Watters International Realty Takes Number One Spot As Austin's Top-Performing Real Estate Team
By: Watters International Realty
Austin Business Journal, a leading local news publication, annually celebrates the top real estate professionals across several service categories, from top-performing solo realtors and realtor teams to best master-planned community and custom homebuilder. These distinguished merchants exhibit the highest level of sales in the Austin real estate market.
Watters International Realty received this esteemed award based on the staggering amount of closed deals in 2021, which resulted in over $284 million in sales. Austin Business Journal features 50 winners that collectively contributed to 22% of sales, or $5 billion, in Austin's residential real estate market last year– roughly $23 billion.
Christopher Watters, CEO and Founder of Watters International Realty, says he attributes this success largely to the shift in luxury homes and abandoning Zillow Offers. Despite the number of transactions falling 34% year over year, Watters assisted the team grow closed sales volume by 5 percent.
"Our reduction in transactions came from not representing any Zillow-owned homes in 2021," Watters told Austin Business Journal. "Our growth in sales volume is largely due to capturing a greater slice of the luxury market, where we've been creating a lot of home runs for sellers of high-end homes."
No stranger to being among the top, the team at Watters International Realty has won three out of the last five awards in this category.
"Our key to success is simple: It's the team. The first 90 days in our organization are like a military boot camp with multiple test-outs... The ones that persevere stay with us for a very long time and are rewarded handsomely."
Watters International Realty is honored to be one of the top real estate businesses in Austin.
