WARSAW — A local real estate team has been recognized as one of the top 1,000 in the industry nationwide.
Dan and Amanda Harstine of Integrity Real Estate in Warsaw was named one of America’s Top 1,000 Real State Professionals by REAL Trends, in combination with the Wall Street Journal. The announcement was published in the 14th Annual “The Thousand list of America’s top 1,000 Real Estate Sales Professionals and Teams.”
The ranking is the seventh time the Harstines have achieved the designation in their careers. The list, also known as The Thousand, is an annual national awards ranking of the top one tenth of one percent of more than 1.4 million agents or teams eligible to make the list nationwide.
“The best individual agents and teams’ award-winning efforts were phenomenal considering the competition in the real estate market,” said Steve Murray, president of Castle Rock, Colo.-based consulting company REAL Trends, which compiled the list.
The Thousand is divided into four categories, each listing the top 250 designees, including individual agent sales volume, individual agent transaction sides, agent team sales volume and agent team transaction sides.
“The real estate sales professionals ranked in The Thousand have proven that they have the skills to grow their businesses year after year,” said Murray. “The average (agent) sold nine homes in 2018. The average agent ranked in The Thousand sold 217 homes and the average team sold over 562 homes. These kinds of results show that those who commit to being full-time professionals can build meaningful businesses and succeed beyond expectations. Achieving this level of results is simply incredible.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to be named to The Thousand,” said Dan Harstine, who serves clients primarily in Kosciusko County. “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.”
Dan and Amanda Harstine have been involved in the local real estate industry since 1995, serving Kosciusko and surrounding counties. The Harstines have been named America’s Best Real Estate Agents nine consecutive years by Zillow/Trulia. Through their career, the Harstines have successfully closed more than 3,000 real estate transactions.
