Michael Pierson and Chris Eigel, principal partners of the prestigious Chicago real estate firm Prudential Rubloff Properties, are pleased to announce an increase of 25.7% in closed volume for 2012 as compared to 2011*. The firm also increased its market share for all closed business in 2012. The duo attributes the increase in volume and market share to Prudential Rubloff’s talented sales team and the improving economic conditions.
Pierson and Eigel reflected on Prudential Rubloff’s accomplishments in 2012. “It was an exciting year for Prudential Rubloff,” said Pierson, president and chairman. “In addition to increases in volume and market share, we launched Rubloff Insurance and Rubloff Vacation Rentals where, in its first year, we assisted in over 500 transactions. Through our Relocation Department, we assisted hundreds of third party transferees, a significant amount of relocation business.”
Eigel, CEO, added, “Prudential Rubloff agents have the highest productivity per agent and the highest average sale price in MRED among the top five firms at $474,102. Our firm continues to attract exceptional agents – over 150 new associates joined us in 2012 simply because we support them every step of the way with marketing and technology programs and services.
Pierson and Eigel agreed that they are equally proud of their philanthropic activities through Prudential Rubloff Cares. In 2012, the company raised $24,000 for the Sunshine Kids Organization, a national non-profit organization that plans activities for children undergoing cancer treatment. For the second year in a row, the funds were donated in Wendy Bergseth’s name. Ms. Bergseth was the former executive vice president and Lake Forest office Managing Broker.
