We have chosen an image of an aperture to represent our company. An aperture is what brings an image into focus on the viewfinder of a camera. Our aperture is made up of 11 pieces to represent our 11 core values. These 11 core values help our team to focus on what truly matters, taking care of others and giving back to our community.
Prior to beginning his real estate career, our founder Kevin Johnson spent nearly 17-years in the hospitality industry and was heavily influenced by the Hindu faith that many of the hotel owners he worked with observed. In the Hindu faith, there is great significance on the #1 following other numbers like 10,001 and 100,001. The extra one signifies the beginning, not the end. For example, if a member of the Hindu faith is going to give $10,000 to a charity, they will give $10,001 as a sign that it is just the beginning of their support and commitment. The principal of +1 is at the core of exceeding customer expectations – delivering what the customer expects plus one more thing to demonstrate the commitment to their experience.
Of all the +1 numbers, the most significant of them all is 11 as it is the first one, the true beginning. That is why we decided to have 11 core values. Values are the cultural guardrails of any organization and our 11 lay the foundation for a company that is focused on our agents, team members, students, and customers.
