MARIETTA, Ga. - Sept. 18, 2017 - PRLog -- The Matt Hester & Associates team is once again a member of the "America's Best Real Estate Agents," ranking number 47 for the state of Georgia.  Hester and his team's growth in year-over-year sales volume sparked a five-spot jump in their rankings from 2016's appearance on the REAL Trends list.

The 2017 REAL Trends America's Best Real Estate Agents list, which is sponsored by Zillow Group, ranks over 12,600 residential real estate professionals solely based on real estate sales during the 2016 calendar year. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party to ensure accuracy and report integrity.

The RE/MAX Greater Atlanta team of Matt Hester & Associates had 106 transactions for a gross sales volume of nearly $36.6 million in 2016. The size of the team varied from four to six members until, in 2017, the team has grown into nine full-time professionals, each with his or her own area of expertise and strengths to in Hester's words, make it a more well-rounded, full-service team for its clients.

"This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States," says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL TrendsAmerica's Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends.

"I am pleased we are on this ranking again, this time making the top 50 teams in Georgia," comments team leader Matt Hester.  "The recognition helps make the time, effort and lengthy, nontraditional hours of a Realtor worth it.  It also lets our clients know they are getting a team who can compete with some of the best agents in the market and still maintain a long-held niche in the East Cobb real estate market."

"The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed 8.6 transactions in 2016 and had less than $1.3 million in sales," explains Murray. "To say that Matt Hester is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding."

Two of the nation's most prominent online real estate websites, Trulia® and Zillow®, have partnered with REAL Trends to bring a superior level of customer exposure of these sales agents' performance. Information on those receiving this recognition in the state of Georgia can be found at
