The 2015 REAL Trends/The Wall Street Journal Report, The Thousand, was released today and Coldwell Banker shows up in a big way!

Nationwide, Coldwell Banker affiliated sales associates generated 40 percent more sales volume than any other national real estate brand with $8.8 billion last year. Nearly one-third of the top 1,500 agents and teams by sales volume, transaction sides, and average sales price were affiliated with a Realogy brand, including Coldwell Banker.

Here in California, we’re proud to have 73 teams and individuals recognized in this year’s The Thousand (many in multiple categories).

“This report underscores how many of the top real estate agents and teams across our nation are affiliated with one of our brands – and clearly that number is significant,” said Richard A. Smith, chairman, CEO and president of Realogy. “We are proud of their success and are committed to making resources available to our affiliates that will help them continue to succeed at serving the needs of tomorrow’s homebuyers and sellers.”
