Windermere Homes & Estates Expects to Hit 1 Billion in Sales in 2015
Posted by Courtney Sloan — January 27, 2015
SAN DIEGO, CA - In the first 18 months since the company launched, Windermere Homes & Estates has hired over 200 agents, opened five offices, started construction on two others and has more luxury locations on the way. The real estate brokerage expects that in 2015 they will hit a billion in sales while maintaining steady growth and their commitment to remain an agent-centric firm.
When Windermere Homes & Estates opened their doors in July of 2013, co-owners Brian Gooding and Rich Johnson agreed that the main focus of the company would be keeping the culture agent-centered and family oriented. By putting relationships before sales quotas, Brian and Rich knew that Windermere Homes & Estates would create an environment that fueled success and innovation.
The momentum the company gained within 18 months of their grand opening has been incredible; Windermere Homes & Estates now has over 200 agents, five opened offices and two under construction with more locations on the way.
To accommodate for the growth, Brian, Rich and CFO, Fred Schuster have started hiring more support staff and have also either opened or started construction on their new office locations including Fallbrook, La Jolla and “The Plaza” in Rancho Bernardo.
Windermere is also dedicated to providing top technology tools and resources to their agents. The company has exclusive new partnerships with Zillow and Porch.com. Brian and Rich are also focused on expanding the company`s luxury division and have placed a huge emphasis on serving that market.
The outstanding reputations of Brian and Rich along with the upscale, high tech offices, the company is attracting top agents in all of the areas they have opened in. While they are continuing to grow at a fast pace, both Brian and Rich maintain their original commitment to put agents first and to always remain available to them to support them in all of their needs as well as that of their clients.
“This tremendous growth is amazing but we aren`t taking our eye off the ball. Rich and I are still in the offices every day and will always put our agents above anything else.” Said Brian Gooding.
According to Rich Johnson, “We expect that in 2015 we will hit a billion in sales and although we are rapidly expanding, we are doing so in the smartest way possible and making the best decisions for the brokerage as a whole.”
