Beacham & Company #1 in First Quarter 2010 Sales, Market Share Growth in Buckhead, Atlanta
Posted by Dac Carver — April 23, 2010
ATLANTA - In the first quarter of 2010, Beacham & Company, REALTORS® was once again the top selling office in Buckhead and “In-town Atlanta” based on dollar volume of residential real estate sold.
The results for the first quarter come on the heels of Beacham & Company finishing 2009 as the top selling office in the three MLS areas (21, 23 and 132) that make up Buckhead and In-town Atlanta.
In addition to being the top selling Buckhead real estate firm for the last 15 months, Beacham & Company is also the fastest growing among firms with at least $60 million in sales for the 12-month period ending March 31. Beacham & Company grew its market share by 43 percent from April 2009 to March 2010. The next closest competitor grew by just 13.7 percent.
According to Dac Carver, managing broker of Beacham & Company, the firm’s sales have been driven by a significant increase in the number of buyers who are working with Beacham & Company.
“Since the first of the year, we have seen a huge jump in the number of buyers entering the real estate market,” Carver said. “After many buyers postponed home purchases in 2009, the improving economy and attractive home prices have combined to entice buyers back into the market and send sales in Buckhead up 46 percent in the first quarter.”
Beacham & Company has benefited more than any other company from the increase in buyer activity, as the company’s share of transactions in which the firm represented a buyer increased 92 percent from the same quarter a year ago. Carver said many of the firm’s buyers have a relocation package or are foreign buyers who do business in Atlanta and have been lured by great real estate deals.
“Many large corporations told us in 2009 that they were postponing moves until 2010,” Carver said. “2010 is here and those companies are following through with their plans. We are fortunate to be working with many of them.”Beacham & Company, Realtors® is a full service residential real estate firm located in Buckhead that specializes in the most affluent areas of Atlanta real estate.
