February 2020 Top Producers

There’s an old saying in New England, “If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it will change.” Not surprisingly, we have a similar theme in this month’s Top Producers report. After a few short weeks, there’s a new set of numbers to contend with and we have undergone a massive reorganization.

At the top of our list is Patrick Wood and his team at Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties in Chino Hills, CA. Patrick is in first place with 15 total sides for the month of February. Impressive!

Coming in at second place is Mike Bowling with Help-U-Sell Mike Bowling in Yuma, Arizona. Having been with Help-U-Sell for just over a year now, Mike and his team have already been making themselves a regular feature on our monthly reports. This month, Mike’s total is 7.

Broker/Owner, Coach, and author/trainer of the Buyer Consulting Training Program, Jack Bailey of Help-U-Sell Greensboro and his team are in third place with six total sides.

Then we have a whole slew of ties so populated, it nearly violates our new social gathering guidelines.

Fourth place is a three-way tie between Help-U-Sell 951 Realty, Help-U-Sell Metropolitan, and Help-U-Sell Options Unlimited, all with five sides for the month. That’s 1.25 deals closed a week!

Fifth place is even busier with five offices closing four sides each.

There is much uncertainty ahead for all of us. Not just in the real estate market, but every market we know from the stock market to the corner market. Every day changes dramatically before our eyes. Our deepest hope is that the momentum exhibited here for February can somehow be carried over into March and April, to a degree meaningful enough to continue to support our businesses and our daily lives. 

May everyone stay safe, comfortable, and healthy. 

Broker Focus: Patrick Wood

Patrick Wood

Anyone who has driven through Chino Hills, Calif., probably recognizes Patrick Wood’s name. He’s known for his ubiquitous signage.

“The technique that brought me huge success in my core market was to start branding my name with the Help-U-Sell Office,” says Wood, who has owned Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties since 2003.

All of his staff members have magnets on their cars that have his name and the Help-U-Sell Real Estate name, and his main work vehicle has a wrap that stands out. “The real estate signs and open house signs [also] have resulted in huge recognition, and the community has responded amazingly well,” he adds. “I constantly hear how people see my signs everywhere.”

Of course, there is more to his success than signage. Wood, whose office has closed 54 sides so far this year, emphasizes the importance of offering full service and commission savings in attracting clients. “I found this to be necessary as other agents were trying to compete with my office by suggesting the clients would have to do all the work,” he says. “The full service leaves the client satisfied, which results in referrals, so it has been beneficial.”

For new Help-U-Sell Brokers, he recommends continuing the full-service concept through to the office setup. “[In our office] a team concept has been put in place, and it provides clients with access to licensed assistants seven days a week,” he says. “Service is big, constant contact is big, working together is huge. This is a crazy, intense field and having the support of a team makes it much easier and productive.”
