With a fresh approach to real estate success, Steve
Zahnd is committed to finding ways for consumers to
experience a positive real estate experience. Early on
in his career, Steve realized that the real estate industry
was in need of professionals who gave reliable advice
to their clients, not just told them what they wanted to hear. Why risk such
boldness? He wanted results, not just contracts to list a property or represent
a consumer.
Back in 2011, Steve really focused on what he could do to ensure he had
the real estate success he desired, not only for himself, but also his growing
family. He went to work with a well-known real estate franchise, surrounding
himself with the best of the best. He wanted to absorb knowledge and was
submersed in learning how to give buyers and sellers the ultimate real
estate experience. He quickly realized success, receiving recognition that is
rare for someone so new in the industry to achieve, including: Masters Silver
Award (2012), and Centurion Award (2013).
As business grew, Steve’s abilities to lead others to better real estate success
grew, too. A single man’s effort turned into a team of seven agents who all
carried the same fresh approach to real estate success. Steve has doubled
his business year-over-year since earning Masters Silver in 2011. He then
took the next step to create a real estate environment that stands apart and
on results, and opened up Zahnd Team Real Estate Advisors, Inc. in late
2014. Prior to this change, the Zahnd Team would have earned the Double
Centurion Award if they did not leave their real estate franchise to open their
own brokerage, doubling their business once again.
Today, Steve focuses on adding only two agents per year to create a strong
team of experts that do not conflict with the company’s culture, along with
highly-skilled administration staff, which is essential to a successful real
estate business. It’s a very interactive process, one in which the entire team
supports each other, realizing that a strong team makes everyone more
successful. This is appealing to consumers who are seeking out the most
professional real estate agents to handle their transactions. It is also a big
draw for Realtors who wish to grow a real, sustainable business.
Steve makes his business and home base in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. When
he is not at work there is nothing he enjoys more than spending quality time
with his family, experiencing all the amazing things that Canada has to offer
culturally and in nature. Steve is also a coach for his son’s baseball team,
loving to use his leadership skills for helping to inspire young people to be
better at the things they love to do. During the slower real estate seasons,
Steve often takes advantage of the opportunity to escape the cold weather
and create special family memories in warmer locations; something that
many people can appreciate who live in a blustery winter environment.
