Nashville Realtor One of Top Hispanic Realtors in the Country

Nashville real estate agent Debra Beagle was recently named one of the top 250 Hispanic Realtors in the country, out of 50,000, by the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP). The organization recognized the top performing Hispanic agents, based on the total number of sales transactions facilitated in 2014.

A broker with The Ashton Real Estate Group of RE/MAX Elite, Beagle was the top Hispanic agent on the list in Middle Tennessee and one of only two in the entire state.

“I grew up speaking Spanish with my Cuban mother, and looked for an opportunity to serve the Spanish-speaking population when I came to Nashville,” Beagle said. “I do that by helping families and businesses achieve the American dream of property ownership every day.”

Beagle, who serves on the board of the NAHREP Nashville chapter, specializes in listings, new construction sales and staging. She recently appeared on the reality TV show Thicker than Water, which is filmed in Murfreesboro, where she helped a cast member buy a home. That episode will air this fall on Bravo.

This designation adds to the growing list of awards earned by the Gary Ashton Group of RE/MAX Elite. The group was recently honored by RE/MAX International as the No. 6 Real Estate team in the country and the No. 9 Real Estate team worldwide. The team was also honored by RE/MAX of Tennessee as the No. 1 Real Estate team in the state by transactions and commissions.

“Debra is a dedicated professional who strives for the highest levels of customer service,” Gary Ashton, of The Ashton Real Estate Group of RE/MAX Elite, said. “Her unique skill set helps us serve more people in the community, which makes her a vital member of our team.”

RE/MAX Agents Dominate ‘Canada’s Best’

RE/MAX agents dominated the inaugural REAL Trends’  “Canada’s Best Real Estate Agents,” making up 82% of the top-performing agents included in the ranking.

That included 193- or 82%- agents and teams from RE/MAX. No other brand qualified more than seven. Sixty-seven RE/MAX agents placed for both transaction ends and sales volume, compared to 14 competitors.

“RE/MAX agents simply outsell and outperform their competitors in Canada. It’s been that way for nearly 30 years,” said Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX CEO“Buyers and sellers know they can trust our professionals when they’re looking for help with their most precious real estate investment. We’re proud of our agents’ hard work and commitment.”

RE/MAX agents dominated all four categories of the survey:

  • Top Individuals by Transaction Ends: RE/MAX agents claimed 54 of the 64 spots, including 9 of the top 10.
  • Top Individuals by Sales Volume: RE/MAX agents earned 70 of 82, including 41 of top 50.
  • Top Teams by Transaction Ends: RE/MAX agents earned 59 of 67, including 42 of top 50.
  • Top Teams by Sales Volume: RE/MAX agents earned 77 of 103, including 18 of top 25.

Among the 131 individuals and teams ranked by most transaction ends, 113 (86%) were RE/MAX agents.

RE/MAX leaders by category included:

  • Sam Corea of RE/MAX House of Real Estate in Calgary, AB – No. 1 individual in sales volume with $948.7 million.
  • The Joyce Tourney Team of RE/MAX Crown Real Estate – North in Regina, SK – No. 1 team in ends closed with 637.

Associates, CMN Hospitals Celebrate RE/MAX Month of Miracles

CMN

Annual Celebration Strengthens Support for Sick and Injured Children

RE/MAX and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® (CMN Hospitals®) kick off the third annual Month of Miracles tomorrow in a collaborative effort to increase awareness for sick and injured children. Throughout the month of August, RE/MAX Miracle Agents, Offices and Teams are encouraged to make a donation to local CMN Hospitals® after each closed residential or commercial property sale.

 

One-hundred percent of the donations made by RE/MAX Associates during the Month of Miracles and year-round stay local and help fund life-saving treatments, medical equipment and valuable research for 170 member hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.

 

“Leveraging the power of RE/MAX Associates during the Month of Miracles encourages a national effort to help kids who need it most,” said Mike Reagan, RE/MAX Senior Vice President, Business Alliances. “Every hour, CMN Hospitals treat 675 kids with trauma, 39 kids with diabetes, 92 kids with cancer, 39 kids in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU®) and 97 kids for surgeries. As business leaders, we have an incredible opportunity to show our support.”

 

Although donations are made throughout the year, August serves as a reminder that RE/MAX Associates are invested in the well-being of their local communities, particularly the children. The relationship between RE/MAX and CMN Hospitals began in 1992 and Associates across the U.S. and Canada have since raised more than $130 million. In 2013 alone, Associates raised nearly $8.2 million.

 

There are a variety of ways to participate in the Month of Miracles celebration. A RE/MAX Miracle Home or commercial Miracle Property is recognizable by a rider on top of RE/MAX yard signs. Many homes on remax.com are flagged as a Miracle Home with the CMN Hospitals yellow and red balloon icon.

 

In support of this month’s celebration, HGTV is expected to launch “The Right Home” sweepstakes; one grand-prize winner will receive $5,000 toward their right home as well as a matched $5,000 donation to their local CMN Hospital. MFS Supply and Realtor.com also have volunteered to participate in the month-long campaign.
