2015 Year in Review and a Thank You

What a year 2015 was!

It may seem that we are super late to the party to be publishing this information, but the beginning of 2016 has been such a whirlwind, we're just now starting to slow down and take a breath!

Real Estate Recaps:

After starting out 2015 on a bit of a rocky footing, it was exciting to watch the traction take hold. We closed out the year with 18 transactions closed, over $16,000 handed back to our clients who are heroes (teachers, police, fire, first responders and military) and countless hours logged.

We assisted 4 sellers, our total number of buyers were 6 and we helped 8 rental families find new communities as well. Production numbers don't matter much to us (community and clients come first!) but in an effort to publicly track our growth, we claimed $2.5 million in sales for the 2015 year in review, and in only our first year of business, we'll own that number!

78% of our business came from direct referrals and we are extremely proud of that in our first full year of business!

Personal Recaps:

It has been a roller coaster of ups and downs when it comes to a recap of the past year from a personal level ... from finding our own "home" when it came to the right brokerage affiliation, assembling a team of expert partners (lenders, home inspectors, repairmen, etc.) that we knew we could trust from client to client, to finding the right match in our team members.

I also had a lot of learning lessons as it related to coming into my "own" as a leader, running a team, still managing my household and growing my international relationships inside of the relocation side of the business.

I am super excited to say that while some of my personal goals were realized in 2015, there are many many left to work towards in the remainder of 2016 and beyond! 2015 was the stepping block to really great things and I'm excited to soon report our 2016 year in review!

Give Back and Media Recaps:

What an honor to partner in 2015 with the Loudoun First Responders Foundation (serving on the Board of Directors), Boulder Crest Retreat, Ripe for Harvest in Kenya and Ripple Effect Images - a global organization (serving on the Board of Advisors).

We saw the I Am A Triangle community (international relocation community) grow to over 3,000 members in our private Facebook group -- goodness! (We're now nearly to 6,000 in the beginning of 2016!)

Featured in The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and on over 5 podcasts, our media presence is also increasing, which is exciting. Using our experience to help guide others is what we're in this business to accomplish! Click to our Featured Page to learn more about those media spots.

Wrapup:

At the end of the day, we exist to serve you, your friends and family, and your referrals. We strive to better ourselves through consistent training and growth. Thank you for trusting us with your referrals, with your own personal real estate journeys, and allowing us to help you find home!
