More than 110 @properties brokers or broker teams topped $5 million in closed sales volume in 2011. Twenty-one of those brokers or teams exceeded $10 million in closed sales volume, and 12 topped $20 million.
@properties also presented its prestigious Road to the Rolex award to brokers who achieved a minimum of $10 million in annual closed sales volume and $250,000 in gross commission income for the first time under @properties. Ten recipients received a Rolex watch: Lori Neuschel, Elise Rinaldi, Amanda McMillan, Leigh Marcus, Steve McEwen, Ken Jungwirth, Catherine Brennan, Susan Maman, Lisa Peck and Lee Cherney.
