March 21, 2008 // Franchising.com // MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. – Weichert Capital Properties & Estates, the luxury-home division of Weichert, Realtors®, recently announced that 2007 proved to be yet another prosperous year. Despite dealing with a challenging real estate market through the year, Capital Properties & Estates eclipsed the total dollar volume sales it generated in 2006. The company also experienced its best year ever for sales of $3 million-plus listings.
"We are very pleased with how 2007 turned out for the division, particularly in light of the performance of the real estate market as a whole," said Roger Christman, vice president of Weichert Capital Properties & Estates. "The continued annual success of Capital Properties & Estates is a testament to our exceptional team of highly-skilled individuals and reaffirms that luxury homes do sell in a timely manner when priced appropriately."
In 2007, Capital Properties & Estates increased its national exposure as a result of the continued growth of the Weichert network of companies. Working closely with both company-owned offices and offices of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc., the franchise arm of Weichert, Realtors, Capital Properties & Estates enhanced its presence in the luxury-home markets of Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Weichert Capital Properties & Estates' highly personalized approach to marketing multimillion-dollar properties has kept the company at the forefront of the high-end housing market. Listed as one of the most prestigious real estate companies by the 2007 Luxury Brand Status Index (LBSI) survey, Capital Properties & Estates clients have included Wall Street financiers, top corporate executives, successful entrepreneurs, and celebrities from sports and entertainment.
