I’m well aware that it’s tedious to listen to me drone on and on about how many homes I’ve sold. I really don’t enjoy it, but I’m just not quite sure how to handle the situation. If I were to pack up my 2023 volume and move to Beverly Hills, it wouldn’t be all that impressive. I mean, sure I’d still be a top agent and sure I’d probably be on a television show and have to endure the massive fame of such stature, but nothing would be that different. Instead, here I am in Lake Geneva and I have no choice but to tell you I sold a few homes last year. If I don’t tell you, who will? The market is full of marketing subterfuge wherein agents who produce very little attempt to tell you that they’ve produced so very much. But data isn’t as tricky as these participants might have you believe. It’s just data, and at the end of the year agents everywhere tally it up and paste the number on their billboards. Alas, since I have no billboard, this will have to do.

For the year just ended, I was incredibly blessed to close more than $146,000,000 worth of Walworth County transactions. For some context, the next highest producing agent closed around $48M. The top Lake Geneva agent at Compass in Walworth County closed somewhere around $38M. The top Lake Geneva Sotheby’s agent closed something in the $25M range, etc and etc. The entirety of the At Properties Lake Geneva office closed $139M. The entirety of the Lake Geneva Sotheby’s office closed less than $40M… There’s not much more to say about the local “competition”. At the state level, I’ll likely be the top agent in Wisconsin for the past four consecutive years, but such a moniker won’t be available until RealTrends does their computation sometime in June.

I’m constantly aware that any potential client has an almost unlimited array of options when it comes the agent and broker they choose to represent their Lake Geneva interests. And I’m equally aware that I would have no business whatsoever without the loyalty of my prized clients. For that, I’m eternally grateful. This is a relationship business that lives and dies on the strength of an agent’s network, not on the strength of their back office software or CRM tools. It’s not a technology business, no matter what the Johnny-come-lately brokerages say. And if you want proof that what I’m saying is the honest truth, look no further than these Lake Geneva statistics.

The good news is I have no interest in slowing down now, and look forward to helping the discerning lakefront set buy and sell in this, the most powerful upper bracket market in the entire Midwest. On market or off market, if you’re seeking discreet guidance through this nuanced lakefront market, I’m at your service.

Above, a reminder of a house I sold (both sides, nonetheless), no matter the marketing subterfuge.

I'm David Curry. I write this blog to educate and entertain those who subscribe to the theory that Lake Geneva, Wisconsin is indeed the center of the real estate universe. When I started selling real estate 27 years ago I did so of a desire to one day dominate the activity in the Lake Geneva vacation home market. With over $800,000,000 in sales since January of 2010, that goal is within reach. If I can help you with your Lake Geneva real estate needs, please consider me at your service. Thanks for reading.
