As 2021 quickly comes to an end, it’s hard to believe that another year has passed. In some ways, we have experienced great change, and in others it’s almost as if time has stood still. After another complicated year for many families and small businesses, we are reminded of how much there is to be grateful for, even in difficult times. So if you are reading this, thank you.
We appreciate everyone who has supported and referred our brokerage to their friends and family. Your recommendations and trust in us mean everything.
So what did the real estate market look like over the last 12 months? It was one of the busiest years ever in Central Indiana which made for a fun and fast paced year for the whole team. By the end of 2021, we will have helped our clients purchase and sell over 100 homes with a total of just over $25 million dollars of transactions closed.
Perhaps the most exciting progress of 2021 was the development of our brokerage. Jim, Dustin, Karen and Patty joined us. It has been so rewarding to watch our talented team grow.
As always, here is an update from some of the team.
Josh and Marji – We are very happy that we doubled our company size in 2021 while increasing total sales by just over 40%. Despite the effects of the pandemic and navigating a very challenging market, it was a great year for our brokerage.
Chris – I’m most proud of my largest sales volume of over $6.3 million! I’m also proud of being able to begin donating food to local food pantries, food and litter to the local humane society, and cutting grass in the summer for families less fortunate than me!
Dustin – My biggest accomplishment was finally getting my real estate license. I have talked about it for years but always had plenty of roadblocks in my way. Late last year I finally made the decision to start the classes, passed the exams this year and joined the Monteith-Legault family. Now the goal is to close some deals next year!
Karen – 2021 has been a year of transition. While completing my 20th year in real estate, I sold my Allstate insurance agency to focus on my true passion, which is real estate! I started with Monteith-Legault in September of 2021, when my prior company was sold, was a true blessing in disguise. I look forward to continuing my real estate career with this wonderful brokerage!!!
On a personal note, I was happy to spend a week of vacation this year with my entire immediate family in attendance, which doesn’t happen very often!
Patty – This was my first year as a full time real estate broker and I am proud that I surpassed my goal to sell $3 million. I sold almost $6 million including a FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and a new build, both of which were not even listed in Mibor!! This put me in the top 2% of brokers in Hancock County, ranked 26 out of 1324 agents. I really love being with Monteith-Legault. I truly feel like they care and treat you like family.
Tracy – I am proud that I finished and passed the real estate class and state exam and am currently working on passing the national portion of the test. I am proud of my daughters with everything they have achieved the past year and so happy to be a team member at Monteith-Legault working for great people. It makes such a difference to feel truly appreciated.
We are looking forward to 2022 and wish you a safe and happy holiday season and new year. Thank you for your continued support.
Josh, Marji, Chris, Nick, Jim, Dustin, Karen, Patty and Tracy
