Aaron and Chris Krausert aren't your typical realtors. For one thing, the two brothers really don't mind if you don't buy a house from them. No, really.
"We are all about the next 20 referrals our clients trust us with," Aaron says, "because they felt taken care of." He is more concerned about making sure that anyone he speaks with feels supported, educated, and comfortable during their time together. "We don't focus on closing one deal for one paycheque," he says, and that “my clients tell me that they never feel pressured and always appreciate the full explanations and advice we provide while THEY are in the driver’s seat of all risk-related decisions." Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions a person will ever make, and both Krauserts really want to emphasize that for them, what truly matters is client empowerment.
Aaron says that there is a lot more to real estate than meets the eye. He studied business in university, in addition to the mandatory Real Estate licensing course through the Sauders Business School at UBC, to make sure that he was prepared for the career ahead. The brothers have also taken more than twenty knowledge-building real estate courses in recent years, saying that real estate is an ever-evolving field, and they want to do their best to stay sharp.
The Krausert brothers focus on the individuals' 10-20 year plan, rather than the one deal, in part because they know they will be ongoing support and source of information. "We are so involved with the Kamloops community," Aaron notes. Krausert was previously the President of the Rotary Club of Kamloops Aurora Centennial, is an avid TCSC CrossFit gym supporter, and a member of the Canadian Homebuilders Association. His brother Chris is a member of Toastmasters International, and also an active drummer who plays with several local groups. Both also enjoy hiking with their families in local parks.
Aaron says that when it comes to the Kamloops market, he doesn't think of himself so much as a paper pusher, rather as a tour guide: "Kamloops has so much to offer - we live here for the hot summers, mild winters, the lack of traffic, and all of the outdoor recreational activities." Krausert notes that he's found it to be a really great community for his young family and that he hopes to share it with others considering the city.
Both Krausert brothers love the city so much, they've set up Facebook pages for each neighbourhood, where people can share neighbourhood-focused information, such as community and family events, garage sales, and even missing/found pets. You can find their main Facebook page here.
