RE/MAX Southern Celebrates Banner Year with Award-Winning Agents

Locally-owned Gulf Coast real estate brokerage recaps impressive 2015 sales figures with nationally-recognized agents.

DESTIN, FL (PRWEB) March 11, 2016 - RE/MAX Southern Realty – a member of the locally owned and operated Southern family of companies and leading provider of Destin, Florida real estate services – recently held its annual awards ceremony celebrating a successful 2015 and honoring its many well-regarded real estate agents along the way. The brokerage closed 392 transactions totaling over $138 million in sales.

“RE/MAX Southern is home to some of the best real estate agents on the Gulf Coast,” said RE/MAX Southern Owner/Broker Kerry Veach. “They’re experienced, dedicated and professional. We could not ask for a better group to represent the RE/MAX Southern brand.”

Over the course of 2015, RE/MAX Southern outsold competitors with nationally recognized agents. According to the “2015 RE/MAX vs. The Industry Report,” the average number of transactions for a real estate agent varies between 6 and 9 sales per year. The average number of transactions for a RE/MAX agent is 16. Last year alone, RE/MAX Southern Realty averaged 19 transactions per agent.

“Whatever you are looking for in a realtor, our agents have it,” said RE/MAX Southern Owner/Broker, Brad Shoults. “They continue to exceed expectations, raising the bar for everyone in the real estate industry.”

RE/MAX Southern agents’ hard work and dedication has not gone unnoticed. In the company’s annual award ceremony, Destin Realtors Claire Gagne, Anne Hurrle-Kazek and Dawn Shoults were awarded the franchise’s Executive Club Award, while Stephanie Creel, Kevin Granberry, Destin Lowery, Mary Ann Miller, Jim Murphy and Bobby Parish were honored as 100% Club Members. Matt Williams earned a place within the Platinum Club, and longtime RE/MAX Southern agents Susie Kirkland and Carole Pleasants received Chairman’s Club recognition.

The firm’s top listings agents were Matt Williams and Carole Pleasants, who represent homes and condos for sale primarily in the Destin area, and Jim Murphy who specializes in Panama City Beach real estate.

Susie Kirkland received the 2015 Children’s Miracle Network Award, one of many accomplishments for Susie and her team this past year. In 2015, Kirkland earned a place within the RE/MAX Circle of Legends, a prestigious accomplishment that has been achieved by less than half of one percent of all sales associates affiliated with the RE/MAX network, while fellow team-member Destin Lowery received the RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award.

“I’m proud of every single one of our agents,” said Veach. “Without them, RE/MAX Southern wouldn’t be what it is today.”
