I am going to indulge in a brazen self promotional post since the end of the year is here, mainly to state the facts, since Ann tells me I don't stress the level of performance I, um, perform. So here are a few facts about how J. Philip did in 2010, both myself personally and the team.
10- My rank for residential transactions closed out of over 7000 EAMLS member agents. In other words, I sold more homes than 99.86% of my competition. I averaged just under 1 transaction side (.9) per week. I am proud of that, but prouder still of the job done for each individual client, with the great help from Ann and Ronnie, my two administrative goddesses.
45- My company's rank for transactions closed out of about 920 member firms of the EAMLS. That put J. Philip in the top 5% of the MLS for sales volume, outselling quite a few larger offices and a slew of national chain offices. Overall we had 81 transaction sides as a team, and I aim to make that number far larger this year as my guys take their individual games to the next level. But that is another post.
19-The number of licensees now associated with the company, which has grown in spite of the crummy housing market. We have a few more on deck who will be joining the team in early 2011. Half the team didn't sell a thing under our license in 2010- that is fine by me. Not everyone is full time or with the firm very long, but everyone made a contribution.
2- The number of branch offices now open since we put down stakes in northern Manhattan in March.
2- The number of times I have been elected as Vice President of the MLS after being re-elected last month.
514- The number of blog posts I have authored on this platform, not including my outside niche blogs. I do not think it is a coincidence that I have blogged obsessively and that we've performed well in 2010.
2010 was a superior year to 2008 and much better than last year as well. We've had our challenges, and I'll be blogging about how I did with my 2010 goals soon, but suffice to say I am gratified for the position the firm is in and the caliber of people we have on the team. Real estate agents are notorious for bragging, but I have tried to keep this as close to the banal numbers as possible. The best feedback I can get is that I have walked my talk.
