The National Association of Realtors has 1.2 million members. But only 100 are recognized in The Wall Street Journal as the industry’s top-producers. For the first time, Redfin agents were not only on the board, but all over the charts, with leaders drawn from markets in California, Washington and Virginia.
Since we always say that quality of service matters more than simple sales volume, we’re also posting each winning agent’s average customer rating, and a link to his or her reviews:
- Febe Cude, Seattle Agent, 4.5 stars, 237 reviews, at Redfin since 2008
- Joyti Goundar, Los Angeles Agent, 4.5 stars, 308 reviews, at Redfin since 2007
- Gina Pio Roda, San Francisco Agent, 4.5 stars, 178 reviews, at Redfin since 2007
- Marshall Kwonil Park, Northern Virginia, 4.5 stars, 215 reviews, at Redfin since 2008
- Trevor Smith, Seattle Agent, 4.5 stars, 285 reviews, at Redfin since 2006
We couldn’t be more proud of these folks, and of everyone on the team who supported them. After years of hard work developing a reputation as one of the best agents in town, Febe, Joyti, Gina, Marshall and Trevor have achieved the highest level of distinction in the industry, with customers and teammates clamoring to work with them.
The same week that this result came out, we also posted the list of top producers in Seattle for the second quarter of 2010, using data from the MLS. Among buy-side agents, Redfin folks held the top eight spots, and 13 of the top 16. No other brokerage has ever employed so many market leaders. Since over the past four years we have grown one market at a time, we hope that one day we’ll sweep the top spots in plenty of other places too.
For now, we just wanted to say congratulations and thank you to Febe, Joyti, Gina, Marshall and Trevor for your magnificent work, and to the whole Seattle team for pulling out all the stops. Many thanks also to our old friend Jim Holt, who first suggested we enter the top-100 competition, and who won a place on the list himself.
