What a year it has been!
by Bob Mueller, Broker
As we near the end of 2017 I have the pleasure of recalling a very good year. In fact it was/is the second best year we have ever had since I became broker of Century 21 Northside just over 5 years ago. In the fall of 2012 we began our journey with just 4 agents. Three of those four are still with us (Alfred Perez, Mark Castricone and David Sawyer). We now have over 150 agents with over 50 added this year.
Several highlights of 2017 come to mind. We added the large training room, which has enhanced our on-site capabilities. We had the terrific Floyd Wickman training with coach Mary Pallin and memory training by Craig Krause, and who could forget the delicious breakfast meetings at Mimi’s. We had an inspiring top agent retreat at my home on the Blanco River. We all enjoyed a really fun Halloween party and we had a really cool and fun Christmas party at the Bowl & Barrel.
Several personnel changes during the year included naming Christina Valero as Assistant Director of Operations reporting to Rick and Kayleigh Gotschall as contracts administrator reporting to Belinda. I want to thank Angie Bryant, Robin Rowe and Christine Gerhard for all their help, and we will miss Raquel’s smiling face at the front desk.
I really look forward to next year. 2018 will be exciting and promises to take C21 Northside agents to new individual and collective heights. Century 21 has a terrific new president in Nick Bailey who comes to C21 from Zillow. He has a lot of state of the art experience and has vowed to lead the rebirth of our brand to the highest levels of technical capability and agent and customer service we have ever had.
AND Nick has just confirmed that he will join us in San Antonio for our awards banquet next April 5th. That will be a grand, exciting and fun affair that I hope everyone will attend.
We are so fortunate to live and work in Texas, and especially San Antonio. Texas enjoys one of the strongest economies led by job growth in the entire U.S. San Antonio is a premier city in Texas with abundant potential. We just need to follow our training and persist in doing what we know to do and I am sure that 2018 will be our best year ever.
I really look forward to working and sharing success with each of you.
Kindest personal regards to each of you and have a great Christmas and new year.
