(Bethlehem, PA, June 27, 2016)—For the fourth consecutive year, DLP Realty has been named one of America’s top real estate professional teams by REAL Trends, as published in The Wall Street Journal. As a member of the “The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” a prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by REAL Trends and advertised in The Wall Street Journal, DLP Realty is ranked in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 1.1 million Realtors® nationwide.
The Thousand real estate professionals was announced on June 24, 2016, with four separate categories honoring the top 250 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in:
- Individual Sales Professionals—Sales volume
- Individual Sales Professionals—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.)
- Team Professionals—Sales volume
- Team Professionals—Transaction sides
According to The Thousand, DLP Realty had 1017 transaction sides, ranking them 8th in the nation. In 2015 DLP ranked #14 with 739 transactions.
“The best individual agents and teams—including DLP Realty’s award-winning efforts—were nothing short of phenomenal considering the challenges in today’s complex housing market,” said Steve Murray, founder of REAL Trends, a Denver-based consulting, publishing and communications company and The Trusted Source that compiles the yearly, third-party verified list.
“Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what DLP Realty did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president of classified advertising for The Wall Street Journal. “Their efforts topped 99.99 percent of the more than 1.1 million Realtors nationwide.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to continue to grow as a team & as a company & this annual ranking of the top real estate agents & teams in the US is an incredible honor that helps us to recognize & appreciate the hard work & effort our team puts each and every day. We are even more motivated now than ever to continue to grow & be apart of The Thousand,” said Don Wenner, President and CEO of DLP Realty. “What is best of all about being on this list though, is the incredibly gratifying feeling we get knowing we are helping so many clients both find their dream homes as well as help them sell their properties quickly and for the highest price possible.”
