A 50's Happy Days theme was perfect for the Crye-Leike, REALTORS annual training conference recently held in Sandestin, Florida where agents and managers gathered to discuss the improving housing market.


Crye-Leike associates from the company's nine state southern region heard from cofounders Harold Crye and Dick Leike that the home sales volume is up for Crye-Leike 19% so far this year compared to figures from last September.


This was more great real estate news for the agents to celebrate after they heard in January that Crye-Leike also improved its home sales in 2012 achieving a $4.5 billion sales volume which was a total $700 million dollars higher than sales seen in 2011.


About 400 Crye-Leike agents and managers shared success stories and heard lots of positive news about the happier days that have been happening in the real estate market the past two years as the housing industry has been in recovery mode.


To help its agents offer outstanding customer service to their clients, Crye-Leike's 2013 company conference included lots of top-notch training seminars and guest speakers Dirk Zeller and Alex Milshteyn who are both experts working in the real estate industry.


After redefining effective techniques and learning many new innovative skills to help buyers and sellers, Crye-Leike's agents celebrated the improving housing market with lots of fun-filled activities including a talent show, sock hop dance, hula hoop contest, golf tournament, volleyball tournament, a networking vendor show and many other exciting events.


With Crye-Leike expecting to sell even more homes in 2013 than the 28,065 homes it sold in 2012, the company's Realtors remain hopeful that happy days will continue to be seen in the housing industry as they look forward to helping clients create many more, happy home buying and selling experiences.
