Dana Flanagan of Prudential CT Realty was named one of REAL Trends’ Best Real Estate Agents in America in the newly issued national ranking report produced by REAL Trends.
REAL Trends "Best Real Estate Agents in America" ranks nearly 6,500 residential real estate agents solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2012. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.
The real estate agents are ranked in four categories:
• Individual agent — Sales volume
• Individual agent — Transaction sides (in each real estate transaction there are two sides that can be represented by a real estate agent: a buyer's and a seller's.)
• Agent team — Sales volume
• Agent team — Transaction sides
To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transactions or $20 million in sales volume in 2012. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transactions or $30 million in closed sales volume.
The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed fewer than eight transactions in 2012 and had less than $1.5 million in sales,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends’ Best Real Estate Agents in America and editor of REAL Trends. “To say that Dana Flanagan is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.
“I am obviously pleased and honored to be ranked on this new national ranking of the country’s top residential real estate agents,” said Dana Flanagan. “It represents the time and effort that we put into each client that we serve and how much work it takes to build a successful real estate career. The level of sales it takes to qualify makes it a truly special recognition.”
