One Local Firm, Four of America’s Top Agents | REAL Trends The Thousand

06/27/2017

In the June 23 issue of The Wall Street Journal, REAL Trends named four Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty agents to The Thousand, its annual ranking of the top 1,000 real-estate professionals and teams in the United States. Across Dallas and Fort Worth, these expert agents are the best in the business.

Not only are Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty’s Becky Frey, Tom Hughes and Michelle Wood on the new ranking of the top 250 individuals by volume, they rank as the top three agents, respectively, in all of Dallas. The firm’s Fort Worth–based John Zimmerman made two lists: the top 250 individuals by volume and the top 250 individuals by transaction sides. In the rankings, Zimmerman is the No. 1 Fort Worth–based agent in the country and the No. 2 agent in all of Texas — and in the top .001 percent of agents in the entire U.S.

REAL Trends, founded in 1987, is the leader in ranking the performance of residential real-estate services firms, agents and teams in the U.S. The REAL Trends ranking considers data, verified by independent sources, for more than 1,000 brokerages.

“I know how talented and dedicated our agents are,” says Robbie Briggs, president and CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, “but it’s nice to see an outside party recognize how solid our relationships are between our agents and our buyers and sellers.”

To John, Becky, Tom and Michelle: Congratulations! You are achieving the extraordinary.

In a recent post for Lowe’s Open House Newsroom, Mick Koster reports that research predicts a 100 percent increase in the number of Americans residing in smart homes within the next five years.
