Summer is the hottest time of the year — not only because the mercury rises during June, July and August but also because summer is when REAL Trends, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal releases its annual ranking of individual agents and teams. THE THOUSAND spotlights agents who are the top of the top, the highest producers in the industry. This year, TEEDHAZE continued its tradition of making a splash in the REAL Trends report, finishing first among all Sotheby’s International Realty teams worldwide, with the second highest sales volume among real estate teams in San Francisco, and second among all San Francisco agents.
2015 was a banner year for real estate statewide and across the U.S., in the Bay Area and in San Francisco. Among the REAL Trends lists, 15 Bay Area teams and 31 individual Realtors ranked among the top 250 — five of the teams and 15 of the individual agents were based in San Francisco. Only one, Coldwell Banker veteran Malin Giddings and her team, sold more real estate than TEEDHAZE in 2015.
For the 2015 calendar year, TEEDHAZE closed $276,586,000 in sales, good for 23rd nationally among real estate teams and a $40 million improvement over 2014, when the team ranked 22nd nationally and first in San Francisco. In 2013, TEEHAZE sold $200 million and ranked 28th in the U.S. and first again among teams in San Francisco, second overall to Giddings. TEEDHAZE has been the top producing team of Realtors in San Francisco for three years running, trading the top overall spot in the city with Giddings each year.
With almost $280 million in sales for 2015, TEEDHAZE outdistanced the next highest-producing San Francisco team by $100 million and the next two-highest producing Sotheby’s teams by $160 and $170 million, respectively.
None of this would have been possible without our great team of agents and support staff and the resources we have at hand. We’re proud to be the number one team in San Francisco and excited to continue to build on the foundation we’ve created at TEEDHAZE. We look forward to continuing to set the pace in San Francisco, Marin, the East Bay and beyond.
