'These incredible numbers show that when you know your community and listen to your buyers and sellers, awesome things can happen,' said Chris Pollinger, First Team Real Estate Senior Vice President, Sales
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2014
2013 was a year where the real estate recovery matured into a healthy market primed for solid long term growth and leaders like First Team Real Estate helped make that growth happen in incredible numbers.
While every county in the four county Southern California/Los Angeles market experienced double digit increases in homes sold and the prices they sold for, First Team Real Estate actually expanded its operations faster than the red hot market in key areas.
"Overall, 2013 was a blockbuster year for Southern California real estate, and First Team saw its sales volume actually grow faster in Orange and LA Counties than the housing market overall," said Chris Pollinger, Senior Vice President, Sales for First Team. "We completed 9,384 sales for $5.3 billion with our volumes growing faster than the overall white hot market by over 22.6% in Orange County alone. That is an amazing stat."
While a booming four county market was great for a lot of real estate professionals, First Team completed 9,384 sales in 2013 with its next closest competitor completing 5,388.
"We have worked very hard to provide agents with the training and tools to be true neighborhood experts, and have given buyers and sellers the same powerful tools agents use so they can make informed decisions," explained Pollinger. "These incredible numbers show that when you know your community and listen to your buyers and sellers, awesome things can happen."
Since 2010, First Team Real Estate has invested heavily in the technology necessary to bring it's industry leading Market Trends data analysis of property and the real estate market at the neighborhood level to the public at firstteam.com.
"Our goal is to always make sure that buyers and sellers feel fully empowered to make decisive, informed decisions," said Pollinger. "The communities we serve recognize our commitment to that, that is why they continue to trust us with larger and larger parts of this market."
