CLIENT TESTIMONIAL: “I was lucky enough to be connected with Shawn and the Opengate team early in my real estate career by another industry professional. At the time I was a solo agent looking to develop a brand and grow my business which was just getting off the ground. I had very little direction at the time. Opengate laid down a road map that was innovative for my field and I was eager to follow the plans they had suggested. I knew I needed to get out of the way and have always held his advice in high regard. Shawn and his team helped me develop a brand and has continuously offered new and creative ideas to help reaffirm our message and spread the word. Shawn is one of the key players that has lead to our success. The brand strategy that Shawn has helped us develop not only attracts clients but it also attracts industry talent and helps us cultivate a culture of success. Over the course of only a few years, I went from being a 7 million dollar solo producer to an 80 million + dollar team, and we are still growing rapidly. I attribute a very large amount of this to Shawn's giftedness as a brand strategist. By far, investing in building a brand with Opengate Studio has been the best use of capital possible. A few other fantastic things about the Opengate team — is they are very quick to get back to you, readily available, and not afraid to challenge your ideas if they don’t feel they will be effective. They are also a one-stop-shop, and can help you create or produce pretty much anything you can imagine.” — Samantha Hancock / Hancock Group.
