November 24, 2020 (Canfield, OH) – We are often asked what type of traits a good Realtor® must possess. Having been in this business for over 43 years, we like to think we have a better handle on it than most. While some would focus on different sales tactics, organizational skills or personality traits, for over four decades, we managed to develop agents on three basic principles: honesty, transparency and integrity. They are three key elements that have created some of the best agents with our company. It is always exciting to see these traits in new agents, which is why when we find someone who possesses them, we get them to join our team immediately. So, it is no surprise when we found these three traits in Karl Reph, we worked to make him the latest addition to Burgan Real Estate group of agents.
Reph is a native of Berlin Center, though his family ties extend well beyond Ohio into Oregon, Florida and Tennessee. The core principles our company was founded upon were instilled in Karl at a young age through his participation in 4-H. In 2017, these traits and his hard work earned him the title of 4-H King. Professionally, he was looking for more out of a career that would enable him to put these characteristics to good use while helping make the lives of those he cares for and new people he meets better. He found the opportunity to start his professional journey with Burgan Real Estate as a licensed Realtor®.
“When I first started in Real Estate in my early 20’s, I did not know what I was fully getting into, except for the fact that I had a strong work ethic and knew if I was honest and transparent with clients, success would inevitably follow me the way it did other agents at Burgan Real Estate,” said Patrick Burgan, broker and co-owner of Burgan Real Estate. “Meeting Karl reminded me of how I was in my early days as a Realtor® and seeing the type of person he is and who he hoped to be become, it was very clear that this was someone who would embrace our culture as he grows as an agent and a person in his professional journey with Burgan Real Estate.”
As Karl embraces the work that lies in front of him to make the lives of his and our clients better, he does not shy away from building something from the ground up. Perhaps it’s because of his farming background in raising animals, or maybe it’s from his passion in detailing cars or carpentry in using his own hands to transform something into what he envisions it to be. His passion and pride in the work will ensure success will continue to follow him.
“As I start my professional career, I was searching for an opportunity that would not only challenge me but allow me to be in control of my path to success,” said Reph. “Meeting Patrick Burgan and seeing both the joys and successes he and Sue have both had early on in their careers in real estate is something I know I can achieve by being with a company that is as supportive and trusted as Burgan Real Estate.”
Karl, we know the same successes our agents have had by being a part of the Burgan Bunch await you as you begin your real estate career with us. Those three traits that guide the success of our company will guide you to a path to a better life and profession at Burgan Real Estate. We can’t wait to watch it happen together. Welcome to our Burgan family, Karl!
