Are you working with a top Realtor®?

Ever wonder how your Realtor® stacks up against the rest? Well, now there's a survey done by the California Association of Realtors® that lists traits that top producing Realtors possess. Of course, this would vary from region to region, but it is an interesting study. We find many people jump on the real estate agent bandwagon during the "up" markets, only to fall by the wayside when the going gets tough. We've been through the up and down real estate market cycles, and have seen it happen.

From this survey, we learn that top Realtors® (defined as "a REALTOR® with at least 40 closed escrow sales or a minimum sales volume of $18 million in the previous year"):

. Have been in real estate for 14 years

. Work an average of 61 hours per week

. One-third of all top producers have at least 2 personal assistants

. Spend 76% of their time working with sellers
