The Bellamy Team Named to the 2017 REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Teams

North Myrtle Beach, S.C.—Aug. 3, 2017—The Bellamy Team of CENTURY 21 Thomas was named one of America’s most productive sales teams as a part of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Teams, the newly issued ranking report produced by REAL Trends and sponsored by Zillow Group.  The Bellamy Team is now a member of the “America’s Best Real Estate Teams,” and ranked number 48 for the state of South Carolina.

REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents ranks over 12,600 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2016. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. “This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends.

To qualify for inclusion, an agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2016. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume. The individuals ranked in America’s Best Real Estate Agents had an average of 73 transaction sides and an average sales volume of almost $37 million. Teams ranked in America’s Best Real Estate Agents had an average of 144 sides and an average sales volume of almost $61 million. This ensures that only the best of the best are included on the prestigious list.

“The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed 8.6 transactions in 2016 and had less than $1.3 million in sales,” said Murray. “To say that the Bellamy Team is an exceptional team is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”

 “I am honored for my team to be recognized on this ranking of the country’s top residential real estate agents,” said Bellamy. “It reinforces the time and effort that we dedicate to the clients we serve. I’m proud of my fellow real estate professionals and grateful for their hard work and commitment.”

Mayor and City Council Members and City Manager participated in Municipal Association of South Carolina Annual Meeting

North Myrtle Beach Mayor Marilyn Hatley, City Council-man Bob Cavanaugh, City Councilman Fred Coyne, City Councilwoman Nicole Fontana, and City Manager Mike Mahaney participated in the Municipal Association of South Carolina Annual Meeting held in Hilton Head, SC July 20-23.

A prevailing theme of the annual meeting was one of big cities and small towns finding success by using a variety of diverse strategies and tools to enhance what they already have, instead of embarking on drastic and costly reinvention. This preserves what is good about a community and protects against spending precious resources on impractical goals.

“This theme certainly rings true for the city of North Myrtle Beach,” said Mayor Hatley. “We are made up of four towns that joined together to preserve and grow their beach community identity, and as a City Council we continue to emphasize growth that enhances what is already good and natural about our community. We have been able to avoid the pitfalls associated with pursuing change for its own sake. As a result, North Myrtle Beach continues to experience economic and social success.”

The subject matter of the seminars in which the Mayor and City Council members participated included best practices for redevelopment, keeping residents connected to a city’s vision for the future, emerging new building codes, front line police training opportunities, an update on pending and new state legislation, breakout sessions where elected officials from various cities and towns discussed issues and challenges they face in their communities, human resources challenges in a changing world, information on the upcoming 2020 Census, and more.

The annual meeting also offered an exhibitor showcase featuring products and services designed to enhance a city’s efficiency and effectiveness.

Throughout the annual meeting, 15-minute Tech Talks addressed technology priorities for local governments.

“It’s important that we participate in these networking opportunities,” Mayor Hatley said. “Not only do we have a lot of positive experience to offer to other cities and towns, but they also have a great deal of experience and information that we can learn from and apply here at home.”
