Naples, Florida (PRWEB) August 03, 2015
Engel & Völkers Florida, part of the European-based premium real estate brand, announced that one of the firm’s United States real estate advisors has been named a member of “The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” by REAL Trends, and the The Wall Street Journal, a prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by the two respected publications.
With $148,171,912 in sales volume, real estate advisor Carol Sollak is on top of her game. Carol Sollak of Engel & Völkers Wellington is also a Private Office advisor, an exclusive international network of Engel & Völkers’ top real estate professionals. Carol credits her success to her love for people, horses, and the “art of the deal”. As the proud owner of Brooklyn Blues, an award winning show jumping horse, Sollak is in-tune with what her clients want and need in their properties. Brooklyn is trained and ridden by top rider, Eric Lamaze, who is Sollak’s best friend and an avid real estate investor. Carol has been an active member of the equestrian community in Wellington and across the globe for over 20 years and has grown her to business to what it is through the relationships that she’s forged along the way. “Over the years, my clients become my friends,” says Sollak.
“Engel & Völkers’ network has continued its rapid expansion in key North American markets as a direct result of the hard work of our premier real estate advisors, who truly represent the best of the best,” said Anthony Hitt, CEO of Engel & Völkers North America. “Carol contributes to the collective strength of Engel & Völkers North America through her outstanding passion and dedication to providing exceptional service to leading buyers and sellers across the United States.”
The Thousand is published each year and is based on independently verified data provided by U.S. brokerages and real estate associations throughout the United States. The list is comprised of categorized rankings that include the Top 250 Agents by Sales Volume and by Transaction Sides, and the Top 250 Teams by Sales Volume and by Transactions Sides, as well as two newly added categories based off of average sales price, which include Top 250 Agents by Average Sales Price and Top 250 Teams by Average Sales Price.
Sollak was ranked in the Top 250 Agents by Transaction Volume again for 2015. She is now ranked in the top one half of one percent of the more than 1,100,000 REALTORS® nationwide.
“The best individual agents and teams 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.
