Searching for your home sweet home can be daunting. The long list of "musts" and "wants" paired with limits of price range and location make it difficult to sort through the many homes listed for sale. The most successful realtors are the ones who alleviate your stress by showing that they have your best interests in mind: the ones who make you feel they are truly working for you.

That's why it's good to know which realtors have a record of success - especially in today's fluctuating housing market. Newsweek partnered with REAL Trends –the trusted source of news, analysis, and information on the residential brokerage industry since 1987– to sort through the data and provide you with a list of America's Best Real Estate Professionals. We highlight the top real estate professionals by volume within each state. You can select the states on the interactive map or in the table below. If your company is listed below, you can get in touch to find out more about the licensing options.

Applicants submit an application; the fee does not guarantee placement. An individual must have closed at least 50 sides OR $20 million in sales volume in calendar year 2019. All supplied figures need to be based on closed residential business for calendar year 2019. Figures submitted can be for closed transaction sides and/or closed dollar sales volume. Applicants must submit verification including business tax returns. The local or state Realtor association must confirm the data.

When an agent represents both sides of a transaction, both sides are counted. When one side is handled, only one side can be included. Co-listings count as one-half of a transaction; referrals are not included.

All residential sales of 1 to 4 unit buildings, including single family, condominium and co-op units and lots sold for residential uses are included.

REAL Trends carefully reviews related websites and other sources to ensure the accurate description of individual sales (as opposed to team or brokerage sales).
