I see myself as a strategic counselor in the most important investments, and family decisions, most of my clients will make.
SARATOGA, Calif. (PRWEB) July 28, 2016
Judy Bogard-Tanigami 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. Bogard-Tanigami 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, Bogard-Tanigami had sales volume totaling $98,612,528.27, ranking her 128th 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 Bogard-Tanigami 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.”
“Having lived and worked in the Bay Area for more than 40 years, I have built a wide-ranging network that has helped me earn this prestigious ranking and I am honored to receive this recognition,” said Bogard-Tanigami. “I see myself as a strategic counselor in the most important investments, and family decisions, most of my clients will make. I strive to give the best guidance, not only on how to execute the transaction, but also on what to buy, when to sell, which issues are important and which are not. Doing all that I can to give my clients a winning edge is what matters most to me.”
Rainy Hake, COO of Alain Pinel Realtors, agreed.
“Judy has many talents as a real estate professional, but I think one that serves her clients best is her high-quality network of connections,” said Hake. “Networks such as the one Judy has built give clients an edge when buying and selling a home. Judy brings vast expertise to the table – her own and others - while creating a close relationship with her clients. We are happy to see her talents and achievements recognized through this national ranking.”
