Prudential Gary Greene Realtors at the Champions office received the No. 1 ranking in both units and volume during the third quarter for the central United States region of Prudential Real Estate & Relocation Services – a feat that has never been achieved before, according to Sharon Teusink, office manager of the Champions office.
Teusink credits her agents’ ongoing efforts to keep abreast of the industry as key to their success. “It is a different market now. You have to do more than take somebody in the car, drive them to a new home and wait for a check,” she says.
Teusink said she and her team have focused on training and ensuring they are up to speed on all aspects of buying property.
“Some neighborhoods have foreclosures and short sales, and the agents have to be informed on how to handle those complicated transactions,” she said. “Also, short sales aren’t always good deals and buyers are going to rely on a real estate agent who knows the area to advise them.”
Marilyn Eiland, partner with Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors, also praised the office’s top ranking.
“Sharon and her team are exceptional professionals,” she said. “They make it their business to know the market in their area and to offer excellent service.”
