RISMEDIA, February 10, 2014–Before changing its name to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty, the company formerly known as Prudential Network Realty celebrated its record-breaking success for 2013 at its annual awards celebration.
For the fourth straight year in a row, the company achieved double-digit growth in closed sales. In 2013, the company’s closed sales increased by 25 percent over 2012’s results. Additionally, the company’s closed sales of homes priced above $500,000 in 2013 increased by 41 percent over 2012 results. The company outperformed the Northeast Florida Multiple Listing Service (MLS), which reported a 28 percent increase in 2013 sales over the previous year.
“The key to our continuing success is the dedication and professionalism of our incredible sales team,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Founder, President and CEO Linda H. Sherrer. “Our associates, together with the leadership and guidance of our managing brokers and support team, are the driving force behind our continuous success and phenomenal growth, which has advanced our company ahead of the competition in year-over-year results. Our team consistently delivers the highest level of performance and service.”
The event took place at the Terrace Suites at EverBank Field, where numerous real estate professionals were recognized for their performances and achievements in 2013. The honorees included:
Anita Vining of the company’s San Marco office led the company as its top producer with more than $36 million in closed sales volume.

The Avondale office received the Chairman’s Cup, which recognizes over- achievement of budget targets in a number of categories including client feedback, recruiting, listing sides, closed sides, per person productivity and closed volume.
The annual awards ceremony brought together the company’s business partners, managers and sales associates from eight different offices. It was held immediately before the company’s brand transition meeting and celebration of its new identity as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty.
“Our annual awards program is an opportunity to show our appreciation to our team, giving our associates the much-deserved recognition they earned for their hard work, commitment and superior customer service,” said Christy Budnick, executive vice president of residential real estate. “We are excited about the future and knew that there was no better venue to celebrate this momentous occasion that EverBank Field!”
