Hundreds of applications received within first week; 136 credentials awarded to date

While many would shy away from creating a new designation in a down market, we believe it is a critical time to recognize those who are leading the real estate industry to its greatest comeback ever.

Best Image Marketing, a division of Dominion Enterprises, announced today that over 135 agents have been awarded the new Diamond NUMBER1EXPERT designation. Launched last month, the new Diamond NUMBER1EXPERT credential recognizes top real estate agents and brokers who have achieved at least $16 million or 125 transactions in any 12-month period of their career.

Designed to recognize leaders in the real estate industry, this new designation recognizes a higher level of sales achievement than the original NUMBER1EXPERT designation that recognizes agents who have sold at least $5 million or performed 50 transactions or more in any 12-month period of their career. In order to qualify for the Diamond NUMBER1EXPERT designation, agents must complete an affidavit of sales volume, verified by their broker.

To showcase the new Diamond NUMBER1EXPERT designation, Best Image Marketing unveiled a newly redesigned version of, the online home of the original NUMBER1EXPERT designation and NUMBER1EXPERT agent property listings. Upon verification of the agent’s sales records, recipients of the Diamond NUMBER1EXPERT designation receive special placement on the main page of and are rewarded with many valuable benefits and exclusive privileges, including five free Featured Listings on, special branding, the exclusive Diamond NUMBER1EXPERT award and certificate, and many other benefits.

“While many would shy away from creating a new designation in a down market, we believe it is a critical time to recognize those who are leading the real estate industry to its greatest comeback ever,” said George Salvador, vice president and general manager of Best Image Marketing/NUMBER1EXPERT. Salvador continued, “And the response to the introduction of Diamond NUMBER1EXPERT has been tremendous. Within the first week, we had received hundreds of applications and qualified over 70 agents.
