DLP Realty Named One of America’s Top 1000 Real Estate Teams

DLP Realty Named One of America’s Top 1000 Real Estate Teams by REAL Trends and The Wall Street Journal

DLP Realty has been named one of America’s top real estate professional teams by REAL Trends and The Wall Street Journal.  As a member of “The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” a prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by the two respected publications,  DLP Realty is ranked in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 1,100,000 REALTORS® nationwide.

The Thousand real estate professionals was announced on June 26, 2015, with four separate categories honoring the top 250 residential agents and agent teams for excellence.

  • 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 739 transaction sides, ranking them 14th in the nation.

“The best individual agents and teams—including DLP Realty’s award-winning efforts—were nothing short of phenomenal considering the recovering real estate market,” said Steve Murray, founder of Denver-based publishing and communications company REAL Trends, which compiled the 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 1,100,000 REALTORS nationwide.”

“We are absolutely thrilled to once again be named to The Thousand. This is our fifth year in a row on the list and our highest ranking to date—moving up from #15 in 2014 and #25 in 2013,” said Don Wenner, President and CEO of DLP Realty.  “Even with the market’s challenges, it’s incredibly gratifying to know our team is helping more and more amazing clients find their dream homes as well as help them sell their properties quickly and for the highest price possible.”

In addition to being #14 in the United States, Don Wenner and DLP Realty also topped the list of all teams in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey markets once again. This is the third year in a row DLP Realty has been the #1 Real Estate Team in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey markets according to The Thousand.

5 Fun Reasons to Run Your First 5k

Dream Live Prosper 5k

If you’ve been thinking that participating in a 5k race sounds like fun (you’re right, it is), but you’re a bit hesitant because you’ve never run a race before, maybe we can offer a few reasons to encourage you to lace up those running shoes…

  1. Free shirts!
    While it is probably true that a race shirt won’t be the most fashionable article of clothing hanging in your closet, we guarantee you’ll wear it proudly after crossing your first finish line. After that, frame it and hang it on your wall (we might suggest washing it first).
  2. Meet people!
    Generally speaking, runners are a friendly bunch (we think it’s the endorphins), and are often happy to offer advice and encouragement to first-timers. Believe it or not, you can make a lot of new friends waiting in line for the porta-potties before the race.
  3. Free food!
    Sure, it tends to be healthier stuff like water and fruit, but hey, free is free.
  4. You won’t finish last!
    This is true for every person who enters (well, except one). Just don’t be “that guy” and you’ll be fine.
  5. You’ll feel good about yourself!
    Even if you do turn out to be “that guy,” you’re still a winner since almost every 5k race supports a worthwhile charity and your entry fee is helping someone.

Convinced it’s time to run your first race? It just so happens that the Dream Live Prosper 5k and Fun Run will be held on June 27th at Steel Stacks in Bethlehem. We have free shirts, free food, friendly people, and best of all, we’re donating all proceeds to the Valley Youth House!

Visit dlprealty.com/5k today to register. You’ll be glad you did!
