“In a market this tight, it helps to have an experienced and connected real estate agent with access to on and off-market properties.” Said Ms. Levinson

With the closing of 5950 E Valley Vista Lane in Paradise Valley, Joan Levinson, the Number One Agent is Arizona, has now passed a record-breaking $300M in sales in 2021, and isn’t done yet.

The $12 million sale of 5950 E Valley Vista Lane is the 12th public MLS side closed by Ms. Levinson over $12 Million, representing 30% of such home sales in Arizona history, four times as many public sales as the next highest realtor, and more such ultra-luxury sales than the next 5 top all-time real estate agents in Arizona history combined. She has represented both more sellers and buyers in transactions over $10, $12, and $15 Million than any other real estate agent in Arizona history.

Ms. Levinson previously crossed 100M in April, then crossed $200M in annual 2021 sales in May.

“The beginning of the year was overwhelmingly busy. It slowed a bit during the summer, as we usually do in the Phoenix area, but it was still at a pace above average. Now it seems that the fall will be at a record pace again.” Ms. Levinson stated.

Ms. Levinson is no stranger to accolades. Named one of “America’s Best Realtors” by Newsweek in 2020, Ms. Levinson has consistently ranked as the top individual agent in Arizona every year for the past five years by various organizations. Just last month, the Phoenix Business Journal ranked her again the number one individual agent in Arizona. Last year (2020), she set her personal record at $161 Million in closed sales, a number she will more than double in 2021.

In a year where a lack of inventory has driven up home prices, Levinson has managed to continue to find homes for clients that were not listed for sale.

“In a market this tight, it helps to have an experienced and connected real estate agent with access to on and off-market properties.” Said Ms. Levinson, “There are many excellent agents out there. Selecting an agent with their pulse on the market, one who will be able to alert buyers to available homes before they come onto the market, or guide sellers through a successful public or private sale is key in 2021.”

Though she sells homes ranging from $1.5 to $20 Million, the top of the market is where she separates from the competitors. Of the all-time publicly recorded MLS transactions of built residential homes over $12 Million, Ms. Levinson has represented 35% of all home sales and 30% of all home buyers. No other Arizona real estate agent has represented more than 3 public sides at that lofty range.

“I would note that these are just the “public” MLS transactions,” Ms. Levinson emphasizes, “many luxury agents cater to the privacy needs of our clients, so not all properties are publicly listed and marketed. I also encourage my highest-end clients to purchase homes within an anonymous LLC, as all such transactions are bound to attract some attention.”
