The nice thing about numbers is that they rarely lie.

If you are a Buyer or Seller, or intend on sometime being a Buyer or Seller, or simply enjoy staying up on the Real Estate market, you will find the following information extremely intriguing.

I am going to take a very brief moment to share with you some information that may seem a bit like "bragging", but it.........ok, it is.

-Total WCBR (Washington County Board) Closed units (Single Family Residence & Townhomes/Condos) in 2007 - 5459
-Total WCBR Closed units (Single Family Residence & Townhomes/Condos) 2008 - 3759
Closed units from 2007 to 2008 in Washington County were down 31%
-Total Keller Williams closed units 2007-335
-Total Keller Williams closed units 2008-417
Closed units for Keller Williams Realty St. George were up 19.6%

Yes, my sentiments exactly (get it? Holy.....Cow...?)

But before I give our local office too much credit, I should point out this headline that  I just saw today:  "Keller Williams Realty Bucks National Business Trends During the Toughest Real Estate Market on Record."   Click on that link and you can read it for yourself!
Any of my clients and friends will tell you that I have never been one to encourage a Buyer or Seller to select any one Agent due to their affiliation with a specific brokerage. The reason for that is quite simple: you could hire a really incredible agent at "Uncle Bob's Backwoods Realty" or get a really crappy agent from From ReMax, Coldwell Banker or, of course, Keller Williams Realty.
That said, these figure are tremendous and say something about this company considering the overriding economic conditions in our country.
If you wonder "why" we have achieved this, I can only attribute it to one thing: EDUCATION. I simplly have not seen another local or national real estate firm that places as much emphasis on education.

No, not this kind of agent....

This means the Buyers and Sellers who work with Keller Williams agents are likely to get someone who has really been educated on the business of real estate and not on the latest "trick close" at a sales seminar.
Case closed.
