Thank you for 2007

I sent this out in early January. Please email me if you would like to be added to my monthly e-newletter.

I hope everyone enjoyed the Holiday Season and shares my excitement about 2008. The market was great for buyers with a huge selection at reduced prices. I’m preparing a thorough summary of the market in 2007 that I will send out on Monday.
I’d like to say “Thank you” to everyone that worked with me in 2007. I was helped by a number of people and can’t thank everyone enough for their assistance during the year. I have a great team of co-workers, closing agents, bankers, attorneys, appraisers, insurance agents, and problem solvers at Garlick Environmental that work very hard to provide great service and results.
It was a tough year for most Realtors and I was extremely fortunate to have a productive year. I had 21 closings in 2007 totaling just under $6,000,000. ($47,500, $59,000, $81,500, $81,500, $81,500, $81,500, $81,500, $81,500, $81,500, $81,500, $81,500, $81,500, $81,500, $83,000, $175,000, $375,000, $450,000, $651,000, $899,000, $1,060,000, and $1,200,000)(Not all on MLS) I’m very proud that only one other agent closed more deals in the Mexico Beach Area.
I’ve stayed honest and realistic with sellers and did not promise more than I thought I could deliver for them. I did not get nearly as many listings as my competitors, but a higher percentage of my listings closed in 2007 than any other agent. My strong commitment to finding new buyers allowed me to have the 2nd highest number of closings even though 30 Realtors have more listings than I do. My personal marketing along with Port St. Joe Realty’s marketing is as effective and thorough as anybody’s in the business. If you are serious about selling, please talk with me.
My fellow agents at Port St. Joe Realty have the most extensive knowledge of the market and it is a pleasure working with them. We have a lot of new, exciting ideas for 2008 and are already off to a good start with well over $4,000,000 already under contract. I look forward to improving and working with you in the future.
Thanks again and Happy New Year,

Zach Childs
Port St. Joe Realty
