(Reno, NV) – REAL Trends, Inc. has released its 10th annual real estate ranking in conjunction with the Wall Street Journal. The ranking, called The Thousand, has named Sarah E. Carmona of Dreams Realty the #1 individual agent in the state of Nevada and #39 in the nation.
Developed with the Wall Street Journal, the Thousand is a national awards ranking identifying the top 1,000 real estate sales professionals and teams in the nation.
“These leading real estate sales professionals have shown that in up markets, down markets and flat markets, they know how to grow and prosper. 2014 was actually a down year in unit sales, yet these top performing sales agents and teams increased their business and their market share,” said Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends The Thousand. “Given that the national averages are fewer than 10 closed transactions and less than $1.2 million in closed volume per agent or team, and that these top people did more than 20 times that amount, these results speak to the extraordinary success of The Thousand.”
Carmona earned a Bachelor of Science degree in economics from the University of Nevada, Reno. As one of the youngest owners in the market, she provides the team at Dreams Realty with knowledge of forecasting and trends in the local market. In addition to her role with Dreams Realty, Carmona is a co-founder of the Dreams Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit that has given more than $325,000 to local individuals and organizations since 2012. She has also purchased manufactured homes for northern Nevada veterans and helped fixed income clients enter home ownership and build equity. She is nationally recognized as a top Hispanic Real Estate Professional, ranking as high as #12 in the nation, and is the only agent in Nevada to rank four years in a row.
