SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (September 8, 2011) Pacific Union International (PUI) announced today four of their team members were included among the Top 250 Real Estate Professionals by Transaction Volume. Pacific Union International has made its mark among the leading realtors in the Bay Area. Tracy McLaughlin of Ross, Dana Green of Orinda, Steven Mavromihalis and John Lee, both of San Francisco, were named among America’s top real estate professionals by The Wall Street Journal and REAL Trends. They are all now members of the “The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” a prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by the two respected publications. They are now ranked in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 1 million REALTORS® nationwide.
The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals recently announced 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
According to The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals, McLaughlin, Green, Mavromihalis and Lee had sales volume of between $35 million and $53million, ranking in the top 250 in the nation.
“The best individual agents and teams – including McLaughlin, Green, Mavromihalis and Lee’s award-winning efforts – were nothing short of phenomenal considering the challenging real estate market,” said Steve Murray, founder of Denver-based publishing and communications company REAL Trends, which compiled the list.
“Ironically, if you look at the top 250 in each category you will find that collectively, their sales volume and transaction sides held up quite nicely compared with the market as a whole.”
“Becoming a member of such an elite group as the The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what McLaughlin, Green, Mavromihalis and Lee’s 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 million REALTORS nationwide.”
“Pacific Union International is absolutely thrilled to see four team members named to The Thousand,” said Mark A. McLaughlin, president and CEO of Pacific Union International. “Even with the market’s challenges, it’s incredibly gratifying for our professionals to help clients find their dream homes, as well as help them sell their properties quickly and for the highest price possible. We salute Tracy McLaughlin, Dana Green, Steve Mavromihalis and John Lee for their achievements.”
