45 Coldwell Banker Bain | Seal Agents Named To REAL Trends Best Real Estate Agents List

Written by Posted On Friday, 05 August 2016 17:22

REAL Trends has released its 2016 REALTrends America's Best Real Estate Agents list, and 45 Coldwell Banker Bain | Seal agents from Washington and Oregon are included. This is REAL Trends’ fourth year producing the ranking, with sponsorship by Zillow Group. The list ranks the most productive agents by state and metropolitan area based on closed transaction sides and closed volume.

“We are amazed at the performance of our agents again this year,” said Bill Riss, CB Bain | Seal CEO. “In 2015 we had 22 who made the list, so this represents a 50 percent increase in our level of performance.” Riss continued, “And given less than one percent of the agents and teams in America account for five percent of all sales, this is a significant achievement. We couldn’t be more proud of their accomplishments.”
