Recognizing Our Real Estate Agents for Their Outstanding Service
Active Adults Realty is proud to recognize our Shining Star Award Winners for 2017. The Active Adults Realty Annual Shining Star Awards recognize the exceptional work in real estate and client service provided by the real estate agents of the Active Adults Realty Team.
It is very important to recognize our Agents/REALTORS® for their achievements in the local real estate market. In 2017, we generated $73M in sales, 32% more than the previous year and we closed 215 transactions. It was another excellent year for real estate all over Delaware and for Active Adults Realty.
Active Adults Realty Shining Stars for 2017:
Outstanding Contribution: Audrey Hammond
A new addition to our team in 2017 is Audrey Hammond as our Team Coordinator. In this position, Audrey is often the first point of contact with our new prospects. As a result, we can handle more leads in a timely manner which has allowed all of our agents to be more productive. For 2017, Audrey has earned the Shining Star Award for her “Outstanding Contribution” to the Active Adults Realty Team and to all of our clients.
The Agent responsible for the Highest Overall Dollar Volume for 2017 is once again Al Willis with over $11.9M in gross real estate sales; $10.9M of which came from his work with Buyer clients. Since joining Active Adults Realty in 2012, Al has been a consistent top performer every year.
Bill Bell, Associate Broker/Co-Owner, was responsible for the Most Listings in 2017 as well as the most Listing Revenue. Bill has been responsible for growing our market in Northern Delaware, especially in the Middletown area. As a result, we have added 3 more agents in 2017 that will focus on the Middletown area as well as Kent County and the rest of New Castle County.
Congratulations to Debbie Shearer who closed 39 transactions in 2017 compared to 28 transactions in 2016. Debbie also joined Active Adults Realty in 2012 and has always demonstrated a strong work ethic and concern for her clients’ well-being.
One of the most important measurements in today’s real estate business is the Conversion Ratio. In today’s fast-paced internet-savvy world, an agent must be able to establish rapport with prospects immediately over the phone or via email and text communications. Converting an internet lead into a client and then into a sale is critical to your success as a REALTOR®. We measured the conversion ratio by comparing Bob’s 2017 contracts or closed sales against the total number of leads that he received from us in 2017. Congratulations Bob!
Mike Malone joined Active Adults Realty in 2016 but he is already one of our most consistent and best agents. Mike came to us with an excellent business background, years in construction and property management.
Our 2017 Rookie of the Year is Ron Mercante. Ron just joined Active Adults Realty in the summer of 2017, but he has already demonstrated his willingness to do what it takes to become a professional REALTOR® and represent his clients well. We look forward to Ron’s success!
