REAL Trends recently released its prestigious 2017 list of America’s Best Real Estate Agents, ranking Residential Properties Ltd. Sales Associates Gerri Schiffman, Kevin Fox, David Hasslinger, and Barbara Stamp, as well as the RPL Sales Teams of Markham & DeRentis Associates and Antrop & Williamson among the most productive and successful names in real estate.
“I am so proud of the professionalism, accomplishments, and acknowledgment of our top producers at Residential Properties Ltd.,” says RPL President & CEO Sally Lapides. “They truly deserve to be included amongst the very best agents in the country.”
The newly issued ranking report produced by REAL Trends and sponsored by Zillow Group ranks over 12,600 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2016. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity.
This marks the third consecutive year on the list for Gerri Schiffman, Kevin Fox, and Markham & DeRentis Associates, as well as the second consecutive year for Antrop & Williamson. Among individual agents, Schiffman ranked third in the state for both transaction sides (90) and sales volume ($47,151,750), while Fox was listed fourth in Rhode Island with $45,086,850 in sales volume and fifth in the state with 77 sides. David Hasslinger and Barbara Stamp both cracked the top 10 in Rhode Island for overall sales volume, compiling $28,458,300 and $20,392,800 in sales, respectively. Among teams, Markham & DeRentis Associates (comprised of Jim DeRentis and Nancy Markham) ranked second in the state for sales volume ($67,031,807) and sixth in transaction sides (113), while Antrop & Williamson (comprised of Ryan Antrop, Robert Williamson, Ali L’Heureux, and Ted Bourque) was listed among the top 12 teams in RI with a total of 87 sides.
“This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends. To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2016. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume. The individuals ranked in America’s Best Real Estate Agents had an average of 73 transaction sides and an average sales volume of almost $37 million. Teams ranked in America’s Best Real Estate Agents had an average of 144 sides and an average sales volume of almost $61 million. This ensures that only the best of the best are included on the prestigious list.
“The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed 8.6 transactions in 2016 and had less than $1.3 million in sales,” said Murray. “To say that the agents on our list are exceptional sales professionals is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”
