Meybohm Realtors ranked 93rd among more than 80,000 real estate brokerage firms for number of homes sold in 2007. The list of the top 100 real estate companies is in the latest issue of Realtor Magazine, which is published by the National Association of Realtors.
"It is a real tribute to our real estate agents and to the Augusta and North Augusta and Aiken markets. Most companies that receive the top 100 ranking are from major metropolitan areas," company President E.G. Meybohm said in a statement.
Meybohm recorded 4,588 "transaction sides" last year, according to the magazine.
Every real estate transaction has two sides: the buyer and the seller. If the brokerage represents both sides, it gets credit for two transaction sides. If the brokerage lists only the house or found a buyer for another company's listing, it gets one transaction side.
Meybohm has 275 agents in eight area offices.
The national average among the top 100 companies was 7.3 transaction sides per agent. Meybohm associates averaged more than 17 transaction sides per agent. It placed fourth in the country for agent productivity.
"Even though our company is considered large for this area, this ranking shows it is one of the most productive in the nation," said Bill Boatman, Meybohm executive vice president.
Though Meybohm had sales volume of $827.7 million in 2007, that wasn't enough to crack the top 100 list for that category. No. 100 on the Realtor Magazine sales volume list was a Re/Max agency in Brentwood, Tenn., that had a volume of $1.09 billion.
Tops in the nation was the 930-office NRT LLC in Parsippany, N.J., which had 326,323 transaction sides in 2007 and a sales volume of $174 billion.
