The Thousand real estate professionals was announced on June 26, 2015, with four separate categories honoring the top 250 residential agents and agent teams for excellence.

- Team Professionals—Sales volume
- Team Professionals—Transaction sides
According to The Thousand, DLP Realty had 739 transaction sides, ranking them 14th in the nation.
“The best individual agents and teams—including DLP Realty’s award-winning efforts—were nothing short of phenomenal considering the recovering real estate market,” said Steve Murray, founder of Denver-based publishing and communications company REAL Trends, which compiled the list.
“Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what DLP Realty 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 1,100,000 REALTORS nationwide.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to once again be named to The Thousand. This is our fifth year in a row on the list and our highest ranking to date—moving up from #15 in 2014 and #25 in 2013,” said Don Wenner, President and CEO of DLP Realty. “Even with the market’s challenges, it’s incredibly gratifying to know our team is helping more and more amazing clients find their dream homes as well as help them sell their properties quickly and for the highest price possible.”
