RIS Media recently released its 30th Annual Power Broker Report, ranking Residential Properties Ltd. among the top real estate firms in the U.S. for sales volume. RPL checked-in at number 340 on the list with a total sales volume of $794,854,526 in 2017, representing 1,852 closed transactions.

RISMedia President and CEO John Featherston congratulated Residential Properties Ltd. for their prestigious ranking in this year’s Power Broker Report. “The firms represented are the nation’s most elite brokerage firms serving literally millions of consumers with their real estate needs,” Featherston said. “Even up against extremely scarce supply, Power Brokers posted remarkable sales. With the economy expanding and home prices on a tear, they’re charging forward and leveraging the opportunities. We applaud their commitment to homeownership and congratulate them on their Power Broker standing.”

Celebrating its 30th anniversary year, the Power Broker Report has long honored the incredible business feats of remarkable real estate leaders—and brokerage firms—who continue to shape our industry. Each April, RISMedia’s Real Estate magazine highlights the Top 500 Power Broker firms according to sales volume, and the digital version of the Power Broker Top 500 ranks firms according to sales volume and transactions.

2017 marked the third consecutive year that Residential Properties Ltd. has ranked #1 in Rhode Island for both homes sold (1,852) and overall sales volume ($794,854,526) in the Providence Business News Book of Lists – compiling over $300,000,000 more in sales than the next closest competitor for a second straight year.

This marks the sixth year in a row that RPL has earned a spot on this prestigious rankings list.

During 2017, RPL ranked #1 in Rhode Island for a third consecutive year in both homes sold (1,852) and overall sales volume ($794,854,526) in the Providence Business News Book of Lists – compiling over $300,000,000 more in sales than the next closest competitor for a second straight year.

With this level of production, Residential Properties Ltd. appeared on the 2018 REAL Trends 500 ranked #347 in the entire country for overall sales volume.
