April Top Producers 2024

“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. April is a promise that May is bound to keep, and we know it.” – Hal Borland

Outside of “April showers bring May flowers”, it also tends to be the last gasp of winter. So when winter elements are still in play, when things spring back to life exactly is a mystery.  

The real estate industry has no doubt been beset by some interesting hiccups and anomalies, with interest rates and concerns about inflation leaving many would-be buyers still on the sidelines.  As such, housing market activity for April declined by 1.9% from March 2024. Similarly, existing home sales also declined by 1.9% compared to April 2023.  Yet the median sale price went up 5.7% from a year ago. Across the country, unsold listings increased by 9.0% from last month, and it’s taking four more days to sell. Yet demand still currently outpaces inventory. Strange times!

In short, April was a bit tough. But the outlook gets a little brighter every day. Builders continue to create more homes. Innovators are revamping commercial properties into affordable living spaces, and of course, tiny homes remain popular.

Jack Bailey

Sides are blossoming in North Carolina, rain or shine. Jack Bailey and company at Help-U-Sell Greensboro are still number one. With 15 sides for the month, they make their own rain. 

Sprouting into second place, Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties, in Chino Hills, California. Patrick’s team had seven seller sides for April!

Third place thrives with Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Masters in Port Huron, Michigan, and Kimberly Zelena of Help-U-Sell Direct Savings Real Estate in Waynesboro, Virginia. Each office brought five sides.

Fourth place is flourishing with Danny Kettle of Help-U-Sell Legacy in Layton, Utah, and Debra Schmidt of Help-U-Sell Heritage Real Estate of Steele County in Owatonna, Minnesota. Both end the fourth month with four sides.

February Top Producers 2024

“If January is the month of change, February is the month of lasting change. January is for dreamers… February is for doers.” – Marc Parent

Some days inspiration and motivation are harder to come by. Especially during a gray, overcast day where you may need that thicker sweater and an extra hot coffee to head outside to go and do.

The second half of our inspirational quote seems especially fitting: February is for doers. Anyone can utter promises on the eve of a new year. Taking goals seriously, with the plans and initiative to carry through takes real determination, because not every day turns out how you want or planned. Achievement means giving it your best as often as you can, trusting you will find your way there, or get a tad closer.

Here are the doers from February:

A triple tie in first place makes for a great game of Rock-Paper-Scissors. Debra Schmidt of Help-U-Sell Heritage Real Estate of Steele County in Owatonna, Jack Bailey of Help-U-Sell Greensboro in North Carolina, and Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Masters in Port Huron, Michigan, all share the top spot with six sides a piece. 

Second place brings another tie between two offices and gentlemen:Richard Cricchio of Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties in Hawaii, and Danny Kettle of Help-U-Sell Legacy in Layton, Utah. With five sides each, they are making every week count with a closing.

Kimberly Zelena, Help-U-Sell Direct Savings Real Estate

Taking third place is Kimberly Zelena of Help-U-Sell Direct Savings Real Estate in Waynesboro, Virginia. Her team closes February with four sides.

On our Gross Sales Volume Report, competition makes for interesting changes.

Richard Cricchio of Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties

Richard Cricchio of Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties in Hawaii, returns to first place with another month in excess of two million. This time, it’s $2.2 million! Island time is always a good time to sell in Hawaii.

Another second place feather for the cap of Danny Kettle of Help-U-Sell Legacy in Layton, Utah. The second month of the year paved the way for $1.8 million in Gross Sales Volume. 

Third place is where we find Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties, in Chino Hills,California. Patrick’s team put $1.5 million on the board for February. 

Thank you for doing what you do.

October Top Producers 2023

“You don’t waste October sunshine,” Katherine Arden said. That sentiment has a lot of well-worn similarly themed quotes it was likely predicated on, like “Make hay while the sun shines,” but you get the idea. When it gets darker earlier, we panic a little, trying to stuff as much into each day while we can because it feels later. Sometimes that nudge is what we needed to make one more effort so as to feel like we haven’t lost an opportunity to make a win.

Jack Bailey

One person who seizes every opportunity, and has continued to do so all year long, is Jack Bailey at Help-U-Sell Greensboro in North Carolina. This time, the team managed ten sides in the tenth month with an even split between the two.

