2010 By The Numbers

Someone is in trouble for thisI am going to indulge in a brazen self promotional post since the end of the year is here, mainly to state the facts, since Ann tells me I don’t stress the level of performance I, um, perform. So here are a few facts about how J. Philip did in 2010, both myself personally and the team. 

10– My rank for residential transactions closed out of over 7000 EAMLS member agents. In other words, I sold more homes than 99.86% of my competition. I averaged just under 1 transaction side (.9) per week. I am proud of that, but prouder still of the job done for each individual client, with the great help from Ann and Ronnie, my two administrative goddesses. 

45– My company’s rank for transactions closed out of about 920 member firms of the EAMLS. That put J. Philip in the top 5% of the MLS for sales volume, outselling quite a few larger offices and a slew of national chain offices. Overall we had 81 transaction sides as a team, and I aim to make that number far larger this year as my guys take their individual games to the next level. But that is another post. 

19-The number of licensees now associated with the company, which has grown in spite of the crummy housing market. We have a few more on deck who will be joining the team in early 2011. Half the team didn’t sell a thing under our license in 2010- that is fine by me. Not everyone is full time or with the firm very long, but everyone made a contribution. 

2– The number of branch offices now open since we put down stakes in northern Manhattan in March. 

2– The number of times I have been elected as Vice President of the MLS after being re-elected last month. 

514– The number of blog posts I have authored on this platform, not including my outside niche blogs. I do not think it is a coincidence that I have blogged obsessively and that we’ve performed well in 2010. 

2010 was a superior year to 2008 and much better than last year as well. We’ve had our challenges, and I’ll be blogging about how I did with my 2010 goals soon, but suffice to say I am gratified for the position the firm is in and the caliber of people we have on the team. Real estate agents are notorious for bragging, but I have tried to keep this as close to the banal numbers as possible. The best feedback I can get is that I have walked my talk.
