Before we take a look at our 2016 business year, please allow me to extend my best wishes for a Happy New Year! I truly wish all of our clients, customers and associates a 2017 blessed with much health and happiness.
Calendar year 2016 was another successful and profitable year for Wolfe & Company Realtors. We celebrated our 30th Anniversary and opened our new appraisal division. Our settled transactions were on a par with 2015 – – which was the best year we had enjoyed since back in 2006.
On a personal level, I settled $10,000,000 in real estate transactions. This again made me the top producing Broker within the Greater Carlisle Area and placed me within the top 3% of all agents conducting business within the footprint of the Greater Harrisburg Association of Realtors. My average settled transaction price of $339,152 was tops among all area Brokers and Salespersons.
Wolfe & Company office production again placed us a very solid 4th among all of the real estate companies doing business within the Greater Carlisle Area. While operating with less than half of the residential agents found in the top 3 area offices, our $35,342,000 worth of closed transactions actually placed us within the top 15% of the 217 offices doing business in the entire Greater Harrisburg Area.
Mitch Gelbaugh, Erin Wolfe, Eric Shryock, Harry Snyder, and Tracy Sharp all continued to be among the top producers in the market place. Although Wolfe & Company Realtors does not use the “Team” approach in our business, their collective total of over $21,000,000 in settled transactions is impressive by any measure.
As we begin our 31st year of service to the Greater Carlisle Area and beyond, we have both great pride in our history and great optimism toward our future. We fully expect 2017 to be another banner year for Wolfe & Company Realtors. We look forward to serving you like no one else can! #NOFEESNOTEAMSNONONSENSE.
