Matt Johnson of Engel & Völkers was named one of America’s most productive sales associates as a part of Real Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents, the newly issued ranking report produced by Real Trends and sponsored by the Zillow Group. He is now listed among “America’s Best Real Estate Agents,” and ranked No. 3 for the State of Florida.
Real Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents ranks more than 12,600 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2016. “This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States,” said Steve Murray, president of Real Trends.

For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume. The individuals ranked in America’s Best Real Estate Agents had an average of 73 transaction sides and an average sales volume of almost $37 million. Teams ranked in America’s Best Real Estate Agents had an average of 144 transaction sides and an average sales volume of almost $61 million. This ensures that only the best of the best are included on the prestigious list.
“The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed 8.6 transactions in 2016 and had less than $1.3 million in sales,” Murray said. “To say that Matt Johnson is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”
Murray added that he was pleased that two of the nation’s most prominent online real estate web sites, Trulia and Zillow, have partnered with Real Trends on this project.
“I am obviously pleased and honored to be ranked on this ranking of the country’s top residential real estate agents,” Johnson said. “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 career. The level of sales it takes to qualify makes it a truly special recognition.”
