IF THERE’S one thing that’s obvious about this year’s Top 100 Agents ranking, it’s that the level of competition has intensified dramatically since the inaugural list was compiled last year.
Sales numbers are definitely up, with some of the industry’s biggest hitters entering their name into the ring.
The quality of this year’s list may be partly attributed to an improvement in the property market in 2012. Yet with more than 50 first time entrants in this year’s ranking, what’s been more obvious is the quality of agent who has been keen to participate. Awareness of the Top 100 Agents ranking amongst industry professionals has increased, and with it comes an even stronger group of the country’s best performing agents.
While the numbers do matter, what the Top 100 Agents list helps uncover are the key characteristics, business practices and attitudes of this elite group of professionals. This is particularly important for agents who work in smaller agencies or networks, many of which don’t have access to the sales performance benchmarks of the nation’s top real estate professionals.
In effect, this list quantifies what it really means to be a top performing agent, in markets across the country.
Encouragingly, a number of agents plying the trade in some of the lesser known suburbs or towns made this year’s list – showing that even markets with comparatively lower-valued properties can’t stop some agents from succeeding.
This report, however, is more than just numbers. With detailed profiles of a number of the agents, readers gain an insight into how they operate, and what makes them successful.To read more, a subscription is needed: Click here to subscribe
