The top 500 agents in the D.C. Metro area. We pulled 2016 MLS numbers (by volume) in the Greater D.C. Metro Are: Washington, D.C.; Montgomery Country, Maryland; FCAAR; PGCAAR; and McLean, Arlington and Alexandria, in Fairfax Country, VA. We cut off the list at #500, and the distribution was born. We did this again in January 2018 based on the new top 500 agents in sales volume for 2017. So we have a few new top producers who have joined us – and everyone from last year’s top 500 is still with us. Based on 2017’s list, the minimum production level for our group is $15 million. The list will reset at the end of 2018 for next year and continue to update annually.

There are a number of reasons why that could be the case. First, be sure to read the disclaimer in its entirety. The Standings are only based on data pulled from the countries listed, which can cause confusion when realtor ahs closed business in other countries. Also, we pull the data on the exact date listed, so if the closed transaction is not submitted by that date, it will not be included. I’ve also found that some teams report their data under one MLS ID, and other teams report each agent individually, which of course alters the ranking. There are a few other factors at play, so if you have a questions about the Standings, please contact me and we can take a look: Kristin.Brindley@realproducersmag.com. We all want the same thing: for the Standings to be a accurate as possible.

We have a few brokers from different brokerages email us the Standings every single month. They obtain the data from Broker Metrics, email the data to us, and we submit. We do not manipulate the data.

It’s really simple – every feature you see has first been nominated. You can nominate other Realtors (or yourselves!), or affiliates, brokers, owners, and office leaders can nominate realtors, as well. We will consider anyone brought to our attention because we don’t know everyone’s stories, so we need your help to learn about them. A nomination currently looks like this: you email us at Info@dcmetrorealproducers.com with the subject “Nomination: (Name of Nominee).” Please explain why you are nominating them to be featured. It could be that they have an amazing story that needs to be told, perhaps they overcame extreme obstacles, they are an exceptional leader, have the best customer service, or they give back to the community in a big way, etc. The next step is an interview with us to ensure it’s a good fit. If all works out, then we put the wheels in motion for our writer to conduct an interview and write the article, and for our photographers to schedule a photo shoot.

Zero, zilch, zippo, nada, nil. It costs nothing, my friends, so nominate away!

If you are interested in writing an article to give back to the DC Real Producers community, please email me at Kristin.Brindley@realproducersmag.com. Even if you don’t consider yourself a profilic writer, but have great ideas to share, let’s talk!

Anyone listed as a “preferred partner” in the front of the magazine is part of this community. They will have an ad in every issue of the magazine, attend our quarterly events, and be part of our online community. We don’t just find these businesses off the street, nor do we work with all businesses that approach us. One or many of you have personally referred every single preferred partner you see in here. We won’t even take a meeting with a business that has not been vetted by one of you and “stamped for approval,” in a sense. Our goal is to create a powerhouse network not only of the best realtors in the area but the best affiliates, as well, so we can all grow stronger together.
