Momentum from our record-breaking billion-dollar year in 2012 is continuing to set the pace in 2013. We’re proud that Allie Beth Allman & Associates significantly contributed to the state’s total residential sales of $49.8 billion, as Texas leads the nation’s housing recovery. This summer, the North Texas housing market was hotter than Texas temperatures. In May, more homes were sold in one month in this market than ever before—up 23% compared to May of 2012. With average sale prices up 10% and average days on the market down 20%, ensuring that our clients benefit from the trends is top-of-mind for our agents every day. It’s not one agent or team that enables Allie Beth Allman & Associates to stay on top, it’s all of our agents performing at their best no matter the size of the transaction.
