REB's Top 100 Agents announced

by Staff Reporter 3 comments

The 2014 Real Estate Business Top 100 Agents, sponsored by Lawlab, has been released, with the cream of the crop recognised for their exceptional results and talent. 

Now in its third year, the Top 100 Agents continues to set the benchmark for real estate agents across the nation.

Despite warnings the housing boom is cooling and the property market is overheating, the figures in this year’s Top 100 Agents ranking verify that business remains strong for agents working the real estate scene in Australia.

Marshall White Boroondara director James Tostevin took out the coveted number one spot for the second year running, proving he is an irrepressible competitor at the top of his game.

Speaking to Residential Property Manager's sister title, Real Estate Business, Mr Tostevin said it means "a hell of a lot” to be ranked number one again.

“It’s a great honour,” he said.

“It’s not just the commission you write; if all things were equal and I went in for a listing against the other top agents, and we couldn’t discount commission to get business, I’d back myself to win a vast majority of listings.”

Most of the country’s heavy hitters returned to the Top 100 Agents list, but there were also a few new faces making their first appearance.

Phillips Pantzer Donnelley partner Alexander Phillips debuted at number two, along with Acton Dalkeith sales executive Vivien Yap and Clarke & Humel Property principal Michael Clarke, who both tied for the fifth spot in the Top 100.

Marshall White Toorak director Marcus Chiminello and McGrath Crows Nest partner Peter Chauncy placed third and fourth respectively, rounding out the top five best agents of 2014.

The three key metrics the ranking is based on all enjoyed a notable jump this year, with the total volume of sales smashing through the $9 billion barrier, while the average property price and the average total sales were also significantly higher than before. 

Awareness of the Top 100 Agents ranking amongst industry professionals has increased, with over 500 entrants this year – and with that comes an even stronger group of the country’s best performing agents.
