On July 27, 2012 I wrote this post about our team closing 100 real estate sides year to date (remember, there are 2 sides to every deal). At the time Amanda, team manager Amy Cartin, and I were stunned at the number of transactions and the pace. Fast forward to 2013.
On Wednesday, May 15, 2013 I’m proud and incredibly humbled to report that we closed our 100th side of the year.
While I was with my friends/sellers at an event tonight I asked them, ”Hey since y’all are #100, can I swipe a pic from Facebook and throw it on the blog?” “Of course, send me a link,” they answered. HA! When I saw the pic above I thought I’d have some fun, but may end up switching out the pic above for a photo of the house itself. We’ll see!
Last year seemed like such a big deal that we had a party to celebrate. If you remember, we booked The Oyster Bar and invited all of our 2012 clients, referral sources, lender partners, and closing attorneys to dine and drink on us, thanking them for helping us hit the first 100 so quickly. It was a big time! Well, seems as though we’ve picked up the tempo again.
While I’m not sure of everything that closed on Wednesday (it was either nine or 12 depending on how Coldwell Banker booked three of the buyer sides), I do know that 2600 Heyward St. in Shandon was at 9:30AM. At 11 we all met on Devine Street to close both sides of 11 Copperfield Court, which is in The Hamptons (Amanda had the seller, I had the buyer). At 12:30 Amy and I traveled to another law firm and closed 3 Worchester Ct. (also in The Hamptons). There ya go…100 for the year.
I need to thank Wilson Co. (97), Frazier Wilson (not related, I don’t think) (98), Drew and Tori Mobley (99), and John Eric and Barbie Fulda (100) for making Wednesday happen.
As you know Amanda, Amy, Thomas, and I love our jobs and try to make all of our clients proud. That said, we have a ton of work to do including procuring offers for anxious sellers and finding the right home for buyers. Good grief typing this makes me want to unplug this laptop and head to Midtown!
