Earls Lappin Team

John R. Wood Properties, the leading real estate brokerage in Southwest Florida, today announced the Earls | Lappin team was recently ranked seventh in the nation in this year's REAL Trends "The Thousand" ranking of the country's top real estate sales professionals, with 2019 closed sales volume of $274,885,000.

"In an industry which has nearly 1.4 million Realtors® involved in residential real estate sales, the fact that these sales associates have achieved the level of sales it takes to be in this esteemed group is outstanding," said Phil Wood, President of John R. Wood Properties. "This team of superb professionals is ranked as #1 small team in Florida (2-5 sales professionals), which is another testament to their dedication and excellence."

"We are committed to delivering the highest quality service to home buyers and sellers," said Broker and Director Bill Earls, who moved to Naples from Maryland in 1983 with his wife and two children, and has been John R. Wood Properties' top sales producer for the last 33 years. "Our team consists of market leaders with distinctive personalities, deep local knowledge, and the ability to address market-specific trends to the benefits of our discerning clientele."

"We understand the unique requirements of buyers and sellers in the Naples luxury home market," said Director Larry Lappin, a top producing agent for over 25 years. "We are committed to a continued legacy of professionalism and confidentiality on both sides of the sale."

JRW Team March and April


REAL Trends 500 recently released their rankings for 2020. For 33 years, their experts have compiled data to highlight the performance of the top residential real estate brokerages across the country. Their annual report highlights brokerages by: transaction sides, sales volume, affiliation, top movers, core services, The Billionaire's Club, and nation's best.

Among the honors that JRW received, ranking #38 in the Nation for Independent (non-franchise) Brokerages, with $2.63 billion in closed sales, was one of the most profound. Many of the top brokerages above this ranking are working across much larger geographic areas than the two-county area of Lee and Collier that JRW represents.  

Other rankings JRW received included 22nd for largest volume company within Luxury Portfolio's collection of luxury brokers from around the world, and 77th in the nation among all franchise brokerages.

To see all the rankings view the full report here.

A huge thank you to all our REALTORS® for your hard work and dedication to serving the SWFL area. It's what makes these rankings possible!
