Kathy Bridgman of Alain Pinel Realtors’ Los Altos 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. Bridgman 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, Bridgman had sales volume totaling $144,531,000, ranking her 53rd 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 Bridgman 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.”
“By mitigating the surprises, making sure my clients understand what to expect and providing them with insights and expertise I’ve accumulated throughout my career, I offer a level of service rarely found in today’s real estate market,” said Bridgman. “To have that recognized by Real Trends, and to be counted among the industry’s best, is a sincere honor.”
Rainy Hake, COO of Alain Pinel Realtors, agreed.
“Kathy’s wealth of experience and first-class client service continue to make her an asset to any client’s transaction,” said Hake. “We are thrilled to have her efforts recognized at the national level by Real Trends, and we are so very happy for her as she stands among our country’s best real estate professionals.”
