It seems like every real estate agent attaches the "top producer" tag to their business. Like most brokerages, ours has a variety of annual awards and we have been recognized with one of the more meaningful with the grand name of "Leading Edge Society". The criteria for this award puts us in the top 2% nationally of Prudential real estate agents for 2012. It's determined by number of transactions and gross commission -- the ultimate numerical measure of an agent's success.
However, we've always believed that the real measure of an agent's success is the satisfaction of their clients and how many of those clients return to work with that agent more than once. However, these are a rarely, if ever, reported. I'm very humbled to say that more than half of our transactions last year were with clients who have worked with us in the past.
