When someone says they’re going to Florida, you would probably assume that they’re going on vacation. And when that same someone says they’re specifically headed to Miami Beach, you would definitely assume that they’re going on vacation. Well, Creig and his wife, Carla Northrop, recently took a trip to Miami and if you were assuming that they were there on vacation, you’d be wrong...
For the second consecutive year, The Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate was ranked by Real Trends as the #2 team in the nation for sales volume behind The Jills, a Miami-based Real Estate Team. The Jills, a Coldwell Banker team made up of Jill Hertzberger and Jill Eber, has established an impressive resume selling real estate in one of the most affluent areas in the United States. The Jills specialize in luxury and currently have listings on the market for as high as $37 Million.
Creig and Carla took their trip to Florida to see if they could learn how The Jills are so successful at what they do. “I like to know what the top producing teams and agents are doing to achieve success in their marketplace,” says Creig Northrop. “I can’t help it. I love what I do, and I want to do it well. There is always room to learn and improve.”
In addition to visiting The Jills, Creig and Carla also traveled to Naples, Florida to visit with John R. Wood Properties, a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®. Producing more annual home sales than any other real estate network, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® is a collection of over 500 of the finest residential real estate firms around the world – and the Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate is also one of their proud affiliates.
Creig and Carla have made visiting the top teams in the Nation a tradition. In previous years, they flew to Orange County, California to meet with a top luxury real estate agent there as well as visited another agent who specialized in condominium conversions. The incredible knowledge that they have learned from trips such as these has helped keep them the #1 Real Estate Team in Maryland for several years running.
