Parkbench Mexico Trip 2017

One thing Parkbench is big on is staff incentives! And you definitely won’t see the staff complaining about it J If you work hard, hit your quotas, or better yet, over exceed your quotas, you will be rewarded for it. Whether it’s impromptu staff shopping trips, staff party nights at the bar, delicious staff lunches, or best yet, epic long weekend getaways to Cancun, Mexico.

Every Sunday many members of our team participate in a Sunday morning CrossFit workout that is organized by our founders, Grant and Amanda (who are both big fitness junkies and fans of CrossFit). While there’s a wide-breadth of fitness experience involved (some of our team members have actually never worked out, or haven’t worked out in years, while others are gym regulars), the workout sessions are a good chance for...

The Parkbench Team practices what they preach!

We advocate our REALTORS® — – get out into the community and meet local business owners and professionals! Interview them to find out their brand’s story to feature them on the Parkbench platform.
