Zephyr Real Estate Places High in RISMedia 2013 Power Broker Report
San Francisco, CA WASHINGTON, D.C. – August 5, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — RISMedia 25th Annual Power Broker Report, released in July, places Zephyr Real Estate as #79 in the nation for 2012. Zephyr’s sales volume for the year was $1.51 billion, directly competing with brokerages having far more agents and offices across the country.
“We are thrilled to honor our industry’s top brokers here in our 25th Annual Power Broker Report, a national ranking of the industry’s top 1,000 brokerage firms,” commented John E. Featherston, CEO and Publisher, in his introduction to the Report. “In preparing for this publication, one of the most amazing realizations we arrived at was just how many brokerage leaders from 25 years ago have survived two-and-a-half decades of tumultuous market conditions and rapid-fire technology change to find themselves still standing as leaders of thriving real estate companies today.”
RISMedia’s Power Broker Report & Survey is based on results garnered from a survey distributed via email and available online at www.rismedia.com. The survey ranks residential real estate brokerage firms according to closed transaction numbers and closed sales volume for the year 2012. All sales and transaction data is submitted directly by brokerage firms and verified by the firm’s financial executives, outside accounting firms and/or corporate franchise headquarters. This year’s survey received upwards of 1,300 submissions. Statistical analysis, transaction rank and sales rank is based on the top 1,000 responding firms.
