Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates commemorated another landmark year as the region’s leading real estate brokerage at the annual Year-End Awards Dinner this evening. Marked by a night of revelry, the company celebrated its agents’ many successes throughout 2018, which included continued growth company-wide, personal milestones and collective achievements.
The comradery, energy and professionalism at Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates is unique, Owners Matt and Julie Faupel told the group during a champagne toast—not only locally, but nationally and even globally. Agents’ teamwork, and hard work, helped drive another remarkable year.
In 2018, Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates’ production increased 37 percent in sales volume and 33 percent in gross commissionable income year-over-year. The number of transactions grew 16 percent, once again establishing JHREA as the region’s top-performing brokerage.
Additionally, over the past year Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates opened a new office in Teton Village and remodeled its Thayne and Driggs offices. The company is also expanding its presence in Wyoming and Idaho, which will be announced soon.
Those are no small accomplishments, the Faupels added, and they owe entirely to agents’ dedication and professionalism.
