REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Professionals ranks over 14,500 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2018. All production numbers are independently verified by a third party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents the top 1.5 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.
“Congratulations to Mike Hughes and Jeff Shelton who made the America’s Best list,” says Tom Ferry, owner and founder of Tom Ferry International. “I have the pleasure of working with successful real estate professionals day in and day out, and I know all the hard work, late nights and huge amount of effort that goes into achieving such incredible results,” says Ferry. “There are multiple ways to become successful in real estate. Yet, despite the differences, the real estate professionals on this list have one thing in common—they are simply the best. Congratulations to each and every recipient of this prestigious recognition.”
The real estate professionals are ranked in four categories:
Individual agent—Sales volume
Individual agent—Transaction sides (in each real estate transaction there are two sides that can be represented by a real estate agent: the buy side and the selling side)
Agent team—Sales volume
Agent team—Transaction sides
To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2018. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume.
“Those individual agents and teams who make up the 2019 America’s Best Real Estate Professionals represent less than 1.5 percent of all Realtors® in the country yet account for over 12 percent of the closed transactions and more than 22 percent of all the sales volume closed last year,” says Steve Murray, president of REAL Trends. “To say that Mike Hughes and Jeff Shelton are an exceptional sales professional team is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”
“I’m obviously pleased and honored to be ranked on this ranking of the country’s top residential real estate agents,” says Jeff Shelton. “It represents the time and effort that we put into each client that we serve and how much work it takes to build a successful real estate career.
