Numbers show increase of almost 13% in closed sales over 2017

John R. Wood Properties announced today its ranking in the 2019 Real Trends 500 as #86 for largest brokerages in the U.S. based on sales volume, with over $2.5 billion. This number not only reflects the nearly 13% increase in closed sales in 2018 as compared to 2017, but also the magnitude of business that JRW is managing across Southwest Florida. The ranking further demonstrates the leading advantage JRW holds among major competitors in the area with comparable county coverage.

“Unlike some of the brokerages on this list that have physical offices in multiple counties and states, we have always been a local brokerage with the ability to represent luxury clientele internationally,” said Phil Wood, President of John R. Wood Properties. “We are very proud of our international affiliations and the exposure they bring to our listings, but it is our agents, with their professionalism and expertise in this niche market, that bring these numbers to fruition for us year after year.”

Over 1,757 brokerages were reviewed for the list this year, breaking a record for the renowned Real Trends 500 in its 32nd year. Independent verification is a requirement of Real Trends 500 and rankings are based on closed transaction sides first, followed by sales volume.
