Looking back over 2010, a lot of Realtors had years like Felix Hernandez — minus the accolades.
Felix Hernandez is the Seattle Mariners’ pitcher who just won the AL Cy Young award, despite only having a measly 13 wins (he also had 232 strikeouts and a league-leading 2.27 ERA).
Stellar Performance in a Tough Market
What made those statistics award-winning is that Hernandez compiled them for a last-place team, the 61-101 Mariners.
Similarly, many Realtors have done stellar, tireless work this year marketing and showing homes, educating their clients about the process, writing offers, etc.
However, due to a slow housing market and still-recovering economy, they have few decisions (closed deals) to show for it.
(Real estate really should — but doesn’t — have something analogous to baseball’s ERA, or earned run average.)
