The industry’s best agents are set to battle it out for a lucrative position in the second annual Real Estate Business Top 100 Agents ranking, with submissions officially opening today.
Now in its second year, the Top 100 Agents ranking will identify the industry’s most productive and successful agents across a range of key business indicators.
Peter Chauncy of McGrath Estate Agents Lane Cove, in Sydney, was the big winner last year. His 79 property sales totalling $88 million earned the agent - who now operates his own McGrath Estate Agents' shopfront in nearby Crows Nest - the title as Australia’s number one agent.
According to Real Estate Business editor Simon Parker, the Top 100 Agents ranking offers significant marketing value to those agents who achieve Top 100 status.
“There are some agents out there who are streets ahead of their peers and we want to recognise their achievement and highlight the business attitudes and practices that define them,” Mr Parker said.
“All of Real Estate Business’ Top 100 Agents can rightfully claim to be Australia’s best. This will undoubtedly have immense value in terms of future marketing opportunities and recruitment initiatives.”
Participants will be ranked according to a range of criteria, including settled commissions, number of sales and listings, location and support staff numbers based on their 2012 calendar year results.
The list will not only focus on the big volume generators but also those agents who are highly productive, wherever they’re located in Australia – in cities or regional centres.
The data, which will be supplied by agents individually via an online poll, will be independently verified by the agent’s head office, Real Estate Business’ research partner, RP Data, and where required, other independent sources.
