January 2021 Top Producers

Happy 2021, everyone! Welcome to the first Top Producers list of the year. After what was likely one of the most harrowing years in recent memory, we find ourselves front and center of brand new possibilities. We know the market is still searing hot in many of our Help-U-Sell Real Estate locations. With the mortgage forbearance legislation extended through the end of June of this year (so far), we may not see a large influx of properties for sale unless something else changes. So home sellers are still enjoying a robust and competitive market when they do sell. That’s where you all come in!

Jack Bailey

We start with a gentleman who topped our list for much of 2020. Jack Bailey and his team at Help-U-Sell Greensboro in North Carolina, made a great post-holiday leap with 12 sides for January. A year that starts off with four closings a week can only be a sign of more good things. 

Just one side behind in second place with 11 for January is Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Estate Masters in Port Huron, Michigan. Jeff is regularly the most prolific broker in his region of Michigan, often appearing in the top spots of the MLS. Jeff stays busy!

Third place is a tie between Debra Schmidt of Help-U-Sell Heritage Real Estate in Owatonna, Minnesota, and Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties in Chino Hills, California. Both of these hard working Broker/Owners closed eight for January. 

Fourth place is a three-way tie between Yasumi Davis of Help-U-Sell Golden Homes in Martinez, California, Mario Ferrante at Help-U-Sell Metropolitan in Woodhaven, Michigan, and Lona Murphy at Help-U-Sell Select in Eugene, Oregon. All three offices closed with five sides. 

We had six brokers close four sides for the month, so our list goes to 13 for January. We shall consider this to be a good omen to replace any triskaidekaphobia surrounding the number 13.

Third place shines bright not just with $2.3  million in gross sales volume, but the smiles of Michelle Morgan and her team at Help-U-Sell Real Estate Specialists in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. We are thrilled to welcome a new face into the top three this month!

Thanks to everyone for making a striking start to the year.

2020 Top Producers Year End Report

When you study enough Top Producer reports over the course of a year, you are reasonably confident exactly who will end up at the top of this list. The surprise comes in when the thing that inexplicably delights you the most – TIES – happens at the very top of our final Top Producer list for 2020.

Without further ado, we present: Jack Bailey and Mario Ferrante with 129 sides for the year. Legally, we can’t have a top three without these two (We’re kidding, of course).

Jack Bailey and his team at Help-U-Sell Greensboro, located in North Carolina, is our example of a well-oiled machine, fine tuned to perfection only when adjustments are needed. His process is so well rehearsed, not only do things turn out how he planned, Jack helps other owners achieve great results, too. 

Mario Ferrante of Help-U-Sell Metropolitan in Woodhaven, Michigan, makes things perfectly even with 129 sides for the year also. In 2019, Mario and Jack were neck and neck all year long with Mario’s team pushing ahead in the final moments and 2020 looked very similar throughout. Somewhere between these two gentlemen is likely the secret to all residential real estate.

Debra Schmidt of Help-U-Sell Heritage Real Estate in Owatonna, Minnesota, almost made first place a three-way tie, but comes in second place with a still tremendous 126 sides.  Debra and her team appear regularly in our top ten. What comes to mind when thinking about her is: consistency has its rewards and benefits. 

Third place is one more tie between Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Estate Masters in Port Huron, Michigan, and Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties in Chino Hills, California. Both of these gentlemen and their respective teams have cleared 115 sides for the 2020 year.

Because celebration is completely discretionary but highly encouraged, the numbers on this list “go all the way to 12” on this particular occasion (with apologies to Spinal Tap). With folks like Matt Kellam of Help-U-Sell Keystone Realty, closing 64 sides in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, and Danny Kettle of Help-U-Sell Legacy with 61 sides in Layton, Utah, it is worth noting that any franchise office that is closing more than one house per week during a tumultuous time filled with uncertainty is worth making joyful noise over. 

Cheers to absolutely every single Help-U-Sell Real Estate franchise office in 2020 who worked hard and kept the doors open.

Naturally, on our Gross Sales Volume report, we find Patrick Wood in the number one spot. For 2020’s final report, Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties handled $74.2 million in gross sales. Their hard work means they are one of our very familiar faces, and one we’re always happy to see. 

Richard Cricchio

First and second place on the Gross Sales Volume report is usually an alternating contest between Patrick Wood and Richard Criccio of Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties in Hawaii.  Richard’s team brought in $63.9 million for 2020. We’re thinking a Ti Leaf lei to celebrate prosperity would be an appropriate choice to show admiration. 

Jack Bailey

Jack Bailey and his team at Help-U-Sell Greensboro, North Carolina take third place here with $26.1 million.

In a time when it was easy to be disheartened by bizarre circumstances coloring our lives, affecting our businesses, separating us from people that we care about, impacting the businesses we patronize like restaurants and grocery stores, no one would be blamed for forgetting that it was still incumbent upon us to make things happen for clients. Even if it felt like everything was standing still at times, life was still moving forward. Differently, but forward. These reports proved you would not be hindered.
