Our Story

Established 2003
We're building a better real estate brokerage.

In late 2003 Michael Bean launched Bean Group with a singular goal in mind – to build a better real estate brokerage. To that end, from day one Bean Group has focused on providing an exceptional experience for our agents.

We do that by focusing on providing exceptional services and support that help our agents succeed in today’s market: a strong brand backed by professional, contemporary online and offline marketing materials, transactional and technology support from highly experienced brokers and staff, and extraordinary training and career development opportunities for our agents.

But we don’t stop there. We deliver exeptional value by providing amazing commission plans for our agents, giving them the opportunity to maximize their earnings from their efforts.

You'll be exceptional here.

We understand what it takes to have an exceptional career in real estate.

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a relative rookie, we provide the tools and training to help you excel in the ever-changing real estate industry. You will rest easy at night realizing you have a group of experienced professionals supporting your efforts.

Exceptional Lifestyles

At Bean Group, we recognize and embrace the reality that for many agents real estate sales is a lifestyle choice as much as it is a career choice. Our company culture revolves around the belief that agents should have the freedom to work from anywhere, anytime, in a manner that suits their lifestyle and career goals.

Because we foster an entrepreneurial environment at Bean Group, our experienced, successful agents are happy to embrace the opportunity to share their knowledge with other agents. It’s an environment of continuous improvement that grows with you, no matter what stage you’re at in your career or with the organization.

We have a convenient network of offices that are a great place to meet with buyers and sellers – but we won’t make you drive there every day. At Bean Group you can say goodbye to outdated updesk rules and unproductive floor time. Work wherever you work best – from home or on the road – and we’ll support you with all the tools you need to be effective, including instant internet lead forwarding, transaction, email and document access, and calls that are immediately connected to your mobile phone.

Our client care specialists answer our incoming calls six days a week, and immediately route them to the appropriate agent, so you never have to worry about losing out on your own deals.

We never have office meetings just for the sake of having a meeting, but when we do have meetings, we do them right! We strive to bring something to the table that will help you move your business forward and make sure that your time at a meeting is time well invested in your career.

Exceptional Marketing

The real estate business is a marketing business: selling property requires marketing, and selling your expertise to buyers requires marketing. Our exceptional marketing will take your real estate business to new heights. We understand the Internet has had a profound impact on real estate marketing. We leverage the Bean Group brand on behalf of our agents by focusing on proven marketing activities that work in today’s always on, mobile environment.

Supporting Our Agents’ Selling & Marketing Efforts

The Bean Group brand and our marketing support can reinforce your listing and selling efforts with professionally produced promotional collateral designed for all price levels, from entry level to above average and luxury real estate price points.

Bean Group’s Agent Marketing Platform (AMP) provides the core marketing tools you need for success as an agent: CRM, lead management, e-marketing, as well as listing and website management tools, all in one convenient place.

Bean Group Agent Websites are complementary for all of our agents. We’ve been providing websites for our agents since 2006. We know what works, and just as importantly, what doesn’t work. Your turnkey, full IDX enabled website provides a proven MLS search experience for your customers and clients, and all the customers that you generate from your website go directly to you. Your site is fully customizable to you including your personal bio, client testimonials, blog, your sold listings, and more. We handle the back end so you can focus on what matters, providing great service to you customers.

Bean Group Platinum Collection, our luxury homes marketing division, provides luxury home specialists with a sophisticated marketing presence with the widest possible exposure to qualified luxury home buyers.

Exceptional Support

At Bean Group, supporting our agents isn’t a concept, or a goal, it’s a culture. From the front desk to the back office, we’re here for our agents. We invest heavily in the talent, systems, and services that support our agents’ successful careers.

We have developed a unique approach to brokerage management that is designed to provide excellent customer service to our clients and world class support to all of our agents, from the rookie to seasoned pro.

We are dedicated to maintaining the collegial feel of a boutique brokerage while providing all the services you’d expect from a national real estate firm, offering a level of world-class support rarely experienced in our industry.

Our goal is to help you meet and exceed your personal goals by helping you craft strategic business plans for your business, including business planning, client service strategies, and marketing plans that are in sync with the current real estate consumer.

Bean Group’s Managing Brokers are able to stay focused on helping you be successful because they aren’t distracted by the conflicting demands of recruiting, business coaching, or the general administrative tasks of running an office. Our centralized support and transaction processes allow our Managing Brokers to focus on their sole goal: to provide you with the transactional supervision and support you need.
