Sept. 19, 2011 - PRLog -- The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals was announced by The Wall Street Journal on September 6, 2011 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   

“Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand  Top Real Estate Professionals is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what Spain did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president, Global Sales, Vertical Markets Advertising for The Wall Street Journal.  “His efforts topped 99.99 percent of the more than 1 million REALTORS nationwide.”

This ranking of the nation’s top real estate professionals has been around for several years and, each year, the Mark Spain Team is prominently on the top third of the list. The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals list is the only independent study of its kind where all results from individual submissions are independently verified through third party sources.
