The same applies to clients who purchase property and seek to furnish or upgrade.
Generally, the collaborative effort is expected to broaden the scope of services within the real estate industry and give greater flexibility to persons putting their properties on the market whether for sale or rental.

In the highly competitive industry, this relationship is one that can be expected to expand rapidly into other areas of involvement including the promotion of properties developed by the wider group and managed by the newly established relationship.

Technology is expected to play a key role in the promotion of the activities of the new relationship given the internet competence available within the group.
This new relationship should urge Brokers to join forces and do more at the co-brokering level. The future looks good for collaboration among Brokers. The Suncrest-Winbuild relationship will encourage collaboration with Brokers and Agents in the industry.
