It’s been over a month since my last post, primarily due to the fact we have been very busy! In August we held our 5th anniversary party. We opened our office in June of 2004 and since then have had over 1300 Chicago area agents make what they determined to be the Best Choice for them by joining Charles Rutenberg Realty.
As a company, August 2009 has been our busiest month ever. We completed nearly 200 transactions. Our sales volume for the month was76% higher than August 2008! While year to date 2009 sales were 6% less than 2008 year to date, the last three months show an overall increase of 13%. Our average sales price is lower in 2009, $213,029 versus $240,439 for 2008.
