HONOLULU, HI - Patricia Choi of Choi International was named one of America’s top real estate professionals by REAL Trends and as advertised in The Wall Street Journal. This is her 5th year being recognized in this prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by the two respected publications. Choi is now ranked in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 963,000 REALTORS® nationwide.
The Thousand real estate professionals was announced on June 27, 2014, with four separate categories honoring the top 250 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in:
- Individual Sales Professionals — Sales volume
- Individual Sales Professionals — Transaction sides (in each real estate transaction, there are two sides that can be represented by a real estate agent: a buyer’s and a seller’s).
- Team Professionals — Sales volume
- Team Professionals — Transaction sides
According to The Thousand, Choi had a sales volume totaling $63,849,500, ranking her as the Top Hawaii Agent and #213 overall nationwide in the Individual Real Estate Professionals by Sales Volume category.
“The best individual agents and teams—including Choi’s award-winning efforts—were nothing short of phenomenal considering the recovering real estate market,” said Steve Murray, founder of Denver-based publishing and communications company REAL Trends, which compiled the list.
“Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what Choi did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president of classified advertising for The Wall Street Journal. “Her efforts topped 99.99 percent of the more than 963,000 REALTORS nationwide.”
“I am absolutely thrilled to be named to The Thousand,” said Choi, who serves clients primarily in Oahu’s luxury neighborhoods of Diamond Head, Kahala, Hawaii Loa Ridge, Portlock and Kailua/Lanikai. “Even with the market’s challenges, it’s incredibly gratifying to help clients find their dream homes as well as help them sell their properties quickly and for the highest price possible.”
