Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 29, 2016 -- In 2015 Lucid Realty was among the top 1% of Chicago area REALTOR® teams for the second consecutive year according to recent rankings released by the Chicago Association of REALTORS®. In the spring issue of the association's Chicago REALTOR® Magazine Lucid Realty achieved the Silver Level for dollar volume and the Bronze Level for unit volume. This is the sixth year that Lucid Realty has been recognized as a top Chicago REALTOR® team.
According to Chicago REALTOR® Magazine "These awards recognize the hard work, superior market knowledge, mastery of technology and tools, and cooperation with other REALTORS® that have helped build your success...C.A.R. Sales Awards honor the achievements of our top producers, and our members' collective efforts to bring the highest level of professionalism, ethics, commitment and service to buyers and sellers in the Chicagoland area."
"My partner, Sari Levy, and I are energized by the confidence that our clients have continued to show in us over the years, which has enabled us to earn these awards," said Gary Lucido, President of Lucid Realty. "Our discounted commissions, buyer rebates, and hourly fee models have saved these clients thousands – even tens of thousands - of dollars in transaction costs. As more home buyers and sellers learn of our compelling alternative to the entrenched real estate agents I fully expect that we will climb even higher in the Chicago area rankings."
As always, Gary cautions consumers to not focus too much on real estate sales rankings. He advises them to pay more attention to precisely what an agent is going to do for them, at what cost, and then hold that agent accountable for delivering on their promises. Gary warns that top producers don't necessarily deliver top service and you should not assume that you get what you pay for. It's always a good idea to check agents' online ratings at sites like Yelp, Angie's List, Google, Trulia, and Zillow to see through the slick sales pitches.
The data for the 2015 C.A.R. sales rankings comes from Midwest Real Estate Data, which operates the Chicagoland multiple listing service.
