Members of the John R. Wood leadership team recently attended the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) Annual Conference Week in Las Vegas where President, Phil Wood, and Director, Relocations and Referrals, Ginny Alexander, were honored with the Awards of Excellence Outgoing Referral Production (RP) in the firm’s category.
The award recognizes companies that are best able to assist customers with their real estate needs around the world. Nearly 50 percent of John R. Wood agents, did in fact, assist customers by helping them locate a reputable real estate company in a non-Southwest Florida area.
“The Wood firm uses the extensive connections of Luxury Portfolio and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® to provide clients with reliable professionals in other areas of the globe, whether the customer needs to purchase or sell in that area. John R. Wood is deeply honored to receive the Outgoing Referral Production award, particularly because it is based on results by units among the best names in real estate and the world’s leading independent brokerages,” said Phil Wood, President of John R. Wood Properties.
With an elite audience of nearly 3,000 real estate professionals from 24 countries, six other members of LeadingRE were nominated for the Awards of Excellence; Michael Sanders and Company of Sarasota, Coach Real Estate Associates, Inc. of New York, Jack Conway and Company of Massachusetts, Lyon Real Estate of Sacrament, CA, and Shorewest, REALTORS®. According to Ginny Alexander, “The companies were measured for sending the most outgoing referrals per agents, and John R. Wood won the prestigious award for having the highest production percentage per agent.”
The conference was open only to brokers, managers and relocation professionals affiliated with LeadingRE, an invitation-only network of the highest quality independent real estate companies, and John R. Wood was nominated for multiple awards and honors. The Wood firm was also slated for Outgoing Sales Production (SPR), Equivalent Outgoing Sales Production, Crown of Excellence Award, and the Diamond Award.
The Wood firm also participated in a LeadingRE marketing contest and brought home two other accolades: 1) John R. Wood Properties was given an Honorable Mention for a consumer materials piece, and 2) Second Place for an internal video.
