Louisville, KY (PressExposure) September 26, 2011 -- Keller Williams Realty would like to announce the formation of a new residential sales team - the Jimmy Welch team at its Louisville, KY East Office. Residential sales agents, Jodie Wild and Nick Peskoe will join seasoned agent Jimmy Welch and Vice President of Marketing Amanda Wilson on the newly formed team.
Ms. Wild will serve as a buyer's specialist for the team while Mr. Peskoe will focus on lead generation and conversion. Ms. Wild, for one, is very much looking forward to working with the Jimmy Welch Team.
"I'm very excited for the opportunity to work for someone with as much experience and industry knowledge as Jimmy Welch. When you think of the industry leaders in Louisville, he is one of the first agents who come to mind and I just couldn't turn down such a great opportunity to work with one of the best in this business."
The new team has its sights on some lofty goals. According to team leader Jimmy Welch, the team is hoping to become one of the top teams in Louisville in short order and eventually garner enough sales to become the leader for the Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio markets.
"We think this team has the potential to do something special in this market," Jimmy said. Nick agrees with that premise: "When you think about it, it's kind of the perfect storm of circumstances. Jimmy has the name recognition which brings in a lot of listings and Jodie specializes in buyer leads. When you put the two together, it's almost like forming the A-Team of Real Estate. I'm just hoping I can keep up (laughs)."
With the formation of the new team, more responsibility will fall on VP of Marketing, Amanda Wilson, but according to her, she's up for the challenge. "Marketing a team concept requires a lot more of a comprehensive plan than for an individual agent. Jimmy's name recognition went a long way towards generating new business, but now I have to remain focused on getting Nick and Jodie's names out there too. I'm really looking forward to building the Jimmy Welch Team brand."
Previously, Jodie Wild worked as a buyer's specialist for the River Valley Group and Nick Peskoe is a recent graduate of the prestigious Kelley School of Business at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN.
With this formation of the Jimmy Welch team, Keller Williams looks to build upon its growing market share, in which the company has recently become the third largest brokerage in the Louisville, KY residential real estate market and the second largest real estate firm in the United States.
