RISMEDIA, March 3, 2008-Accurately pricing a home based on current market conditions is often the key factor between rapidly selling a house and slowly finding a buyer, according to leading real estate sales associates in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, New Jersey.
This home selling advice comes from Diane Turton, Realtors’ 32 sale associates who earned the coveted 2007 New Jersey Association of Realtors (NJAR) Circle of Excellence Sales Award®. Circle of Excellence Gold Award recipient Michael Milano, who is based in the firm’s Brick office, reports that properly pricing each client’s home was the number one reason why he and his team sold 39 homes valued at over $20 million last year. Diane Turton, Realtors also had nine sales agents whose work merited the Silver Award and 22 agents whose efforts earned them the Bronze Award.
“Our Circle of Excellence honorees are the Best of the Best,” said Diane Turton, the firm’s founder, owner and broker of record. “They are sales associates who are dedicated to their profession, totally service oriented and superb marketers of homes.”
The NJAR Circle of Excellence is divided into four categories: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Sales associates qualify for awards based on their annual sales in dollars and the number of units sold. Also, awards can be based solely on the number of units sold by a sales associate in one year.
