It's that time of the year when Mpls St. Paul Magazine and Twin Cities Business notify the agents who have been selected as Super Real Estate Agents. I am proud that this makes the fourth year in a row that I have earned this award.
What sets this award apart is that sales volume plays no part in the process. Instead, 120,000 consumers who have actually worked with real estate agents (including recent homebuyers) are asked to nominate and grade real estate agents based on nine criteria: communication, customer service, integrity, market knowledge, negotiation, finding the right home, marketing of a home, closing preparation, and overall satisfaction.
Nominees are scored, screened for disciplinary actions and reviewed by a distinguished panel of real estate industry leaders to come up with the annual list, including only 3-5% of Minnesota real estate agents.
I always recognize the best in the industry when scanning the list each year. We (consumers and real estate professionals alike) are privleged to have so many dedicated, outstanding real estate agents in our area providing exceptional service each and every day.
