Ben Schachter is the Broker and President of The Signature Real Estate Companies, one of the largest independent real estate brokerage firms in Florida, and Co-Founder of TotalBrokerage, the only complete, cloud-based, customizable, software platform for real estate brokerages. Schachter has been in the real estate industry for 25 years and has done everything from answering telephones and filing documents to building and operating one of the most prolific real estate organizations in the nation. Currently, Schachter oversees 42 full-time employees, 17 offices, 26 brokerage companies that are all Signature subsidiaries, the firm’s residential brokerage, commercial brokerage, title, mortgage, school, insurance, m&a and senior placement divisions and more than 800 real estate agents. When he is not busy immersing himself in all-things real estate, Schachter spends precious time with his remarkable wife of 10-years, Jodi, their three incredible children, Max (8), Sloane (6), Brody (3) and their two pups, London (Golden Retriever) and Aspen (German Shepherd). He says that it is his beautiful family that makes everything totally worthwhile.
Schachter built his real estate empire by partnering together with a successful CPA and talented Attorney, who help to oversee the back-office administrative responsibilities of the flourishing organization that closes more than 5,000 real estate transactions per year. Frustrated with the limited choices and over-priced nature of real estate software, Schachter partnered with a gifted, architect-level Software Engineer, to develop TotalBrokerage. This revolutionary, mobile-optimized program includes countless modules such as CRM, Lead Management, E-Mail Marketing, Transaction Workflow, Forms Library, E-Signature, Agent Accounting, Reporting, Auditing, Document Storage, Calendar (IOS®, Android® & MS Outlook® Integration) and Email Communications. TotalBrokerage is an industry game-changer and has already been adopted by more than 50,000 users in under a year. The platform offers API connectivity, RETS integration and is total self-serve! Schachter’s pioneering “Agent Centric” culture that has been adopted by Signature is what sets his firm apart and according to a leading industry analytics tracking firm, Signature’s record-setting transaction volume is higher than over 99.6% of all other real estate brokerages in the nation. Signature’s unrivaled achievements are a result of Schachter’s leadership and the firm’s mission statement:
“Dedicated to achieving exceptional results for every customer by pioneering a dramatically different approach to the real estate business through a combination of innovative marketing strategies, comprehensive training and compliance programs, cutting-edge technology, a unique agent-centric focus, and professional and experienced leadership by a visionary Management Team.”
