Local real estate agents Chris Barrington-Foote and John Byrne were honoured Friday June 3 at the 2016 Sutton Group – West Coast Realty Awards Breakfast for achieving record breaking sales on Vancouver Island in 2015.
The duo are the first agents ever on the island to receive Sutton’s special Pinnacle Award, in recognition of having achieved over $26 million in real estate sales last year.
“It is an incredible honour to receive such special recognition for having achieved the highest real estate sales of all Sutton agents on Vancouver Island, ever,” says Barrington-Foote. “John and I always set out first to build strong relationships with our clients, based on excellent customer service and honest, reliable advice. It is our focus on providing great service that ultimately lead to our success in sales.”
After nearly 2 decades of combined experience working in the Victoria real estate market, Chris and John have only been working in partnership for a little under two years. Since joining together the duo have been the top sales team at Sutton West Coast Reality Victoria, and are recognized as one of the top real estate partnerships in the region.
“Chris and I are always trying to work smarter,” says Byrne. “The real estate market on the west coast is very active right now and the competition among agents is high. Regardless of the market conditions, the keys to being a successful agent will always be the same – treat your clients well, follow through on your promises, know the nuisances of your local market, establish a solid network, and work hard!”
