December Top Producer 2023

“December: A month of lights, snow, coziness, and feasts; time to make amends and tie up loose ends; finish what you started and make your wishes come true.” – Unknown

The last two sentiments of this quote, “finish what you started and make your wishes come true”, while words of wisdom for anyone, can be a juggernaut for the real estate professional looking analytically at the year behind them with an intent on improving the year ahead.

Wrap up, assess, plan, reconfigure as needed. Why? Because the market is always changing. The advertising spend that worked last year may not be working now. Mortgage rates change. Expectations shift accordingly. Those who anticipated difficulty and became the agents of change sustained the momentum to keep going.

In the last month of 2023, Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties in Chino Hills, California, made a bid for the top spot and takes the lead. A total of ten sides makes for a very satisfying close to this chapter.

For the rest of our report, you will be seeing double. It’s not you! It’s us! There are ties for second, third, fourth, and even fifth places here.

It was the most wonderful time of year, indeed. In second place: Jack Bailey and the team at Help-U-Sell Greensboro, and Debra Schmidt of Help-U-Sell Heritage Real Estate of Steele County in Owatonna, Minnesota. Both offices close out the month with six sides.

Michigan takes over third place with Mario Ferrante from Help-U-Sell Metropolitan in Woodhaven, and Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Masters in Port Huron. Each office brought four sides to end the year.

Three sides each snags the fourth place for John Powell at Help-U-Sell The Powell Group in Tucson, Arizona, and Nathan Douglas of Help-U-Sell Santa Maria, in Santa Maria, California.

Suffice to say, our Top Producers finished what they started this month.

Over here on the Gross Sales Volume Report…

Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties in Chino Hills,California, earns the double crown this month by being in first place on both reports. He closes December with nearly $6.5 million.

Seeing double once more, Jack Bailey and the team Help-U-Sell Greensboro, North Carolina, claim second place with $1.5 million for the last month of the year.

As close to a tie as possible in third place, is Kurt Steffien of Help-U-Sell Coast and Valley in Santa Ana, California. Kurt is in third place by a difference of only $39,500. We say that $1,500,00 isn’t a bad way to end the month!

December has the distinct honor of bringing everything to a close with the promise of a new beginning at the same time. Thank you to all who were there with us.

Congratulations to our top-producing offices for July 2014! It was a competitive month. We had an amazing five-way tie for third place.

1) In first place for the second month in a row, North Carolina’s Help-U-Sell Triad Realty closed 17 sides in July. Six were buyer sides and 11 were seller sides.

2) With a dozen closed sides, Help-U-Sell Santa Maria took the second spot. Broker/owner Ken Kopcho and his staff did two buyer sides, two seller sides, and four dual-sided transactions.

3) Help-U-Sell Direct Savings Real Estate, in Virginia, wrapped up July with 11 closed sides: three buyer, two seller, and three dual-sided transactions.

3) Help-U-Sell Greensboro‘s 11 sides consisted of five buyer sides, four seller sides, and one dual-sided transaction.

3) Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties had an almost balanced month, with six buyer and five seller sides.

3) Help-U-Sell Legacy, located in Layton, Utah, closed three buyer sides and eight seller sides.

Help-U-Sell Family Gatherings

Help-U-Sell Real Estate Training in Southern California
Several Help-U-Sell Real Estate franchisees from Southern California attended a training day in Irvine, Calif., in March.

Last week, Help-U-Sell Real Estate franchisees from Southern California gathered to network and connect in Irvine, Calif. The home office’s Ron McCoy led the group, which included owners of Help-U-Sell Advance Realty, Coast and Valley, Conejo Valley, Distinctive Homes, Flint Realty, Irvine, Riverside Realty, Santa Maria, Sunrise, and Wright Realtors.

One attendee raved about the meeting, saying it was full of “really meaningful content.”

If you missed the gathering, don’t worry. You can join us for our annual Success Summit this fall! Brokers and agents from the entire country will get together for a few days of learning, networking, and enjoying each other’s company.

Last year, we had a phenomenal turnout and, by all accounts, it was worth attending. One Summit-goer wrote about his experience, “Here we can give and receive; we benefit from the experience of others; we establish and renew friendships; we participate in a generosity of spirit evidenced by a desire to help everyone else. You can’t get it from a book. You can’t get it from a webinar. You have to be there.”

This year’s Summit will take place in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood. The dates are Tues., Oct. 14 through Thurs., Oct. 16. Please mark your calendars and watch for more details, including how to register and how to reserve your hotel room.

We want to see you in Las Vegas this October!

2) Help-U-Sell Select Real Estate, out of Eugene, Ore., also closed a dozen sides consisting of two buyer sides, eight seller sides and one dual-sided transaction.

3) In a three-way tie for third place, Phoenix’s Help-U-Sell Galleria Realty claimed 11 closed sides. They were almost evenly split between buyers and sellers, with six being buyer sides and five seller sides.

3) Help-U-Sell Greensboro also had six buyer sides, which makes sense given broker/owner Jack Bailey’s successful buyer consultation program, along with three seller sides and one dual-sided transaction.

3) North Carolina’s Help-U-Sell Triad Realty wrapped up October with two buyer sides, seven seller sides and one dual-sided transaction.

We celebrate our double-digit producers! We also want to acknowledge five offices that closed transactions on properties with sale prices of more than $1 million! Congratulations to Help-U-Sell Action Properties, Help-U-Sell Federal City Realty, Help-U-Sell Smart Realty Pasadena, Help-U-Sell Vantage Realty, and Help-U-Sell Westside Realty, which had two closings over $1 million. One was for $11 million, including furnishings!
