Gibson Sotheby's International Realty Companywide Meeting Larry Rideout, CEO
Twice a year we hold companywide meetings bringing together in one place our staff and agents from all eight of our different offices (the most recent was held last week). These meetings are a reminder that we truly are a family here at Gibson Sothebys International Realty.
Our team of roughly 170 agents cover a wide range of areas from the inner city to the suburbs. As Steve Jobs once said, Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower. This quote is applicable to our agents as they continue to lead the market in spite of the inevitable obstacles they encounter.
This meeting gave us the opportunity to include a few guest presenters including Robert Byrne, Vice President of Sothebys Affiliates Services North East, Jessica Prince from Dalton and Finegold, and the Partners and Managing Broker from our largest affiliate to the North, Four Seasons Sothebys International Realty.
Pam Perkins Partner and Vice President of Four Seasons Sothebys International Realty told us of their recent merger and expansion. They now have 23 offices covering New Hampshire and Vermont. Our relocation department works closelywith Four Season Sotheby's International Realty as many of our clients looktorelocate in or out of the city.
Robert Byrne informed us that Sothebys International Realty represented a total of 87,000 transactions in 2014. We then proudly went over our own numbers from 2014 which were remarkable. Despite the treacherous winter, we closed on average 20 transactions per week equalling over 1100 transactions for the year. A total of 593 listings were sold with an average sale price of $892,828 breaking down to 11.4 listings sold per week.Incredible numbers by an incredible team!
We are looking forward to another great year in 2015 as we are growing once again! We have just finished our office space and will be opening in Cambridge, Massachusetts this April. As long as there is a Sotheby's option, why would you choose anyone else?
