2023 Home Sales Better Than Expected for Sarasota Real Estate Agent Christine Pope

As I sit down to reflect on the past year, I am filled with gratitude for the incredible journey 2023 has been for me as a Sarasota area real estate agent. Against all expectations, this year has proven to be a remarkable one, and I am thrilled to share the exciting news with you. By all accounts, 2023 was predicted to be a slow year in real estate. Higher interest rates coupled with increasing inventory should have meant slower real estate sales but it didn’t. In fact, my sales volume in 2023 was double what it was in 2022 thanks to an amazing village of clients, industry partners, lenders, title companies and my coach.

A Surpassing Year of Sales
In 2023, the Sarasota real estate market exceeded all expectations, and I am delighted to have been a part of this success story. I am proud to announce that I have had the privilege of closing deals on 18 homes, resulting in a total sales volume exceeding $11 million. It’s not just about the numbers; it’s about the stories, the dreams fulfilled, and the countless smiles that have made this year truly exceptional.

Expressing Gratitude to My Clients
To my incredible sellers and buyers, thank you. Your trust in me as your real estate agent has been the driving force behind the success we’ve achieved together. It’s been an honor to guide you through the real estate journey, turning aspirations into reality. Each home sold represents more than just a transaction – it’s a testament to the partnerships we’ve forged and the milestones we’ve celebrated.

A Tapestry of Diverse Neighborhoods
The diversity of Sarasota’s neighborhoods is one of the many reasons I love what I do. In 2023, I had the privilege of facilitating transactions in a variety of communities, including Tara Preserve, West of the Trail, The Landings, Curry Cove, Esplanade at Azario in Lakewood Ranch, Whitfield Estates, Hidden Hollow, Palm-Aire, Deer Creek, Sorrento Shores, Solera, Prospect Point, Cedar Creek, Grand Palm, and several others in and around Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Osprey, Nokomis, and Bradenton. Each neighborhood has its unique charm, and it’s been a joy to connect buyers with their ideal homes and help sellers move on to new chapters in their lives.

Collaboration with Industry Professionals
Behind every successful real estate transaction is a network of dedicated professionals, and I am grateful to work alongside many reputable realtors and one of the best law offices around, Berlin Patten Ebling. Collaborating with these experts has not only streamlined the process for my clients but has also contributed to the overall success and satisfaction of everyone involved.

As the year draws to a close, I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has been a part of this incredible journey. To my clients, colleagues, and industry partners, thank you for trusting me with your real estate needs. I look forward to continuing this journey together in the years to come. Here’s to a year filled with unexpected successes, grateful hearts, and the promise of more exciting real estate adventures ahead.
