Highland Partners // Ahead of the Curve

Companies like Facebook are moving towards an open office environment in order to encourage a more collaborative workplace.

In 2010, Highland Partners opened their Piedmont office with just that in mind. The Partners ( Heidi Marchesotti, Adam Betta, Mindy Sun and Debbi DiMaggio ) wanted to create an environment where there were no divisions between the Partners and their agents and believed the layout would allow everyone to learn from one another while creating a more positive office environment.

In the beginning it was a bit surprising and uncomfortable to some, until they got used to it. But soon it became second nature. If someone wants to make a private call, there are two conference rooms in both our Piedmont and Montclair offices. Oftentimes you will find one of our Highland Partners agents out in front of the office getting some fresh air while talking on their cell phone. The office is so unique we find that people passing by will poke their head in mistaking our office for the bank next door, and upon entering they stop to look around, intrigued and impressed. The open floor plan and desk set up has really enabled not only our newer agents to listen in on conversations and learn from what they are hearing, but the seasoned agents also pick up some tips of their own. As one of the Partners, I too, learn something new. It’s a very productive, supportive and oftentimes entertaining environment.

Please stop by Highland Partners to see for yourself. Or join us for one of our yearly events; the 4th of July Parade, Breakfast with Santa or an art preview. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram. No invitation needed.

Interested in buying, selling or a career in real estate, give us a call.
