The Mike Brown Group at Silvercreek Realty Group Named One of America’s Top 1,000 Real Estate professional teams By Real Trends,
As advertised IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
(Meridian, Idaho, June 24th, 2016)—The Mike Brown Group at Silvercreek Realty Group has been named one of America’s top real estate professional teams by REAL Trends, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal. The Mike Brown Group is now a member of The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals, a prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by REAL Trends and advertised in The Wall Street Journal. The Mike Brown Group is now 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
For the second year, REAL Trends has added two new categories to The Thousand ranking based off of average sales price. This new category is broken down into the top 50 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in:
- Individual Sales Professionals – Average Sales Price
- Team Professionals – Average Sales Price
According to The Thousand, The Mike Brown Group ranks #2 in the state of Idaho for sales volume and #3 for transaction sides.
“The best individual agents and teams—including The Mike Brown Group’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 The Mike Brown Group 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 be named to The Thousand,” says team owner Mike Brown, who serves clients primarily in the Treasure Valley. “It’s incredibly gratifying to help clients find their dream homes as well as help them sell their properties quickly and for the highest price possible.”
