ESTERO, Fla. (Sept. 28, 2021) — Estero Realtor Kevin Bartlett posted 100% growth in real estate transactions through mid-September compared with the same period last year, vaulting the 26-year-old into an elite group of top-performing agents in Southwest Florida.
Bartlett, a native of Estero and graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University, has earned numerous awards since he joined Realty World J. Pavich Real Estate as a broker associate. In 2020, Bartlett sold more than $20 million worth of real estate throughout Southwest Florida.
This year through mid-September, Bartlett has helped buyers and sellers successfully complete 150 transactions valued at more than $40 million. “We expect to eclipse 200 transactions worth more than $50 million by the end of the year,” Bartlett says.
Strong demographic trends continue to drive sales, Bartlett says. “We’re seeing fewer homes being purchased for vacations and more people relocating to Southwest Florida permanently.”
Because more people are moving to Southwest Florida to live year-round, amenities in and around communities have become more important. In addition, Bartlett says people are seeking bigger lots so they can have a back yard and more green space.
Low inventory of homes for sale will continue to push home prices higher as continued migration to Southwest Florida offsets any new developments, Bartlett forecasts. Interest rates will also continue to remain low, providing financing that should propel the market forward through the end of the year.
Bartlett attributes this year’s success to his firm’s dedication to clients and aggressive marketing. “We just have a hunger for business, we treat people right and have a balanced approach in terms of closing the deal and getting our clients the absolute best value for their purchase or sale,” he says.
