In addition, Chief Operating Officer Christy Belt Grossman served as an expert panelist for two breakout sessions: “Their 80% Is Your 20%” and “Win-Win Agent Assistant Relationships”
“I am thrilled that The Belt Team ranks among the elite teams in the country,” said Christy, “Our ranking affords us access not only to tools, technologies, and resources that uniquely benefit our clients, but also to some of the top minds in the industry. That’s a win-win for us and for our clients. Our mission is to change families’ lives for the better – one family at a time. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to do that 142 times last year and look forward to helping even more families this year.”
Terry Belt, CEO of The Belt Team added, “As our market turns around, it is more important than ever that buyers and sellers work with uber experienced Realtors. Market conditions are good, but still volatile. We are seeing competing contracts, low inventory, appraisal issues and financing challenges. The good news is, homes are selling and selling quickly. The better your agent is, the better you can protect your investment, whether you are a buyer or seller.”
