Peter MacIntyre built large, commercial buildings for more than 30 years before he began selling residential ones in the Lansing area. The experience as a bricklayer must have helped. His growing team at MacIntyre and Cowen REMAX Real Estate Professionals
has been named the Number One Sales Team by the Greater Lansing Board of REALTORS in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
“I started doing short sales in 2006 when everyone else refused to do them because they were looking at the money,” says MacIntyre. “All those hundreds and hundreds of people I’ve helped over the years have come back to me in referrals.”
Hundreds is no exaggeration. Last year, MacIntyre’s team sold 212 homes and MacIntyre plans to sell more than 300 in 2012. With all of those sales, the team has had to grow. According to MacIntyre, nine new positions have been created at the agency in the last year or so.
The agent says his success came in part because of his willingness to learn from others who have been successful.
“I was smart enough to go out and get some real estate coaching with some of the best real estate agents,” says MacIntyre.
While he doesn’t want to grow his team too much larger, MacIntyre plans to continue to strive to be the best real estate agency in the area.
