It’s official. #1 in Washington State and Top 50 Nationally

Well sometimes hard work and perseverance really pays off.  2006 was one of those years.  My fourth full year as a real estate agent and second full year with a team made us the #1 team / Agent in Washington State and #49 team nationwide against a backdrop of over 70,000 agents with Keller Williams Realty International.

What’s even more impressive is that we did it almost entirely on the buyer side of the business with clients we worked with from the Internet.  In Bellingham alone our team wrote over $30,000,000 worth of closed business and developed a strong referral network of agents around the U.S. bumping our effective closed business up to over $50,000,000. 

Last year we generated approximately 1200 leads online and turned 115 of those into successful sales.  The real estate industry normally has a close ratio of 1.9 – 2.9% of internet leads turning into closed business.  Because of total focus on the internet consumer and developing a strong franchisable service model our clients enjoyed a lot of services that most agents are unable or unwilling to provide.

This next year will be interesting.  We are going to transition our team into a boutique real estate office.  We’ve already picked up the name, BuyerTours Realty LLC.  Valerie Griffith will be our acting broker for a few months while I study to get my brokers license and I think it will be a lot of fun.  For sure it will be a lot of hard work, however definitely worthwhile.
