I'm an independent contractor, which means I work for myself. But I "work" at Coldwell Banker Townside, a real estate brokerage with offices in Roanoke, Blacksburg and Radford. I love the company, for a number of reasons, but today I learned some things that made me really excited about being a part of such a great group of people. (While Roanoke has some awesome agents as well, the statistics below apply ONLY to the Blacksburg office of Coldwell Banker Townside.)
Did you know ...
* the #2 Coldwell Banker agent in Virginia works in my office?
* Ten of the top 103 Coldwell Banker agents in Virginia work in Blacksburg (including yours truly - shameless shill)? As a point of reference, there are ~ 3300 Coldwell Banker agents in the state.
* the Blacksburg office of Coldwell Banker Townside is ranked THIRD in the entire state?
* In July, we closed approximately $29 million, or nearly 30% of all real estate transactions (the MLS reports $102 million in residential real estate was closed in July 2007).
Impressive to say the least, particularly when you consider that Southwest Virginia is not considered a hotbed of real estate. Oh, and have you heard? We're in the equivalent of Real Estate Armageddon according to some. I'm proud to be associated with such an impressive group of professionals, and excited to see what we'll accomplish as we continue to grow. Nice job, guys!
