“In this highly competitive industry it is a thrill and an honor to congratulate the extraordinary sales professionals who have been nationally recognized for their achievements this past year,” says RPL President & CEO Sally Lapides. “They absolutely deserve to be ranked amongst the very best agents in the nation.”

Sponsored by AdWerx, this prestigious list ranks nearly 14,000 U.S. real estate sales associates from every state based on their excellence in real estate sales during 2017. To be included in the ranking, agents must have closed at least 50 transactions or $20 million in closed sales volume in 2017, while teams must have closed 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume.

For Gerri Schiffman and Kevin Fox, this marks their fourth consecutive year on the list, while the sales team of Antrop & Williamson has now earned a spot for three straight years. After appearing on the list for three consecutive years as a member of Markham & DeRentis Associates, Jim DeRentis earned the honor for a fourth year in a row with his first individual recognition.

Among individual agents, Jim DeRentis ranked third in Rhode Island with $63,943,641 in sales volume, while placing fourth in the state with 110 transaction sides. Gerri Schiffman came it at number four in RI with $63,411,177 in volume, as well as fifth in the state with 106 transaction sides.

This year, the spring season got off to an unusually late start. However, the shortened season didn’t prevent our agents from capturing a wide array of beautiful submissions for our photo contest. I’d like to thank all of those agents who took the time out of their schedules, especially during such a busy spring market, to visit some of their favorite Rhode Island locations and capture a shot for our photo contest. I would also like to thank all of our wonderful friends on Facebook who submitted their votes and helped us with the tough task of selecting a winner.

Overall, your participation and engagement helped us reach nearly 5,500 people on Facebook and resulted in over 500 votes. The voting got off to a slow start, but finished with a flurry of activity until one finalist finally pulled away from the pack.

It is my pleasure to announce that the winner of the 2018 RPL Spring Photo Contest is RPL Providence Sales Associate, Barbara Dacey with her photo of the “Boots on the Ground” memorial at Roger Williams Park during Memorial Day Weekend. Barbara’s photo respectfully captured the approximately 7,000 boots adorned with American flags and name placards to honor the brave men and women who were killed in action post 9/11 in the War on Terror. The photo received a total of 188 votes, as well as 25 comments, many remarking on the bittersweet, yet beautiful nature of the image.  Congratulations to Barbara on her winning photo. We’re pleased to award you with the grand prize of a free property video and website package.
