THE FIRST QUARTER RESULTS FOR SAN JUAN ISLAND were a puzzle to me and required extra analysis. San Juan Island’s dollar volume for the quarter reflected a decrease of 28% as compared to the same quarter in 2017. In 2017 the dollar volume was a 31% increase over 2016 which was a 20% decrease from 2015. Similar to a rollercoaster for San Juan. The County’s first quarter dollar volume reflected an increase of 3.3% in 2018 as compared to 2017. The transaction numbers for San Juan reflected a decrease of 27% compared to 2017. The County’s transaction number also reflected a decrease, however; it was only 7%.
