RE/MAX Northern Illinois brokers and sales teams recently recognized as ranking among the nation's 1,000 leading sales producers.

RE/MAX brokers and RE/MAX sales teams from Northern Illinois are among those named to REAL Trends’ 2015 “The Thousand.” This annual ranking, based on prior-year sales achievements, recognizes 250 top sales producers nationwide in each of four categories. The categories are closed transaction sides and closed sales volume for individual agents and for teams.

The Jane Lee Team of RE/MAX Top Performers in Lake Bluff, Ill., the Kombrink-Lobrillo Team of RE/MAX Great American North, St. Charles, Ill., and the Leslie McDonnell Team of RE/MAX Suburban, Libertyville, Ill., took honors in both categories. Lee ranked 85th in closed transactions and 111th in sales volume. Kombrink-Lobrillo ranked 98th in closed transactions and 224th in sales volume. McDonnell ranked 248th in closed transactions and 220th in sales volume.

Also named to the top 250 teams in closed transactions is the HomesByMarco Team of RE/MAX Suburban, Libertyville, which ranked 140th.

Among individual brokers, RE/MAX professionals in the top 250 based on closed transaction sides are Sarah Leonard of RE/MAX Suburban, Schaumburg, Ill., ranked 63rd; Ed Lukasik, Jr., of RE/MAX Professionals, Bolingbrook, Ill., ranked 94th; Steve Malik, RE/MAX Professionals Select, Naperville, Ill., ranked 199th; and Rich Bassford of RE/MAX Elite Homes, Moline, Ill., ranked 201st.
