Nathan Torgerson of The Torgerson Team at Keller Williams Realty was named one of America’s most productive sales associates as a part of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents, the newly issued ranking report produced by REAL Trends and sponsored by Zillow Group. 

This is the second year in a row he has been named a member of the “America’s Best Real Estate Agents,” and ranked in the top 100 for the state of Tennessee. Mr. Torgerson is one of only eight Chattanooga realtors to receive this recognition.

“I am honored to be named on this ranking of the country’s top residential real estate agents,” said Nathan Torgerson. “It represents the time and effort that we put into each client that we serve and how much work it takes to build a successful real estate career.”

REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents ranks more than 12,600 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2016. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.

The real estate professionals are ranked in 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: the buy side and the selling side)
• Agent team — Sales volume
• Agent team — Transaction sides

To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2016. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume.

“The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed 8.6 transactions in 2016 and had less than $1.3 million in sales,” said Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends’ America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends. “To say that Nathan Torgerson is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”
