Posted by Elna Oshiro — July 8, 2015
HONOLULU, HI - Patricia Choi of Choi International was named one of America’s top real estate professionals by REAL Trends, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal. She is now a member of the “The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” a 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 1,100,000 REALTORS® nationwide.
The Thousand real estate professionals was announced on June 26, 2015, 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
For the first time, REAL Trends has added two new categories to The Thousand ranking based off of average sales price. Like the other categories in The Thousand, both of these are broken down into the top 250 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in:
- Individual Sales Professionals – Average Sales Price
- Team Professionals – Average Sales Price
According to The Thousand, Choi had a sales volume totaling $107,982,850, ranking her as #103 in the nation.
“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 1,100,000 REALTORS nationwide.”
“I am absolutely thrilled to be named to The Thousand,” said Choi, who serves clients primarily in Honolulu. “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.”
