OPF/ERA led its nearest competitor in sales volume with a 13.82 percent margin and a mar- ket share of 36.47 percent for res- idences selling for more than $500,000. It also led the metro area for homes that sold tbr more than $350,000, giving the compa- ny a 33.4.2 Percent market share and a 30.80 percent share for resi- dences priced higher than $230.000. In what was one of its best years ever, the No. 1 ERA compa- ny gave back to the community through corporate giving, individ- ual participation, and sponsorship of programs and causes that bene- fited those who needed it most in the Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania regions. OPF/ERA sponsored real-time closed cap- tioning on WJZ-TVI3 newscasts for the deaf and hearing impaired. It was also instrumental in cham- pioning the House With A Heart Foundation's major fundraiser - a house raffle - to help raise money so homeless shelters and service agencies across Maryland could continue tO assist individuals and families become independent again. Individual participation was carried out at local OPF/ERA of- rices for events such as Children's Safety Day, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation 5K Race and Habitat for Humanity. Since community residents staff the company's 47 offices, neigh- borhoods in those areas benefited directly from individual sales as- sociate and office philanthropic efforts during the year. Contribu- tions or donations in-kind, such as food collected for the Harvest for the Hungry and gifts for the Toys for Tots program, were distributed directly to needy people within the community. Overall, the com- pany as well as associates gave their time, resources and energy to many worthwhile causes in 2000. "The internet is transforming the way we do business," said John Evans, O'Conor, Piper & Flynn ERA president and CEO. "Partnering with local AOL al- lows OPF/ERA to reach a broader segment of people who are active- ly looking for homes in Maryland and Delaware. As the internet grows, businesses will have to ad- just to meet the ever-changing de- mands of consumers, and O'- Conor, Piper & Flynn ERA will be there. Our e-business strategy is to be proactive instead of reac- tive with today's internet-empow- ered consumer." The company president vowed to continue OPF's dedication in providing the best customer serv- ice of any real estate company to their clientele in 2001. "'We will continue to listen to our clients" needs, strengthen our relation- ships with the communities we serve and seek every opportunity to better serve the public in 2001 ." Evans also expressed apprecia- tion to the more than 2100 OPF/ERA sales associates for (heir commitment and profession- alism in helping the company achieve the best year ever in the history of the company. "We are proud of each and every one of our sales associates who worked so hard to make 2000 a year to re- member," he said.
