For the fifth consecutive year, Residential Properties Ltd. has earned a spot on the Real Trends 500, a prestigious list of the Top 500 most successful real estate companies in the entire nation. Now in its 30th year, the Real Trends 500 remains the undisputed leading report ranking the performance of the top residential real estate brokerage firms.
Residential Properties Ltd. is proud to be the only company based entirely in Rhode Island to appear on the list, and was recently ranked #1 in the state in both gross volume and residences sold on the Providence Business News Book of Lists. The independently owned brokerage ranked #314 in the nation for gross volume with $789,129,644 in overall sales, as well as #490 in transaction sides with a total of 1,886.
Due to the requirement that all information be independently verified, the REAL Trends 500 remains the trusted source for information regarding the performance of these firms. The results of the list show that the nation’s leading realty firms outperformed the market when compared against the results reported by the National Association of Realtors® and the National Association of Home Builders. The firms included on the Real Trends 500 saw a 6.6 percent increase in unit sales, as well as an 8.8 percent rise in sales volume this past year.

Now in its 10th year of existence, the RPL Photo Contest has always served as the perfect vehicle for capturing the essence of our beautiful state as we enjoy the annual procession of the seasons. The 2017 RPL Winter Photo Contest continued this legacy, as our agents entered a terrific collection of submissions showcasing familiar local destinations covered by a blanket of freshly fallen snow.
As always, I’d like to thank everyone who made this season’s contest such a success, including everyone who entered a submission, each of our six finalists, and most of all, our friends on Facebook who took the time to submit their vote and share the contest with family and friends. With your help, this year’s winter contest was viewed by over 5,000 people, receiving 42 shares and a total of 364 votes.
While all of our finalists deserve praise, two particular photos separated themselves from the pack, each receiving over 115 votes. These two entries kept pace with each other throughout a busy weekend of public voting, but when the dust finally settled and all the votes were tallied, only one would emerge as the winner.
We’re proud to announce that the winner of the 2017 RPL Winter Photo Contest is India Point Sunset by Cumberland Sales Associate Kimberly Horvath. Kimberly’s photo captured snow covered trees and wintery docks set before a radiating pink and orange sunset reflecting off the waters of the Providence Harbor. Congratulations to Kimberly who will receive a free property video and website as her contest prize.
