It’s his combination of business professionalism and personal relationships that set Joe apart from the field.
SARATOGA, Calif. (PRWEB) August 03, 2016
Joe Piazza of Alain Pinel Realtors’ Los Gatos office was named one America’s top real estate professionals by Real Trends, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal. He 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. Piazza 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, Piazza had sales volume totaling $101,438,063, ranking him 122 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 Piazza did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president of classified advertising for The Wall Street Journal. “His efforts topped 99.99 percent of more than 1.1 million Realtors nationwide.”
“It’s an honor to be counted among the nation’s best real estate professionals,” said Piazza. “As a Realtor who came out of the financial and business services community, I understand the details of a transaction are what separate a positive experience from a challenging experience. That’s where I focus my attention, and I’m grateful for the appreciation and trust of my clients for my efforts.”
Rainy Hake, COO of Alain Pinel Realtors, agreed.
“Joe approaches each real estate transaction through the lens of a seasoned business professional, making sure every detail is examined and addressed,” said Hake. “It’s his combination of business professionalism and personal relationships that set Joe apart from the field. His clients rave about him, and we’re happy for his success and to have him on the Alain Pinel Realtors team.”
