The Real Estate Group had more than half a billion in sales for the second year in a row. The Group’s 145 agents sold $520,059,240 worth of property in Sangamon County in 2017.
Managing Broker, Mike Buscher, said the year-on-year increase was due to the dedication of The Group’s team. “The almost $20 million increase in just 12 months is thanks to the excellent service given by our REALTORS to clients. This is why we are the go-to real estate company in Central Illinois.”
The Group took 49% of the market share in the county topping Springfield’s annual sales again. “We are leading the way with more than $190 million in total sales between us and our closest competitor,” said Mike. “It’s no surprise when you consider the trust we have gained in the community because there is no task too big or small for our REALTORS – we treat everyone the same.”
Despite the cold weather sales were up at the end of last year and remain steady in January in comparison to previous years. “The high demand for first-time single-family homes continues while at the same time inventory remains low so it’s still a great time to put your home on the market. Our agents are busy right now and we expect to have another successful year at The Group.”
The Real Estate Group, established in 1997, is located at 3701 W. Wabash Ave., Springfield, IL 62711, and provides residential and commercial sales, expertise in new construction, and recreational and farmland.
