The Jelmberg Team has smashed all previous records for sales since the reopening after the shutdown. With 21 transactions in June of 2020, incredible 11 transactions in the first 6 days of July 2020 and a total of $45 million in sales since the start of the year has made this one of our most productive starts to a Summer on record.
So why has this boon in the Jelmberg Team’s sales happened now?
There are 5 reasons for surge in home sales by the Jelmberg Team.
1. Effective marketing strategies
Since their inception The Jelmberg Team has leveraged technology to stay ahead of the competition. During the pandemic shutdown the Jelmberg Team focused on social media marketing, virtual open houses/tours, new Matterport 3D virtual tours that allowed our agents to continue selling homes with some instances of homes purchased site unseen! This ability to rely on new tech kept our team in close contact with our clients allowing for the team to rebound from the shutdown very quickly.
2. Full service virtual selling
Jelmberg Team invested in the technologies to allow our clients to buy and sell home despite some of the challenges of the pandemic. This program has proved indespensible to buyers and sellers alike.

3. A highly productive website – Our site reaches over 20,000 people each month!
Real estate today, like most other other industries, relies heavily on our significant web presence to reach new and previous clients. The Jelmberg Team’s Website is one of the most viewed sites in the Coachella Valley for any real estate team or brokerage. With over 800 users on our site each day and approximately 23,000 unique users a month our site connects buyers with listings with great efficiency. This highly productive website has lead to a quick rebound post-shutdown and contributed greatly to the record breaking June and July for our team. After-all, over 90% of home searches start online!
4. Pent-up demand / low inventory
Post-pandemic inventory and sales have seen an increase in demand from buyers due to a pent-up demand and a decrease in inventory. Our team provides bi-monthly updates on the market and is outlined in our most recent update entitled “Coachella Valley Housing Market Update: July 2020 Unexpected Benefit of the Shutdown” which explains the recent market trends moving towards a seller’s market.

5. Effective use of a database of thousands of active buyers
Jelmberg Team has built up a database of past clients, new buyers and real estate investors over the past 8 years. This resource became of paramount importance in June and July of 2020 where our team leveraged this tool to help our clients find the right property at the right price by keeping in touch with them throughout the shutdown.
The combination of these 5 resources has allowed our team to complete 32 transactions in only 36 days!
