Charlotte Mabry Team Named To Nation's Top Thousand Sellers

Thursday, August 22, 2013

The Charlotte Mabry Team of Keller Williams—Greater Downtown Realty was named one of America’s top real estate professionals and is now a member of the “REAL Trends/The Wall Street Journal Top Thousand,” a national award ranking measured by REAL Trends and featured in a special advertising section of The Wall Street Journal. The “Top Thousand” honors the top 1,000 residential agents and agent teams in the following four categories:

-Individual Agent—Sales Volume

-Individual Agent—Transaction sides (in each real estate transaction, there are two sides that can be represented by a real estate agent: a buyer’s and a seller’s.)

-Agent Team—Sales Volume

-Agent Team—Transaction Sides

According to the REAL Trends/The Wall Street Journal Top Thousand, The Charlotte Mabry Team had 209 homes sales ranking her team in the top 250 Teams in the nation.

Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends/The Wall Street Journal Top Thousand, said, “These leading real estate sales professionals averaged over 140 closed transactions and over $50 million in closed sales volume. Given the national averages are less than 10 closed transactions and less than $1.2 million in closed volume these results speak to the extraordinary success of the Top Thousand. Being ranked in the REAL Trends/The Wall Street Journal Top Thousand, in short, is an incredible accomplishment. These results are a testament to their skills and determination.”

Marti Gallardo, vice president of Vertical Markets, advertising sales, for The Wall Street Journal, said, “Charlotte Mabry ranks in an elite group of individual agents and teams from markets across the country. This is quite an achievement; Charlotte Mabry should be quite proud of her sales successes.” 


REAL Trends/The Wall Street Journal Top Thousand awards program was developed jointly by The Wall Street Journal advertising sales department and REAL Trends, a leading source of analysis and information for the residential real estate brokerage industry. REAL Trends/The Wall Street Journal Top Thousand honors America’s finest real estate agents and their companies and is compiled and analyzed by REAL Trends.
