July 24, 2013, 9:10 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Helen Oliveri Team was named one of America's top real estate teams by The Wall Street Journal and REAL Trends for the third year in a row. The Helen Oliveri Team is now a member of the “ The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” a prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by the two respected publications. The Helen Oliveri Team is now ranked in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 1 million REALTORS® nationwide.
The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals was announced in June, 2012 with four separate categories honoring the top 250 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in:
- Individual Sales Professionals – Sales volume
- Individual Sales Professionals – Transaction sides (in each real estate transaction, there are two sides that can be represented by a real estate agent: a buyer's and a seller's.)
- Team Professionals – Sales Volume
- Team Professionals – Transaction sides
According to The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals, The Helen Oliveri Team had transaction sides totaling 367, ranking them #66 in the nation, up from the previous year of #164.
“The best individual agents and teams – including The Helen Oliveri Team's award-winning efforts – were nothing short of phenomenal considering the challenging real estate market,” said Steve Murray, founder of Denver-based publishing and communications company REAL Trends , which compiled the list. “Ironically, if you look at the top 250 in each category you will find that collectively, their sales volume and transaction sides held up quite nicely compared with the market as a whole.”
“Becoming a member of such an elite group as the The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what The Helen Oliveri Team did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president, Global Sales, Vertical Markets Advertising for The Wall Street Journal. “Their efforts topped 99.99 percent of the more than 1 million REALTORS nationwide.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to be named to The Thousand for the third time in a row,” said Oliveri, who serves clients primarily in Northern Cook and Lake Counties within communities such as Hawthorn Woods, Long Grove, Kildeer, Lake Zurich, Mundelein, Glenview, Morton Grove, Northfield, Northbrook, Wilmette and the entire Chicagoland North Shore and Northwest areas. “Even with the market's challenges, it's incredibly gratifying to help clients find their dream homes as well as help them sell their properties quickly and for the highest price possible.”
