DENVER – Ranked by most properties sold, RE/MAX residential specialists led all competitors among the top 1,000 real estate agents in the nation.

Published by The Wall Street Journal and REAL Trends, “The Thousand” ranked the top 250 agents and top 250 teams for transaction sides and sales volume. When the 500 transaction standings are combined, RE/MAX agents hold 98 places. That’s nearly one out of five – and more than any other real estate brand in the report, which ranks participating agents based on 2012 production.

“We’re proud of these RE/MAX agents for their outstanding professionalism and commitment,” said RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly. “Their dedication to their clients is why – year in and year out – RE/MAX sells more real estate than any other real estate franchise.”

Fifty-five RE/MAX teams placed on the Top 250 list of teams with the most transaction sides. They claimed five of the top 10 rankings. Second in the nation was Ryan O’Neill’s Minnesota Real Estate Team of RE/MAX Advantage Plus in Lakeville, Minn. with 1,105 sides. RE/MAX teams averaged 359 sides.

Forty-three RE/MAX agents were ranked among the Top 250 individuals for most transaction sides, led by Joe Kadaf of RE/MAX Leading Edge in Dearborn Heights, Mich. He placed fourth nationally, closing 646 sides. RE/MAX agents averaged 210 sides.

RE/MAX agents and teams also cracked the two Top 250 lists for highest sales volume. The top RE/MAX team was O’Neill’s Minnesota Real Estate Team which ranked 15th by listing and selling properties totaling $193 million.

Sal Calabrese of RE/MAX Metro in Brooklyn led all RE/MAX individuals in placing 112th with $76 million in sales.

“The Thousand” results are not the first time that RE/MAX agents have been shown to be more productive. Earlier this year, RE/MAX agents were found to be the most productive in the 2013 REAL Trends 500 survey of the nation’s largest participating real estate brokerages, based on total transaction sides. RE/MAX agents averaged twice as many transaction sides per agent as all other agents.

In addition to The Thousand’s four Top 250 lists of agents that debuted June 28, REAL Trends is releasing a more extensive list of the nation’s top-producing agents in July, organized by state and market area.
