Watson Realty Ranks 15th in the Nation

10 04 2006

RISMEDIA, residential real estate’s largest independent news and information service, has included in the April issue of Real Estate Magazine its 18th Annual Power Broker Report & Survey which identified Watson Realty Corp. as ranking 15th in the nation based on closed transaction sides (21,763)in the year 2005.

Who could have predicted a year like 2005? With home appreciation reaching unheard of heights and interest rates holding their own, the real estate industry made history—again—by setting a fifth consecutive annual record. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the median price of a home last year was up 12.7% and existing home sales were up 4.2% from 2004.

With existing home sales expected to decline 5.7% this year, some are worried. But not the Power Brokers. They know that the key drivers——minorities, Boomers, Echoes, technology——will continue to fuel the market. Power Brokers, in fact, look forward to the normalized market ahead——they know that it will help set them apart from less-than-worthy competitors even more. The firms in the report account for over 3 million transactions in 2005, closing nearly $956 billion in total sales volume. Powering these top firms are 318,997 licensed sales agents and more than 6,230 offices nationwide.

Said William A. Watson, Jr., Watson Realty Corp.’s Chairman of the Board, “We are pleased to once again be ranked among the nation’s top real estate companies in the Power Broker Report. It is quite an honor and a powerful statement to be ranked among the top fifteen real estate companies in the United States! We continue to expand to meet the needs of our customers and are totally committed to providing the very best quality service in the industry. Our associates are driven to exceed their customers’ expectations and our company’s full range of ancillary services allow our customers to have truly a one-stop shopping experience.”
