Terri Healey Closes On $13 Million in Residential Sales in Just Three MonthsSARASOTA, Fla. – (Oct. 17, 2007) –
This year’s real estate correction made the annual summer slowdown in residential sales that much slower. But neither a cold market nor hot off-season weather kept Terri Healey, a sales associate in the Palmer Ranch office of Michael Saunders & Company®
, from having one of her best summers ever.Healey closed on nearly $13 million in sales in the traditionally slow months between late June and early September. Equally noteworthy is that the five sales represented homes in every price range—from $249,000 up to nearly $5 million—in neighborhoods as diverse as Nokomis, Bird Key, The Founders Club and Manasota Key. According to Healey, her success has been primarily based on pricing and presentation. “It’s getting back to the basics by putting the ‘real’ back in real estate,” she said.“With my sellers, I communicate regularly and continually re-orient them to the ever-changing dynamics of today’s correcting real estate market and its effect on their properties,” Healey adds. “Understanding the shifting realities of the marketplace is the very knowledge that empowers us, in consultation with out sellers, to price and present their homes competitively.”Healey also attributes her success to the array of property marketing tools that her affiliation with Michael Saunders & Company® enables her to bring to each of her customers. She specifically cites the technical prowess, Internet superiority and multiple international affiliations that the company has developed over the years.A native of Atlanta, Terri Healey has resided in Southwest Florida for 33 years.
