Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
Jerry Pinkas, President of JP Real Estate Experts, was recently ranked as the #1 real estate agent in the MLS for the number of closed transactions for the year-to-date as of September 11, 2012. Pinkas closed 168 transactions since the beginning of the year. The MLS is used by thousands of real estate agents across the U.S. The average amount of closings for the more than 3,200 agents from the Grand Strand area was only 2.5 last year. Nationally, the average agent only sells around eight homes per year.
Pinkas says: “I am excited and humbled to have earned this achievement. The whole team at JP Real Estate Experts deserves recognition as well. With the market having taken big hits in the past few years, we are fortunate to have had such a tremendous year in sales. Our success is due to hard work, unique marketing tactics and significant market research. Our experts have a keen eye for the details that other average agents may pass by,” continues Pinkas. “We have a full staff plus a team of experts behind the scenes to give our customers the most current information and expert advice. We always want to be on top the latest trends and that's why our experts go to work one hour earlier, and go to sleep one hour later than their peers. That level of experience benefits our clients.”
Though there are still many Myrtle Beach homes for sale that stay on the market for longer than the average seller would anticipate, the Myrtle Beach area has also made significant strides in the past year. By using innovative strategies and techniques, JP Real Estate Experts continues to be a leader in the Myrtle Beach real estate community. Pinkas states: “Our expert real estate advisors compare price points, different communities, incentives, and recent closed transaction prices. On a weekly basis, our experts hold a round table meeting to discuss market trends, where listings are located, negotiation techniques, and compare closed transaction prices. In addition, our experts are exposed to more properties and plugged into the pulse of the market which is like knowing the inside scoop. Average agents may use only one source, but we feature many additional research reports and additional real estate databases.”
