Our Great Smoky Mountain Association of Realtors members are still reporting sales for February but I’m going to assume that at this point, most of the transactions have been recorded. If a few more are added in the coming days that just adds to the tally which is already pretty remarkable. During February 2012, local agents have completed 137 residential sales and that is nothing to sneeze at! In fact, you do have to go all the way back to 2007 to find a better February total when 187 homes & condos were sold or 2006 when 196 Smoky Mountain homes and condo sales were completed. As far as I can tell, that 2006 tally is the all time high for the month of February for ANY year in the long history of our MLS. Here is a link to a summary of our Gatlinburg area’s residential real estate sales by month.
2012 is indeed looking good for me as I have already completed 28 transactions since the first of the year and have 5 more set to close today which is certainly a personal record. Here is a link to the ranking of agents within our board. Without my superb office staff of Suzy Compton-Hays, Giulia Luzzana, Pamela McCowen, and Angie Goderich, this simply wouldn’t be possible!! Some of our office’s agents are also having a good start to the year and our company also ranks #1 in unit sales so far in 2012. We are certainly grateful to God for the success He has allowed us to have!!
