Coldwell Banker Sold

In a competitive industry like real estate, rankings matter more than most people would like to admit. A solid ranking on a national list demonstrates market strength and expertise—qualities that are important to today’s homebuyers and sellers. Granted, they may not choose their real estate agent based on a national ranking alone, but it does reinforce the premium they place on their agent’s experience, service and proven track record. After all, a home is one of  most important investments they will ever make in their lifetime.

The annual The Wall Street Journal/REAL Trends ranking of the top 1,000 REALTORS® in the U.S., released every summer, is probably the most elite and most sought-after national ranking for real estate agents. The results are based on 2012 annual sales volume and transaction sides, with designees recognized as the top half of one percent of more than 963,000 licensed REALTORS® nationwide. This year, Coldwell Banker placed more agents and teams than any other brand on the nationwide rankings, with 155 spots across the four categories (individual sales volume, individual transaction sides, team sales volume and team transaction sides), and held the most overall spots in individual agent sales volume (53) and team sales volume (36). Coldwell Banker also features the No. 1 performing team based on sales volume. In California, 74 Coldwell Banker agents ranked among the top… giving buyers and sellers here a robust list of highly qualified and successful agents from all over the state to consider. We’ve listed them here for you by county/region.
