Achieve Realty Breaks Into Top 10 on "The List"

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Achieve Realty, Inc.

On April 24, 2009, the Pittsburgh Business Times published their list entitled "Largest Pittsburgh-Area Residential Real Estate Firms." This list reflects the performance results for 2008 as reported to the PBT by residential real estate brokers throughout Greater Pittsburgh. Achieve Realty has something to celebrate.

For the first time, in its 5 year history, Achieve Realty has cracked the top 10, rising to number 9 on The List. Last year, Achieve was eleventh. This distinction marks a continuation of an upward trend for Achieve Realty, which has risen up The List steadily over the years.

Kristen Stokes, President of Achieve Realty stated, "the PBT list shows that we have been successful in our mission to recruit and retain top professionals. This is a fantastic opportunity to congratulate our agents and our administrative staff for their hard work and their commitment to excellence."

This year's list reflects the difficult time our region's economy experienced during 2008, especially the fourth quarter. Many firms suffered double-digit decreases in revenue. It is one thing to lose market share, but it is quite another to lose colleagues from the industry. We at Achieve Realty understand that the general malaise in the local real estate industry translates into financial hardship for many real estate licensees and their families.

Therefore, as we celebrate our accomplishment, we also offer hope that the real estate market and the broader economy will flourish in the coming months and years so that we may all prosper.

Congratulations on moving up in the rankings.  If you move up and expand your market in bad times you will do even better in a good market

Great News, probably wont see that on the mainstream media.

Glad to hear your company is doing great, maybe Real Estate is starting to turn around.

Good Luck to you in 2009
