SVN is built on shared values of responsibility, fairness, collaboration and agility. SVN advisors are contractually obligated and ethically committed to putting their client’s interests first by aggressively marketing to and cooperating with all brokers. Our co-brokerage approach — accessing more brokers and more buyers — outperforms the industry and is the cornerstone of the SVN difference. Creating maximum competition for each property translates to maximum value for our clients.
