The first non-nominated ranking of Queensland’s agents, the “A List”, will be released next week as each of the leading agents come together for an A List-only event in Brisbane on 12 November.
The agents, from geographically diverse pockets of the state, were identified based on their successes and stock volumes using information available on agent activity, listings, marketing and method of sale. The data was then verified by analysts.
This is the first event of its kind in Queensland, given the list of agents has been compiled without agent input using stock numbers and results. Ordinarily, agents submit applications for similar awards.
The leaders on the A list hold the lion’s share of activity in their local markets, such as Ben Chick from Harcourts in McKay and Michael Willems of Ray White in Surfers Paradise who has sold $75million worth of property so far in 2013.
The members of the A List will attend an exclusive conference in November with a wealth of speakers including internationally renowned Michael Duff who works with elite performers in the business and sporting worlds. He helps people understand the traits of high performers and works with them to create performance breakthroughs.
President of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland, Anton Kardash, will also present on the future of the state’s real estate industry.
The A List event attendees will also have a chance to hear from other thought-leaders at the top of the real estate industry. Two panels will be run featuring fellow A Listers including Byrony O’Neill from McGrath Paddington and Mark Mason of Remax in Alexandra Hills.
With market variations, the figures allowed for city and country agents to make the exclusive ranks.
The A List event is sponsored by Mercedes Benz (Brisbane).
