Client Satisfaction in a Real Estate Business: A Survey Analysis

Client Satisfaction in a Real Estate Business: A Survey Analysis In order to understand the service component in the real estate business, an exploratory study was conducted. A sample of clients of a real estate firm in a midwestern city was surveyed by a mail questionnaire. Client perceptions of experienced service and their satisfaction with the service were examined. Five service factors were found to be related to client satisfaction: expectations, communication, relationship, effectiveness and knowledge. Of these, expectations had the most influence. Expectations refer to the role of the sales associate and the sale/purchase transaction. Analysis included implications for research and practice. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Business Emerald Publishing
