Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate announced Thursday that numerous individual agents and broker teams have been named to the highly-anticipated 2023 RealTrends The Thousand and America’s Best Real Estate Professionals lists. The Liz Leeds Luxury Team (Aspen/Vail) ranked No. 60 on The Thousand list in the small teams category with $187 million in volume while the Iverson Team (Vail) ranked No. 62 with $184 million in volume. An additional 30 individual Slifer Smith & Frampton agents and 15 small teams made the America’s Best list.
Now in its 18th year, the RealTrends lists rank the top real estate agents and teams in the country. Those who are ranked earned the designation of The Thousand — the top 500 agents and top 500 teams in the country — or one of America’s Best Real Estate Professionals — a list of all agents that meet the selective criteria for ranking. These lists represent the top 1.5% of agents and teams in the United States.
For 2022, the criteria to qualify for the RealTrends The Thousand and America’s Best Real Estate Professionals was 40 residential transaction sides or $16 million in closed sales volume for individual agents, and 60 residential transaction sides or $24 million in closed sales volume for teams.
“The sole reason we are the leading independent brokerage firm in the state is the character, integrity and work ethic of our people,” said Jason Cole, chief executive officer of Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate. “To have two teams on The Thousand list as well as 30 agents and 15 small teams recognized as the top real estate professionals in the country is both humbling and gratifying and we could not be prouder of our agents for this accomplishment.”
Of the 31 individual SSF agents named to the America’s Best list, four were from the Front Range, nine from Summit County, and 20 from Eagle County. The agents who made the top 100 in Colorado include Dana Correia (16), Catherine Jones Coburn (19), Jeff Moore (35), Marybeth Emerson (70), Deborah Fowler (91) and Eric Klein (93).
