Nathan Torgerson of The Torgerson Team at Keller Williams Realty is named one of America’s most productive sales associates in “REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents,” the newly issued ranking report produced by REAL Trends and sponsored by Zillow Group.

This is the second year in a row Torgerson has been named a member of “America’s Best Real Estate Agents” and ranked in the top 100 for the state of Tennessee. Torgerson is one of eight Chattanooga Realtors to receive this recognition.

“I’m honored to be named on this ranking of the country’s top residential real estate agents,” says Torgerson. “It represents the time and effort we put into each client we serve and how much work it takes to build a successful real estate career.”

“REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents” ranks more than 12,600 residential real estate professionals based on their real estate sales during 2016. All production numbers are verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy. This group of real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.

The real estate professionals are ranked in four categories:

  • Individual agent – Sales volume
  • Individual agent – Transaction sides
  • Agent team – Sales volume
  • Agent team – Transaction sides

To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2016. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume.

“The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed 8.6 transactions in 2016 and had less than $1.3 million in sales,” says Steve Murray, president of REAL Trends. “To say that Nathan is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”
