MARLTON (Feb. 15) – RE/MAX Connection Realtors was the number one-ranked RE/MAX real estate company in New Jersey in 2011 and had three of the top four ranked individual agents in the state.

The three RE/MAX Connection offices – in Marlton, Mantua and Turnersville – successfully closed 1,417 transactions, more than any other multi-office operation in the state, as well as closing more than $218 million dollars in real estate transactions.  The company also ranked third statewide in overall agent commissions.

RE/MAX Connection agent Mark Petracci, from the Mantua office, was – for the third-straight year -- the state’s number one RE/MAX agent.  Joining him at the top of the list were Turnersville colleagues David Beach at number three in the state and Joseph Granato at number four.

Among individual office locations, RE/MAX Connection’s Turnersville operation was second in the state in 2011 with the Marlton office being ranked number five.

"We have always said the best agents in the state work at RE/MAX Connection, the best real estate agency in the state,” said Christopher J. Brown, CEO of RE/MAX Connection.  “This year’s rankings, once again, prove that point.

“Our goal is to produce the best results every day for our clients as we help them buy or sell property,” Brown continued, “and we are very proud of this recognition of our collective hard work.”

Three other agents from the RE/MAX Connection Turnersville office also received high honors in the 2011 rankings.  John Swartz, at number six, and Christopher McKenty, at number seven, finished in the top 10 in the Team Sales category for the year.  In addition, Peter Sklikas received the “First Year Performance Award” as the agent who posted the best sales numbers among those joining RE/MAX midyear.

"While other companies in this economy are having a hard time closing deals, RE/MAX Connection agents have adapted and overcome these challenges,” Brown explained.  “Among the new techniques our agents are implementing to do this is our Home Price Protection program.”

Home Price Protection is a financial product that provides a payout to homeowners in the event the relative value of their home declines at the time they sell, regardless of what price the home sells for.  It is available exclusively in South Jersey by RE/MAX Connection.

Among other individual honors, a total of 36 agents from the three offices achieved three different sales levels of accomplishment.  The highest ranking, Platinum Club status, was reached by three agents from the Turnersville office: Joseph Granato, Christopher McKenty and Peter Sklikas.

In addition, 17 RE/MAX Connection agents reached Executive Club status:

“We are especially proud that, despite there being more people and more homes in other portions of the state,” said Kevin Bayzath, Broker of Record for RE/MAX Connection, “our three South Jersey offices, and our outstanding agents, closed more transactions than the competition.”
