Fourteenth annual real estate ranking advertised in The Wall Street Journal
Castle Rock, Colo.— June 28, 2019 —Today, REAL Trends + Tom Ferry, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal, published the 14th annual The Thousand list of America’s top 1,000 real estate sales professionals and teams. An abridged list of the designees is published in today’s edition of The Wall Street Journal and a complete listing is available online at www.realtrends.com/rankings/rt1000.
REAL Trends + Tom Ferry The Thousand, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal, is an annual, national awards ranking sponsored by REAL Trends—the Trusted Source—and Tom Ferry International coaching. Designees are recognized as the top one-tenth of one 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, Colorado-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.”
Collins Group Realty was ranked 240th team, by volume on the Thousand list, released June 28th, 2019, and the #3 team in the state of South Carolina.
