PRLog - Feb. 6, 2013 - PEORIA, Ill. -- Gross sales in 2012 for Adam Merrick and his 11-person team were $47.9 million, placing the Merrick team on Keller Williams Realty’s national list of Top 50 Teams. By placing 24th on this quarterly list (2012 third quarter) and as the only Illinois team on the list, the Adam Merrick team will be the top-producing Keller Williams team in Illinois. Merrick’s team was also named the top team for homes sold in 2011 by the Peoria Area Association of Realtors.
The Adam Merrick Team accomplished record sales amid a tough real estate marketplace in the last few years. While other regions of the country experienced more drastic changes to prices, Peoria did not have this same luck. Home values are now on an upward swing and the economy, both nationally and locally, is starting to see sustained signs of improvement.
“I’m extremely proud of all the hard work my team accomplished in 2012,” said lead agent Adam Merrick. “We have gotten the right people in the right positions and have our systems in place to continue growing in the Peoria area. We look forward to helping even more people achieve the dream of homeownership in 2013, as we expect this year to be a great time to buy and sell in the Peoria market.”
Merrick’s team also differentiates themselves in the market by offering the Guarantee Sale program and the Love It or Leave It program. The Guarantee Sale program gives home sellers both an exit option and peace of mind. If the seller signs up for the program, Adam’s team has 30 days to sell the home with an aggressive marketing plan or the team will buy the home at a previously agreed upon cash price. The seller doesn’t get stuck owning two homes or risk losing the home of their dreams simply because the current home isn’t selling.
The second program is more about the Adam Merrick Team standing behind the homes they sell to buyers they are representing. If the buyer does not absolutely love the home purchased, Adam will pay to market that home for free at any time within the first year of purchase. “Whatever the price point, our team strives to offer million dollar service in every price range,” said Merrick.
