)-- The Bennett Group is now a member of the “The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” a prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by the two respected publications. The Bennett Group is now ranked in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 1 million REALTORS® nationwide.
The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals was announced on September 6, 2011 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
Team Professionals – Sales Volume
Team Professionals – Transaction sides
According to The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals, The Bennett Group had 179 transaction sides, ranking them 163rd in the nation.
“The best individual agents and teams – including The Bennett Group’s award-winning efforts – were nothing short of phenomenal considering the challenging real estate market,” said Steve Murray, founder of Denver-based publishing and communications company REAL Trends, which compiled the list. “Ironically, if you look at the top 250 in each category you will find that collectively, their sales volume and transaction sides held up quite nicely compared with the market as a whole.”
“Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what The Bennett Group did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, Vice President, Global Sales, Vertical Markets Advertising for The Wall Street Journal. “Their efforts topped 99.99 percent of the more than 1 million REALTORS nationwide.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to be named to The Thousand,” said Grant and Lisa Bennett whose team serves clients primarily in Greensboro and Guilford County, “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.”
