
The collaboration is with Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union, a financial company that is on a similar level with Kuper Sotheby's in terms of both reach and vision. One of Texas' largest credit unions, RBFCU has over $8 billion in assets, more than 55 retail locations, and over 720,000 members, with heavy concentrations in both San Antonio and Austin.
The credit union has a mission to help improve its members' economic well-being and quality of life, thanks to personalized service that goes way beyond a traditional banking relationship. This mission drove RBFCU to seek out a residential brokerage solution for its members, which will go a long way toward providing those members with an elevated level of service and access to the real estate market.
"With our experience and reputation in the market, combined with our shared values with RBFCU, our firm is a natural fit for their needs," says J Kuper, owner and principal broker at Kuper Sotheby's International Realty.
Starting immediately, Kuper Sotheby's will become the exclusive real estate brokerage partner for Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union members and their families. In a similar way that the real estate firm handles its relocation business now, it will work with RBFCU members to buy and sell real estate across central and south Texas and provide them with financial benefits and other support.
Unlike other relationships where Kuper Sotheby's is one of several brokerages providing services, this will be a true partnership between the companies. There will be equity exchanged, which solidifies the exclusive relationship.
In the coming months, a program will be built specifically to handle the nearly 50,000 RBFCU members who are estimated to be looking to buy or sell real estate in any given year, placing members with Kuper Agents based on their needs (property location, price point, etc.) and personality match. Ultimately, the goal is to provide excellent service and support to RBFCU members and their families, and Kuper promises that great care will be taken to ensure that happens.
"This new relationship is not focused on one sub-market or region, but rather on our entire company," says Kuper. "Virtually everyone in our firm, both staff and agents, will play a role in building out what will be one of the greatest real estate partnerships that our industry has seen."
For more than 45 years, Kuper Sotheby's International Realty has set the standard for both residential and farm/ranch brokerage. The company and its agents have been recognized not only for exemplary real estate sales, but also for service to their community, exceptional marketing, and innovation. The founders had a vision in 1972 to start a real estate company that did more than transact business, but focused on building relationships with agents, clients, and the community.
"In the same way that our vision in the past shaped our company today, our vision for the future will continue to set us apart from others and take us to new heights," says Kuper.
