REAL Trends + Tom Ferry published the 14th annual “The Thousand” list of America’s top 1,000 real estate sales professionals and teams. The national awards ranking sponsored by REAL Trends and Tom Ferry International coaching recognizes the top one-tenth of 1 percent of more than 1.4 million licensed Realtors nationwide.
“The best individual agents and teams’ award-winning efforts were phenomenal considering the competition in the real estate market,” said Steve Murray, president of Castle Rock, Colo.-based consulting company REAL Trends, which compiled the list. The Thousand is divided into four categories, each listing the top 250 designees:
• Individual Agent—Sales Volume
• Individual Agent—Transaction Sides
• Agent Team—Sales Volume
• Agent Team—Transaction Sides
“The real estate sales professionals ranked in The Thousand have proven that they have the skills to grow their businesses year after year,” said Murray. “The average U.S. Realtor sold nine homes in 2018. The average agent ranked in The Thousand sold 217 homes and the average team sold over 562 homes. These kinds of results show that those who commit to being full-time professionals can build meaningful businesses and succeed beyond expectations. Achieving this level of results is simply incredible.”
