It isn’t easy staying on top in a sluggish real estate market. That’s why the 90 Broker Associates at RE/MAX of Boulder, Inc. didn’t spend much time celebrating being named RE/MAX International’s 2010 No. 1 single office for total sales volume before getting back to work.
D.B. Wilson, managing broker for RE/MAX of Boulder, accepted the award on behalf of the office at the RE/MAX R4 Convention in Las Vegas March 9th. This is the fourth consecutive year that the Boulder office has earned the national honor. RE/MAX International has 3365 single offices nationwide. RE/MAX of Boulder closed 2010 with $560 million in residential sales, representing 1,400 transaction sides.
The brokers and staff certainly appreciate the recognition from RE/MAX International, but they are just as proud that the office has been recognized locally as well, as those awards demonstrate best that the office has achieved the level of customer service for which it strives. RE/MAX of Boulder has been the winner or runner-up of Boulder’s Daily Camera GOLD Award for Best Real Estate Office for 16 years and the Colorado Daily and the Boulder Weekly have named them the Best Office multiple times.
“We do good work and our clients feel we do a good job for them,” Wilson says, noting clients often refer friends and family to RE/MAX of Boulder, which has helped the office succeed in an otherwise sluggish housing market. “We went back to the basics. We figured out that it was going to be a lot of hard work and we’ve diligently been doing that. Our market share has increased dramatically in comparison with our closest competitors.”
It also helps that many of RE/MAX of Boulder’s Agents have been around a while – the office was established in 1977 – so this is not their first recession.“We’ve been able to succeed in both good times and bad,” he says. “We’re in it for the long run, we’re in it full time and fully committed to helping our clients and customers. And I think that really has helped separate us from the crowd.”
