The “Top Thousand” honors the top 1,000 residential agents and agent teams in the following four categories:

"These leading real estate sales professionals averaged over 140 closed transactions and over $50 million in closed sales volume. Given the national averages are less than 10 closed transactions and less than $1.2 million in closed volume these results speak to the extraordinary success of The Thousand.
