Meet our brokers, one story at a time
Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty recently released a series of short films that profile brokers, focusing on the story of each individual in order to tell the story of the greater company. Known for industry innovation, RSIR engaged Chicago-based branding house Evoker, Inc. to produce the films, which strip away the mass-produced structure of a standard biography video and allow the agent to tell their personal story. There is no script. No storyboard. No two films are ever the same. Each week we will be featuring one broker film across our online platforms. This week, meet Brian Hopper.
