A Commitment to Local Community
A commitment to community has been a fundamental value of The Platinum Group, Realtors since their inception in 2005, and in countless opportunities since.
A collective love for the city of Colorado Springs and the families that shape it inspires the entire Group to contribute time and energy donating, volunteering and supporting local initiatives. They are not just about giving back to the community, but also improving it.
“Our agents are deeply rooted in the Colorado Springs community and our [Platinum Group] family is devoted to investing in this city and its people,” Dean Weissman, a member of the Ownership Team with The Platinum Group, Realtors said. “Our agents contribute time, talent and donations to over 70 local organizations; including local churches, non-profits, schools, and homeless shelters.”
(See below for a list of local organizations benefiting from involvement from The Platinum Group).
Firmly immersed within the heart of the city on a daily basis, The Platinum Group team has an understanding of the Pikes Peak region like few others. While each Platinum Group agent shares a commitment to strengthening the community, even more they cherish the people who make up this vibrant area.
“With over 80 percent of our overall business coming just from referrals, we’ve built home-town relationships that have allowed us to connect with wonderful people who do amazing things in this region,” Ed Behr, a member of the Ownership Team said. “Colorado Springs is chalk full of world changers and it’s an honor to be trusted to serve them during one of their most important family decisions.”
By caring more about relationships and service than the number of transactions they close, Platinum Group agents are excited about enriching the Pikes Peak region by continuing to be servant leaders in the community for years to come.
As one of their most recent examples of community interest, The Platinum Group, in partnership with Community Banks Mortgage, is excited to announce the launch of a professionally designed Conference Space located on the third floor of The Platinum Group building.
The room will be available to the agents for private gatherings, Christmas parties, Customer Appreciation Events and teaching / learning classes, along with Platinum Group monthly sales meetings and round table discussions. Preferred community partners and non-profits will be able to reserve the room for meetings and special events as well.
The remarkable new space was officially presented by The Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC with a ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening on January 11.
“We’re a loyal bunch, and we want what’s best for the local real estate industry and what’s best for families within our community,” Mike MacGuire, a member of the Ownership Team said. “With us, it’s not about more business, it’s about better business. I know every agent at The Platinum Group feels this way.”
“In an environment where our local MLS board has grown by 1,000 members in the last handful of years it would have been very easy to add more offices and hire more agents, but that’s not who we are.” Steve McFarlane, a member of the Ownership Team said.
“Our goal is to have the most productive and successful agents in the country so we chose instead, to invest in our existing agents. This space affords them a place to learn, grow and get better which results in serving more clients. The more clients they serve the bigger the footprint and impact they all have in our community, that is what we are most excited about.”
When local businesses give back, the impact can be long-lasting with wide-ranging effects toward building a stronger community, and The Platinum Group is willing to put their money where their mouth is.
