Without a doubt, our agents are the key to our success, and we have them to thank for these acknowledgements.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 28, 2013
Michael Pierson and Chris Eigel, principals of the prestigious Chicago-area real estate firm Prudential Rubloff Properties, were pleased to report that 2012 was a great year for the company with $2.25 billion in sales, representing a 30% increase in closed volume over 2011 sales and surpassing Koenig & Strey Real Living at $2 billion. The company also received recognition from two national organizations.
REAL Trends, Inc., a respected research, publishing and communication company that monitors the country’s residential real estate industry, recently ranked Prudential Rubloff #43 in the REAL Trends 500 based on closed sales volume for 2012. The 2013 REAL Trends 500 is a compilation of a nationwide study of leading residential real estate companies documented by outside accounting firms.
Additionally, Prudential Rubloff received the Gibraltar Circle Award from Prudential Real Estate Affiliates with a ranking of first in the Midwest and seventh in the nation in the national network in 2012.
Chris Eigel, CEO, attributed the firm’s successes to its agents. “Without a doubt, our agents are the key to our success, and we have them to thank for these acknowledgements. We support our agents in every possible way so they can focus their full attention on selling. The programs and services we offer are at the forefront of our industry’s offerings, and we continually invest in our website to maximize traffic and leads. More than 160 agents chose to affiliate with Prudential Rubloff in 2012.”
“Another key factor in our success is the luxury market, which is definitely one of our strengths,” added Pierson, president and chairman. “The upper bracket improved significantly in 2012 and our agents are extremely adept at working with luxury clientele. We also have the highest average sale price in the MLS as well as the highest productivity per producing agent among the top five firms – accomplishments of which we are very proud.”
Since 2007, the firm has continued to grow at a healthy pace, opening offices, acquiring firms and adding agents. Today, Prudential Rubloff has nearly 850 brokers and staff in 15 sales offices. Additionally, Prudential Rubloff has teamed up with extraordinary organizations to provide comprehensive real estate solutions.
