I'm ranked in the top 2% nationally!

Peter Comitini is ranked in the top 2% of real estate agentsheadroomI learned this week that I have been once again ranked in the top 2% of my company's real estate agents nationally! NRT is the parent company of The Corcoran Group, CitiHabitats, Sothbey's Real Estate, Coldwell Banker, and Century 21— with over 54,000 agents. It is always gratifying to be recognized for producing results, but this citation is even a bit sweeter. The point is made in the testimonial letter below by NRT President and CEO Bruce Zipf; "Your achievement is even more impressive given that your high-level of production occurred during what many now feel was the most challenging quarter of our professional lifetime. You have truly proven that you are the best of the best." Indeed, since the financial crisis blew up at the end of 2008, I've been cited consistently as a top producer, and as a member of Corcoran's elite 'Multi-Million Dollar Club'.

Bruce Zipf citation letter May 2009
In my business, I can only succeed when my clients do. What it actually reflects are the successful outcomes that they have experienced. A number of sellers I've represented had been on the market previously with others. I was able to engage buyers with a visibly superior marketing and sales process for their homes, and closed the deals for them. I negotiated for buyers who's focus was to take advantage of improved home prices and low mortgage rates. We got deals that would not have been possible three months earlier.

Negative stories about the housing market are still abundant, even as glimpses that the worst may be over, begin to show. I believe that this accomplishment shows that while the marketplace sets up a general operating environment, the details of any individual deal are subject to professional knowledge of a much more granular nature. One should certainly consider what the Case-Shiller Index lumps together about single family home prices in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut; but what does that mean when you want to buy a condo on Reade Street in Tribeca? Success is always possible.
