BloomTree Realty is pleased to announce that Theresa Koshollek and Tracey Anderson, two of Prescott’s top real estate agents,  have now joined the BloomTree Realty crew! Theresa and Tracy, previously with Realty Executives Northern Arizona, will fit nicely in the BloomTree family. They are both dedicated to raising the bar in the real estate industry through education, service, and a friendly approach.

In any business, being committed to continuous improvement and education is crucial to rise above the competition. The real estate business is no exception. Theresa has a Bachelor of Science in Business Management, and she has demonstrated her commitment to ongoing education by completing some of the most respected certifications, in the real estate industry. She has earned her CRS designation and is now a Certified Real Estate Specialist. The CRS requires a minimum of 25 transactions or 8 million dollars in sales, and it is the highest credential awarded to residential sales agents, managers, and brokers. Theresa has also earned her GRI certification from the Realtor Institute.

Theresa is confident that BloomTree’s additional training and cooperative, shared knowledge approach will  benefit both her and her partner, Tracey Anderson. Although Tracy is newer to the business than Theresa, she has successfully taken off with her real estate career.  It will be exciting to see how far they both can grow!

In addition to the benefits of furthering their education, another big reason for Theresa and Tracey’s career move is that they both feel that using the most current technology is crucial for agents, in today’s market. BloomTree Realty is the local leader in technology.  From the new interactive window display in the downtown Prescott office, which provides exceptional exposure for listings, to the agent tech package that BloomTree offers, BloomTree Realty has  worked diligently to provide its agents with the “best of the best”. Beginning in early 2016, BloomTree will be taking technology to the next level.  Stay tuned!

BloomTree is pleased to have Theresa and Tracey on board, and the brokerage is looking forward to a great 2016!

  • It should be noted that Wall Street had forecast starts rising to a 1.04 million-unit pace.
  • For all of 2014, groundbreaking increased 8.8 percent to 1.01 million units, the highest since 2007.
