Members choose the association to which they belong. Some make that slection because it is the least expensive; others because it is the largest.
The Grosse Pointe business model is based on two things:
- Providing the best member experience
- Working every day to make members more productive, successful and profitable.
The consumer cannot benefit from an association's size, or because an association saves an agent $50 a year. Instead, a consumer will benefit from the an agent that is properly supported, educated, encouraged and appreciated. This allows the agent to deliever the best consumer experience.
Properly supported by GPBR, our members can best help consumers.
