MCLEAN, VA (February 24, 2014)
Year-end statistics are complete and once again in 2013, The Belt Team sold more homes in the Vienna-Oakton area than any other Realtor or team. This is the fifth 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, The Belt Team’s resale listings sold faster and for more money than average.
Over the past 5 years, The Belt Team sold 266 homes in the Vienna-Oakton area, almost twice as many homes as the next top Realtor or team. (As a comparison, the “average agent” in Northern VA only sold 5 homes through all of 2013, and that was in the entire region.) More importantly, The Belt Team’s resale listings sold faster and for more money than average.
The Belt Team’s listings averaged only 6 days on the market; while the next top agents’ listings averaged 56-112 days on market. In addition, Belt Team resale listings sold for 4-5% more than the other top agents. On an $850,000 home, this could represent a savings to the seller of $42,500.
Terry Belt, CEO of The Belt Team commented “Although we sell as many homes outside the Vienna-Oakton area as we do inside, we especially love working in our own backyard. 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. We know the schools, the parks, the ballfields, the swim clubs, the riding rings. the commuter short cuts, the shop owners, the history and all the things that make Vienna & Oakton a most special place to live. Not only do we sell homes there, but with genuine enthusiasm & experience, we sell the entire community.”
Christy Belt Grossman added, “There’s really no place like the Oakton-Vienna area. I love driving through Oakton’s horse country with so much natural beauty. And Vienna is 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 & Oakton stand out. I loved it as a child and love it even more as a parent and empty nester. We’re humbled to have been able to help so many Vienna-Oakton families again this year.”
