*Statistics used to prepare the Advocate’s 2016 Top Realtors list were compiled solely from those submitted by neighborhood real estate companies and sales statistics reported on behalf of and credited to individual Realtors as of Jan. 31, 2017, to the North Texas Real Estate Information Systems Inc. (NTREIS), a service of the MetroTex Association of Realtors.

Realtors on the List are listed in alphabetical order by last name and were determined based on sales volume for residential: single family, townhouse and condos  reported to NTREIS in Area 12, which is largely composed of the Lakewood/East Dallas neighborhood. Realtors are not required to purchase any advertising or pay any fee to be included on the List; additionally, Realtors not designated as Advocate Top Realtors were offered the opportunity to advertise in the special section.

Sales results for some Realtors on the List may include sales made by other members of the Advocate Top Realtor’s team if reported to NTREIS under the Advocate Top Realtor’s name. We attempted to contact each individual Advocate Top Realtor to give him/her the option of having his/her team name and/or team members included with the individual Advocate Top Realtor listing, but not all designated Realtors could be contacted.

Past team members may or may not be included on the List if the individually designated Advocate Top Realtor chose to exclude existing team members or Realtors no longer associated with the team. Closed sales volume for the period from January 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016, is included in the calculations; calculations are affected by the fact that not all Realtors choose to report some or all of their sales to NTREIS, and so-called “hip-pocket” sales, non-MLS sales and sales reported to NTREIS after Jan. 31, 2017, are not included in the calculations used to determine the Advocate Top Realtors.

Designated Top Realtors can use the Advocate Top Realtor/2016 logo in future advertising provided that the designated Top Realtor appears in the advertisement; team members listed with the Top Realtor are not authorized to use the Advocate Top Realtor logo without participation in the advertisement of the designated Top Realtor. NTREIS is not associated with the Advocate or the Advocate Top Realtor list and has no responsibility for the Advocate Top Realtor list.

Sales statistics used to determine the List are believed to be accurate as of Jan. 31, 2017; the Advocate assumes no liability for inaccurate, unreported or otherwise incorrect information that may have resulted in the inclusion or exclusion of a Realtor(s) from the List. Data for the 2017 List will be compiled on Jan. 14, 2018, for sales in 2017.
