The end of year and start of a new one is a special time because it encourages each of us to review what has come before and envision what lies ahead.
For us at Resources Real Estate, we saw 2016 bring us many things, much of which will carry us into 2017 with great momentum. In September we were nominated for 8 awards by Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate (LRE), a prestigious global network of elite brokers and agents. Among the nominations were Best Website, Best Print Marketing, Best Digital Marketing, Outstanding Social Media Savvy, Most Innovative Marketing Technique (which we won 2 years ago) and others. Most every national real estate firm was among the nominees including affiliates of Sotheby’s, ReMax, Coldwell Banker, and more, as well as many fine independent brokers from around the country and the world. We are truly honored to be recognized in such fine company. September was also the month we were named to the Inc.5000 — Inc. Magazine’s list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This recognition of our growth was a welcome surprise and it demonstrates that our work has yielded real results.
In October the celebration continued as we brought home the award for Best Overall Marketing Package from LRE at their 21st annual Luxury Real Estate awards ceremony held in Aspen. This recognition was momentous as it acknowledged our efforts in print, digital and online, in our company branding, property marketing and agent promotion. Our marketing approach’s comprehensiveness was key to our receiving this award. October was also the month we celebrated our top agents by rewarding them with a luxury cruise vacation for their hard work and stellar sales. It was a joy to spend time with these wonderfully impressive people — not just great sales professionals but warm, compassionate and creative individuals. We aspire every day to fulfill our ideal of “Exceptional Service, Exceptional Homes, Exceptional Agents” and 2016 exemplified our success in inching closer to it. We look forward to an exciting 2017 and all it holds for us. We wish you the best in the new year as well.
