Thank you Sherry Wilson - Great Job Team!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Leaders

Sherry has decided to reward our team with a cruise...again! Even though it was a tough year, the Sherry Wilson Team pulled together and held the lines. Our final numbers were down from previous years, but comparatively, we really did more business than we expected. This market has been a real eye-opener for our team, and we have had to frequently adapt and make tough changes to stay on track with our goals.

A message from Sherry about 2007:

 There was a statistic recently from the National Association of Realtors that said from 2000-2005 the number of licensed agents in the US climbed from 700,000 to 1.3 Million.  By 2009, that number is expected to dwindle to the 900,000s. Prior to 2000 the number of licensed agents had remained stable in the 700,000s for many, many years.

If you did not see this market coming, or was not prepared for it, it will be very difficult to sustain a decent profit margin. I think that the agents that persevere this market will come out on the other side, stronger than ever. What does not kill you makes you stronger! That has been my plan from the beginning. We are going to survive this market, we are going to benefit from the lessons we have learned, and my team will be stronger and more cohesive because of it. The creative and unique ideas that have come from my team because of the changing market have been very effective. By pulling together and evolving with the market, they have managed to keep this business alive, and I have no doubt that the momentum generated will propel them forward to achieve there team and personal growth goals in the future.

A message from the team:

 Thank you Sherry for keeping us together as a family and allowing us to remain intact. We know it was difficult! We know you could have dissolved our administrative support team for higher profits, but you did not. We know you could have reduced our marketing budget, but you did not. We know you could have lost faith in us when we had a tough month, but you did not. We know you could have spent less money on training, but you did not. We know you could have decided to not take our entire team on another cruise this year, but you did not. We know you could have cut back on many things, but you did not.

You have been behind us at every turn. You have encouraged us when we felt there was no hope. You have remained our biggest fan through the most difficult market we have ever experienced. You have been there for us on a personal level, to help us when we needed you. For all of this, we thank you and we love you.

We look forward to a great 2008, and we will do everything in our power to make it the best year ever for the Sherry Wilson Team.

Had to read all of your posts in this series!  They get better and better!  It is nice to be appreciated and I can see by this post that you really deserve every bit of it!  We will level off, 900,000 is what Brian Buffini has been saying for one year now:)  Some agents have a license and haven't sold one house this year!  Dues and fees are payable on or before December 31st.  Our board is now charging for continuing education classes! We will level out and be fine. Good to read that you are out there going after it!
