This stratagy of paring works well as I experienced this while working as an office operations manager for an automotive manufacturing company years ago. The start up company became a multimillion dollar company in less than a year.
My goal is to work smarter and apply what I know. Teams who are excelling in the industry know of this strategy. Unfortunately, in my neck of the woods I haven't located a team or individuals who understand that change is good and can be profitable. Thanks for the post.
We have a team and we love it. There are 9 of us total. One agent loves open houses, so she covers them every weekend for us. Another agent does websites, so he helps us all out there. Another is a professional photographer that takes all of our pictures, both listing and personal.
I can't imagine doing with without my team.
I don't believe that real estate agent teams will replace individuals selling real estate as numerous agents are very successful working alone and have their systems in place but teams sometimes have advantages over a single agent.
Agents can pool their various skills to create an effective and efficient well run team which sometimes benefits them on listing presentations. It also may help the team be more productive as each agent can perform the duties that they excel at leaving the other members of the team to perform the other responsibilities.
The old adage "two heads are better than one" applies here in some seller's eyes.
Best wishes to you!

One of the most successful realtor worked alone for years. He could close 20+ deals a year.
As soon as he realized a team makes his presence more visible he is a team leader. Yes, his team makes 7 figures a year (CA).
