Once in awhile, we like to use space here on the blog to highlight some of the great things our agents at HouseHunt are accomplishing in the current market. With so much bad news regarding the market out there it sometimes feels like all you hear is doom and gloom. I think it’s important to remind agents that, everyday, agents are out there working hard and creating success for themselves.
And if they can do it, so can you!
Now, I’m not sharing these stories just to brag; there’s a method to my madness here. There’s a lesson to be learned from the following three stories and that lesson is that the high-end buyers are out there and they are absolutely using the Internet to find homes. As such they are also finding the realtors to service their needs. Are they finding you?
Gerri-Lynn Fives of Keller Williams Realty is an exclusive HouseHunt member agent representing several of our communities in the San Diego, CA area. Fives recently reported to us a huge closing as a result of customer that found her through HouseHunt.com.
How huge, you ask? The final sales price on the home was $5.025 million! You do the math on that commission.
For the record, this recent sale was only Fives’ first closing that came directly as a result of HouseHunt. This is the just the beginning for her!
On the other side of the country, Heather Davenport of Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc., who represents several communities in the D.C. area has been closing big deal with HouseHunt customers for two years.
“Just went under contract on another million dollar deal from a HouseHunt lead,” Heather said.
This isn’t the first million dollar deal from HouseHunt, and I suspect it won’t be her last. In fact, Heather shared with us that while she was closing the above transaction, she was also prepping to meet with a relocation buyer from HouseHunt this week who is shopping in the… wait for it… million dollar plus price range!
Staying on the East Coast, Broker associate Brenda Schofield of Heritage House Sotheby’s International Realty is a HouseHunt.com member agent representing multiple communities in New Jersey.
Like Gerri-Lynn and Heather, Brenda is also excited to be working with multiple buyers who are in the million dollar plus range.
“We closed the million and a half sale in Colts Neck in February,” Brenda said. “We are now working with five customers we recently received from our HouseHunt websites,” she said. “Their price range is between $400,000 and $20 million dollars.”
Of course, I want to wrap this up with a reminder that it’s not just our agents with million dollar customers who are doing well. HouseHunt.com has an entire nationwide roster of agents specializing in all price ranges who are putting in the hard work and, they too, are closing many, many deals.
