August 19 2008 by RE/Max of Sonora Jim W Hildreth

Today I recieved a call from an agent from Heidi Hovatter of Century 21 of Twain Harte, she said to me congratulations on being number One.

I told her I was not number one but number 3 on ActiveRain.

She corrected me and said not ActiveRain but for actual sales both on the listing and and sale side from January 1st to August 19th 2008 for the Tuolumne County Board of Realtors.

I told her I had no idea and she stated that her Broker Kim Darr had brought it to her attention.
The actual unit sales were are at 22 and the top 49 agents averaged 8 sides of sales year to date.

This has been a soft market.

I knew I was closing transactions and as I have told others, its been all the lower end prices that have been selling. $20,000, $65,000, $150,000, $30,000. $231,000

It seems I'm closing 6-7 deals compared to one in the past for the same numbers.

I have a pending sale of $475,000 and this is high end in the present market.

What do I owe to these numbers ?. I'm equal in working with both sellers and buyers at 11 each and the number 2-3 agents have tied into the REO market with strong listings.

Hard work, great sellers & buyers, pricing to the market and I'm also a strong dual agent representing both buyers & sellers.

In addition the internet continues to be valuable in marketing.

I look forward in finishing the year and both buyers and sellers have been great to work with and in the past I have been a strong listing broker.
