David Griffin & Company Realtors honored the firm’s 2016 top performing sales associates recently at the George W. Bush Presidential Library.
“Last year our sales volume increased 26 percent and our agents helped a record number of customers and clients,” David Griffin, president, said.
Exemplifying excellence in 2016 was Crystal Gonzalez, who was honored as the Company Top Producer.
“Crystal is particularly known for her outstanding performance in north Oak Cliff, where she lives,” Griffin said. “She is our youngestever top producer.”
Completing the Companywide Top 10 roster for 2016 (in alphabetical order) are: Janelle Alcantara, Sam Claussen, David Collier, Lori Ericsson, Robert Kucharski, Mark Manley, Sam
Saladino, Brandon Stewart and Courtney Tauriac.
David Griffin made the following comments at the annual meeting:
“Janelle Alcantara has created a special niche in the market working with investors who buy midcentury homes and remodel them for resale offering today’s amenities.
“Sam Claussen is building a reputation as a Realtor who can find homes for clients that are not officially on the market through his focused research of tax records.
“David Collier, a top producer with the company for two decades, is especially known as the go-to agent when it comes to homes in the Hexter Elementary School zone.
“Lori Ericsson is a great example of an agent who knows not only the close-in markets, but also who has an extensive working knowledge of helping relocation buyers.
“Robert Kucharski holds a unique position in the profession as being considered the gold standard when it comes to knowledge and service.
“Mark Manley came into real estate after working in banking. He is service oriented and is the only agent we know who has a degree as a professional butler.
“Sam Saladino was a retail legend at Neiman Marcus before embarking on his very successful residential real estate career. Always a tastemaker, Sam guides his clients on how to live in style.
“Brandon Stewart, a registered architect, has taken his professional credentials and created a highly subscribed newsletter on modern and mid-century homes, which connects his client base to the best in Dallas modern residential.
“Courtney Tauriac works tenaciously for her extensive client base. Always kind and compassionate, she really listens to give her clients the best options available in a fast-paced market.”
