Posted by Carol Staab — July 13, 2015
NEW YORK, NY - Carol Staab of Douglas Elliman Real Estate was named one of America’s most productive agents as a part of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents, the newly issued ranking report produced by REAL Trends and sponsored by Zillow Group.
REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents ranks over 9,900 residential real estate agents solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2014. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.
The real estate agents are ranked in four categories:
- Individual agent — Sales volume
- Individual agent — Transaction sides (in each real estate transaction there are two sides that can be represented by a real estate agent: the buy side and the selling side)
- Agent team — Sales volume
- Agent team — Transaction sides
To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2014. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume.
“The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed fewer than eight transactions in 2014 and had less than $1.5 million in sales,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends’ America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends. “To say that Carol Staab is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”
“We are also pleased that two of the nation’s most prominent online real estate websites, Trulia and Zillow, have partnered with REAL Trends to bring a superior level of customer exposure of these sales agent’s performance. They are also offering special offers for personal services to these fine agents,” Murray added.

The level of sales it takes to qualify makes it a truly special recognition.”
