Atlanta, GA, United States, 2013/04/08 - Atlanta Realtor Mark Spain and his team were honored as the top-producing large real estate team by the Atlanta Board of Realtors at its 2013 awards banquet - MarkSpain.com.
This award for 2012 sales, makes the ninth consecutive year the Mark Spain Team has earned this honor. In 2012, the Mark Spain Team had $110 million in gross sales, a 25 percent increase over 2011 team sales, and 631 transactions.
Annually a multi-million dollar producing team, they surpassed $1 billion in gross sales in 2006 and have received numerous industry honors, including being named 20th on the Wall Street Journal’s 2012 annual Top 250 Agent Teams list. Each year, the Mark Spain Team appears prominently near the top of this list showcasing the best agent teams from around the country.
While Spain and his team did focus a good part of their business on short sales and foreclosure prevention during the height of the recession, it is now a much smaller portion of their business, thanks to a recovering real estate market. The bulk of the team’s business is now back in traditional real estate sales. To keep up with the rapidly growing demand in the market, Mark Spain has been growing his real estate team, which currently consists of 26 team members with additional agents expected to be added throughout 2013.
“It’s a great time to be working in the Atlanta real estate market. Home prices are recovering, mortgage rates are still incredibly low, and homebuyer demand is causing many homes to stay on the market a matter of days,” noted Mark Spain. “Move-up buyers are finally seeing their chance and the lack of homes for sale is turning metro Atlanta real estate into a seller’s market, which is a trend we have not seen in several years.”
The Mark Spain Team is based out of the Keller Williams Realty North Atlanta office at 5780 Windward Parkway in Alpharetta. They specialize in assisting home buyers, investors, sellers and distressed property owners in metro Atlanta at all price levels. In addition, the team now offers a Guaranteed Sale Program. Mark Spain will buy a listing at a pre-arranged price if his team does not sell the home in the allotted number of days. The team also has an automatic buyout program where they make an all-cash offer on a home within 24 hours of listing the property.
As the team leader, Mark Spain has also become in demand at national speaking events, including the upcoming Radio and Television Experts (RATE) Mastermind at the end of April in Las Vegas and the Keller Williams Family Reunion where he spoke about marketing to a standing room only crowd.
