Top Producers Q1, 2024

“In Winter, I plot and plan. In Spring, I move.” – Henry Rollins

In what is surely one of the weirdest real estate markets yet (and that is saying something), we have arrived at the end of  the first quarter. As ever, current extremes are not applicable to all markets. It’s safe to broadly say that homes are sitting on the market a bit longer now before moving into escrow. Otherwise, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of commonality between markets.

That being said, for many years Spring has been accepted as the “best” time to sell and buy a house. Statistics and reports support the notion, but other factors besides cold weather are in play. So Winter might have created some slow down, but between the March report and Q1, it does look like sales are potentially blossoming for the warmer months. So we move!

Jack Bailey

It is no surprise that Jack Bailey of Help-U-Sell Greensboro in North Carolina is at the top of Q1 Top Producers. With 34 sides, and a whopping 25 sides coming from sellers, there’s nary a dull moment.

Taking second place with 15 sides is Debra Schmidt of Help-U-Sell Heritage Real Estate of Steele County in Owatonna, Minnesota. The word “Minnesota” is a Dakota Indian phrase, meaning “sky-blue waters.” For Debra’s team, we take that as a sign of “the sky is the limit”. 

Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Masters in Port Huron, Michigan pulls into third place with 17 sides. The spring thaw and savings will no doubt motivate people to get ready to spruce and sell for Spring.

Fourth place is a tie between Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties, in Chino Hills,California, and Danny Kettle of Help-U-Sell Legacy in Layton, Utah. Lucky 13 was the magic number.

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.

January Top Producers 2024

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot” – Michael Altshuler

Whether the new year started with a grand display of sparkly fireworks or the peace and comfort of an early bedtime, the speed of time passing seems to get faster as we go, even though we’re issued the same 24 hours each and every day. Some days we achieve greatness in the form of organization, or goal setting and achievement. Other days it’s a miracle just to make it home to the sofa. But each day we are healthy, we are given the chance to try our best again.

Bringing us to our second inspirational quote:

Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go. They merely determine where you start.” – Nido Qubein

Every day that we get to make a new choices, we see if the outcome differs for the better. There are those among us that excel at determining where they start each day, and their success becomes ours to witness and learn from.

Jack Bailey

So begins 2024 with Jack Bailey and the constructive crew at Help-U-Sell Greensboro in North Carolina. They are already making a strong presence for the new year. Lucky 13 is how they landed the top spot. 

Only two behind with 11 sides in second place is Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Masters in Port Huron, Michigan. Off to another great start for Jeff. 

Third place goes to Debra Schmidt of Help-U-Sell Heritage Real Estate of Steele County in Owatonna. Seven is already lucky but with six of those being seller sides, we know folks were serious about saving. 

A triple tie for fourth place with five sides each is how we love to see progress. Richard Cricchio of Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties in Hawaii,  John Powell at Help-U-Sell The Powell Group in Tucson, Arizona, and Mario Ferrante from Help-U-Sell Metropolitan in Woodhaven, Michigan share the high five.

Top Producers 2023 Year In Review

Celebrate endings for they precede new beginnings. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie

After much media hand-wringing, mortgage rates that brought tears to our eyes (not in a good way), and a dramatic shift from sellers once eager to uproot to sellers waiting it out from fear of not being able to find a home elsewhere, thus resulting in even tighter inventory, we made it here to one report to rule them all.

Despite these obstacles, life, like real estate, eked a path forward; Because at the end of all good reasons to not sell a home or buy a home, people still need to do what they must. Whether moving for a job or helping Great Aunt Linda transition from a house to a condo, predictions or rates do not stop life in its tracks.

Our Top Producers soldiered on, tweaking plans or marketing spends as necessary, and renewed efforts to reach out to buyers and sellers, both old and new. Folks still want to save money where they can, of course! The experts next door at Help-U-Sell Real Estate were there to provide the same great service at a set fee, as we have been for nearly five decades. 

Jack Bailey

If there is anyone who demonstrates the resolve to find opportunities in each day, that person has to be Jack Bailey and the lively lineup at Help-U-Sell Greensboro in North Carolina. The seller sides tip slightly higher at 67, but adding up to 125 total sides for the year.

The men from Michigan take the second and third spots. 

In second place is Mario Ferrante from Help-U-Sell Metropolitan in Woodhaven, Michigan. The number 85 and the work of a trusted team was what brought him here.

Just two sides behind in third place, is Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Masters in Port Huron, Michigan. 83 sides makes 2024 a productive year to be proud of.

Fourth place takes us to Minnesota, where we find Debra Schmidt of Help-U-Sell Heritage Real Estate of Steele County in Owatonna. Debra’s office helped amass 69 sides for 2023, with sellers outnumbering buyers by nearly double.

Top Producers Q4 2023

“Wisdom comes with winters.” – Oscar Wilde

There is so much change in a single season, but none probably more dramatic or busy than winter. In less industrialized times, folks spent the fall harvesting and canning in preparation for the colder months ahead, sustaining the day to day activities until the time of growth returned. If one planned poorly, winter was harder to survive, but ideally that made one wiser for the next round.

Real estate cycles, and the committed industry professionals, share similarities to preparation for a long winter. They worked hard to create and sustain growth when it counted. When the outlook predicts a turn for leaner times, they conserve and plan for the future, so there are resources to rely on.

Jack Bailey and his team at Help-U-Sell Greensboro in North Carolina have made a great example of planning and preparation as a regular part of the day’s work. They come in first place for the fourth quarter of 2023 with 26 sides.

Second place belongs to Patrick Wood of Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties, in Chino Hills, California. His office matched first place in the number of seller sides for Q4, but come in six sides fewer for a total of 20.

We get a triple tie for third place!

Jeff Hedberg of Help-U-Sell Real Masters in Port Huron, Michigan, Debra Schmidt of Help-U-Sell Heritage Real Estate of Steele County in Owatonna, Minnesota, and Mario Ferrante from Help-U-Sell Metropolitan in Woodhaven, Michigan. All three offices bring in 15 sides to land third place for Q4.

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

In fourth place we found  Kimberly Zelena and her crew at Help-U-Sell Direct Savings Real Estate in Waynesboro, Virginia. 12 sides for Q4 meant an average of one a week!
