The Olson Agency was founded in 1987 as Todd C. Olson Estate Brokerage, Inc. and although the name may be new, the professional full time sales staff is well seasoned. With over 50 full time agents and brokers, the average agent has 10 plus years of experience and is considered by their peers and clients as “Unparalleled” in our industry.
“You may notice Olson signs popping up throughout Los Angeles and Ventura Counties; it’s a pattern that’s just beginning”, states Todd C. Olson President and founder of The Olson Agency.
“Knowing the complexity of today’s real estate market, there’s just no way a part time agent / licensee can provide the in depth counseling necessary to properly market, negotiate and close one of today’s real estate transactions. In opening The Olson Agency it was my goal to see that when a potential client calls our office or walks through our doors, no matter which agent or broker they eventually work with --- they can be assured that they will be served by a knowledgeable full time professional. With the real estate market as good as it is today, everyone with a license thinks they can sell and in fact most real estate offices welcome as many licensees as they can possibly get with little regard to knowledge or skill. It offers the company the façade of size and strength which is perceived by the unknowing client as success and or professionalism ---- ‘it’s shear numbers’. Everybody has a friend or relative in the business and that’s what a lot of companies count on. The short term and short sighted approach, from my point of view, can be detrimental to our industry as well as dangerous for clients and brokers alike.
“Todays complicated real estate market requires a high level of experience to complete a transaction. This experience cannot be gained by merely passing the state exam or attending a weekend seminar. It can only be learned by hands on technical experience through years of practical application.”
“We’ve all heard the saying, ‘Jack of all trades master of none’, we at The Olson Agency believe that specialization insures quality performance and we’ve reenacted the good old American work ethic that many professions seem to have left behind: Customer service is an extension of the true meaning of a professional. Individual customer satisfaction is the main objective of The Olson Agency.”
Following in his father’s foot-steps, Todd has the privileges of working with many of the same owners and brokers that had worked with his father. “He taught me that a reputation for honesty and integrity is ever lasting and brings its own rewards… it seems no matter where I go or who I talk to in the industry, those who knew or worked with my father praised his honesty and integrity. It’s my personal goal to live up to his reputation. I truly believe that if an individual is honest, fair and has a strong work ethic, there truly is little competition and an exceptional opportunity to excel.”
“The entire staff at The Olson Agency has been hand selected and I believe their per person productivity is second to none. Each individual knows the importance of the whole and we all strive to meet the companies’ high standards of knowledge, experience & professionalism.”
