Robert Backer of Coldwell Banker Pryor Realty, Inc. was named one of America’s most productive sales associates as a part of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents, the annual ranking report produced by REAL Trends and sponsored by Zillow Group.  

This is Mr. Backer’s third consecutive year to make the list, and he’s one of only eight Chattanooga realtors included in the most recent rankings. 

“It’s always an honor to be included in lists like this,” said Mr. Backer. “The recognition is special because it represents the relationships, time and effort that go into every transaction. I’ve spent over twenty years working in real estate, and I love it. I can’t imagine doing anything else.” 

REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents ranks over 12,600 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2016. To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2016. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party to ensure accuracy and report integrity. 

“This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than one percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends. 

"The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed 8.6 transaction in 2016 and had less than $1.3 million in sales,” said Murray. “To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”
