Real Estate Sales up 602% For The Cascade Team in 2009

Build a better mouse trap and the world will beat a path to your door... It appears that old adage is also true in the real estate market even during the bleak periods of 2009. The Cascade Team Real Estate was founded by two local agents on the eastside back in 2006. Their motto says it all: "Simply Outrageous Service! Not Outrageous Commissions!"

The Cascade Team provides complete full service real estate just like the big name brick and mortar operations. Only instead of spending their money on costly buildings and overhead, they invest in marketing and advertising for all the listings taken by the brokerage. The results; Clients get full service real estate for only 1% listing fees compared to the traditional 3% (Saving $10,000 on a $500,000home) and the company is profitable and expanding!

In a decidedly down year for Real Estate:

1) The Cascade Team Sales are up 602%! They handled 119 Real Estate Transactions in 2008/ In 2009 that number was 724 Real Estate Transactions!
2) The Cascade Team Days on Market averaged 82 for Residential (3 days better than the 2008 number) The rest of the NWMLS averaged 95 Days on Market for Residential
3) The Cascade Team Days on Market for Condominium averaged 70 (1 day better than 2008) The rest of the NWMLS averaged 108 Days on Market for Condos
4) The Cascade Team doubled in Agent count in 2009 while the average brokerage dropped in agent count by 12%
5) The Cascade Team opened 2 NEW offices in 2009 while Windermere, John L Scott, Re/Max and CB Bain all closed offices
6) The Cascade Team has expanded into the San Diego market and is looking to add LA, San Francisco, and Portland in 2010

Happy Holidays

I just wanted to take a moment and say Happy Holidays to all of you! It’s been a wonderful year and I hope all of the friends, family, members and clients of The Cascade Team know that you are greatly appreciated!

The Cascade Team has opened two new offices in Wa and we have also opened our first California office in San Diego all in 2009. (We have five offices now!) In addition, we have approximately doubled our agent count, and more impressively we have grown our number of transactions by over 600%! That’s pretty amazing growth considering the economy of 2009. While the majority of Brokerages we closing offices and losing agents and certainly doing less business, The Cascade Team was fortunate enough to be a bright spot in the real estate industry!

We have a lot of great things planned for 2010. San Diego will be going full force, we will continue to hire and expand in WA. New and innovative features will be integrated into the website shortly after the 1st of the year. We will also launch the POWER Platform in mid-January which will help catapult the agents that participate into the upper echelons of all agents nationwide.

As for continued growth in 2010, we have our eyes on Portland, Los Angeles and San Francisco. (No resting around here any time soon!)

The Cascade Team also enjoyed an amazing responce to our Community Service events. We delivered nearly 30,000 crayones to Children's Hospital of Seattle, worked with Encompass NW, Eastside Baby Corner and were part of Snoqualmie Rail Road Days, The Festival at Mt Si, Green Halloween in Issaquah, 4th of July Snow-Cones, and Christmas Sleigh Rides in Issaquah and Snoqualmie.

It's a pleasure to work with such a wonderful Team of people, to have the great business partners we have, and to enjoy a great group of friends, clients and supporters. It’s an honor to know and work with each of you!

2010 is poised to be an amazing year and I’m looking forward to sharing in it with you all!
