Santa Fe Real Estate agent Darlene Streit made the elite list of “The Thousand” which recognizes the top 1,000 real estate agents, out of more than a million, in the United States. The list, published annually for the past 12 years, is sponsored by REAL Trends Inc and published in the Wall Street Journal. Streit, a company-owned Sotheby’s broker, is the first and only agent from Santa Fe to make the list in two categories. In the top 1,000, Streit came in at 191 for Sales Volume and placed 178 in Transaction Sides. Those making the list are recognized as the top one-half of one percent of more than 1.25 million licensed real estate professionals nationwide.
“The real estate sales professionals ranked in The Thousand have proven that they have the skills to grow their businesses year after year,” said Steve Murray, president of REAL Trends and publisher of The Thousand. “The average U.S. real estate professional sold 8.6 homes in 2016. The average agent ranked in The Thousand sold 192 homes and the average team sold over 470 homes. These kinds of results show that those who commit to being full-time professionals can build meaningful businesses and succeed beyond expectations. Achieving this level of results is simply incredible.”
The Thousand is divided into four categories, each listing the top 250 designees: Individual Agent — Sales Volume; Individual Agent — Transaction Sides; Agent Team — Sales Volume and Agent Team — Transaction Sides.
Darlene Streit is the only company-owned Sotheby’s broker to ever make the list in the same year for both Transaction Sides and Sales Volume.
