An exclusive ranking has revealed the total value of sales Australia’s top agents have achieved over the past 12 months, and how this compares to years prior.
The REB Top 100 Agents ranking, partnered exclusively by ActivePipe, has been handed down this week, setting the benchmark for success in residential real estate sales.
Now in its ninth year, the ranking identifies those a cut above the rest, showcasing those agents who have navigated their way through challenging markets and used their expertise to ensure the best results.
This year saw the total number of sales for the top 100 decrease to 9,124 from 9,349 in 2019. This represents a steady decline over the past three years, with 9,507 sales recorded for the top 100 in 2018.
Confined to just the top 10 agents, the total number of sales was 1,269, which is also down from 2019 figures where the total number of sales recorded by the top 10 agents sat at 1,436. In 2018, the total number was 1,378.
