The top 500 agents in the Northern Virginia area. We pulled 2017 MLS numbers (by volume) in the Northern Virginia area that we serve: Fairfax, Loudon, and Prince William Counties. We cut off the list at #500, and the distribution was born. 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 this could be the case. First, be sure to read the disclaimer in its entirety. The Standings are based on data pulled from the counties listed only, which can cause confusion when an agent has closed business in other counties. 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. We have 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 questions about the Standings, please contact us at [email protected] and we can take a look. We all want the same thing: for the Standings to be as accurate as possible.
We have a few different brokers send us the Standings every month. They obtain MLS data from Broker Metrics on closed residential sales in our service area for the date range shown in the magazine.
It’s really simple — every feature you see has first been nominated. You can nominate other Realtors®, affiliates, brokers, owners, or yourself. Office leaders can nominate Realtors®, as well. We will consider anyone brought to our attention. We don’t know everyone’s story, so we need your help to learn about them. A nomination currently looks like this: you email us at [email protected] with the subject “Nomination: (Name of Nominee).” Please explain why you are nominating the agent 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 NOVA Real Producers community, please email our publisher, Kristin Brindley, at [email protected] Even if you don’t consider yourself a proficient 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 the top agents in Northern Virginia have personally referred every single preferred partner you see in the magazine. We won’t even take a meeting with a business that has not been vetted by a top NOVA agent 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.
