Residential Properties Ltd. is proud to announce that Sales Associates Kevin Fox and Gerri Schiffman, as well as the Sales Teams of Antrop & Williamson and Markham + DeRentis Associates have each been included on the 2016 Real Trends list of “America’s Best Real Estate Agents.” Sponsored by the Zillow Group, this prestigious list ranks the most productive agents by state and metropolitan area based on closed transaction sides and overall sales volume.
“With today’s release of the 2016 America’s Best Real Estate Agents list, an elite group of real estate agents across the country are receiving well-deserved recognition. These sales associates are far above average and have built enormously successful small businesses in an extremely competitive field,” said Steve Murray, president of REAL Trends.
For individual sales associates, Gerri Schiffman of RPL’s Providence Office led the way for Residential Properties Ltd., ranking second in the state for sales volume ($50,649,211) as well as third in the state in transaction sides (87). This marks Schiffman’s third consecutive year on the prestigious list. As one of the top individual agents in the state, Gerri earned the 2015 Circle of Excellence Platinum Plus Award and has been a Providence County Top Producer since 1999.
Kevin Fox, also a member of RPL’s Providence Office, appeared on the list for a second straight year after compiling 50 transaction sides and $23,023,900 in sales volume during 2015. Kevin consistently ranks as a Providence County Top 10 Producer and has gained the appreciation of his clients based on his expert knowledge of the local real estate markets, his strategic marketing plans, and his proven ability to negotiate favorable outcomes.
The Sales Team of Markham + DeRentis Associates have appeared on the list during each of its three years of existence. This year, they ranked among the top three sales teams in the state for sales volume ($57,454,122) and among the top five in transaction sides (103). Formed by Jim DeRentis and Nancy Markham, M+D Associates make it their mission to match clients with properties that enhance their lives by offering comprehensive services built on advanced real estate certifications, a trusted network of partners, and specialized knowledge of neighborhoods and cities throughout the area.
The Antrop & Williamson Team from RPL’s Cumberland Office was also included on the list after recording a total of 97 transaction sides during 2015. Composed of Sales Associates Ryan Antrop, Ted Bourque, Ali L’Heureux, and Robert Williamson, the A&W Team have enjoyed immediate success with Residential Properties and continue to be one of the most successful sales teams in the state.
“Less than 1 percent of the agents and teams in America account for 5 percent of all sales,” said Murray. “It is amazing to think about how hard they have worked and how focused they are on their clients. They have to be in order to be listed on this report. We are pleased to congratulate this year’s members of America’s Best Real Estate Agents.”
