)-- Reaching the pinnacle of her profession nationally, Laura Durham of Mill Pond Realty Inc. was today accepted as a Member of the Top 5 in Real Estate Network®, the most prestigious of all industry achievements.
More than just a sales-driven recognition, the Top 5 in Real Estate Network meets a need that heretofore has never been addressed – helping consumers identify the most professional real estate agents in North America. To qualify, each member must first meet a stringent set of criteria. Such criteria are based upon performance, educational assistance, professional skills, and service to the consumer.
The Top 5 Network is carefully selected and managed by RISMedia, which has provided the real estate industry with objective, unbiased news for nearly 30 years.
John Featherston, Chairman of RISMedia, congratulated Laura Durham for earning this top status within the industry. “Laura has reached the very highest level of North America’s residential real estate industry. Not only are her professional accomplishments extraordinary, she has long been a true champion for homebuyers and sellers in her area. It is a pleasure to welcome Laura into this elite group of industry leaders.”
According to Featherston, the significance of Top 5 in Real Estate is that consumers deserve full transparency regarding all matters related to the real estate transaction. This often begins with the need to select a highly competent, experienced and results-oriented real estate professional. Top 5 in Real Estate has been established to both empower consumers with leading real estate content through Top 5 members as well as to ensure that consumers are made fully aware that there is a material difference between average and exceptional real estate professionals.
