Today we’d like to introduce you to Jon Krebbs.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Jon. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I moved to Dallas and started my career with the Henry S. Miller company in November of 2013. I spent a year and a half there learning about all the different kinds of commercial real estate and all of the movers and shaker of the industry. In April of 2015, I joined Sperry Van Ness to focus on multifamily brokerage. That is where met my business partner (who consistently beat me out as the top producer) Paul Yazbeck. Paul had the crazy idea that we could build something together and I got on board with it. We formed our company, The Multifamily Group, in January of 2018. Since then, we have expanded our team to 10 brokers and had a blast doing it.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Thankfully it has not been too rocky. We have had some people come and go but I have heard that the best companies have people flow through them. In the beginning, I was doing a lot of paperwork, accounting, payroll, website, marketing, licensing, legal, etc. and as a result, my personal production went down in 2018. Thankfully I got a lot of that off my plate last year had the best year of my career in 2019. Now the guys on our team are starting to have success and that is really fun to be a part of.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about The Multifamily Group – what should we know?
We are real estate agents and facilitate transactions by bringing buyers and sellers together. Specifically, we focus on multifamily and sell apartment buildings, multifamily land, and portfolios of rent houses. Our transactions are in the 2-20 million dollar range. We specialize in customer service and pride ourselves on taking on challenging assignments and being accountable to our clients. What sets us apart is that we guarantee our work and are bound and determined to solve any problems that our clients encounter.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Grit. My second favorite movie of all time is True Grit (the new one) Commercial real estate brokerage is not easy. Rejection comes at you in a myriad of ways and there have been many times I thought about finding something else to do. But something inside drives me to keep competing and keep going, keep learning, get better and work on not taking the rejection personally.
