Pleasanton Realtor, Doug Buenz of The 680 Group at Alain Pinel Realtors has been named one of REAL Trends’ Best Real Estate Agents in America in the newly issued national ranking report produced by REAL Trends. To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transactions or $20 million in sales volume in 2012. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transactions or $30 million in closed sales volume. Buenz closed in excess of $34 million in sales.
“I am obviously pleased and honored to be ranked as one of the country’s top residential real estate agents by this prestigious publication,” said Buenz. “It represents the time and effort that I and my team put into each client that we serve and how much work it takes to build a successful real estate career. The level of sales it takes to qualify makes it a truly special recognition.”
REAL Trends’ Best Real Estate Agents in America ranks nearly 6,500 residential real estate agents solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2012. The realtors are ranked in four categories: Sales Volume by Individual agent, Transaction sides by Individual agent, Sales volume by Agent team and Transaction sides by Agent team. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.
“To say that Doug is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends’ Best Real Estate Agents in America and editor of REAL Trends. The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed fewer than eight transactions in 2012 and had less than $1.5 million in sales. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding”
