    The Gray Group Ranked #231 on The Thousand List of America’s Top Real Estate Professionals!

    Last week, REAL Trends + Tom Ferry, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal, published the 14th annual The Thousand list of America’s top 1,000 real estate sales professionals and teams. We were honored to be included on this year’s list ranking #231. An abridged list of the designees was published in The Wall Street Journal and a complete listing is available online at www.realtrends.com/rankings/rt1000.

    REAL Trends + Tom Ferry The Thousand, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal, is an annual,national awards ranking sponsored by REAL Trends—the Trusted Source—and Tom Ferry International coaching. Designees are recognized as the top one-tenth of one percent of more than 1.4 million licensed Realtors® nationwide.

    “The best individual agents and teams’ award-winning efforts were phenomenal considering the competition in the real estate market,” said Steve Murray, president of Castle Rock, Colo.- based consulting company REAL Trends, which compiled the list.

    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
    • Agent Team—Transaction Sides

    “The real estate sales professionals ranked in The Thousand have proven that they have the skills to grow their businesses year after year,” said Murray. “The average U.S. Realtor® sold nine homes in 2018. The average agent ranked in The Thousand sold 217 homes and the average team sold over 562 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 REAL Trends team set a precedent of what success looks like in our industry with The Thousand list,” says Tom Ferry, founder of coaching and training company Tom Ferry International. “We’re honored to partner in recognizing these talents and will continue to help agents fulfill their greatness.”
