Anyone can claim to be the best. From the "best burger in town" to the "world's best cup of coffee," claims of excellence seek to impress — whether lit up on a neon sign, printed across a T-shirt, or plastered all over social media. But simply saying it doesn't make it true. Professing to be top dog falls far short of being a verifiable fact — it cries for data to back it up. In every game of poker, you've got to lay your hand on the table in order to win. And, today's consumers have become savvy enough to need more than just a slick tagline to elicit a feeling of trust, to inspire action and to empower connection.

Well, our small-town team at MCKRE has risen to the top of the heap by a long shot, and we're ready to show our cards. We're talking about HW Media and RealTrends' "The Thousand," an annual list of the most successful real estate professionals in the country. Those who are lucky enough to make the ranking can be categorized in the top one-tenth of 1 percent of the more than 1.4 million licensed Realtors nationwide. This epic tally lists a total of 77 teams and MCKRE ranks within the category of "team, large, volume." Boy are we proud!

Worldwide, Keller Williams is the largest real estate franchise, with over 180,000 agents. Here in the US, the company is the frontrunner in both sales count and volume. With an emphasis on technology, culture and respect inside its office doors as well as a hyper-focus on client care, KW consistently outpaces the competition. In 2021, Keller Williams was recognized by Glassdoor as one of the "Best Places to Work" and Forbes touts KW as one of "America's Best Employers."

When the yardstick used to measure success is so huge and so far-reaching that if you were to stand it upright it just might skim the stars — it's time to speak up about your status. We are honored to be among this collection of hard-working, dedicated agents who have proven, in fact, to be— the best of the best!
