A Checklist for Greatness – do you have what it takes?

Long gone are the days of pitting one agent against the other in the hopes of creating greatness and success in an entire firm. In this blog post, Chad Zinda, owner, broker and educator at Metropolist, talks about the core values that makes Metropolist unique.

Over the last century, we have seen the shaping of a real estate industry steeped in inter-colleague competition and self-serving ambition. Personally, in my 20 years in real estate, I have lost count the number of times I have seen colleagues pitted against each other, at management’s whim, transaction after transaction. This competitive and intimidating culture has left me cold. Not only is it not necessary, but it is outdated! This is how it was done in the past. This approach to business doesn’t reflect our present day world where collaboration and support are key.

At Metropolist, we pride ourselves on a code of ethics that promotes our unique and collaborative approach to business, a culture that sets us apart. There are a few factors particularly that characterize our ethos. Consequently, our Code of Ethics has become our checklist for greatness. We have designed it to address every need a broker may have (whether they know it or not) as they make the transition into our innovative firm.

Metropolist Code of Ethics:


Dynamic/Accessible/Committed/Flexible/Supportive/Trustworthy/Creative Leadership Team with more than 60 years of business experience.


Broker Advisory Board allows for more voices having a say in the process and growth of Metropolist.


Exceptional education with an in-house real estate school.


A space that inspires! A beautiful office that you would proudly invite your clients to for more than just signing papers and reviewing contracts.


Personalized, customized broker marketing in a Ninja-focused environment.


Real estate can be a lonely business. A Ninja-focused environment means support in mentorship & nuts and bolts services in a collaborative culture.
