At this time of year, you’ll see lots of ads both offline and online announcing the achievements of REALTORS® in our community. We have a rather amazing bunch up here who work together, help each other out, sell each others listings, share information and generally, work hard every day of the year helping people buy and sell real estate. did you know that the real estate industry is the single largest employer in South Georgian Bay?
Our little REMAX office here in Collingwood opened back in 1984. It quickly became the most successful real estate office in the region and has just passed a remarkable milestone – over $1 billion in transactions and is approaching 10,000 transactions! That’s a whole lot of experience and success. I don’t suppose most people really care what awards or achievements their REALTOR® might have because they don’t mean anything to most people outside of the industry. Nonetheless, I will admit that it means something to me. We work hard all year to serve our clients to the very best of our abilities so being recognized is always icing on the cake. It’s wonderful to see that 73% of the agents in our office won awards for their achievements. Way to go team!
So here you go – my unabashed self promo… In 2014, I achieved “Platinum” status in the RE/MAX network. There is no way I could have done it without Chris – my assistant of 22 years and more importantly, my friend. Feels good to get this little medal but what feels better is having helped so many people fulfill their real estate hopes and dreams. Thanks for letting us be a part of it.
