Silverthorne, Colorado, July 19, 2022
Ned Walley of Nelson Walley Real Estate was named one of America’s most productive sales associates as a part of RealTrends + Tom Ferry America’s Best, a state-by-state ranking report produced by RealTrends and Tom Ferry International. He has earned recognition as part of the top 1.5% of Real Estate professionals in the nation, and ranked number 2 in Summit County, Colorado, and  28 in the state of Colorado. 

RealTrends America’s Best Real Estate Professionals ranked over 23,500 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2021. All production numbers are independently verified by a third party to ensure accuracy and report integrity. This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents the top 1.5 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.

“Congratulations to Ned Walley who made America’s Best,” says Tom Ferry, owner and founder of Tom Ferry International. "I have the pleasure of working with successful real estate professionals day in and day out, and I know all the hard work, late nights, and huge effort that goes into achieving such incredible results," says Ferry. “There are multiple ways to become successful in real estate. Yet, despite the differences, the real estate professionals on this list have one thing in common—they are simply the best. Congratulations to all recipients of this prestigious recognition.”

America’s Best are ranked in ten categories:
By Transactions 
Individuals by Transaction Sides
Teams, Small (2-5 licensed members) by Transaction Sides

Teams, Medium (6-10) by Transaction Sides
Teams, Large (11-20) by Transaction Sides
Team, Mega (21+) by Transaction Sides

By Volume 
Individuals by Volume 
Teams, Small (2-5) by Volume 
Teams, Medium (6-10) by Volume 
Teams, Large (11-20) by Volume 
Team, Mega (21+) by Volume

To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2021. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume. 

"Those individual agents and teams who make up the 2022 America’s Best represent only about 1.5% of all Realtors® in the country yet account for over 10% of the closed transactions, and more than 16% of all the sales volume closed last year,” says Steve Murray, Special Advisor to HW Media LLC. “To say that Ned Walley is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is extraordinary.”
