MARLTON (Feb. 27) – It’s three-in-a-row for RE/MAX Connection Realtors as the agency – for the third-straight year – has been named the number one-ranked RE/MAX real estate company in New Jersey.
The year 2013 ended the same as 2012 and 2011 for RE/MAX Connection, with the agency’s three offices – in Marlton, Burlington County and in Mantua and Turnersville, Gloucester County – combining to close more real estate transactions than any other RE/MAX operation in the state. In 2013, RE/MAX Connection closed on 1,717 units, up from both its state-leading total of 1,383 in 2012 and the number-one amount of 1,122 in 2011.
The RE/MAX Connection Turnersville operation was number two in the state in units closed for individual offices with the Marlton operation finishing seventh in units. On a separate list, the Turnersville office was number eight in the amount of commissions paid to Realtors in 2013.
Among individual honors, RE/MAX Connection Turnersville agent John Swartz was the number one RE/MAX agent in the state last year in units sold. His colleague David Beach, also from the Turnersville operation, finished number three statewide.
“Our strong performance year after year is a result of the hard work and customer focus of our outstanding Realtors,” said RE/MAX Connection CEO Christopher J. Brown. “We’ve always said the best agents in New Jersey work at RE/MAX Connection and, once again this year, the statistics prove our point.
“In addition to our Realtors, I’m extremely proud of our management team and support staff,” Brown said. “Our collective goal is to produce the best results we can every day for our clients as we help them buy or sell property.”
Two teams of Realtors from RE/MAX Connection also made the top 10 in collective team unit sales for 2013. The team of Peter Sklikas and Kimberly Schempp, from the Turnersville office, finished the year in eighth place while the team led by Scott Kompa, from the RE/MAX Connection Mantua office, was in 10th place on the statewide units-sold list.
The team of Sklikas and Schempp also was ninth in the state for commissions received. Their compensation – between $500,000 and $999,000 — also earned them RE/MAX Chairman’s Club award status.
“It takes a strong team effort to, first, achieve these results, and then to maintain them year after year,” said Kevin Bayzath, Broker of Record for RE/MAX Connection. “It’s great to receive statewide recognition for such hard work.”
“Our Realtors take the time to listen to their customers, to understand their needs and to work with them on their goals,” said Kevin Burbage, associate broker and manager of the RE/MAX Connection offices in Mantua and Turnersville.
Five RE/MAX Connection agents also were recognized for attaining Hall of Fame Club status by topping $1 million in lifetime gross commissions since joining RE/MAX International: Four are from the Turnersville office – Sklikas, Richard Bradford, Janet Larsen and Christopher McKenty – and one, Kompa, works out of the RE/MAX Connection Mantua operation.
Realtor Joseph Granato, from the RE/MAX Connection office in Turnersville, also received a special commendation for his 25 years of professional real estate service.
