Monica Corman of Alain Pinel Realtors’ Menlo Park office was named one America’s top real estate professionals by Real Trends, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal. She is now a member of “The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” a prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by Real Trends and advertised in The Wall Street Journal. Corman is now ranked in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 1.1 million Realtors nationwide.

The Thousand real estate professionals was announced on June 24, 2016, with four separate categories honoring the top 250 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in:

  • Individual Sales Professionals—Sales volume
  • Individual Sales Professionals—Transaction sides
  • Team Professionals—Sales volume
  • Team Professionals—Transaction sides                

For the second year, REAL Trends has added two new categories to The Thousand ranking based off of average sales price. This new category is broken down into the top 50 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in:

  • Individual Sales Professionals – Average Sales Price
  • Team Professionals – Average Sales Price

According to The Thousand, Corman had sales volume totaling $86,635,275.06, ranking her 160th in the nation among real estate professionals.

“Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what Corman did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president of classified advertising for The Wall Street Journal. “Her efforts topped 99.99 percent of more than 1.1 million Realtors nationwide.”

“I’m fortunate to work with a wide range of clients and properties,” said Corman. “Each experience teaches me something new. My background in contracts and real estate law is always an advantage, but helping my clients succeed is most important to me. I am honored to be selected for The Thousand list.”

Rainy Hake, COO of Alain Pinel Realtors, agreed.

“Monica offers an immense amount of talent and expertise to her clients,” said Hake. “Her ability to examine transactions from every angle helps win the day for her clients. We congratulate Monica on this notable achievement and wish her continued success.”
