Sarasota, FL— April 6, 2016 — In February, The Realtors® Association of Sarasota and Manatee released a report that stated that “the end of 2015 witnessed record-breaking sales”, and that “our real estate community will continue to see steady, sustainable growth in the first quarter of 2016.” Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty’s Abbe-Mullinnix Team has seen this prediction come to fruition, ending the first quarter of 2016 with a record-breaking number of closed sales.
The team had 13 closed transaction sides, representing over $10 million dollars in closed sales volume in January, February and March 2016. Despite an early Easter, and hence a predicted early end to the “selling season” in the Sarasota area, indications are that the market remains strong and active. “We are pleased to continue to assist buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals, and look forward to doing so throughout the remainder of the year.”, the team says. As they look past the first quarter, Betty Mullinnix and Steve Abbe are encouraged by the number of pending contracts they currently have, scheduled to close in the month of April.
Joining Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty in late 2014, the team works from the Palmer Ranch Branch Office located on South Tamiami Trail. Mullinnix, Associate Broker, and Abbe, a PGA Golf Professional have nearly a half century of combined real estate experience. Consistently ranked in the Top 1% of area Realtors® they list and sell in all areas and price ranges. However, the team’s specialty is golf properties, and no other Realtor® sells more golf properties in the area than Abbe-Mullinnix.
