Wes Madden of Madden Real Estate Makes Real Trends, Inc. and The Wall Street Journal “Top Thousand” List of America’s Real Estate Professionals
Wes Madden, CEO/Broker of Madden Real Estate, was recently recognized as a part of the “Top Thousand” list of America’s top 1,000 real estate sales professionals and teams by REAL Trends, Inc. and The Wall Street Journal. The “Top Thousand” list is separated into four categories, each with 250 designees recognized as the top one half of one percent of nearly 1 million licensed REALTORS® nationwide. Madden says, “We’re honored to be recognized with the top real estate teams in the country. This achievement is a byproduct of my team’s daily persistence and hard work to serve our clients.” With 531 closed transaction sides for the year 2012, Madden Real Estate is ranked 22nd amongst the top real estate teams in the United States, and leads the top real estate teams for closed transaction sides in Alaska.
In a press release from Real Trends, Publisher Steve Murray says, “These leading real estate sales professionals average more than 140 closed transactions and more than $50 million in closed sales volume last year... Given that the national averages are less than ten closed transactions and less than $1.2 million in closed volume per agent or team, these results speak to the extraordinary success of the Top Thousand.”
Wes Madden began serving the community as a real estate agent in 2009 following a medical retirement from the Army. As the CEO/Broker of Madden Real Estate, Madden quickly rose to the top of his market and consistently ranks as the #1 REALTOR® in the state of Alaska. As a retired Army Black Hawk pilot and Global War on Terrorism veteran, Madden and his team understand the challenges military families face during the relocation process and cater to their specific needs when buying or selling a home in Alaska. “It’s an honor and a privilege to be able to serve those who serve us,” says Madden.
