Wow…It has been a while since I have posted an article here! I’ve been a bit busy with life and being a Real Estate Agent.
I just wanted share an update on how my real estate sales business did this year.
This was my first full year as a real estate agent, so it has allowed me to look over my numbers and performance to establish a baseline to grow from. Here are the highlights.
In the past year, I added 398 contacts to my database. What is the big deal about that? For every fifty people that you market to at least 12 times a year, you can expect one sale. So that allowed me to add four potential additional sales a year going forward.
Out of those contacts, 275 were potential buyers or sellers. That lead to a total of 87 sales opportunities, with 24 being listing opportunities and 63 being buyer opportunities.
I closed 16 total units with a production volume of $2,464,390. That was 7 listings at $880,500 and 9 buyer sales at $1,583,890. The average sale amount was $154,024.
I ended the year with 5 pending deals carried into 2022. 4 listings and 1 buyer. As of today, 17-Jan-2022, one of those listings has closed and buyer sale should close this week.
Remember, if you have a real estate need, whether buying or selling, give me a call or shoot me an email. It doesn’t matter if you are outside of my area, I can connect you with a Rockstar Real Estate Agent!

Now for the business breakdown…I had a Gross Revenue of $81,468. This included $68,581 of Gross Commission Income, $9,574 in referral Commission, and $3,308 of sales of oilfield testing equipment liquidated for a client.
Out of that, I paid $20,502 in “Company Dollar”, (split of my commission to the brokerage), $4,115 in Royalties to Keller Williams Realty International, $1,624 COGS, (client split of testing equipment sales), and $9,397 in operating expenses. OPEX includes advertising, training, dues, professional fees, etc.
Overall, I had a Gross Profit of $37,720 before taxes.
Not a bad start for my first full year! AND, this was while also serving as the Market Center Tech Trainer, in addition to the whole area shutting down for the whole month of September due to Hurricane Ida.
