Queensland’s coveted ‘A List’, which highlights the top one percent of sales performers in the state, has been unveiled for the fourth year running.
Mercedes-Benz Brisbane is the inaugural and major sponsor of the event. Emily Kindred from the A List said their support makes the event possible.
“Without the support of our sponsors, Mercedes-Benz Brisbane and PriceFinder, we wouldn’t have an A List. We’re so appreciative of their ongoing support,” she said.
The list of 150 agents is spread across every market of Queensland and assesses 18,000 registered salespeople based on their sales performance and stock volumes, relevant to their individual marketplaces.
Revealing insight into best real estate agents across the state, the 2016 rankings were formulated through Price Finder and showed that one in 12 properties across Queensland is sold by an A-Lister.
“As leading agents know, the tools used are critical to success in the current market. The robustness of Pricefinder data coupled with a best-in-class user experience makes it a core part of Domain’s agent offering, and we are pleased to be the official data provider for this year’s A-List. Congratulations to the winners,” said Damon Pezaro, Domain Group Chief Product Officer.
The 2016 results showed the average salesperson in Queensland made nine sales across three suburbs, with a total value of $4.5 million, whereas the average A List salesperson made 43 sales across nine suburbs, with a total value of $21 million.
The first non-self nominated award in the state, one in four agents on the 2016 A List have made the rankings at least three years consecutively. One such A-Lister is Ray White Broadbeach agent, Sam Guo, who has been named on the A List since it launched in 2013.
Sam sold $110 million worth of real estate last financial year and is not only a prominent name on the A List, he’s the Ray White Group’s number one performer internationally.
Hosting a one-day conference to bring the A List agents together on 9 November 2016, the event is tailored to not only recognise the industry’s leaders, but also provide a platform of learning and thought leadership through keynote speakers.
Speakers at this year’s event include Steve Sammartino, an expert on marketing in the technology age, Kristen Hansen who will teach about emotional resilience and brain-based development and Domain Group’s chief economist, Dr Andrew Wilson.
