One Vienna Real Estate Team Outsells All Others in 2012
Year-end statistics are complete and once again in 2012, The Belt Team, Keller Williams Realty, sold more Vienna homes than any other Realtor or team. This is the third year in a row and quite an achievement since there are almost 10,000 Realtors in the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors (NVAR). In addition, resale listings sold by The Belt Team sold faster and for more money than the “average agent”.
Statistics reported by MRIS show that The Belt Team sold 3 times as many homes as the next top Realtor or team. Of the almost 10,000 Realtors in the NVAR, only 5 sold at least one home in Vienna per month. The Belt Team’s resale listings sold in an average of 41 days; while the average for Vienna was 60 days. In addition, Belt Team resale listings sold for 97.0% of original list price; while the average in Vienna was 96.4%. On an $850,000 home, this would represent a savings to the seller of $5,100.
Terry Belt, CEO of The Belt Team commented “Many of our team members have lived in Vienna for years. My sister (Christy Belt Grossman, Chief Operating Officer, The Belt Team) & I grew up in Vienna, have lived here since 1972 and are now raising our families in Vienna. It seems like yesterday that I was the Vice President of the student body at Wolftrap Elementary School. My partner Kevin Kleifges has also lived in Vienna since he was a child. My parents, Jerry & Gail Belt (Founding Partner, The Belt Team), live in Reston now, but also lived in Vienna for more than 30 years. We know the schools, the parks, the commuter short cuts, the shop owners, the history and all the things that make Vienna a most special place to live. Not only do we sell homes in Vienna, but with genuine enthusiasm & experience, we sell the entire community.”
Christy Belt Grossman added, “There’s really no place like Vienna. It’s truly a unique community with a winning combination of small town charm and big city convenience. But it's the people who live here that are the magic intangible that makes Vienna stand out. I loved it as a child and love it even more as a parent and empty nester. In fact, I enjoy living here so much that I write a blog about “Life in Vienna” called TheresNoPlaceLikeVienna.com! We're humbled to have been able to help so many Vienna families again this year."
