REAL Trends Inc. has recognized the Brandon-based Keller Williams Realty Chadwick Group for its growth.
The Chadwick Group was one of 17 firms in America and the only real estate company in Florida to achieve growth in all key areas of brokerage operational performance.
REAL Trends is the leading trends and research firm in North America for the residential brokerage industry and publishes annual rankings for the National Association of Realtors listing the leading brokerage firms and sales professionals.
In a 10-year comparison study of the leading 500 residential brokerage firms in the country, REAL Trends found that only 17 had grown in 3 key areas: number of sales associates, number of homes sold and sales volume from 2002 to 2011.
Kevin Chadwick, operating principle for the Chadwick Group, credits his team for its success. With seven offices and more than 500 agents in Tampa Bay, the group is part of Keller Williams Realty, which recently achieved the status of No. 1 real estate franchise in the United States by agent count.
In 2012, the Chadwick Group also achieved the prestigious J.D. Power and Associates “Highest in Customer Satisfaction” among both home buyers and home sellers, as well as the ranking of No. 9 on America’s Top 150 Workplaces.
“Focusing on the success of our agents in good and bad times and partnering with some of the most successful agents in our community is the real secret to the accomplishment," said Chadwick.
“When you consider that housing sales fell over 50 percent throughout the country over the past 10 years, to have even 17 firms accomplish growth in all three key areas of brokerage performance is an amazing accomplishment," said Steve Murray, editor of REAL Trends. "What we found is that these leaders have an absolute commitment to the people of their companies and have proven to be able to adapt to the most adverse environment that we have seen in recent times. Not only did these firms perform well, but in all three categories they outperformed their peer companies by as much as 100 percent over the 10-year period.”
“We were greatly honored by this acknowledgement of our success over the past 10 years," said Chadwick. "We are proud of our leadership and the efforts of our sales professionals. The culture of our group centers around helping each other and working together, which is the magic to our continued success. We believe together everyone achieves more."
Chadwick opened his first office 10 years ago in Brandon.
