Real Estate magazine’s 3rd Annual Realtors on the Rise honors 50 of the industry’s up-and-coming agents
By Stephanie Andre
RISMedia, August 1, 2007–Over the past five years, the real estate industry has seen many things: the best market ever; a progression to a more balanced, more competitive market; and a rush of newbies greater than anyone’s seen before. To that end, this year’s crop of Realtors on the Rise winners reflects a sizeable showing of quality agents who have entered the market within the past five years.
From their impressive sales figures, to their innovative marketing strategies, to their community involvement, Real Estate magazine’s editors have chosen 50 Realtors on the Rise, selected from hundreds of candidates. We congratulate this year’s winners on stepping up, pushing forward and committing to the real estate marketplace. Our first winner is:
Liz Carter & Team Realty
Starting ’em early: Acord began working at Liz Carter & Team Realty at age 18. A family affair: Acord is the third generation of broker/owner Liz Carter’s family to work on the team. Multitasker: Acord is also the contract negotiator for the team and has “gotten our list price-to-sell-price ratio for our sellers to 99.3 percent,” says Carter.
Acord is the third generation of broker/owner Liz Carter’s family to be part of the Liz Carter & Team Realty. She started as the company’s “runner,” then progressed rapidly to listings manager, contract negotiator, and two years ago, became a full-time listing agent and prospector for new business. She still does all the negotiating for the team on every file.
