Merrick, who was in Lafayette for Van Eaton & Romero’s 2013 top producers awards presentation, praised the work of the local real estate agency’s leaders and associates for placing second only to Latter & Blum in New Orleans in total residential sales among the corporation’s four real estate companies. Just two days after making the presentation in Lafayette, Merrick signed a check for $1 million to United Way of Southeast Louisiana — the largest-ever single gift from an individual in Louisiana or Mississippi. With the pledge, he became the first person in the state to join United Way’s Million Dollar Roundtable, an exclusive circle of donors that includes Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren Buffet and George Clooney.

For 2013, Van Eaton & Romero Agents closed $598.45 million in residential sales behind Latter & Blum in New Orleans with $1.05 billion in closed residential sales.

Van Eaton & Romero held the event at City Club in River Ranch to honor its 2013 top producers in both residential and commercial real estate. Celebrating its 37th year in business, Van Eaton & Romero closed more than 3,000 transaction sides, double that of its nearest competitor.

During 2013, seven Van Eaton & Romero agents and five teams closed more than $10 million; 18 agents and two teams closed between $5 million and $10 million; 35 agents and four teams achieved a closed volume between $2.5 million and $5 million; and 44 agents and two teams closed between $1 million and $2.5 million.
 
Van Eaton & Romero’s top 10 associates, based on individual closed dollar volume, were Stacey Arceneaux, Charlie Baudoin, Adrienne Doucet, Missy Guilliot, Melanie Lunn, Lori McCarthy, Penny McGehee, Patricia Powell, Janice Simar and Arla Slaughter.
