Founded in 2008, KAIZEN Realty is a full service real estate brokerage specializing in residential real estate. Having matured during the modern era of the real estate industry, KAIZEN provides a wide range of services in the Memphis and Nashville markets. In August of this year, the Memphis Business Journal honored KAIZEN for being among the Top 3 largest Memphis area residential real estate brokers.
What’s in a Name? The word KAIZEN means, ‘changing for better’ or ‘good change’ or ‘continuous improvement’. KAIZEN Realty strives to apply this philosophy heavily in their business and empower agents to make a radically positive impact on the industry and the communities they serve.
KAIZEN Realty represents the future of the real estate brokerage. The Internet changed the way buyers search for new homes and how sellers want to list their properties for sale. KAIZEN Realty provides the brokerage model ahead of the game with the look and feel of a real estate firm heading deeper into the 21st century. Technology and the internet enable a brokerage model benefiting everyone.
It’s estimated that at least 9 out of 10 home buyers shop online. This enables mostly paperless processes while also featuring a greater degree of consumer choices, less brick and mortar overhead, superb agent support, along with the business systems and staff in place to run much more efficiently and smoothly. It’s a business model that allows agents to have flexibility. As a result of this flexibility, agents are able to help in traditional and unexpected ways like helping homeowners on the verge of foreclosure and working with FSBO listings. The technology also adapts quickly as the market changes and goes through business cycles.
Along with full brokerage services, KAIZEN also provides state of art property management. Prospective tenants quickly and easily view what is available for rent online with details rivaling a sales listing but geared towards tenants and property owners. Quality photos, detailed descriptions, virtual tours, and online processes make complete sense in today’s thriving rental market.
New tenants save time and money when they already have a good idea of what to expect before physically visiting the property. Tenants make online repair requests, obtain lease information and documents, and make online payments. Owners review all activities related to their rentals, obtain tax documents, monthly statements, lease documents, and more.
KAIZEN has found that using the latest property management technology improves reliability, service, and also lowers costs. Modern technology provides a complete financial picture with full general ledger accounting. Key financial reports include the Owner Statement, Income Statement, and Balance Sheet. Online services feature viewing maintenance requests and approving work orders. Residents stay informed with online and email status updates.
The KAIZEN team is a close-knit group of dedicated and knowledgeable independent agents working together and with the full backing of the brokerage and staff. Agents have the tools and training necessary to help their clients buy, sell, or rent real estate while providing the smoothest transaction possible.
