A total of 74 Allen Tate Realtors and Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks Realtors® and teams have been ranked among America’s best real estate agents, according to the 2024 RealTrends Verified + Tom Ferry The Thousand agent and team rankings, an annual ranking report produced by REAL Trends, the nation’s leading publisher of trends and analysis of the residential real estate brokerage industry.

The annual rankings are sponsored by Tom Ferry International, a top coaching and training company, and are published in the Wall Street Journal. The list ranks top sales associates and teams in each state and metropolitan statistical area (MSA) by transaction sides and sales volume for the previous year.

Allen Tate and Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks agents and teams were ranked by state in multiple categories including individual agents by transaction sides, individual agents by sales volume, agent teams (small, medium, large, and mega) by transaction sides, and agent teams (small, medium, large, and mega) by sales volume. Agents named to the list must meet minimum production thresholds:

An Individual Agent must close 40 residential transaction sides OR $16 million in closed sales volume

A Team must close 60 residential transaction sides OR $24 million in closed sales volume

Those named to the list represent the top 1.5 percent of more than 1.6 million real estate professionals in the United States.

Melanie Fink with Allen Tate Realtors Lake Keowee Seneca ranked No. 3 in South Carolina with $92,376,701 in closed sales volume last year.
