“I am obviously pleased and honored to be ranked on this ranking of the country’s top residential real estate agents,” said Nick. It represents the time and effort that we put into each customer that we serve and how much work it takes to build a successful real estate business. The level of sales it takes to qualify makes it a truly special recognition.”
