Search begins for country’s top agent

Search begins for country’s top agent

19 January 2016 by Staff Reporter 0 comments

The countdown has begun to find Australia’s number one agent – and to see if James Tostevin can win the title for the fourth year running.

Entries are now open for the annual Top 100 Agents ranking, with submissions due by 12 February. Click here to enter.

The ranking applies to settled sales for the 2015 calendar year, and will be calculated based on dollar volumes, number of properties sold and average sale price.

Mr Tostevin, a director at Melbourne agency Marshall White, topped last year’s ranking after booking $350.2 million of business in 2014, based on 187 sales at an average price of $1.87 million.

Although everyone on the Top 100 Agents ranking posted outstanding results, it was possible to make the list with volumes of less than $70 million and an average sale price of less than $560,000.

REB editor Nick Bendel said it will be interesting to see how many first-timers make this year’s ranking after 36 new faces appeared in 2015.

“Some outstanding young agents have been making waves in the past few years, and a place on the Top 100 Agents ranking would send a strong message that they've really arrived,” he said.

“But the established agents won’t surrender their places willingly – the Top 100 Agents ranking is now the definitive industry benchmark, so they’ll be hungry to prove to their local markets that they’re still at the top of their game.”
