After experiencing record-breaking home sales in March, John Daugherty Realtors are continuing to exceed its goals. March set the tone for the best month in a 45-year history with sales of $136.2 million this year. The month of April also proved to be an accomplishment.
The residential real estate rebuilding from the recession has played a nominal factor in the success of Houston-based real estate firm. According to John Daugherty Jr., the president and CEO of John Daugherty Realtors, the company hasn’t done anything different.
“We have been very focused on the upper end of the residential real estate market since 1967 and have stayed very focused on that market,” Daugherty said.
However, other factors that contributed to the increase of homes sales in both March and April includes Houston’s overall healthy business climate. For 10 straight months home sales rose and the average sale price reached an all-time high.
“We have the third largest port in the United States, the largest medical center in the world and a significant technology sector,” Daughtery said about outside influences to home sales increase. “The world has their eyes on the business success that Houston continues to have, no matter what our national or the international economies are doing.”
The company is currently on a major expansion. They will be adding to their support team for the sales associates with top quality sales people every month. Nonetheless, the increase will help surpass preset home sale numbers for the remainder of the year.
According to Daugherty Jr., the company sets an annual goal in December of the year before. “We expect to exceed our goal set for 2012 by in excess of 20 percent which would be 32 percent overr of last year’s sales,” Daugherty said.
