PRLog - Feb. 12, 2013 - CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- Growth is the watchword for Southwest Florida real estate in 2013, according to AJ Ackerman, REALTOR® at Century 21 Sunbelt in Cape Coral. His team, Randy Peska & Partners, plans to double its workforce this year from fifteen to thirty, after doubling from seven employees in the last three years.

Ackerman says the job growth is driven by an increase in home sale prices and a returning demand for new construction. “The median sale price is up 43% since 2011. That means sellers increasingly want to sell. And home builders are pulling more permits. Last month Lee County issued 54 permits for new single-family homes, which is a 50% increase over January 2012.”
More sellers and more construction means more real estate transactions, which means Ackerman needs more talent, but not just anyone will do. “I know about the frustrations people face when they sell a home, and it’s my mission to make sure they’re taken care of,” explains Ackerman. “Everything I do, whether it’s education, sales, training or hiring, comes from my passion for helping people. I only want to add people to the team who share this philosophy.”
