Butch set out years ago with his partner, Rick Teed, to change the principles of how real estate professionals can help their clients. It is this compassion for helping their clients achieve their long term goals that motivates them and their amazing team every day to out-hustle and out-work their competition. Prior to joining Compass, Butch, Rick, and their team were the first in the Sotheby's International Realty network to reach a billion dollars in sales. They could never have reached this level of success without their clients recommending them at every opportunity.
Butch believes that much of the real estate community continues to practice the old habits of baking cookies and just "showing up" to sell a home. For a long time, it was easy to make money in real estate by just playing the market long term. In 2001 and 2008, there were tremendous lessons to be learned about protecting your home from losing money. However, many of their clients made money despite the crashes of the market.
Spend one day on a tour with Butch or anyone else on his team and you will see a huge difference from other agents. Their value includes being "in the deal flow.” The TEEDHAZE team numbers are top in San Francisco and Marin, and they also have quality relationships throughout the Bay Area, allowing them to be the first to know about off market sales and pocket listings. Their clients gain huge advantages with this proprietary knowledge.
Butch’s goal, along with the entire TEEDHAZE team, is to understand that their clients, if served beyond expectations, will become lifelong advocates, building wealth in one of the best and safest markets.
