BFSIR Hits $1 Billion Sales Milestone, Sets Company Record
July 16th, 2014 | by The Update
Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty announces more than $1 billion in sales year to date for 2014. The July 10 milestone is the earliest in the firm’s 52-year history.
“This summer, we have seen tremendous strength in the North Texas economy. Hats off to the Dallas Regional Chamber and economic development committees, who have done a phenomenal job in attracting major corporate relocations like Toyota, State Farm and Google to the Metroplex. Our success is tied to this growth and the hard work and dedication of our agents,” said Robbie Briggs, President and CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
In the past year, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty focused on several areas of business expansion, including building relationships with international buyers, particularly in China; and boosting its relocation division to better serve the growing number of corporations moving to North Texas.
“Since our affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty three years ago, we continue to attract more international and national buyers to our listings, and thanks to our exceptional agents, we have been able to keep pace with the extraordinary growth of the market,” Briggs said.
Dallas-Fort Worth has one of the most robust housing markets in the nation, with listing prices up more than 8 percent year over year and average home sales prices up about 8 percent year over year. The pace of the market has led to a low inventory of homes for sale and, frequently, multiple offers on homes, making the job of a real estate professional more demanding.
In a market like this, buyers and sellers need an agent who knows which homes will be available even before they hit the market. The agents at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty have risen to the challenge – and the $1 billion sales milestone is the reward.
“Several of our top-producing agents have already surpassed their record-breaking volume from last year, and others have more than doubled their closed-dollar volume from 2013,” said Gene Taylor, Director of Sales and Agent Development. “We have agents who walk through every new listing and network constantly to find homes for their clients. They are truly dedicated, and we congratulate them on this success.”
