David Plivelich Joins the Team!

We are happy to announce that David Plivilech, Buyers Agent, REALTOR, recently joined The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group. David has several years' experience as a local REALTOR. He embarked on his real estate voyage after a 30+ year career as a store manager for Safeway, Inc., in the MD and DE areas. Excited to have launched a second career in real estate, David builds upon his love of working in customer service and meeting new clients by striving to help them achieve their goals of home ownership. He loves matching clients with new homes, and he and his family have lived in historic homes both in Baltimore and here in Lewes. Having grown up in an Air Force family, David is highly familiar with moving and the joys of finding the right home! He and his wife of 28 years, Robin, have two sons; one owns local company Plivelich Lawn and Landscaping, Inc., and the other is studying at Virginia Tech. David quickly became an active part of the Lewes and Delaware beach community with support of charitable causes, including breast cancer and prostate cancer research and Habitat for Humanity.

Welcome, David!

Celebrating the BHHS Gallo Realty Family

 

Celebrating 2015 with our BHHS Gallo Family

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group is proud to be part of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty family - both as a sales team and literally as “family” (Lee Ann’s parents, Bette and Sal Gallo founded Gallo Realty). We’re especially aware of this real estate family connection at our annual sales meeting, which was January 13, 2016 at the Baycenter in Dewey Beach. As we do each year, our entire team from Lewes, Rehoboth Beach and Bethany Beach offices got together to celebrate the hard work of the prior year and recommit to our ultimate goal of being “community-minded and customer-focused.”

As our company Vice President and Rehoboth Beach broker, Andrew Ratner, shared at the meeting, BHHS Gallo Realty is now 120+ agents strong. This past year marked the highest total number of closed transactions in our company history – 852 – and $306 million in sales volume. Our company welcomed 13 new sales agents last year and celebrated individual and team accomplishments both in the sales and rental departments.


The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group was honored to receive top award, The Chairman’s Circle Diamond Award, for over $100 million in sales volume.

On the national level, the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network is composed of over 40,000 agents in 1,200 offices in 47 states. In 2016, BHHS will: launch a new television commercial; sponsor another sweepstakes program in conjunction with HGTV; participate in networking groups including ReThink Council, the National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals, and Facebook groups; refine its Luxury Collection brand; and expand into an international franchise.

Read more about the meeting and awards here in The Cape Gazette article.

We thank all of our fellow team members and clients for an exceptional 2015!

Observing Memorial Day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As we celebrate the unofficial beginning of our summer season at the beach, members of The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty are pausing to observe the true meaning of the day – remembering the men and women who died in all U.S. wars, in active military service to our country.

 

Our offices will be closed on Monday, May 25.


We thank all veterans and members of all branches of the U.S. military. On Monday, as we enjoy our families, friends, and the many things we are thankful for in our community, we will particularly reflect on the families who are missing their loved ones who died in service. Our thoughts are with you.

 

Here are a few Memorial Day links:

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group: 8th in the Nation in BHHS Network

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group is Honored by Award

 

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group Ranked #8 in Nation for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices and #1 in 17-state Southern Region

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices (BHHS), the real estate division of CEO Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway global companies, held its annual convention from March 22-24, 2015, in Las Vegas. The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group of BHHS Gallo Realty in Lewes, Delaware, was announced as 8th in sales out of more than 35,000 agents nationwide for both units sold and total gross commission income (GCI) for 2014.

“We are thrilled and honored to earn these national awards and to be recognized on the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices stage for our performance both within the nationwide network and in our local beach real estate community,” explained Chris Holt, chief operating officer for The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group. “Truly the greatest honor for us, however, is the continued trust and commitment of our local clients who choose us to help them buy and sell their homes. This client loyalty and trust is what motivates us to deliver superior service and outstanding results day in and day out. We cannot thank them enough.”

The team’s 2014 distinction marks the third year in a row that The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group made the top ten nationally for both units sold and GCI. Additionally, Wilkinson and her team earned the “Top of the Rock” award, which goes to the #1 team in the 17-state Southern region of the United States.

“The awards at the annual convention always amaze me,” Lee Ann Wilkinson remarked. “My team’s focus every day is to strengthen our network of buyers and sellers so we can bring both together more effectively and efficiently. Earning recognition nationally for this dedication is incredibly humbling, and interacting with our colleagues nationwide is always eye opening. There’s so much to learn and keep up on in the ever-changing real estate world. I make sure to come home from each national convention with at least one new idea to improve our real estate practice.”

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group has been serving buyers and sellers in the Sussex County beach community for over 30 years. According to the Sussex County Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data, Wilkinson and her team has ranked #1 in sales for the last 16 consecutive years.

Vice President of BHHS Gallo Realty Andrew Ratner commended the group and stated, “I applaud Lee Ann and her team for their outstanding achievement. It comes as no surprise - as they are a customer-centric sales team that is always focused on meeting customer needs. The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group exemplifies the high level of customer service that our company strives to achieve with each transaction.”

Berkshire Hathaway and Prudential Gallo, REALTORS in 2014

Winds of Change are Positive

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group shares the excitement of our parent company, Prudential Gallo, REALTORS, to be transitioning to a new franchise affiliation with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in early January 2014.  The franchise agreement between Berkshire Hathaway and Prudential Gallo, REALTORS was officially announced earlier this week. 

With this exciting change, The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group and Prudential Gallo, REALTORS will become affiliated with what is widely recognized as the most successful and admired business organization worldwide.  We are extremely confident that this move will enable us to serve our clients and customers to the highest degree in the industry. Best of all for us, our company will remain family-owned and operated – a significant source of personal commitment and pride.

Another source of great pride for us is that Prudential Gallo, REALTORS was one of the top 75 of nearly 500 Prudential franchises to be invited to transition to Berkshire Hathaway in the initial roll-out.  We believe this distinction speaks to the confidence of Berkshire Hathaway and its leader, Warren Buffet, to invest in our real estate market, which is a great sign for all of us as home buyers and sellers.

Be sure to look for more information and a new marketing design from The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group as the name change takes effect!