Taking second place with seven total sides is none other than Debra Schmidt of Help-U-Sell Heritage Real Estate of Steele County in Owatonna, Minnesota. As the majority of her sides are from sellers, she succeeded in saving sellers a bunch of cash. 

Third place brings us a four-way tie with five sides of piece. (See what I did there?) It might be odd, but closing an average of 1.25 home sales a week means you are doing something right. Richard Cricchio of Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties in Hawaii, Ryan Joyce from Help-U-Sell Bakersfield Equity Savers in California, Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Masters in Port Huron, Michigan, and Kimberly Zelena of Help-U-Sell Direct Savings Real Estate in Waynesboro, Virginia, all share the spotlight.

May Top Producers 2022

“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” Although written many years ago, author William James could have been talking about the multiple hats worn in a day’s work for our Top Producers. Anyone who has joined our twice-monthly Power Hours over time knows that there is no magic bullet that brings all the home seller leads and attention. It’s more like an arsenal! While certain efforts realize more results in some markets, those smaller efforts also make a difference, too.

Jack Bailey

Making an enormous difference is none other than Jack Bailey at Help-U-Sell Greensboro in North Carolina. Jack’s team brought in 12 total sides for the very merry month of May, with an even divide between buyers and sellers. Very merry, indeed!

Jeff Hedberg and his team at Help-U-Sell Real Masters of Port Huron, Michigan, were just two spots behind with ten total sides for the fifth month of the year. Again, with an even split between buyers and sellers. Nature has such balance!

Third place is a tie with seven sides per office! Our first shared applause goes to the recently transferred office, Help-U-Sell SE Rita Ranch Realty in Tucson, Arizona, which is now under the care of our very own John Powell. Sharing the accolades is Walt Hippauf of Help-U-Sell Peoples Real Estate in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

Fourth place has three offices with six sides a piece. Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties in Chino Hills, California, Kimber Regan of Help-U-Sell The Smart Choice in Hanford, California, and Kimberly Zelena of Help-U-Sell Direct Savings Real Estate in Waynesboro, Virginia.

As predicted in last month’s Gross Sales Volume report, Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties in Chino Hills, California, once again takes the lead away from his primary competitor in Hawaii. Patrick locks in first place with $5.3 million in sales for May.

Richard Cricchio of Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties

Speaking of Hawaii, here is Richard Cricchio of Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties. May brought $5.2 million in sales for his team. The difference between first and second place this month was only $115, 750.  The saga continues.

Third place is our long time coach, John Powell of Help-U-Sell SE Rita Ranch Realty in Tucson, Arizona. He makes a splash into third place with $3.7 million in gross sales. What a comeback! 

Jack Bailey

Jack Bailey at Help-U-Sell Greensboro in North Carolina is just behind with $3.5 million in sales. The difference between third and fourth place was only $240,348!

Reports of the real estate slow down are everywhere in conjunction with the effects of inflation and higher mortgage rates. There is still high demand in many markets. Coupled with tenacity, smart marketing, and of course, home seller savings, we still have the makings for a summer sizzler.

February Top Producers 2022

With the chill of February still lingering around many of our Help-U-Sell locations, our Top Producers are staying warm by keeping busy helping people buy and sell homes.

Case in point, the number one spot for the second month of 2022 goes to  Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Masters of Port Huron, Michigan. With nine total sides, he eked out first place by one! Jeff and his team made a year-long habit of appearing in the top five spots during 2021.

In second place we have a tie between two other perpetual Eagles vying for the brass ring: Richard Cricchio of Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties of Oahu, and Jack Bailey and his team at Help-U-Sell Greensboro in North Carolina. Both fine offices are two very busy teams with 8 sides each. 

Third place brings yet one more tie with six sides a piece between Kim Zelena and her team at Help-U-Sell Direct Savings Real Estate in Waynesboro, Virginia, and Mario Ferrante of Help-U-Sell Metropolitan in Woodhaven, Michigan.

At the risk of sounding silly, fourth place is also a tie. We are not making this up! Lona Lassen Murphy of Help-U-Sell Select Real Estate in Eugene, Oregon, and Mike Bowling of Help-U-Sell Mike Bowling in Yuma, Arizona, both finished February with five sides. 

We won’t spoil the surprise for fifth place.

In third place is Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties in Chino Hills, California. His team made $2.4 million in sales. Patrick’s team is always creating sales in California.
