Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor

I was named as one of the 100 Most Influential Agents in North Carolina in 2016 and as a 5-Star Agent in Charlotte (for the 10th year running). What this tells me is how much my clients do appreciate what I do for them. My business in 2016 continued to be driven primarily by repeat and referral sources... always a goal for me and also tells me that I'm doing something right. Congratulations on the CRS; did mine some 18 years ago.

I got a call from a professionals who found out that I knew how to assemble and put under contract land parcels with no excuses. I was told to hit an area and secure as many deals as could be done in a critical time window. I exceeded their expectations and brought under consideration nearly 60 acres. I was glad to be of service and they were glad to receive it

I actually quit school at 16 and went through a nasty divorce in January of 2016 .... so I got my GED, went to real estate school, got an 87 on the school test and passed the state exam on the first try. That was enough for me!

I was able to overcome a low appraisal in just 24 hours on a VIP client's home sale, just with rebutting in writing and providing comps.  The same comps that had been presented to the appraiser when he was by the house.

2016 was not an accomplishment year IMO - hopefully now that we have a president who cares about the citizens it will prove to be a better 2017

Good ridance to bad rubbish!

Hi Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, CRS - First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on the CRS Designation - THE best designation out there and I too, am proud to have mine!

I also have achieved the Top 200 Agents in America's Platinum Level Customer Service Award again this year - independent survey of all buyers' and sellers' after Closing.

5-Star Agent (named each year since its inception in Charlotte but, I do not buy into their propaganda)!

10-Best in North Carolina for Customer Service from American Institute of Real Estate Professionals.

MOST importantly, this year I had 3 clients who each referred me 4 buyers and sellers!  They say that everyone knows 4 people in their lives each year who are moving and if we can get one of those from each of our past clients, we're in good shape!  To have 3 past clients actually refer 4 of their friends and family (EACH), was THE single best award I got all year - means so much more to me than any 'award!'

I listed and SOLD or had the buyer for a total of 4 properties -- all in the same subdivision - within one month.  Twice this year -- two different subdivisions.  And one of these was a double bubble. Oh Yeah!   Okay I'm done bragging.

Pretty much business as usual here.  Had a few real "fun" deals where I learned a bunch or had to school the other agent.

I got through the year with only great transactions.  Some were big.  Some were small.  But every one had wonderful clients and were smooth like butter.

Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, CRS - for me, the biggest personal satisfaction is - spreading Buffini & Company's message of impacting and improving lives of people.

Though with lots of challenges on the personal front, my business did not reach the height I wanted to achieve, the satisfaction of being a mentor for many Peak Producers is my biggest rewards.

Some of my students doubled their income and had the best year ever - and now, I am going to teach at least 12 new students in my Peak Producers training starting in January 2017.

First, I started a newsletter in March, 2016 for the condo complex I ive in. An owner called me wanting to list his condo because he had read my newsletter.

Then a buyer came along who bought that condo and another one of my listings that same day. As a result of that effort and cost, I will receive a $12,400 commission check on January 6, 2017. This is the most direct example of my newsletter's efectiveness, but there are many indirect benefits I received from it this year.

Second, I started my own brokerage.

It's been a great year and I anticipate the coming year will even be better. Thomas I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year!
