Nathan Torgerson of The Torgerson Team at Keller Williams Realty was recently presented the honor of Most Closed Units By Agent for 2017 as well as the Diamond Award for the third year running for Most closed Production with Movement Mortgage.

“Each year we recognize our top producing agents and teams for their outstanding accomplishments,” said Nathan Brown, chief leadership officer for Keller Williams Realty of Greater Downtown Chattanooga. “As an individual agent, Nathan Torgerson represented more closed units than any other individual agent.

I believe that is a testament to the loyalty of his clients, which I think it is a result of the phenomenal customer service that The Torgerson Team gives to their clients and customers.”

With 92 units sold in 2017, Mr. Torgerson had a record-breaking year in terms of numbers, but he says the biggest honor for him is helping local families.

“Being number #28 in Chattanooga for units sold means more to me than just numbers on a spreadsheet,” he said. “When I see that award on my desk, it’s a physical reminder of all of the clients I’ve had the opportunity to help on their journey to homeownership.

This isn’t the first time Mr. Torgerson has been recognized for excellent work in the real estate industry. This year he earned a spot for the second year in a row on Three Best Rated as one of the Top 3 Real Estate Agents in Chattanooga. The candidates for this honor are chosen through a 50-Point inspection that includes everything from checking reputation, history, complaints, local reviews, nearness, satisfaction, trust and cost to general excellence. 

Mr. Torgerson was also 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. He is now a member of the America’s Best Real Estate Agents,” and ranked in the top 100 for the state of Tennessee. Torgerson is one of only a handful Chattanooga realtors to receive this recognition.

“I’m honored to have earned the trust of so many families to help them make one of the most important decisions of their lives,” Mr. Torgerson. “I look forward to coming to work every day knowing that I’m making a difference.”
