Designated Top Reno-Tahoe Firm and in the Top 200 Nationwide 

One of the most trusted and leading sources of real estate information has again ranked Dickson Realty the leading real estate brokerage firm in Reno-Tahoe.

REAL Trends, a national publishing and communications company based in Denver, Colo., has Dickson Realty on its prestigious list, the “REAL Trends 500,” an annual study that represents the standard of measuring performance of the nation’s leading realty service firms.

Dickson Realty is the leading Reno-Tahoe firm in the Top 500 and is tabbed the 197th largest real estate firm in the nation by dollar sales volume, and the 78th largest privately owned independent real estate firm in the nation by number of transactions.

Now in its 31st year, the study remains the undisputed leading report ranking the performance of the top residential real estate brokerage firms. Firms are ranked by both sales volume and transaction sides. A side is when a real estate firm represents either the buyer or the seller in a real estate transaction. Due to the requirement that all information be independently verified, the REAL Trends 500 remains the trusted source for information about the performance of these firms.

“Being ranked high on this prestigious national list and first in Reno-Tahoe is an honor, and a reflection of our commitment to the communities we serve with the best in real estate,” said Nancy Fennell, president of Dickson Realty. “It is important to give our clients exceptional service with buying and/or selling their home. Dickson Realty agents are experts providing experience and market leadership. The ranking is a true testament to these values.”

REAL Trends reports listed Dickson Realty with 3,061 closed transaction sides and $1,315,884,834 in sales volume in 2017.

This year’s survey represents the most comprehensive collection of data assembled on the leaders of the residential brokerage industry. Numbers are documented by outside accounting firms.

“Housing sales in the nation were up 1.1 percent in 2017 from 2016. REAL Trends 500 firms were up 3.3 percent in the same period,” said Steve Murray, president of REAL Trends. “For the fourth year in a row, the nation’s largest brokerage firms gained market share.”

It took 1,899 transactions to be included in this year’s REAL Trends 500, up from a minimum of 1,843 transactions a year ago. In 2016, there were 235 firms recording over $1 billion in residential sales while there were 274 firms that accomplished this in 2017.
