LIV Sotheby’s International Realty (LIV SIR) is pleased to announce that several of its experienced broker professionals were recognized in the 2020 REAL Trends “The Thousand.” The annual report is a summary of the top 1,000 independent real estate agents and teams in the United States.
The REAL Trends “The Thousand” comprises four categories: the top 250 agents by transaction sides, top 250 agents by sales volume, top 250 teams by transaction sides and top 250 teams by sales volume. LIV SIR was well represented among the nation’s top producing individual brokers and broker teams with Anne Dresser Kocur, The Stockton Group, and The Behr Team all ranking in the esteemed list of real estate professionals.
Anne Dresser Kocur, based out of LIV SIR’s Denver Tech Center office, was ranked the 72 of the list of top brokers by volume. Dresser was also ranked as the No. 1 individual broker for LIV SIR in the Denver Metro Area in 2019 and achieved over $110 million in sales during last year. She has over a 95% client repeat/referral rate, and has won accolades that include being named Top Individual Producer by the Denver Metro Association of Realtors.
“I’m fortunate that I don’t go to work every day; I go to a place where dreams are created! My greatest passion in real estate is creating connections that allow buyers and sellers to fulfill their goals,” said Dresser. “The relationships made last a lifetime and bring me energy for continued success!”
The Stockton Group, a team of LIV SIR brokers servicing the resort communities with a focus on the Vail Valley, was ranked 25 in the Small Team category by volume. The team, which is led by Tye Stockton, who was named the No.1 broker in the Vail Valley for 2018 and 2019, includes real estate advisors Tom Dunn and Patrick Barrett, and is supported by skilled marketing and operation professionals, Bari Wiens and Brooke Maline. The team, which was ranked the No.1 real estate team in the Vail Valley for 2018 and 2019, has closed nearly $1.3 billion in career sales, including the $23 million sale of 107 Rockledge Drive, the most significant sale of a home in the Vail Valley.
“Surrounding yourself with great people makes such a difference in this business and the team at The Stockton Group is what makes us successful,” said Stockton. “Our extensive market knowledge combined with our highly professional approach gives us a leg up in the Vail Valley.”
The Behr Team, another top producing broker team based in the Denver Metro area, consisting of Josh Behr, Linda Behr, Jake Mackensen, and Nicole Scholle, was ranked 26 in the Small Team category by volume. Consistently ranked as the number one team in Denver, and recently ranked in the top 50 in the nation, The Behr Team has successfully brokered more than $1.5 billion in residential real estate transactions since 2000.
“We are honored and humbled to be recognized as the #26 team in the country,” commented Josh Behr. “The hard-work of everyone on The Behr Team and the platform created by the Sotheby’s brand has helped us perform at this high level and for that, we are eternally grateful.”
In total, Sotheby’s International Realty claimed 52 of the top 250 sales associates in the REAL Trends individual sales volume category, more than any other real estate company, accounting for 20% of the category and marking a record for the Sotheby’s International Realty brand.
“For another consecutive year, Sotheby’s International Realty continues to lead the industry in the individual sales volume category,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer of Sotheby’s International Realty. “The REAL Trends rankings are a verification of the hard work and achievements of our affiliated professionals and it gives me great pride to see a significant number of our sales associates and teams be recognized for their achievements.
