Mike Grbic said he wasn’t serving his agents or customers as he should.
So the owner of Select Homes-Mike Grbic Team has opened a west-side office at 734 N. Maize Road, near Central.
The new office, open about two weeks, is roughly 4,300 square feet and includes office space for a lender from WestStar Mortgage and an officer from Security First Title, Grbic said.
“We had a ton of growth the year before last – 74, 75 percent – and last year we had 25 percent or so growth, so we’d effectively doubled in size in two years,” said Grbic, owner of Select Homes. “We were kind of cramped at 13th and Rock. Moreover we were under-serving our clients and agents.”
Grbic founded the agency in mid-2009. It employs 25 agents and 15 support staff. Its main office is at 1445 N. Rock.
He added that the west-side office has helped the agency in terms of recruiting more agents.
“It’s helped with … our footprint in west Wichita,” Grbic said.
He said this year his agency is expecting to grow its business another 25 percent, by selling 1,100 homes.
“We’ll definitely get over 1,000 units,” Grbic said.
