We’re thrilled to announce we’ve ranked No. 13 in the 2015 REAL Trends 500, bumping us five places from the No. 18 slot last year. The report, based on dollar volume of sales, ranks the country’s largest and most successful residential real estate firms and is the most trusted standard of performance measuring these leading brokerages.
Thanks to our hardworking and immensely talented agents, we saw double-digit growth, outpacing other top grossing companies with lower year-over-year gains: our company‐wide sales volume of $5.3 billion in 2014 represented a 14% jump from 4.7 billion in 2013. Our Connecticut expansion, which began with the opening of our Greenwich office, brought an additional $500 million in sales alone in 2014. That office is currently ranked No. 1 in Greenwich based on total dollar volume.
Additionally, Houlihan Lawrence agents were responsible for one out of every three homes sold in Westchester County in 2014 and one out of every four homes sold in Putnam County.
“We are extremely proud of the collective achievements of the over 1,200 agents in the Houlihan Lawrence family,” said Stephen Meyers, President and CEO of Houlihan Lawrence. “The firm’s 125 year heritage of success is grounded on providing superior client service with experienced analysis, local knowledge and continued innovation. Our hardworking and immensely talented agents have placed Houlihan Lawrence as a nationally ranked top tier brokerage.”
