SARATOGA, Calif. (PRWEB) July 18, 2016

Keri Nicholas of Alain Pinel Realtors' Menlo Park office was named one America's top real estate professionals by Real Trends, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal. She is now a member of "The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals," a prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by Real Trends and advertised in The Wall Street Journal. Nicholas is now ranked in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 1.1 million Realtors nationwide.

The Thousand real estate professionals was announced on June 24, 2016, with four separate categories honoring the top 250 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in:

  • Individual Sales Professionals—Sales volume
  • Individual Sales Professionals—Transaction sides
  • Team Professionals—Sales volume
  • Team Professionals—Transaction sides                

For the second year, REAL Trends has added two new categories to The Thousand ranking based off of average sales price. This new category is broken down into the top 50 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in:

  • Individual Sales Professionals – Average Sales Price
  • Team Professionals – Average Sales Price

According to The Thousand, Nicholas had sales volume totaling $182,557,200, ranking her 27th in the nation among real estate professionals.

"Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what Nicholas did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels," said Marti Gallardo, vice president of classified advertising for The Wall Street Journal. "Her efforts topped 99.99 percent of more than 1.1 million Realtors nationwide."

"I'm deeply honored to be ranked among the best of real estate professionals in the country by Real Trends," said Nicholas. "I was born and raised in Atherton. I know the local markets intimately, and I believe that knowledge, along with my intense focus on the details of every transaction, distinguishes the value I offer to my clients. I show my clients we need to lead the market, not follow it, and it shows in the result."


Rainy Hake, COO of Alain Pinel Realtors, agreed.

"We are extremely proud of Keri and all the hard work and dedication she employed on behalf of her clients to earn this remarkable honor," said Hake. "Keri's professionalism and work ethic are outstanding examples for all real estate professionals to model, and we are honored to have her on the Alain Pinel Realtors team."
