Sandestin Real Estate recently announced the top producing Agents of the Month for December 2013:

• Jessica Jones  — Sales Agent of the Month (both dollar volume and transaction volume)

•Christine Thompson  — Listing Agent of the Month (number of listings)

•Stephanie Vogel —  Listing Agent of the Month (dollar volume of listings)

Vogel offers up her take on the 2013 real estate market, “Real Estate predictions for 2013 came up short.  National sales increased by 11 percent, and in Florida, condo sales were up 18 percent according to numbers released by Florida Realtors. With interest rates holding relatively low and properties still priced well below mid-2000s prices, I believe sales will continue to grow throughout 2014.”  

That’s good news for sales in the upcoming year, but it takes more than a strong real estate market to be a top producer.

When asked about her secret for success, Thompson states simply that “a good real estate agent doesn’t disappear once the closing papers are signed.”   

Jones goes on to explain that “a successful real estate agent evaluates the clients' needs and consistently puts their best interests first. An amazing thing happens when you do — both your clients’ and your own personal goals will be achieved beyond your greatest expectations!”
