Beau Bruneau serves as Relocation Director at Roger Fazendin REALTORS®. What is a relocation director you might ask? Beau is the person in our company that works with third party relocation companies and corporations to move transferred employees into and out of the Twin Cities area. He helps to facilitate the process and helps all the pieces of selling or buying a home, while relocating, come together. Beau was an active agent at Fazendin, when the Relocation Director position came open. He enjoyed being a part of this company and thought it would be a good way to use his skill set. Before starting the residential real estate business he hadn’t been aware of the relocation industry and he found it enticing. It is an interesting field and allows him to wear many hats and juggle many pieces, which he enjoys!
Beau previously worked as a General Manager for a convenience store company for 12 years. He did a lot of problem solving and juggling in this position and it was a stressful job. While he is able to use his wide variety of skills in his current role, he says it is a much friendlier environment.
While Relocation Director is his main focus, because of the size of our company, Beau assists with many other areas as well. He enjoys and helps support technology, social media, special events, communication with relocation counselors across the country, and generating avenues of other lead generation. Roger Fazendin REALTORS® is also a part of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and this is a part of his position. It is a great advantage for the agents and our clients that we can help them with relocation anywhere in the world that they have a need. Beau oversees all of these referrals and connections to make sure things are going smooth.
Beau created an initiative in the last year called our Employee Benefit Program. This is an opportunity for companies to offer their employees an incentive when they are looking to buy or sell a home locally. By partnering with our company, the employee would receive a commission upon a successful closing. This is a user friendly program that doesn’t require the company much work, except to offer the opportunity.
In Beau’s free-time his passion is sailing in the summer. Favorite destinations include Lake Superior, Apostle Islands and Bayfield, WI. In the winter, he enjoys ice fishing. Year around his favorite activities are working out at The Firm in Minneapolis, good food and socializing! Beau is a local person having grown up in Elk River, MN.
His favorite thing about his position is working with all the varieties of people in this business and the diversity of the position. As he starts his fourth year in this industry, he is excited for 2015 personally and professionally and is ready to serve!
