Real Estate All-Stars 2016
The real estate industry has made tremendous headway in the last fi ve years. It’s a great time for real estate in metro Detroit, and if you’re in the market to sell or buy a home, now is the time. Before making that big decision, though, having the industry statistics is a great place to start — and it helps to know who holds rank as the top REALTORS® in metro Detroit.
To get accurate real estate statistics and to receive a list of the top 5 percent of all REALTORS® in metro Detroit, Hour Media turned to the largest broker-owned multi-list service in Michigan, MiRealSource (MLS) of Troy.
MiRealSource maintains a database of real estate listings throughout Michigan, and syndicates listing information to sites and apps — such as REALTOR.com, Homesnap, and many more — for consumers to access. MiRealSource’s No. 1-rated web-based system allows agents to access all of the available real estate tools and information so they can provide the best service to their clients.
“There are three indicators that the market is really hot — the median sold price of homes is selling at a record-high 97.5 percent of the listing price; the days on market have been signifi cantly decreasing over the last couple years and are down even more, to 16.7 percent, from this same time last year; and the median price per square foot of homes in southeast Michigan has doubled in value ($46-$99), so homes are selling for more, selling closer to the asking price, and selling faster,” says Taylor Fedewa, MiRealSource’s director of communications and photography.
MiRealSource invited REALTOR®s whose closed sales volume were within the top 5 percent in metro Detroit to participate in this listing. The REALTORS® who granted permission are named in the Real Estate All-Star list. Hiring a REALTOR® like those listed — with their level of experience and access to the best tools — can provide clients with the most accurate data and the best home-buying and selling experience.
“It is an honor to share this list of outstanding REALTORS®, and recognize their hard work and success over the past year. There are many agents in metro Detroit who deserve to be recognized, but we believe this list is a fair representation of the industry leaders,” Fedewa says.
