Our Values

Our platform strives to connect the most influential and successful realtors with the best business owners who need their real estate services.

Our Team

Nick Najjar, Franchise Owner

It is our mission to inform and inspire Realtors in the St Louis metro and surrounding areas. Our publication and website serve both a social side and a business side. They highlight top producing agents and gives you an inside look at their life as well as their business.

The publications are provided free of charge to all the top producers. The cost of the publication is covered by our advertising partners that you see in each issue and on our website. We do our best to screen our advertisers to ensure that they can provide the types of services that you may need or want as a Realtor and serve you and your clients with high professional standards. Please consider them when you or your clients have a need for one of their services.

Each publication you will see is unique to the real estate market. The publication will also reflect who they are as a community of Realtors. A typical publication will include social event information specific to the area, cultural and vibe of the city, upcoming meeting information, fun and free social events put on by Real Producers.  Upcoming developments, top standings, business information, pictures, personal stories, and articles, along with other information specifically tailored to the market.
Along with the magazine we will host various free events to bring the Realtor community together. This will include social events – free lunches, wine tastings, dinners out, and more. We will communicate to you the various events we are hosting through the Producers newsletter, social media, and emails. If you wish to be included please email us at Dianne.Collins@n2co.com. The events and publications are designed to increase social connections between top Realtors and affiliates so the best of the best can grow their businesses together. It is our goal that the events create a culture where there is no “hard selling” but a culture of relationship building on a more intimate level. I’d like to personally thank all of our business sponsors who partnered with us making the magazine free to all top producers, as well as the many Realtors that contributed to the first issue and upcoming issues that have made us so successful for over 6 years.
Please send all feedback, content ideas, potential stories, and local business that may consider being involved in this publication to Dianne.Collins@n2co.com. Our goal is to make this one of the largest, most well-known, and respected publications in the industry. We rely on you and our partner sponsors to make this possible. If you have an idea that will inform or inspire Realtors please send it to us.
