Beginning with the Carolina Gold Rush in 1799, enterprising people have moved to the Charlotte area to strike it rich. Today, local real estate is as good as gold, and Trade & Tryon Realty is living up to its namesake as the point of discovery. An entrepreneurial spirit drives the firm’s success, attracting like-minded agents and leading to golden client outcomes.
“Relationships are the core of who we are,” says Trade & Tryon Partner and Broker in Charge Mike Hosey. “All of our agents are deeply connected to the community and committed to helping clients reach their goals. We understand that real estate is an investment as much as a place to call home. As knowledgeable real estate advisors, we come alongside clients to help them make the best possible decisions, and we love digging out good deals for them!”
With a mission to love and serve others, Trade & Tryon launched in 2018 and quickly earned a reputation for exceptional service. But what sets it apart from other firms is its focus on providing value to clients and agents alike. “Our thought process from the beginning has been to address agent nerve points and make life easier for them so that they can focus on ‘wowing’ their clients,” Mike says. “First, we developed one of the most aggressive agents-favored compensation plans in the market. Next, we put outstanding lead generation and sharing systems in place while providing online leads and access to a national referral network. Then we built a list of preferred contractors and trusted vendor resources to share with clients. All of it is tied together with the support of our boutique firm’s services, like providing a closing coordinator and addressing administrative needs.”
In addition to being the Broker in Charge of Trade & Tryon Realty’s North Carolina office, Mike is a top-producing REALTOR® with his boots on the ground. He sold over $19 million last year and had 55 transactions. “I’m in houses almost every day, so I know what the market is doing at all times and what agents need to succeed,” Mike says. “We also understand that success looks different to each agent. Our goal is to meet agents where they are and help them get to where they want to be. So we offer one-on-one training, provide web-based training, and always keep an open-door policy.”
Trade & Tryon’s team of eight agents are all entrepreneurs at heart, and none of them have a corporate-job mindset. Mike’s son, Scott Hosey, founded the company and runs it with his father. ”Like those early gold rushers, we are a team of self-starters who thrive on independence and opportunity,” Mike says. “But we also have a strong sense of community here. We cover for each other when needed, call each other with questions, and help each other out.
Additionally, Trade & Tryon provides the systems and support agents need to run their business effectively and be successful. “My number-one tip for agents is to provide value in everything they do. At Trade & Tryon, we empower our agents with unique advantages to give our clients an exceptional experience.”
Poised to grow exponentially, Trade & Tryon plans to onboard 12 more agents this year. “We’ll continue to build our team with the right people,” Mike says. “It’s not about numbers just for number’s sake. We want our clients to feel like they struck gold after working with us, and nothing is more rewarding than seeing people happy after helping them reach their real estate goals and dreams.”
