In the first half of 2014, McEnearney Associates sold its properties marketed for a higher percentage of original listed price than competition. (By the way, we started tracking this performance in Northern Virginia in 1999, and we have sold our listings closer to list price in twenty-nine of the last thirty semi-annual periods. Since opening our first office in Washington in 2007, we have added DC, Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties to our evaluation, and we’ve topped this category every time in the last seven years.) Our team also sold its listings at an average sales price 30% higher and 20% faster than the market average.
We looked at the results of the thirteen largest real estate companies in the Metropolitan Washington area as measured by the number of listings settled.* These companies encompass a wide variety of business models and an equally wide variety of company sizes. This includes the two largest independent real estate companies in the United States and the local arms of the largest real estate company in the world. We know it isn’t the number of agents or the number of offices in a company that matter. It’s the quality of agents and the company, and their ability to deliver results for the client that matter.
Market conditions have varied widely in the fifteen years we have been tracking these numbers, from balanced markets, to sellers’ markets to the current transitioning market. And we have adapted to these changing conditions, outperforming the competition regardless of market conditions. Our carefully assembled team of the most productive Sales Associates in the Washington Metro Area makes all the difference for our clients.
