NAI Wisinski of West Michigan had the privilege of hosting NAI Global in Grand Rapids this past week. NAI Global’s Executive Vice President, David Blanchard, and NAI Global’s Leadership President, Kevin Fitzgerald, ramped up a crowd of 60 plus brokers from NAI Wisinski of West Michigan (Grand Rapids), NAI Mid-Michigan Vlahakis (Lansing), NAI Farbman (Detroit) and NAI Harding Dahm (Ft. Wayne). The NAI Global “Road Show” is going across the continent to re-energize the NAI family of brokers and to launch its brand new suite of technology. NAI has been, and continues to be, the leader in technology and has landed the industries highest awards. NAI Global, who ranks internationally in the top five in the commercial real estate industry, continues its strong push with the largest Managed Network of commercial brokerage companies at 373 offices worldwide to date. The uniqueness of NAI is the global reach with local expertise. This global reach and local touch makes clients such as Hertz, Pepsi, and the US Post Office glad they have chosen NAI to manage their real estate.
The Road Show was a two day event which brought new industry tools and benefits to the newly merged NAI Wisinski of West Michigan. The former S.J. Wisinski brokers were astounded by the host of services NAI Global offers. “The Road Show really excited me about NAI,” Mary Anne Wisinski-Rosely explained, “Learning about what is available and how it can benefit our clients is incredible. I am really looking forward to implementing these tools!” These tools include REALTrac™, NAI’s proprietary web-based real estate management software giving the client 24-hour access to each and every step of the marketing process including all listing and closing documents. Another is NAI’s Opportunity Broadcast system, a global email blast system, which allows brokers to share and inquire about listings with over 5,000 NAI members worldwide. “During this tough economic climate, every tool we can offer our clients that increases their ability to move their real estate is a bonus,” says Kurt Kunst. “Our team is well prepared to manage the waters ahead. We are committed to West Michigan. Connected to the World.”
