Eleventh(!) Straight Year on the List

It’s out:  the 2018 list of “Super Real Estate Agents.”

Jointly compiled by Mpls. St. Paul magazine, Twin Cities Business, and Crescendo Business Services, the annual list identifies the top 5% of the Twin Cities real estate agent population.

Their selection process:

“Tens of thousands of home buyers who have purchased a home for $250,000 or more are asked to name and evaluate agents they’ve worked with directly. From there, a panel of industry experts reviews each agent on the preliminary list. The agents who are ultimately selected represent the top 5 percent of Twin Cities real estate agents.” 

—”Moving On Up”; Mpls. St. Paul magazine (Nov., 2018).

According to the magazine, the criteria for rating agents are:

—Customer service
—Market knowledge
—Closing preparation
—Finding the right home
—Marketing a home
—Overall satisfaction

Sounds good to me.

The only thing I’d add is that, if you count all the agents who’ve made the list the last eleven years in a row, you’re no longer talking about the top 5% of all Twin Cities agents, but something like the top .50%.

I’m happy to report I’m in that select group (about 50 Twin Cities Realtors out of more than 10,000 total).
