There’s no better way to kick off the new year than joining forces with REAL Trends’ good friend Tom Ferry. You may have recently heard we announced a new joint venture between REAL Trends and Tom Ferry where we will jointly operate the rankings of top individual agents and teams. Tom and I, and our excellent teams agree that our primary focus is to help these outstanding sales professionals be recognized for their efforts with better marketing tools. We want to give agents and teams a sense of belonging to something special.
But rest assured, nothing with the submission process or data collection will change due to this partnership.
As always, we pledge that we will not sell or rent the personal data of these top agents to anyone, nor will we use it to sell our respective services, products or tools. Our focus is to recognize these outstanding sales professionals to the best of our ability and give them a full range of tools with which to market their rankings on The Thousand and America’s Best Real Estate Professionals.
Tom Ferry and his organization are known to be among the best educators and coaches in the business. They have great relationships with agents and teams. REAL Trends is a proven leader in research and consulting. Tom and I both believe that together we can deliver more to The Thousand and America’s Best Real Estate Professionals than we could do alone.
The surveys for The Thousand and America’s Best rankings were launched on January 9. . Remember, if you’re with a nationally branded real estate organization, it’s likely they will be filing for all of your qualified agents.
Also, please don’t confuse The Thousand and America’s Best Agent/Team rankings with the REAL Trends 500 Brokerage Rankings which rank top brokerage firms.
My best wishes to you for great success in 2019, which already is lining up to be one of the more exciting years in our history.
