Husband-and-Wife Broker/Owners of RE/MAX Experts in Buffalo Grove Earn Top Honor from RE/MAX Northern Illinois Real Estate Network

Andee Hausman and Jay Blessent, owners of RE/MAX Experts in Buffalo Grove, Ill., earned one of the top honors given out at the RE/MAX Northern Illinois 35th annual awards ceremony.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 07, 2012 - Andee Hausman and Jay Blessent, owners of RE/MAX Experts in Buffalo Grove, Ill., earned one of the top honors given out at the RE/MAX Northern Illinois 35th annual awards ceremony. They were named 2011 Broker/Owners of the Year, Single Office, Suburbs. It is the second time in their careers that the couple, who met and married while both were RE/MAX agents, received the prestigious “Broker/Owner of the Year” honor.

Each year, the RE/MAX Northern Illinois awards ceremony honors affiliates who have achieved outstanding results in the areas of sales, service, philanthropy and technology.

Recipients of the Broker/Owner of the Year award must be exceptional in many areas, including recruiting, management and corporate citizenship, as well as by helping RE/MAX achieve a dominant position in the local real estate market and strong internet presence.

Hausman and Blessent have more than met these requirements. Under their leadership, RE/MAX Experts has continued to grow even in a residential real estate market that is constantly changing. When other real estate offices were downsizing or closing, RE/MAX continued to lead in listings sold as it has done for the past 10 years. During six of those ten years, it held more than 35 percent of the market. In addition, the office had not lost a single agent in 2011, an impressive feat in an industry in which professionals frequently move from brokerage to brokerage.

Hausman first received her real estate license in 1979 and joined RE/MAX in 1991. Since then, she has consistently ranked among the leading sales teams in the RE/MAX Northern Illinois real estate network. Blessent, who immediately joined RE/MAX after earning his license in 1989 and also has had a successful sales career, now concentrates his efforts on management and recruiting.

With nearly 40 full-time agents who serve a broad segment of the Chicago area, the brokerage shows no signs of slowing its steady growth.
